[VIS] Re: Central Market

They would want to be very very careful with what they do. The central market charm might be lost for good if they try and make it what it isn't. You're completely right about how vital it is to maintain the character of the actual markets themselves. However, there is absolutely nothing whatsoever...

[COM] Re: The Bend Motorsport Park

I can’t believe “neighbours” complain about the noise! It’s 100km from suburbia - how far out do they have to go? Plus it’s only 1 “big” event (20k-40k people!) a year and they complain, I have heard it all. Well they're going to be building a drag strip, which would raise the noise levels somewhat.

[U/C] Re: SkyCity Adelaide Casino Expansion | 55m | 12 Levels | Hotel

Love the curves, the finished product will look great and bring a whole new hub of activity and interest but can't help but feel it's a lost opportunity in terms of an iconic tower in this space, imagine that building but all the way up to the 120m - 140m mark, to then be complimented by the Walker...

Re: Adelaide Oval Redevelopment

But why, though? Rugby league is dead in this state & has been ever since the NRL pulled the Rams out.

do you have a point?
"Sent from my iPhone" is a pretty good point, tbh. You don't see people lining up for hours to buy some Alcatel piece of garbage.

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Everybody complaining about this, like this is something new we should be "embarrassed" by or whatever, should at least look up Levitz Funiture.

I hope they're not complaining about the affordable housing components being eliminated, because I thought it was them whining about "ghettos" that got it canned in the first place.

Yeah, Gourmet Glaze aren't exactly "battlers", but at least more of the money you pay stays in SA.
