Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

I understand/accept your points JAKJ. I am not aligned either to or against the AFC proposal. I am neutral. However what I am thinking about is how to get a new Aquatic centre built for the benefit of all the public without the burden being on the ACC and it’s ratepayers. So what if the operation o...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Cost wise, $10-40m to bulldoze, $300-400m to rebuild. This is fanciful. By way of comparison, the old RAH is costing $180-200 million to demolish. Admittedly, that includes remediation, but then again: the Myer Centre takes up an entire city block. Not only is there zero logic to this suggestion, i...

Re: Adelaide Oval news and events

A couple of months back I raised the concern about Adelaide Oval slipping down the pecking order and was the for the most part howled down on this forum. No-one denied that other cities were getting events, the debate was entirely over whether Adelaide simply having more seats would have made a lic...

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...

[U/C] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

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 ...

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.
