telstra seems to have a reputation of building quite average looking buildings. hopefully this one will be an exception. great news all the same

18 levels of mixed use (predominately office) would equate to 65-75m tall. That sounds very reasonable, given its location in Franklin Street, which is out in the city's West End, near the CityWest development.

Sounds interesting, good work Will! Hopefully it will be decent, Telstra ain't that great for producing well designed towers although there are a couple around, don't mind the small one on Currie Street. I am amazed at how many towers are going up/approved or proposed in Adelaide now. Starting to out-do a few other Aus cities for a change on a per capita basis. After almost 15 years of stagnation it is strange to see so much construction. When walking around the city I have heard a couple of people say "there is a lot of construction going on at the moment". Us Adelaidians really aren't used to it Refurbs and construction down a fair few city streets, makes a nice change.

Office construction is going on at a nice pace, just enough to satisfy demand but not too much to cause an over supply. Feel a bit sorry for Perth, their office vacany rates are around 3%! You would think that would create a development boom but not quiet yet, hopefully soon. With not enough office construction occurring yet in Perth it is starting to cause problems with sky high rents and tenants looking to the suburbs instead. We are lucky that hasn't happened here in Adelaide but we had far less A and B grade space to start with and are finally catching up in that area.

Proposed: Twin Towers Franklin St

The City Messenger states that an application to demolish
the derelict building at Telstra's former telefphone exchange building
on Franklin St and build two 17 storey office towers plus a seven storey
car park at the back of the site for 500 cars.

Theres a good render of the proposed buildings on pg 14 which shows
you how it will look and where it is etc.

Adelaide's ugliest building is getting demolished that is the best news I have heard in awhile. I'm so happy it will be gone

Telstar Exchange isn't going, it's the mid rise white building on franklin st that these towers are on in the render. And that builing was recently sold.

Are you getting mixed up with the building that's visible in the render at the back of the new proposal mate?

The building that's getting the arse is actually quite a decent old building, but it's been allowed to run down beyond saving.

I think the graffiti on the front door of that old white building that is getting replaced says everything about the state it's in... "squat me". A nice addition to the city I must say
