Re: News & Discussion: Low/Mid-Rise CBD Development

[U/C] Re: New Calvary Hospital | 60m | 12 lvls | Cnr Angas/Pulteney

It'd work for a school or university campus, but can't see any takers on the horizon. CBC's usefully adjacent, but doubt they'd need/want all the space. I'd welcome a university or mid-rise apartments for the flow-through business affects. Hutt Street is in dire need of a lift in activity, with more...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

It really feels like this is getting no further along. It's just announcements and re-annoucements of funding and planning. I guess I'm naïve about DPTI's processes, but with all the studies so far, I'm surprised we need yet another to decide an option. Do they need to update assumptions, go further...

It's an adequate and inoffensive design that would have been more than fine if it wasn't situated amongst the similarly sized rectangular boxes of City Central. In aggregate, the view from Victoria Square is pretty lacklustre.

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

To me it seems as they (Liberal State Govt) just make it up as they go. I guess it has helped they won & have been awarded Fed Govt $$ for the National space agency etc Btw, I still don’t understand why the JV with C&G as chosen by the previous Labour Govt was then re-negged upon? I am pretty sure ...

[U/C] Re: 27-31 Angas Street | 103m | 30 Levels | Kodo Apartments

I've come to like the visible blinds shuttered to varying degrees in buildings like the City Central precinct. It makes the building (and city) look 'lived in' during the daytime, rather than as lifeless sentinels.

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

I think with consultation they were determined to avoid affecting too many significant trees. Beyond that, the wetland forms part of a larger detention basin in Victoria Park for ephemeral water (over)flow from Brownhill-Keswick creeks. I imagine the wetland is about the extent of sustainable holdin...

Don't think this one's been posted about yet? 5-storey apartment block at 82-88 Rundle Street, Kent Town. On public notification: https://www.saplanningcommission.sa.gov ... 004-19.pdf

I guess they're expecting the introduction of paid parking to balance things out?

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

Is it just me or does all this demolition even before a solid plan for the site has been finalised seem a bit hasty and short-sighted? There's a lot of contamination at the site so demolition and remediation is a lengthy process. We ought to be ready to go with something once that's all finished. B...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

The paint on the previously known AON building is peeling off only a few months. this will look terrible soon if not changed but looks like the whole building will need to be painted again. The whole building has this peeling off look. Well that's a waste of time and money, especially when the blue...

Sorry slightly off topic but please tell me they haven't already removed one of the new trees in Bank Street and not replaced it - I'm referring to the apparent tree stump in the bottom third of ChillyPilly's last picture. To confirm your worst fears, that's been gone for a while. Most probably col...

Amazing how quick things can be built when its on Commonwealth land :applause: :applause: New terminal is gonna be good. Hopefully I can try it out when its complete. I'd suggest it's less to do with it being Commonwealth land and more to do with a good business case and the ripe finances of the ai...

The east, north and south façades have all benefited and been improved by continuity of materials, particularly the incorporation of copper elements. The main western façade is still meh. That said, they've mostly met the criteria, and the government architect's remaining concerns are minor, so I ex...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

The Adelaide parklands would have to be the most over rated, under utilised patch of dirt of any capital city in Australia. They are neither native bush, or manacured park. Contrary to popular belief, the only thing poeple from other states know about the parklands is when they drive through them, ...
