Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

It has nothing to do with smaller population. There is and always has been a major shortage of large lettable tenancies in the Rundle Mall precinct, which means that mini-majors are forced to provide smaller format stores if they have any desire of opening in the CBD. When Zara opened at Burnside i...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

https://www.commercialrealestate.com.au/property/145-grote-st-adelaide-sa-5000-2014938293 The site at 145 Grote St. is under contract. You'd imagine due to its prominent location to see something built there in the medium term. From what I understand it is very unlikely that any significant develop...

[APP] Re: 51 Pirie Street | 114m | 28 Levels | Hotel

Looks like GHD have recycled their cladding design for Barwon Water HQ in Geelong. Boring shape aside, this could end up being quite the looker. https://www.realestate.com.au/blog/images/1600x1600-fit,progressive/2018/11/02170015/capi_89e584260084a1e5924b016de85b1537_d2c3f99e5bb238d026eba37e7c68cea1...

[APP] Re: 73-85 Pirie Street | 89m | 22 Levels | Office

That’s all well and good, but enforcing certain setbacks and plot ratio’s etc will still make a development more expensive for the same amount of lettable area. Still discourages development all the same. In saying that, yes of course I would like to see more interesting designs than boring boxes. ...

[U/C] Re: WEST (Football Park) | Developments & News

Not sure if it has been mentioned but I have it on very good authority that Kaufland will be taking space as part of this development. Given that there's already a Coles and Woolworths in Westfield next door, and a new Foodland will definitely be built on part of the stadium site, as well as a libr...

[APP] Re: 73-85 Pirie Street | 89m | 22 Levels | Office

We say this a lot but really this is a prime spot for a much taller building as the latest render in context shows. I sometimes wonder if we were more strict on having setbacks whether that would influence taller /more interesting designs. Planning Commission: "You have to build a taller building o...

Another conservative build. We say this a lot but really this is a prime spot for a much taller building as the latest render in context shows.

[COM] Re: GPO Exchange | 85m | 22 Levels | Office

As I hoped, this one is reminding me more and more of 101 Collins Street, Melbourne. You're right about that. lol how? These two buildings look nothing alike, and 101 Collins is 170m taller. Are you colour blind? The facade treatment and window tint looks exactly like 101 Collins. Nothing to do wit...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I agree that it should not run through the terraces. Our CBD is spread and catchment would be far better using 'inner roads' which cross the squares.
