Tip. insert a lower case h before the dot, e.g. ...8P8h.jpg to avoid city block sized images.
Thanks. I wondered about that but it doesn't seem to be working for me so I just deleted the photo.

Are you able to load photos directly from your iPhone camera roll? I saw someone mention it elsewhere.

Haven't tried that. I use a camera as I have greater control over the image even if transfer is more complicated it's worth it for me to have greater control.* If I take a pic on phone or iPad I send it to myself so I can use the Mac to make any adjustments & also to keep pix on file.



* Not that I'm a control freak, of course! I prefer to think of it as 'organised', though some might disagree...

EPSOM PARK ~ ZETLAND

SYMPHONY

Epsom Road

http://www.meriton.com.au/meriton-s-...-a-double-hit/
15 jun 2017

MERITON’S SYMPHONY A DOUBLE HIT


Architect: AJ+C Architects


The Meriton group has orchestrated a development hit with its Symphony towers at Zetland, racing to a sell-out before completion and achieving bullish rents.

The $200 million four-building Symphony, fronting Epsom Road, is due for completion within days.

The ‘all sold’ sign went up at the 220-apartment project last week when a three-bedroom maisonette penthouse sold for $2.315 million – the highest price achieved at Symphony.
Meriton, Australia’s apartment developer and headed by industry veteran Harry Triguboff, embarked on a leasing campaign on behalf of buyers in May and struck immediate success.

“We’ve been nearly run over in the rush,” says Victor Toscano, Meriton’s head of residential leasing.

“We’ve been achieving higher then expected rental prices that top averages for Zetland and the supply of available apartments has dwindled rapidly.”

Mr Toscano says the rush has left only a handful of apartments in the first release with the final stage due for completion towards the end of the month.

He said the rents being achieved ranged from $590 a week for a one-bedroom apartment through to $1050 for apartments with three bedrooms.

“The fact that there is such lusty demand from tenants at those figures is a tribute to Symphony’s quality, its extra-large apartments, features such as timber-look tiles in kitchen and living areas, and the location close to Green Square Station.”

Symphony has been built on a 1.3ha site, bought for $47.5 million in 2014, that was owned by US group Goodrich Control Systems.

It neighbours the $13 billion Green Square urban renewal project and Gunyama Park, which is evolving into a world-class aquatic and sports centre.

The apartments have views over Green Square to the Sydney CBD, which is 5km away, and beyond.

Symphony, in which the buildings are up to 11 levels, has been designed by Allen Jack + Cottier Architects, which won a design competition run by Meriton.

For rental enquiries contact our building management via email [email protected] see full details here.

This is the 2nd time I've had to 'create' this post - I'd just finished my usual final fiddles when it all dropped out. Monumentally unimpressed with NBN. In the few months I've had it I've had more dropouts than in the whole preceding decade.
Major Non-Achievement Award to Coalition Government, just one of many these days. Special Note Award to M Turnbull for setting up this rubberband & safetypin system when he knew it was not the best option.

ROSEBERY

ZETA

Dalmeny & Rosebery avenues

Architect: TURNER + ASSOCIATES

Developer: Meriton

Completed 2016-17


View south along Dalmeny Avenue at new lane which I call 'Zeta Lane' for convenience.
It is part of the plan of making the area more permeable given the former industrial blocks are large scale and need to be broken up & made 'people friendly' if not always 'car friendly'.


View west along 'Zeta Lane' from Dalmeny Av to Rosebery Av.
Note landscaping.


Reverse view: east along 'Zeta Lane' from Rosebery Av to Dalmeny Av.


Corner of Rosebery Av and 'Zeta Ln'.


View south along Rosebery Avenue of the west front of the project.


Rosebery Avenue, the long front, with the north bldg. on the left & the central building on the right.
Another 'lane' separates them.
Note setback 'attic' apartments on top of main structure, something encouraged by council ostensibly to reduce the 'height impact'.


The southern 'lane' between the central building and the south building on Rosebery Av.
Guess it might continue through to Dalmeny Av when the adjoining site is developed.


Reverse view out of south 'lane' to Rosebery Avenue and the u/c The Burcham development.

LANDSCAPING is good, more inspired than council designed landscaping has been of late, though signs of imagination have been sneaking in very recently.


Example of street landscaping on Rosebery Avenue.

*** Not exactly Turner's best design of late.

They are going to have a lot of innovation at the The Burcham

including --- Electric Vehicle Charging - 4 EVbays - some new apartment buildings in Taiwan and China have these - Tesla cars are selling well there.

