Thank you for your thought Alex. On another matter: Whose idea was it to put the painted (?) red bark / mulch in the landscaped areas of Todd Street / Mall? Was that in the design brief? Wasn’t the river sand good enough? The mural on the ANZ car park wall is a bit trippy as well.

Distinction of design reflecting a sense of place
Splendid building indeed – a “rose” among “thorns”. In my view, there is no disputing it looks good / is designed well and is setting a benchmark that hopefully other CBD land owners will follow … but, nearly one year (?) after it was built, why is this landmark building still empty? Is there a tenant paying rent on the empty building? Meanwhile, the architecture / ambience of Helm House, Anangu House, Centrelink and the Westpoint buildings is attractive enough to be fully tenanted?

My recollection is that the shade structure over the basketball courts was built around the time of the economic stimulus package 2010/2011 (Building the Education Revolution).
All around Australian there is a legacy of these sorts of projects being rushed through. Keeps the builders in business.
