*Dies. So classy!

Imagine if we had this AND the sails build. *Sighs. I doubt it will get built. We now have demand BUT the economy is crap. We can NEVER WIN!

WOW !!!
So that's on the corner of Pirie and Gawler Place right ?
Love how they've built the facade around the beautiful building at the bottom.

Even better !
Don't want to whinge.... but if the tower did get built, when the skyline is viewed from Montifiore Hill ( the most commonly viewed angle of the CBD ) the Telstra tower and / or Grenfell Centre would cover most of it wouldn't it ?

chatted to architect today.
this one will be submitted to council soon. Its 24storeys and 115m.
he did say the tower will look slightly less dramatic then render shows.
hopefully demand will take this to construction stage and not on back burner.

Thanks for the info Culwulla.

It sounds like you have a good contact there.

Please keep us updated.

Did it sound like there was any interest to lease this space eg demand driven or just a straight out proposal they hope to get some interest in?

Will be interesting to see just how dumbed down this one becomes.

I am about to die, this is a great proposal but I am so scared the economic crisis will affect this one here. I don't know who to turn to, Jesus? Mohammed? Please let this be built!

This is my first post in the S.A section, but this tower is a stunner.

I love how it incorporates the old building.

The facade is stunning. Hope all goes well .

Definitely one of my favorites.

Ok, everyone is probably getting a little too excited about this, it happens every time there is a decent proposal in Adelaide.
Let's be more realistic:
Firstly it will probably never be built.
If it does it will probably be 100m max.
It wont look nearly as good as the picture in this thread.

I would like to be completely wrong though.

I really think it's time that Adelaide pushed to have its ridiculous height limits scrapped.
For the life of me, I can't understand how (with modern technology) flight paths dictate the growth of a capital city?

I can understand it. When a city council wants to 'preserve' Adelaide's country town vibe, yeah I can certainly understand it. Couple that with a lot of people hating change... you can get a good picture.

That said there are many others who would readily embrace it.

Well to be honest if a 130m+ tower was proposed in Adelaide, the majority of people would support it or not even care.

Though even with support, there is no demand for a large skyscraper at the moment. However next decade could be a different story
