[VIS] Re: 207 Pulteney Street | 195m | 60 Levels | Mixed Use

Which one is the spire? I can't think of any building in Adelaide which have spires. Not to take this too far off-topic, but Spire was an approximately 100m proposal in Adelaide last decade that never got up, but was to be located on Bentham Street. There's a video of it on YouTube: https://www.you...

Looks like most of the concrete on the northern face has now been installed.

Appreciate the update and for confirming the location. Good to have someone involved in the industry that is willing to post here. Slightly devastated that the name DOMINATOR 1 will be scrapped since it brought me so much amusement, but in all honesty it's a good decision. Looking forward to hopeful...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

I wonder if anyone can locate any pictures of this mysterious cinema? Obviously it existed but it would be interesting to see some photos. A quick search on the Internet suggests it was a venue for the 1978 and 1979 Adelaide International Film Festivals, but that's about all I could find. My interes...

[U/C] Re: 316-320 South Terrace | 51m | 14lvls | August Towers

A few more from this morning. Looks like they've installed another level of that louvred ventilation filter since EBG's photo. The northern wall looks pretty disappointing at this stage. They should have found a way to use that grey cladding on the edges. Not a huge fan of those two levels that sort...

From today. Noticed that this has a bit of prominence from North Terrace now, so ducked into Adelaide Uni's Napier Plaza to get a good angle. Not particularly pretty, but hey, it matches its neighbour.

Quite pleased with how this has turned out. Only minor complaint would be the windows on the top floor of the southern wall, they look a bit out of place in my opinion.

[SWP] Re: Former RAH Site (Design Competition)

I would agree with Ben, and to a slightly lesser extent Patrick's sentiments. We have such a huge, relatively underdeveloped CBD. Access to this area should be kept for the people. Another thing; as can be seen in the video in that article, I just don't understand why they're getting rid of the Elea...

Looks pretty nice, although I'm not convinced about the eastern wall yet. I'll need to take a look at it in the flesh at some stage. I wonder what they plan to do about that annoying little sliver of the old building facade which still exists between this one and their neighbour? Isn't that little b...

You guys crack me up. Thanks for humouring my ridiculous observation.

Judging by Ser Noit of Loit's photo, it looks like the Gerard and Goodman building still lives. There's a tiny bit of wall attached to the building on the right that they haven't yet demolished for some reason.

Here's one I took from the passenger's seat today. Southern wall of the tower is nearing completion externally, and it looks like they've started doing some noticeable work on the top of the old house.

It's the effort that counts. I also feel a bit self-conscious about workers and more so random pedestrians judging me when taking photos of buildings. Looking forward to this one. It has a high quality design and will make a large impact in such a (currently) flat part of the city, until Two Adelaid...

This is probably going to sound utterly, utterly stupid and ridiculous, but does anyone else see Imperial TIE Fighter wings in the hexagonal-shaped "cracks" in the panels between the circles? They show up best in EBG's picture. You can also sort of see it in the render on the first page. I feel like...

Yeah, this is by far my favourite of the three student accommodations going up. It's quite imposing and to me it looks taller than 68m. That's good because I was a bit worried the building would be a bit too chunky. The precast concrete on this one looks the whitest interestingly enough, even though...

Which buildings are getting demolished? It's a bit of a pain to explain since the area is such a mess of little buildings, but the longitudinal boundaries of the site are the western wall of the Ruthven Mansions building and the eastern wall of that three-storey building painted blue on Austin Stre...
