[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

In my opinion, when you are talking about major sporting infrastructure in one of the 5 biggest cities in Australia.... any investment under, say, $50 million is nothing more than a renovation. Most likely putting lipstick on a pig, as the saying goes.

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

I would just like to know, when pumping concrete to 3+ levels and more.... how is it done??

I work in heavy industry, but not construction. Is it passed directly from a truck, or into a tank/hopper and then pumped up?

Is it even pumped, or a screw-feeder type set-up used?

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

Also, surely they could come up with something a bit nicer than those dark coloured pavers. Maybe it's for a practical reason (don't show the dirt and grime so much), but they'll give the area a cold feel and look about it. We need the area to look inviting for people to want to spend time there.

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

Walking down the southern end of KW as I often do, and noticed that the shore repair shop and boutique at 381 have been vacated. A sign in the window says that demolition is commencing soon. Anyone have any news/goss/rumours/facts on what might be happening here? It's the property directly next door...

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)...

Once the office tower is built this view will look very different. Love it !!


Thank you.
Yes, will the new tower completely block out the Stamford Hotel building from that view? It's one of my least favourite on North Terrace, so dated and desperately in need of an external make-over.

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

The best thing about this building and the forthcoming Westin is that, even though they're not great buildings, they help to block out a collection of worse buildings in the view from Vic Square. Especially City Central Tower 2 (or Ernst & Young building - EY is surely the worst rebrand ever). Yeah...

Had beers sitting on Rundle Street today. The tower proper is much better than the podium. Just my opinion. Overall, happy with this being our new tallest 😀 I also enjoy an afternoon beer in the sun on rundle street. Unfortunately this tower is going to block the sun for those sitting on rundle str...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

As usual, no pics from myself. But walked down Pirie Street today. Number 74 has signage and under a full refurb.... 6 or 7 level building, Maras the owner/developer.
