I know this is a bit off topic but check out this video for an example of a misunderstanding between a Chinese lady and
an Aussie politician. It's pretty funny.

Well I for one am thankful someone wants to spend money in this State. Beggars can't be chosers as they say.

My sentiments exactly. Well done to this Tangcheng group for trying to bulk up glorious nation of Kazakhstan... I mean, glorious city of Adelaide.
Now you're playing with power.

I don't want to sound negative but these Tangcheng buildings remind me of 'The Precinct' project.

As part of 'The Precinct' project there were about 5 buildings planned and in the end only 1 decent
size building (Altitude) was developed.

Very Very different companies. One backed by a Chinese Billionaire and the other run by monkeys.

He might be very rich but still he's only going to go ahead with these buildings if he can make
a profit from them.

In July 2010, the company bought the second site which located in 399 King William Street, Adelaide SA 5000. The site area is about 493 square meters and it closes to the train and bus station, the traffic is very convenient. The planning application of this project has been approved by Adelaide City Council. It plans overall 15 levels of student accommodation. The ground level designs for the lobby and reception, and a restaurant which is about 200 square meters; the restaurant not only services for students, and also services for the public. The design of Student accommodation is a new-style design, each accommodation includes two rooms or three rooms; each room has independent bedroom, study area and bathroom; each accommodation has a sharing kitchen and lounge. In the building, it also designed public's laundry and activity rooms for the students. This student accommodation building will provide better live and study space to the students in Adelaide.

This looks like a thin bland looking building that belongs in a major Japanese city, not Adelaide. The height-width ratio is rather silly.

The great wall of Adelaide! I'm still willing to accept this, for the sake of bulk and stretching the skyline South...

+1. I like the wall effect - gives a lot of bulk from the south.

1. Not the colour of sandstone
2. It's not a squat box
3. Not completely glass clad.

Summary - Whilst the building is not a stunner, it's different!

I suppose something short and stumpy is more Adelaide?
