Dont think this pic or a similar one has been posted, did a quick check but 57 pages..decent view/idea of the floorplate shape.

Re: SA Economy

We should be greening the desert like the Israelis. We have plenty of sun to generate energy and water to desalinate...FFS! Is that a good suggestion? Cheers We're not at the stage of needing to desalinate water for irrigation, but it's worth noting that the Northern Adelaide Irrigation Scheme is f...

Found this on reddit. Anyone know if that old building was indeed covered up to what it is today? https://preview.redd.it/pgfdf5yhuz141.jpg?width=640&crop=smart&auto=webp&s=e47b6185c65a9c43d2502a8afd84c2f4ad6245e2 I wonder if it would be possible to remove the additions and restore what once was?

Drakes (until recently a Foodland franchisee), Romeo's, Chapley's (both still Foodland franchisees), OTR, AM/PM, X Convenience were once smaller SA companies. They have grown rather than be eaten by the bigger fish.
I wonder if someone as 'culturally sensitive' as ghs shops at Chapleys.

Re: Petrol Station Owners

As bits said, they're not really "petrol stations" any more. Both are becoming more convenience stores, including fast food, along with other car related services like the big car washes. Petrol is less of a focus than it was previously. Fuel would make up about 80 percent of the income for a petro...

[PRO] Re: Torrens Road Grade Separation

They won't touch the Hawker Street crossing as it's not within the scope of the project, but as I caught the train into town I saw that traffic had backed all the way into War Memorial Drive :( After seeing this and hearing that the Park Terrace Bridge is too low for the new electric trains to run ...

tfw your “unashamedly bold” vision is four metres taller than a building that’s been around since 1988. Do we have any idea if there’s even demand for a chunky new office building? That design is very bold for Adelaide. But, yawn..another 130m~ building. Where the 'ceiling' once was what, 18 floors...

If you really want to see how much of an impact this has, and on a sunny day especially, view it from War Memorial Drive near the Zoo.

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

There's a higher probability that they'll eventually demolish the stands underneath the new roof structure and rebuild rhe stands, then there is they'll demolish everything and start from scratch.

Lets be honest, its the Liberal party run by Lucas with a jellyfish Marshall as figure head.

Is it just me but coming into this project from either direction and you really have to have your wits about you to get into the correct lane to get where you want to go. It reminds me a bit like a video game that you have to make a quick decision on multiple divergent lanes to choose. I guess with...

Re: Petrol Station Owners

Interesting, i didn't know people could be so passionate about petrol station brands. We're a divided state along petrol station allegiances. In the left hand corner we have the OTR faction, in the right we have the anti-OTR, which is further divided between Coles/Woolies and others. Theres more pa...
