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

From what I can see there's some prefabricated concrete panels added to the core now. Definitely getting taller.

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

I was really hoping that when viewed from my place this would look higher than westpac but it's looking more and more as if that wont be the case. hopefully it wont take another 33 years for something taller to go up. There should still be another two floors plus roof feature to come too. Should gi...

[COM] Re: Renaissance Arcade | 132m | 40 Levels | Realm Apartments

Not complete but I took this yesterday. realm looks bigger from south side. Ben, if you have a tripod use that and a spirit level. The vertical lines need to be perpendicular to the floor. Of course try your best. I straightened the image up and used guide lines to see how much higher Realm is comp...

I just checked today, level 37 is exposed on the core, so 38 in the box. Potentially three more rises (depending on the size of the lift motor room.)

Drove past this yesterday and the facade is appearing. Nice dark glass too.

[COM] Re: Renaissance Arcade | 132m | 40 Levels | Realm Apartments

i think level 39 is in the box. So two more rises plus plant room, possibly?

Looks taller than Adelaidean as mentioned. Obviously once Adelaidean receives its top two floors plus roof feature it will look taller again.

This really is the most unimaginative, bland, vanilla design that I've seen in a very long time.

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

Looking over the plans again there is still another two setback floors to go above the current highest floor plate. Still a while to go until top out.

[APP] Re: 203 North Terrace | 109m | 33 levels | Student Accom

Have a read through the DA and see the mandated redesigns. Originally this tower was purely glass, but it was deemed “unsuitable” for North Terrace...

The current design is a directed evolution. The board WANTS this design...

All right hawkeyes, past there this morning and the "yellow frame" that has been on the south face between the balconies has gone. Does this mean there is some sort of design change from this point upward? what was its purpose? I'm not even sure when it was removed. cheers That was a frame for the ...

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

The fact that the core is split into two sections, makes me wonder if there'll be a new slip form added for the smaller section. I believe the top two offset floors have lift access... I'll need to go back and find the plans on the DA. Wouldn't that make it three sections? They already shrank the c...

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

Plus looking at Ben's shot above, the floor plates look like they're at level 32, so there definitely has to be more height to either the core, or the top two offset floors aren't serviced by the core proper....?
