That part of the city has a 21m height limit, so I don't expect anything too exciting. But nevertheless that part of the city is very ugly, and any developement is welcome.

Rather than building overpasses on the tram line, spend money on the heavy rail lines, eg overpass for the Park Tce crossing in Salisbury. How are they going to do the tram stops along King William Street and North Terrace. Assuming they run them down the centre of the road. Are they going to have ...

I reckon the development looks OK. Because when you think about it, it is a public square so there isn't much space for creativity. The council or state governemnt should also think about replacing the Glenelg jetty. It looks tired, ugly and does not adapt to the new Glenelg. The should build someth...

I was having a read of the City Messenger (september 15, 05) and on page 9 there is an add from the council announcing that construction will commence by the end of the year on this development. The first stage will cost $15.3 million and include a new Central Bus Station, a pedestrian link between ...

Pants, you are correct, they are different designs. Urban Construct made some amendments to their initial design. These amendments included a slightly different facade, but they also managed to increase the buildings height to 33.15m (almost a high-rise!) The ACC gave the green light to the amendmen...

I also concur with everyone's opinions. The quality of Adelaide's recent developments is really high, and hopefully as taller development adopt the glass look, the skyline will finally not be dominated by brown brutalist structures. Glass structures also make a city's skyline appear more modern; som...

Great photos Chris, thanks for sharing. Great to see that the speed of construction has finally reached a normal rate. This building is listed on Emporis as reaching a height of 45m, however when it is compared to the 38m tall Eastwest apartments, I think that it will be taller. There are still a fe...

Can anyone confirm that the Santos Crane went up yesterday? I went to the city to take some photos, on Sunday 18. The base of the tower crane was up, but the crane had not been erected at the time. I can confirm is that there appears to be some kind of work on the foundations of the building. Howev...

Went down to Glenelg today, and this development is aleady up to the fifth or sixth level. Whilst I'm not sure, it does appear that it will be slightly taller than the neighbouring Pier Hotel. The other exciting news down at Glenelg is that the council appears to support the plans to install a 'Lond...
