I am glad to see something finally happening but the design is appalling. It is horribly kitsch. We deserve better than a disneyland version of a european city.
Adelaide is a young city we should embrace this and not pretend to be an old european city.
The old rules of scale, bulk, articulation, pattern etc still apply but should be interpreted in a modern way.
Has the Architect been to the site (or even Adelaide). I think the streetscape elevation would show what a poor fit it is.

Will wrote:I completely disagree. North Adelaide is a very historical area, a simple walk through the streets will reveal how well preserved North Adelaide is. As a result development in North Adelaide should blend in with the neighbouring area. I feel this development fits in very well with the historic vibe of North Adelaide. I love modern architecture, but North Adelaide is a very sensitive area, where something modern would look strange. Futuristic designs are better suited to the CBD.
