#Construction: Eastwest Apartments

It will now be called East West Apartments. They also seem to have changed the design for the roof section. Somehow I think this will actually be the same height or taller than 223 North Terrace judging by the rendering. Apartments are being released onto the market soon.

Here is the official website: http://www.eastwestapartments.com.au/

And the rendering:

One thing I like about the design was that they angled the balconies so that every apartment has an equal view out onto the terrace, even after 223NT goes up. Does anybody know what the wall we can't see is going to look like? Just a blank wall?

Also surprised to see it's actually underwritten by UniSA. More student housing maybe? Or are they just trying to bum some bucks off the housing markets to build their own student accomodation somewhere else in the future?

With Horizon out the way, this is definitely my favourite development in Adelaide/Glenelg right now!

To me, the design looks the same as what was in the City Messenger a few months ago (here), but the colour rendering makes it look a lot nicer.

What are they going to put on the eastern wall? I hope they don't leave it blank, unless they plan to put another high-rise there.

That's a great rendering.

I dont know what the art gallery guy was talking about, but that's a very nice looking building!

But the height remains at 38m.

It's a good looking building. Lucky that 223NT is going up though, otherwise it would stick out like a sore thumb.

I think the old 227NT thread got its ass deleted, so let's continue this thread as the construction thread.

Construction doesn't look too close A few weeks ago I saw workmen in there and bags of cement/plaster, and I assumed this was because they were sealling off the building for demolition. However, it now looks as if the ground floor is being converted into a display room, which you'd think they'd keep around for a few months yet to get enough sales to justify beginning construction.

Yeah the door handles are in the shape of that EW 3D logo - definitely a display centre.

There's a model in the (now open) display centre. From the quick look I had, it seems the eastern wall will be blank.

I have heard rumors of such, but, I won't say anything for fear of backlash by fellow forumers!

That's a good idea, because the 2 buildings next to 227 North Terrace are definately past their use by date...

The model on display makes the building appear taller than what it really will be like.
