[APP] Re: 75-79 King William Street | 132m | 39 Levels | Mixed

Time the RTCC and PANS-OPS gets reviewed and amended. Remember the old Hong Kong Airport. Our Airport is no where near the CBD. Also the runway lines up with North Adelaide NOT Adelaide CBD. Hardly a skyscraper in North Adelaide. If the CBD height was a problem at Adelaide Airport - they should have...

Was flying over the CBD last night and the impact these are having on our skyline are great (disappointed i didnt have a window spot to take a photo to share) - This and the others like Realm, Luminesque and the Festival Plaza Office Tower will have a huge impact on they skyline - cant wait to see t...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

It's amazing that this government wants TOD's but remove the no stamp duty incentives. We need places such as CBD, Bowden, Port, Glenelg to boom and go up. Yes they loose a bit of stamp duty but they add to jobs

[U/C] Re: 11 Frome Street | 135m | 37 Levels | Crowne Plaza / Adelaidean | New tallest

Looking at the photos from distance and counting how many floors are likely still to occur, to me is seems that the Realm will appear taller than Adelaidean on the skyline. Will be interesting how either of them will appear against the Westpac building. Have a feeling that the Westpac building will ...

Re: Flinders University - Developments & News

Basically they were short sighted when they plonked the private hospital/margaret tobin centre/carpark where they did. Had that not been there they could have easily curved the train line up flinders university drive and then either cut across pine plantation and ring road or more likely keep going ...

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

An integrated over the rail yard stadium will not work too many sports and the layout would not cater well for all sports. An integrated roofed stadium for tennis, basketball, netball and concerts is a must and makes absolute sense. A boutique soccer/rugby stadium would be a nice to have Locations a...

[APP] Re: 73-85 Pirie Street | 89m | 22 Levels | Office

A slightly smaller floor size more angles and curves and making building 120m+ would be a start. The state development commmision/panel should tell developers that square boxes will not be approved without exceptional design will get some off these cookie cutter architects and developers thinking ou...

[PRO] Re: Westfield Marion (Extension)

Paid Parking??? Chadstone in Melbourne does not have paid parking and they are much much more upper class than Marion. So why should SA shoppers be slugged.

If they have paid parking in Marion i will just boycott that centre. I may as well be going to the CBD then.

This building, the king william proposal, adelaidean and realm which change be such a change on the skyline. Hope that they are just a precursor for what is to follows and that others such as twin st, park hotel on pirie, the festival centre tower follow but then much more. Hopefully within the next...

[U/C] Re: GPO Exchange | 85m | 22 Levels | Office

It may get batter once we see the entire wall in its entirety but yes its very bland and certainly for such a prominent spot around the square should not have been allowed. Disappointing for offices of a large multinational

Even the student tower planned for North Terrace has more appeal.
