[APP] Re: SAHMRI Stage 2

Looks like the building will officially be called the Australian Bragg Centre ABC (for Proton therapy and research) sorry for the thread bump, here's some pics of signage :) I don't know about you guys but since there's already an ABC building, that calling this the SAHMRI 2 will be the more common...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

For those wondering about the new activated crossings on the Outer Harbour line (and I presume it also applies to the two Gawler line ones at North Adelaide Station and half way along War Memorial Dr near Torrens Junction) — they've now blown out to October, over a year and a half behind schedule. L...

[APP] Re: 64 Currie Street | 92m | 25 Levels | QT Hotel/Office

A little worried about the Brightonlite precast concrete façade given the poor track record of recent developments, so fingers crossed it doesn't end up another blight It shouldn't. They're specifically using a tinted concrete, so they're obviously intending for it for it to be a good finish raw. I...

Re: News & Developments: Bowden TOD

I think The Standard development is dead. Noticed some of the hoarding taken down yesterday, which put my hopes up that they were getting ready for construction, but it seems to have been scrubbed from the internet — the website now redirects to Arcadian Property with no mention of it anymore on th...

Re: News & Developments: Bowden TOD

Screen Shot 2019-01-23 at 12.08.39 pm.png Do developers own the corner block on Port Road/Park Terrace? Hopefully some 'iconic' buildings go up there. No, RenewalSA only have up to the train line. The Port Rd / Park Tce corner is owned by Raptis Investments. It has been rezoned, and I believe that ...

Yeah, of all the things to do with that car park, the external concrete is not the thing that needs fixing. The Parc Arcade on the other hand...

The announcement was for the start of construction of the roof.

[U/C] Re: Oaklands Crossing | $174m

Unfortunately there are a couple of taggers (I won't give them any exposure by mentioning their tags) at the moment who are making it their mission to tag every single bit of public infrastructure (down to something as small as a planter box) from Bowden all the way through to the riverbank precinc...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

I went there on the weekend but was very underwhelmed. The cafe only had a few muffins while Bam Bam which I really wanted to try charged between $19 and $27 for some fried chicken so that was a big no. I think its poorly designed personally. We ended up going to Jamaica Blue in Myer centre which i...

Nice! One within striking distance for weekday lunch. Do hope they’re not expanding to quickly though - it hasn’t been long since the UniSA store and certainly the Queen St store opened.

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

I'm not 100% sure but it looks like that heritage facade has been butchered at some point in the past - the big rectangular windows don't look like they're the right scale compared to the other features. If that is the case then that might have some sway on the decision of whether it's worth keepin...

FWIW, from this pic, it looks like the North Terrace line is getting some good loads. 20190412_143609~2.jpg I've been on the tram this week rather than riding, and have noticed the Botanic tram is much more popular compared to the first few weeks, still pretty packed standing past the railway stati...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

If only we had stuck to the earlier O-Bahn tunnel plan, removing Rundle Rd in favour of a new road connecting with Grenfell St — we could have had a much grander combined Rundle/Rymill Park.
