Before and after renders.





Is it just an illusion or has the student building gained a couple of floors?

If you reduce you screen zoom out the first 2 pictures are side by side for better comparison.

This has slightly increased to now 135m. Thanks to Ben @ SA for the heads up

How do you know that crawf? I interpreted his post as meaning he'd be happy even if it was just an increase of one metre in height. It could be a greater (or smaller) increase than that. But you (and Ben if it was his intention) could be right.

It would be great to see this become say 140m tall, so that it's noticeably larger than Westpac (also I think Westpac once had a 3m stick on top for a total height of 134.6m, so an increase above this height means it's the tallest structure ever in our CBD). As good as this and particularly Realm look, they are barely bigger than Westpac - in fact, Realm is only larger than Westpac by 10cm!

I kind of wish Realm would respond in kind and add a couple more floors to their design, as I would prefer that building become our new tallest over this. But hey, they both still need to leave the ground first, so I can't be too picky.

Lol kinda jumped the gun on this, only skimmed past Ben's comment. This is a positive sign for Frome Central and the city itself with increased height and apartments. The display centre is also well underway which will no doubt attract even more interest.

I'd rather Realm add more floors aswell, 150m mark. Though as we are aware, there is something much greater in the pipeline for Adelaide. In the meantime, Adelaide's skyline is about to undergo a much needed facelift with six buildings over the 100m mark aswell as a cluster of new mid rise buildings. Quite exciting times ahead.

Seems likely to me the revised DA is for what is reflected in the newer renders. The 1m scenario is plausible.

I thought we discussed this on S-A, and the recent render changes were reflected in this amendment that Ben discovered in mid-March:

Quote:
Type: Schedule 10
Application Number: S10/22/2016/A
Lodgement DateL 16/03/2017
Location: 11 Frome Street, ADELAIDE SA 5000
Description: Vary previous authorisaton demolition of existing structures and construction of a multi-level mixed use development comprising retail and commercial uses, hotel, student accommodation, residential and serviced apartments, including car parking, landscaping and site works - VARIATION - alterations to floor layouts, landscaping, communal space and elevation alterations.
Though a height increase in the latest amendment would also imply an alteration to the building's elevation drawings, which isn't mentioned in this most recent amendment, so you could well be right.
