Going to Darwin in July for a week's holiday. Will take a truck load of photos updating ever growing skyline and post to site.

The building was designed in Sydney by Hassell Architects. It had lots of exterior timber in the original design until someone pointed out that exterior timber exposed to weather rots quickly in the tropics and is high maintenance.

A few phone pics taken on site about 10 days ago:

View looking back towards the escarpment - you can see the Pandanus and Evolution cranes in the background. You can also see the future beach on the right hand side (which was drained of water at this time). Hotels are progressing well (long 2/3 storey building along base of the escarpment):



View looking across to the Convention Centre, which will open in a couple of months time:



Looking over the site from hotel construction:



And looking back towards Wharf One (residential towers) construction site. You can see the full extent of the drained beach in this pic:

Geez the weather looks bad then compared to now.

From yesterday, I am still amazed at the amount of construction. One of the guys from the display centre gave me a introduction into this exciting redevelopment - it does include a 30lv apartment building.

Wont be long before this is filled up.




Concept Plans (sorry about the quality)

Nice pics crawf! You must have met Don in the display centre. There are taller towers planned in a later stage, but at the moment we are focusing on "Wharf Two", which is the grey block buildings in the model - we are currently running a design competition for this stage with some really great submissions.

I've got a couple more pics from on-site last week with my crappy camera phone:



Wharf One progressing well:



The beach (minus the water):



Hard at work on the multi-storey car park:



And hotel building:



The convention centre and wave pool under construction:



Sunset from the display centre:

Shouldn't this thread be altered to Under Construction?? With more cranes than a Zambesi waterhole, I think it well underway!

...and it's going to be under construction until approximately 2020 when we're scheduled to finally build out the site!

That sounds like a very good way to put it i suppose. Looks like they're now hard at work finishing off the reclaimation work.

The first stage will be completed by around April 2009 and that includes most of the main public components (parklands, wave pool, convention centre, sea wall, car park) as well as the two hotels, shops, restaurants and first stage of apartments. The Stage 1 area will form it's own precinct and is confined to a certain section of the overall site, so it won't feel as if there is anything missing there or left undeveloped.

The future stages will be on adjoining land along Kitchener Drive and around the base of Stokes Hill (this is where the taller towers will go) and will predominantly comprise: more apartments, more parklands, more public art, potentially more hotel accommodation (which will most likely include a backpackers hostel or two) a limited amount of retail and commercial space (depending on market demand) and a marina precinct.

When you consider that we have the allowance to build a total of up to 1440 apartments and the first stage only includes 138 apartments, and considering the limited size of the Darwin market (not to mention all the other apartment developments going on in the city), another 12 years of development doesn't seem all that long.

Found a site which has Aerial Photography of Darwin today, heaps and heaps of snaps of suburbs, the buildings etc in the cbd, the waterfront, natural landforms around Darwin. The link below will open up for a stack of photos taken as late as March 2008.

Many different angles, just click on a photo and it will become a bigger one in a new screen
