Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

I noticed many shops seemed closed in Rundle Mall around 630pm tonight despite it being Friday late night shopping e.g. Apple Store closed, Reject Shop, Koko Black, most shops in Regent Arcade and Adelaide Arcade, plus several of the smaller shops nearer Pulteney St. Is this the new normal post-Cov...

it is literally the reason why the city centre is finding it so hard to go more vertical.

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

G'day all, I was wondering if anyone knows what happened to the 60 story skyscraper proposal back in 2017? The Advertiser wrote this headline in 2017: 'JWDT website proposes 60-storey tower in Adelaide CBD' I emailed council and they said it didn't get past initial talks with the Government etc. Bu...

**cough* * I've got that on an older laptop, it still works, but I got it when it was listed on Mozillas addons. It's been removed for download/install.

I ride past every day. Nothing has been tidied up, and the water features at both ends of the bridge remain off (as they have for a year and a half now).

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Is it a bit weird that there is a surface level greenway on the eastern side of the tramline past Tonsley, but when the elevated section starts, that greenway just abruptly ends and then there's a switchback ramp leading up to an elevated path on the western side — with the two not joining up. Why w...

This will still be better than Dwell. As you said SRW if the fins are metallic it will be a winner. I suspect they won't be precast concrete panels like those prevalent in the Brutalist period.

Cheers
If it was brutalist, it would be in situ, not precast ;)

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

Yes, there's nearly double the number of trees, and they're a more appropriate species than the plane and ficus they replaced. What I think we should be doing in future, in addition to more trees, is having more soft landscaping -- that is, greenery in the understory, planters, swales -- to minimis...

Don't mind the clickbait headline, but new article up at InDaily: 'Call to repave Rundle Mall (again) to combat climate change' The idea of paving with cooler materials is just one suggestion from a report on climate risks. The notion that we would repave Rundle Mall again now (and that fresh disru...
