Re: SA Economy

Do you really want your schools, shops, hospitals, favourite weekend spots flooded with people? Like being stuck in traffic forever or not getting a seat on the train? Like being undercut by somebody cheaper? Love being in debt? Happy to see your kids renting, complaining about how everything is to...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

What's wrong with the route? The problem sees to be that no political party wants to be responsible for the construction phase/ They all want it finished, but fear the voter backlash of actually building it. This is one of the consequences of deliberately setting up a "fair" electoral system. Drast...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

The absurdity of the planning on the route is becoming more evident every day. You fly through Darlington only to hit a bottle neck the moment it finishes. In one direction the Daws rd/Goodwood road intersection is going to help, a bit, until the bottle neck turns into goodwood/cross roads. But all...

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

There's been lights on in some apartments on various nights recently, and it really adds a sense of 'life' to the Mall after-hours.

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

While they're figuring out what to do with the final sections of South Road, they should be increasing capacity now on other north-south routes which will take the brunt of traffic diversion during the many years of construction. Why there's still a level crossing on Marion Road I can't understand. ...

[PRO] Re: 10 Anzac Highway | Kaufland Supermarket

Department of Defence might have something to say about high rise developments so close to an active base. But it would be nice to see a high density development between the southern edge of the base, Anzac Hwy, the train line, and Leader street. The western side of Anzac Hwy between Richmond road ...

They're still trying to offload these appartments. The new agents have put up some drone footage to push the sales. You can see the top two floors (the penthouse) still incomplete: L80YtbjRTYg I'm assuming the helipad at the end is superimposed and a complete fancy. You can also spy some of the rece...

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

I thought they were meant to be continuing the paving language from the rest of North Terrace? It looks like they chosen a new paver type (the charcoal) and are now using the Adelaide Granite only as accent. It's hard to tell so I won't prejudge, but I have to say it really bothers me that this city...

It was changing colours tonight. At a bit too frenetic a rate (à la riverbank) for me.

[PRO] Re: 10 Anzac Highway | Kaufland Supermarket

Does anyone know if the neighbouring site ever had any interested buyers [which Kaufland owned and had for sale]. I believe this was for apartments/medium density residential and it would be a good indication of the residential/developer interest or lack thereof. The townhouse and apartment develop...

[PRO] Re: 10 Anzac Highway | Kaufland Supermarket

Well, I hope that means this site can now live up to its potential for higher density residential. I can still see an Aldi or Woolies trying to secure space here, but I think council should be strict about the proportion of the site meant for residential. There's an opportunity now to get a much bet...
