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

From the limited info that I have, there is a three month exception here. There is more height to go on this crane, the current crane height is close to the final finished height of the tower. So Kyren have been granted a 3-month permit to lift the RTCC? I've seen the crane permits for other sites ...

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

The top of the building is essentially at the RTCC, so I'm not sure how they'll complete the building without the crane breaching the RTCC. Would generally need 15-20m clearance between top of crane and top of building (for a hammerhead). Either they have a magic way of constructing the top of the ...

I think there's been another core rise, from what I can see from my office.

[APP] Re: 274 North Terrace 52m | 16 Levels | Hotel

The site next door is already earmarked for development, any treatment on the Eastern side will be covered soon enough anyhow (there's already a building scope for the site mentioned on this tower's DA paperwork. The treatment on the blank wall is a hell of a lot better than other much higher profil...

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

I'd love to see a commercial tower with a slightly smaller floor plate, taller, but using curves in its design to be sympathetic to the existing redeveloped zones (casino) but also incorporating bluestone features and elements reflective of Government house. This is probably Adelaide's most importan...

Just quietly, I didn't realise this had external glass elevators for the hotel access! How cool! They're situated on the southern side of the tower.

Getting closer to some news. InDaily reporting that the Currie Street Adelaide Metro InfoCentre (site of this proposal) isn't having its lease extended, which expires next month. https://indaily.com.au/news/local/2019/08/06/adelaide-metro-office-closing-to-make-way-for-high-rise-hotel/ Driving past...

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)...

I was always confused by this one... is the Vibe Hotel going to part of the now completed building or is it the next stage / tower 2? If the latter, I hope that means something else will be shooting up before too long. http://www.sensational-adelaide.com/forum/download/file.php?id=3289 It's tower 2...

Is there a DA for this yet? I agree with everyone's sentiments. It looks quite nice.
