[U/C] Re: Adelaidean | 11 Frome Street | 135m | 37 Levels | Mixed Use | New tallest

There was a considerable concrete pour today. i drove past the site at 10:30 and there was four concrete trucks lined up.

I drove past Dwell too. Still looks like a hot cup of fat with a hair in it.

[PRO] Re: 74-79 King William Street | 136m | 42 Levels | Mixed | Potential new tallest

I don’t understand when things close we’ll before anything has even been approved. Does this mean it’s certain to at least past approval stage? That people are really committed to this project? Possibly a stupid question but if anyone cares to endulge, be my guest. :) The previous tenants would hav...

[APP] Re: Her Majesty’s Theatre Expansion

Good to see this one underway. Hansen and Yuncken are definitely getting a lot of the construction contracts of late, along with Watpac they seem like they're building half the CBD these days. Sorry to take this a little off track, but can anyone tell me if Multiplex have constructed any buildings ...

I believe the concrete will be painted.

There was at one stage a proposal I believe to clade the upper western side with patterned solar panels, to create a faux glass facade and to increase the energy rating of the tower. Not sure if this will happen, maybe Ben could share if he heard anything?

[U/C] Re: Renaissance Arcade | 132m | 40 Levels | Realm Apartments

In fact, looking at the site, I wouldn't be surprised if the core rose a few levels, then basement excavation and pouring commences.

Still, it's all a guess!

Great shot! It's officially on its way up now! That's the first formed structure pour for this job. All of the other exposed concrete here has been exposed by excavation.

I noticed the first few coloured balcony walls are now being applied on the northern and southern faces. There is a final crane tower segment still to be installed too. To be honest, I'm still not 100% sure on this design. Hopefully once all of the concrete is painted/clad I'll be proven wrong (whic...

[U/C] Re: New Calvary Hospital | 60m | 12 lvls | Cnr Angas/Pulteney

The eastern core has topped out, with the form work being removed. Also the "tower" cladding is being applied on the southern edge. Being full glass rather than the podium concrete and glass it certainly has an impact.

I reckon this will be quite the looker once finished.

[U/C] Re: Lot 101 Synagogue Place | 75m | 21 levels | Dwell Adelaide

This tower is an absolute blight on the skyline. My hopes for something decent with Adelaidean aren't that high. I'm expecting a facade of almost transparent glass and a miss mash of curtains. Completely bereft of any redeeming features.

Work on first Floor as at 17/5/2018. I don't think the first floor level covers the whole site?
No they don't, there will be a second tower on the remaining section os the site.

[U/C] Re: Renaissance Arcade | 132m | 40 Levels | Realm Apartments

The sequence of photos (thanks!) clearly shows that the excavators at the back have been removing piles which look to have been created fairly recently. Has anybody found out why? Were they necessary to shore up something until something else happened, and now they are in the way? Hi there, the pil...

Hey Pikey, Can you explain / expand some of your explanations for those of us who are mere office workers :) Algernon (Yob) beat me to it! Basically, the corebox slipform will be formed soon, enabling the first pour of the service core to happen. If you look closely in your last shot, you'll see on...
