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...

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.

[U/C] 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.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Oh no to side platforms. This slows the trams even more. The current set up at city south allows a better flow for the trams through the lights. While red the boarding takes place, than on green the tram heads off. The issues with this set up is that a tram travelling north now stops at the lights,...

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

The individual courts are closed off for matches with temporary seating behind the ball barriers (not sure if they will be up for the new tournament, which would be unusual, but there will still be ball barriers around the court. So no, no one will be running to the other end of AO just as they didn...