Home Automation

Biometric Fingerprint Access Security

I presume these will all be Alcubond and polystyrene free.
I know one well known building in the area which I saw constructed whose gardens all have polystyrene underneath. Presumably that is safer than having it in the wall panels.
The polystyrene covered panels all look like concrete so could be around also.
If anyone saw 4 Corners this week they would have been horrified.
I wish someone with expertise would comment on the investigations being undertaken into cladding in the area, given thousands of buildings in Australia are now being investigated.
Queensland and Victoria would appear to be moving faster than other states in following up all these matters.
Has anyone heard anything from COS on this matter?

WATERLOO ~ LACHLAN PRECINCT

THE FINERY

Lachlan St & Gadigal Av.

Construction Update September 12


There it is in the distance in the middle of the photo.
Taken from The Rope Walk Park.
The Tower Residences on the right, Alpha G to the left, No.1 Lachlan on the left with the glories of Crown Square in the background.


Zoom in a bit to show a lot of progress on construction.
The blue edged site is known as 11B Lachlan but is (?) 3 Sam Sing Street, between Archibald Avenue and Tung Hop Street.


Looking east along Lachlan Street with Alpha G on the right and Crown Square's Great Wall on the left.


North front to Lachlan Street, west front to Lachlan Place North, taken @ Sam Sing Street.


North front to Lachlan Street @ Lachlan Place North looking east.


North front to Lachlan Street @ future Gadigal Avenue extension looking west.

Will look a bit like this:




East front to future Gadigal Avenue extension corner of Lachlan Street.


South & east fronts looking across future Dyuralya Square from Amelia Street North.

Will look a bit like this:


Nice park is Dyuralya Square transformed from the dead zone shown in the photo.

WATERLOO ~ LACHLAN PRECINCT

NO.1 LACHLAN ~ EAST TOWER

Lachlan & Sam Sing streets, Thread Lane.

This tower has undergone several design changes over the years along with the whole project, but is now more-or-less structurally complete with fitout in progress.
It more recently promised to be a golden tower, but now it appears we are getting a rather dull black. Whose choice was that?
The blue is plastic sheeting.



View from the south in The Rope Walk Park middle section.


View from the south across The Rope Walk Park from Sam Sing Street.
Shows the gap between the distinctive east tower and the main section of the project.
NB the gold boxes on the side wall.


The corner of Lachlan & Sam Sing streets.
Note the cantilever at the top and the golden boxes down the east side.
[Took a while but I finally figured out what that bloke on level 4 is doing: wearing a cap, head down on the phone.]


Looking down Sam Sing Street @ Lachlan Street.


Looking west along Lachlan Street.
Note 2nd cantilever above Lachlan Street.

Have to admit I find the black rather heavy-handed and deadening, bringing the tower down to earth rather than allowing it to rise into the sky. A bit disappointing.

Really sad to hear it is blue sheeting. I was thinking it may have been like the blue glass tinting in Rise which I adore.
Oh dear, yes, the building is far too dark, forbidding even.
Maybe it needs coloured LEDs around the balconies, a la Waterloo Public Housing. We need a photo of those high rise apartments with all the coloured windows to inspire the owners of no 1.

Don't even mention the hideous multi levels of Aircon units on top of the building.
None of which appeared in any of the design in the DA.They look revolting & even with a fence around it will not improve the finished look. I view it from level 7 Viking

[QUOTE=Brizer;142349433]WATERLOO ~ LACHLAN PRECINCT

EMBLEM ~ SOUTH BUILDING

Gadigal Ave O'Dea Av Amelia St Sth & Hatbox Pl

Architect: PTW ARCHITECTS

The big reveal is finally happening.
Viclocal will like this.

Viclocal likes the use of brick and the curved corners but not the metal grated balconies ( shades of 60s red and beige brick blocks as in Kensington and Kingsford). I definitely do not like the white curved fence on the top- it destroys the envelope of the building aesthetically. It should melt into the background but instead the eye is drawn to a building aberration. I would have loved a pop of colour or perhaps a bit of gold on the balcony to pick up the Garland 17 theme perhaps.

I always like a reveal however.

I'm feeling it is time now for another creative facade somewhere like Garland 17, which seems to be ageing well.
I also love the innovation in Link apartments and the colour palette also.
Time now for another block which adds some colour or sparkle to the area.
This building like Lachlan is just too dark - it needs a pop of character added.
Maybe owners will do it later.
