Re: #Vision: New Inner-City Stadium

A new stadium, inner city location, should be built with the World Cup in mind, not AFL. If it has to be another oval shaped pitch, then I hope they design it so seating can be added in to make the pitch rectangular. Of course it would then need to have a roof as all seating for WC stadiums need to...

Re: #Vision: New Inner-City Stadium

I'm yet to be convinced that the average patrons of AFL matches will flow into the CBD an make use of the clubs, pubs and restaurants. More likely they'd crown in and crowd out again at the end of their event. But perhaps AFL wouldn't be the only use of an inner city stadium? Your joking right? Cle...

Re: Rising interest rates … what will this do to the economy?

The other thing to look at, is land tax ... which is set to go through the roof for many people. 2009 is looking very scary for all of australia.

Seeing as they are developing this new state swim, do people think that they will get rid of the state swim that is on the parade (norwood) ???

Re: Rising interest rates … what will this do to the economy?

The other thing i want to know, is where everyone is getting the money from??? It seems that when real estate was cheap (around 10 yrs ago), no one was buying, and now that its been sky rocketing (with many people possibly paying even too much) it seems that people have plenty of money to spend.

Re: Rising interest rates … what will this do to the economy?

As someone who likes to think they're 'in the know' on such topics, most analysts aren't pointing at an Australian recession, the fundamentals are far too strong. We're a lot more disconnected from the US than we used to be, economically. We have a lot further to maneuver in terms of fiscal and mon...

Re: Rising interest rates … what will this do to the economy?

If it's anything like the 1990's recession we'll see a few buildings completed and then everything will slow for a few years. But I doubt that it will play out like that this time. There's a lot of interesting forces manifesting in the World at the moment unlike anything we've seen in decades. The ...

Rising interest rates … what will this do to the economy?

With interest rates set to rise again in march, and then possibly again mid year, what do people think this will do to Adelaide, in terms of development. In addition, it has been started that a recession in 2009 is on the cards. This would be catastrophic for Australia. Do you think this will put a ...

Re: #Vision: New Inner-City Stadium

I see your point Cruise, but seriously .. not many of us have 43,000/30,000 'friends' that come to our house on a weekly basis and spent $20 just to get in the front (or side) door. Nor do they pay me $5 each time I give them a glass of coke or a hot dog. Plus I rarely have interestate and internat...

Re: Are residents outside of Adelaide CBD scared of heights?

I find this to be a massive problem.

It it what holds our city back

I think that the area which is affected worse by this, is Norwood

Re: #Vision: New Inner-City Stadium

This would be great

We would be able to hold international games, and would really be a step forward in the right direction
