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

That's an old render, notice the corner balconies in the centre section? They were removed in a design revision, which presumably was when the facade change occurred. Aside the deletion of balconies and the proposed (but not approved) change to pickup/dropoff, there were minimal changes. The roofli...

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

Why would there be a "for lease" sign if the building is going to be knocked down eventually? Obviously before it is knocked down there’s still money to be made. Remember, this hasn’t confirmed an operator yet, let alone gone to tender. Any new tenancy could be moved on in the time it takes to actu...

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

On balance, if they lay the paving on a concrete base and look after the new trees and greenery in the next few years this should look better than it did. It baffles me though that the State Govt./ Renewal SA can act so quickly whilst we're still waiting for Adelaide City Council to start its bits ...

I don't know what this pattern is meant to be, but I hope it's illuminated at night to bring some brightness to this street.

Yep. They don't even need to spend that much money on it. It baffles me that they have spent 8 million dollars or so on Gawler Place (note: not opposed to the upgrade but reckon they could have economised a bit) when Currie and Grenfell Streets could be brought up to standard with 3 or 4 million do...

[U/C] Re: Renaissance Arcade | 132m | 40 Levels | Realm Apartments

It's a shame it's taken a Melbourne firm to lift the design game for residential high rise. If they can do it, why do our local architects keep serving up mediocrity? Most of the recent developments which are of disappointing quality are student accommodation, which by and large is made to be as ch...

As someone looking to buy a CBD apartment, this would have to be the least enticing. You'll be built out on every aspect.

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

Apparently the City of Adelaide clipper have agreed to relocate to Dock 2, which the cements the location as a potential seaport village. The stickler was access being provided from the south, which I assume means the pedestrian bridge across from Dock 2 envisaged in the master plan. A4E49388-C73E-4...

[APP] Re: 203 North Terrace | 109m | 33 levels | Student Accom

Have a read through the DA and see the mandated redesigns. Originally this tower was purely glass, but it was deemed “unsuitable” for North Terrace... The current design is a directed evolution. The board WANTS this design... I did, and what I read indicated it was a metal mesh not glass. Besides t...

And the corner sections of the "square" REALLY need to be looked at as well. Everyone focuses on the diamond section, but forgets there's four corner sections that haven't been touched yet. That's what the 'squaring the square' stage of the masterplan was meant to do -- move the roadways to the per...
