[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

I'd love to see a commercial tower with a slightly smaller floor plate, taller, but using curves in its design to be sympathetic to the existing redeveloped zones (casino) but also incorporating bluestone features and elements reflective of Government house. This is probably Adelaide's most importan...

Just quietly, I didn't realise this had external glass elevators for the hotel access! How cool! They're situated on the southern side of the tower.

Getting closer to some news. InDaily reporting that the Currie Street Adelaide Metro InfoCentre (site of this proposal) isn't having its lease extended, which expires next month. https://indaily.com.au/news/local/2019/08/06/adelaide-metro-office-closing-to-make-way-for-high-rise-hotel/ Driving past...

On the Eastern side theres a facade panel that is highly reflective... Just under the floor jump system. Makes me wonder if the facade currently has a protective coating? I'm hearing what you're saying but highly unlikely. Interested to know if any such concept (protective coating to be peeled off)...

Second balcony level, immediate left panel is the highly reflective one, you can see it in the great shot above.

I was always confused by this one... is the Vibe Hotel going to part of the now completed building or is it the next stage / tower 2? If the latter, I hope that means something else will be shooting up before too long. http://www.sensational-adelaide.com/forum/download/file.php?id=3289 It's tower 2...

Is there a DA for this yet? I agree with everyone's sentiments. It looks quite nice.

If the design was something along the lines of the Hines Twin Street proposal, that would be great. Due to the highly prominent location of this tower, I'd hope there's some decent architectural expression here.

Cheers.

Does this top out before construction comes to a halt over the December/January period?
I would say yes, these guys are running on a seven day cycle between core and floor plates. The whole external structure should be well and truly complete by the end of the year.

Well the "gap" is level 21, and just having a look from my vantage point id suggest floor plates are at level 27 and the core is at level 30. Still a fair bit of bulk to go.

[U/C] Re: GPO Exchange | 85m | 22 Levels | Office

My only query is why the BHP sign wasn't put up before the crane was dismantled? Rather than block a portion of the street off in the future with a portable crane to do the job. I'm assuming they'll do it using the buildings BMU. Usually signage is made of lightweight but robust materials, so a BMU...

If my counting is correct the floor plates are up to level 25. It will certainly have some bulk about it once it tops out. We should see the obvious transition to apartment floors soon too, once the form work climbs a few more floors.
