[U/C] Re: 269 North Terrace | 118m | 36 Levels | Student accommodation

This one is turning out far better than I think anyone expected. It actually compliments Adelaidean nicely also. Perhaps better than what you expected. Not anyone. Let's reiterate. This is definitely the best student accommodation tower so far, at least externally. Internally we'll have to wait and...

Re: Moving the airport to a less populated area

[...] Why they have an airport that has 10x the traffic compared to Adelaide is also interesting, is it geography? Has the state of Texas targeted this? Combine the population of Dallas and Fort Worth and their greater metro area and you are looking at over 7.5 million people (US Census Bureau 2019...

Re: Moving the airport to a less populated area

Must be a slow news week, this topic seems to be discussed at least every 6 months. Yes - but only on weeks that nobody complains the railway stations are too far from the city centre. Presumably we have people who like long train rides before and after their plane rides instead of short taxi rides...

Believe the last concrete floor pour was done today. So we only have the roof left on top on this slab which is above the eight floors of balconied apartments. That should be the final height. Cheers I've also heard that the final concrete deck is the roof, so theres no more superstructure to come ...

Re: Moving the airport to a less populated area

There was an airport that I came across in the USA years ago, that had the runways/flight paths much closer to their cbd then ours, and they had much taller buildings and a denser cbd in general. I can't for the life of me remember it though. San Jose (California)'s international airport is conveni...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

I love the term "cul de sac"..."arse end of the sack".

This implies Gawler Place will be a pedestrian mall with only delivery and emergency service access.

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.

Imagine if this was being built with the originally proposed full glazing instead of the current facade with the spandrels..... :shock: Still, with the crisp white concrete, the contrast is great. I've got high hopes for this site. Perhaps if it was an office tower it would've been floor to ceiling...
