Actually, from my drive just then down shepherds hill road, the crane looks higher? You should be able to gauge clearly from your place Ben!

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

Not sure if the crane is coming down or they’re adding more pieces. There’s two pieces one on the ground and one up the top. It does look shorter. I think it's coming down. All of the lubeca screens on the Western side are gone, presumably they'd use the crane to remove the rest before taking down ...

The prefab concrete panels for the roof level and lift over run are being installed now.

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

There still should be a lift motor over run and a roof feature to come, which should add more final height. Once cleaned up it should look even better! Wasn't the lift stuff in the basement for this build? Looking at the plans, no. Lift motor may be in the basement but there is definitely an overru...

Thank you :)

Finally a view these towers look taller.
it's deceiving, from my place westpac still looks higher.
From Belair road, Westpac and Frome look identical in height. There's quite a gap to Realm, so I'm presuming there's more structural height to be added on top of the core.

[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

This roof can and will be repurposed elsewhere in the greater Memorial Drive redevelopment. I can’t remember where I saw it but this roof can be use to create a second smaller open air Centre court style on the current site of the grass courts. The master plan shows the structure along with the main...

That’s probably a sign of the slip form on the core is about to be removed. What you pointed out is the external stairwell that allows access to different decks within the form work.

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

Whilst this tower will be the tallest above ground by three meters, when using AHD (Australian Height Datum, or height above sea level) data, Westpac will still be slightly taller (I believe by less than a meter.) The positioning of the two towers make height comparisons difficult. The view from the...

The final floor and roof level are now being formed with pre fab panels. One thing is for sure there is hardly any moving space between the hook and the top floor slab, they're running super tight tolerances. Seems insane that there couldn't be a temporary RTCC clearance, even just for safety sake.

Also the first half floor (level 36?) has been formed up from what I can see from my vantage point.

That's an old render, notice the corner balconies in the centre section? They were removed in a design revision, which presumably was when the facade change occurred.
