[APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

Adelaide Oval Hotel :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash: Yep. I really hope it isn't going to turn into as much of a disaster as the renders predict, this is a slipshod, half-arsed development which looks like ruining the Eastern aspect of the oval. The dogged persistence of showing non-opaque glass th...

Can't have a State Minister making a statement that says ' the best ' - see the word 'the' - he didn't make a subjective statement - he made an actual statement, one that is incorrect. He needed to stick to the positives of having a unique situation with a hotel attached to a major sporting stadium...

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

Doesn't this plan kind of go against the Libs rhetoric from when they were in the opposition? Liberals don't seem to have much of a plan for anything, their main successes have been executing the former Labor governments plans. This is not necessarily a bad thing, and in that respect I am far more ...

I spoke too soon - great to see that Adelaide will spearhead the new-format Virgin lounges!

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Both lounges should be located on a separate third level, this should have been the case when they build the new terminal... They're currently extending the terminal with part of the new building going towards a foodcourt/retail area when they could have built a new Qantas Club upstairs and the are...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Really difficult to understand how they get those rankings, I fly a lot through a number of airports on this list, while Adelaide may not have the same level of amenities (both lounges could do with an update - virgin could use more space, Qantas less space but better appointed) it is fantastic at g...

I cannot even begin to understand the mentality of the people who talk-down about Adelaide oval as being "not complete" and "not the same standard as Optus" etc. Either you have not traveled the world and its sporting stadia extensively or you are infected by the SA "everything is shit" mentality.

Re: News & Discussion : New Restaurants, Bars & Night Clubs

Fantastic news! Restaurants have proven successful in similar buildings around the world and it's nice to have another pre show or pre game option. Most importantly, it's great to see some of the grandeur of the station concourse restored. Personally, I'd love to see the Marble Hall/waiting lobby r...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

The interstate-based developer doesn't give two sh*ts about the Port or SA, they just want to make a profit and without a strong guiding hand by a public-interest authority sh*t is all we will get. Thankfully the woolsheds are still banked for when we get are act together and develop a proper maste...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

This: I think it's great it's being torn down. Equals this: The whole area is a wasted opportunity and will be nothing but boring suburbia. Bring on the residential development, but retaining the heritage features and vibe of the Port are the only way to avoid another soulless suburb of ticky tacky...

Like I said, the majority of people are content with being average. They are content with Adelaide being a big country town, while other cities leave us in their dust. Unfortunately everyone from business leaders to political leaders are content to sit back protecting their existing status quo. The...

Shame.

I hope that whatever replaces it mimics the sawtooth roof.
From the latest plans looks like it will be high-density, low-quality modern box future-ghetto residential apartment blocks with no redeeming architectural merit. Fantastic.

Haven't been to Perth stadium, but I have been to Marvel, and it's trash compared to AO. I've sat in every stand at AO since the rebuild for either football, soccer, or cricket, and never had an issue seeing all of the playing area from my seat, and I'm talking after they rejigged the cricket membe...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

Yeah, metal and asbestos. Can fix asbestos. Newport quays and now "dock one" both look like generic suburban density projects which will age terribly and our children will curse us for destroying the Port Heritage and building such crap, much as we lament the generations before us for ripping down ...
