Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

I know this area very well. I used to live in New Port. My parent's house was in Close Street Birkenhead so I've walked across zones 1 and 2 thousands of times.. I live in South Korea where high rise is commonplace. Zone 1 is right next to the train station. Could have been an opportunity to provide...

Re: Port Adelaide | Developments & News

Those renders of the Port Developments (despite being flashed up) look pretty low density and bland IMO.

Re: Port Adelaide | Developments & News

I think the govt has kept back 12 hectares/30% of the development to still be decided upon. However this could still come to little.... I guess while I understand your points about high rise, I am unsure if there is enough buyer demand to support it. Many owners still are deep underwater from price...

Re: Port Adelaide | Developments & News

For what it's worth ... I'll give my opinion on this. I know this area exceptionally well. My parent's house was in Close Street Birkenhead, and I've lived around this area many years including 2 years recently in New Port. Sometime ago I relocated to Canberra and have been living in South Korea sin...

[COM] Re: APP: East Park, Kent Town | 36m | 11 Levels

I think two lifts is enough for 11 storeys. My previous apartment in S Korea had 2 lifts for a 20 storey segment of a complex which was double the width of this, and two lifts were fine. I lived in Kent Town for many years when I was younger and I'm amazed at the lack of development there. When I ca...

Re: #U/R: Newport Quays | [ Port Adelaide Waterfront ]

Having looked at this over-all project over time in detail, I'm not sure that it isn't going to turn out to be a wasted opportunity for the Port Adelaide area. One thing is the fact that it should have been underway much earlier than the date it actually began to proceed. The time it took for the co...
