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

Four quick snaps from a Thursday evening. The moody sky changed the mood of the building. https://i.imgur.com/WG7pgaZl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/8MUVQQWl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/Ec0oy19l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/MYULuabl.jpg Original sizes: https://i.imgur.com/WG7pgaZ.jpg https://i.imgur.com/8MUVQQW.jp...

A moody one. I was running out of light, but managed to capture this against the dusty early evening sky.

Pretty believable timelines until the end of 2020. Then it gets weird.

I think it's being dragged out not because of other sections, but because of the State Election in 2022.

[APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

I don't see the complaint about food and drink prices. It's no different to pricing at any other captive venue or event, and it should just be assumed there's some kind of premium on them. Comparisons between other stadiums on who is 10 or 20c cheaper/dearer for a pint and some hot chips is dumb, a...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Probably not, given they have basically been gagged from even commenting on it. Some PSAs (Passenger Service Assistants) found out about the privatisation through word of mouth - some even from passengers. The debate over privatisation of Adelaide's light and heavy rail will not so much be about the...

Taken from the train at Islington. Doesn't really do it justice. This is the Kaufland site.

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

I think it's more a measure of culture than of population. Sydney still has hundreds of thousands more people than Melbourne, but Darling Harbour - despite being warmer than Melbourne's Southbank in an Australian winter - does not carry the same level of activity as the latter. Darling Harbour defin...

This project is so bad. Can't be made any more obvious now that it's just a slush fund for SANFL and SACA.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I'm not sure if it's already been said here, but the State Government has already put contracts up to privately operate the trams. There are already a number of applicants, and they are all overseas-based. Trains to come later. The union is furious.

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

I feel that one reason the Southbank Promenade in Melbourne is so successful is that there are destinations at either end (Federation Square at one, and South Wharf and beyond at the other). I'll be honest, it's a glorified path that leads to Crown Casino. But I like it. It has atmosphere, vibe and ...

Re: News & Developments: Prospect

I just hope that the railway station gets an upgrade too ready for the new development but I won't be holding my breath Sadly, it just won't happen, unless station upgrades are part of the $650-odd million price tag for Gawler electrification. The railway siding between the site and Islington stati...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

These car-park plans just go to show how little the public has had access to the overall plans for this redevelopment. Based on the renders released a few years ago, I was of the impression that the plaza would level up with KWS, but it now looks as though you will have to climb a flight of stairs ...
