But Hills is a Adelaide company and it was already released last night on 7 news

I hope its City Central and the building is taller than Westpac! :D

Be patient, the media takes a bit of time to drop news out to the public...

I reckon it'd be BHP, to be honest, it's not really a "huge" announcement having Hills move into the city, I mean how many staff could they move into a building anyway, like 10 people?? its not like they can do they manufacturing operations on floors 10-15 or something :P

If it is BHP they've done an extraordinarily good job of keeping it under wraps. Imagine the BHP sign lighting up the Adelaide sky 20 metres above the big W for Westpace - well we can only dream :)

He said that there will be a "significant building" constructed on King William Street. A caller rang in to say the company was BHP, but this is not confirmed. A few other callers are saying that the company is Hills (however, they already have an office in Adelaide).

This announcement was from Michael Harbison and absolutely not a hoax.

This announcement says an iconic Autralian company will be moving to Adelaide. To me it infers not ipresent in Adelaide CBD at present. I thus do not believe it is either the Hills bldg or anytjhing to do with BHP - if my underxtanding of inferences and nuances etc of the english language are correct. Interesting that no announcement by 10.26 eastern standard time.

A significant bldg - could be Repco site

Just had a slight feeling it could be Hills

This is still pretty big news, that building is going to be significant to that part of the city, aswell as the other buildings which will make the area more alive and vibrant.

Southern skyline, here we come! :D

For starters BHP has offices in Grenfell St so they would not be moving
into Adelaide... I reckon it is HILLS and we already know they plan
on moving into a new office building to be built next to the Optus Building
on KWS.
Not a really huge announcement afterall :D

Here's the thread:

Hills will only occupy 2-3 levels.
