[U/C] Re: 27-31 Angas Street | 103m | 30 Levels | Kodo Apartments

I think it would be nice if they painted a smooth gradient on the concrete West side, going from darker green near the bottom to lighter green near the top - matching the change in balcony colour on the East side. As nice as that sounds, I believe it'll be painted in varying shades of grey, matchin...

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

I wish they'd number the cores on these developments. I haven't seen a site in Adelaide do this since City Central 1. Pretty sure 115 KW Street did. Yes 115 KW Street numbered their’s. Yeah, forgot about that one. The numbers on the CC1 core were huge, probably why I remember them so well.

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

Student accommodation and Adelaidean dispute has been decided in favour of Student Accommodation. Are these 2 buildings close enough to the Realm that the combined mass will impact views of Realm. Of or from? Of, would entirely depend on where you're viewing it from. I'd say if you're coming in fro...

[PRO] Re: 29 Twin Street | ~122m | 36lvls | Student accom

The worry is that this tower, although 36 levels in heights is less than $10m in cost and going to the council rather than the DAC. Does not suggest an ornate design. Lets see if the ACC concern about architectural merit is exhibited when the renders of this building are shown. I wouldn't worry abo...

Without sounding childish, but sucked in. If they had done their due diligence and purchased the property, rather than pathetically apply for heritage protection then try this stunt, their northern views would be preserved. What will they do when the carpark/Budget site opposite their site on Frome ...

I wonder why this didn’t work? Was it the marketing ? Who was this aimed at? I’ve heard it was geared toward retirees? From what I understood it was to be a high rise retirement village essentially. It was probably the better design of the 100m+ proposals imho. Shame they couldn't rework it and gea...

It’s worth remembering that there’s a stage two to this development that is taller than this. Exciting times.

They built Dwell. :( Time will tell in regards to demand. Karen haven’t been know to wait around once their developments are approved. They’ll go hard on promotion I'm fully prepared for Adelaidean to be 37 levels of average. I'm sure the facade will be adjusted down to save cost and we'll end up w...

The blank walls are 100% precast concrete, as listed in the DA. "ARTICULATED CONCRETE PRECAST PANELS TO EASTERN FACADE" Eastern side "PRECAST CONCRETE PANEL" Western side. Concrete both ends. Fundamentally, this is a safe, very vanilla design. Not a real surprise from Kyren, expect the final result...

[U/C] Re: 27-31 Angas Street | 103m | 30 Levels | Kodo Apartments

For a tower that has another two core rises to go, that's an extraordinarily amount of space they've left. Ben, how confident are you that it's definitely two climbs left in this? I know it's not always best to go off social media accounts because these guys are arms length from the developer/build...

I think you're right its 3, but there is a jump about to happen anytime now.
I did a quick count myself, and I think it's at 27 now, but I could be wrong!
