The fact this hasn't been bumped for ages means no-one has any big news on it. The cooking school may be part of Lot 14 though.

[U/C] Re: SkyCity Adelaide Casino Expansion | 55m | 12 Levels | Hotel

Comparisons to Brisbanes waterfront aren't that useful, as a lot of transport happens on the river and moves through that area. It could be a bare concrete plaza and it would still have a lot of people moving around. That Riverside area has more in common with Darling Harbor. Melbourne's riverside a...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

As far as I know the tunnel is not suitable for car traffic. You only have one lane each way. There should be double carriageways and an emergency lane each side. The emergency lane is very important. Also I'm not sure if there are any exits should there be an accident, a pile up or worse still a h...

Many grounds worldwide have had issues with grass when they've built retractable roofs or overhanging ones. If Perth Stadium has issue I'm sure they will sort them out. What counts the most is that the spectators get good views from every angle on every tier, are comfortable and have all the facili...

Glossing over the serious issues that Perth Stadium has, like the too hard playing surface, and the need for view and atmosphere obstructing crowd control fences around the entire fence line because the grandstands are elevated above the playing field. At least it doesn't kill its own grass as well...

No we should increase Adelaide Oval capacity to match Perth, then we'll get all the events instead of them, once and for all.

But won't other cities like Perth then just make their stadiums bigger, putting us right back in the same situation?

Re: Adelaide makes Top 10 for 2019 EIU most liveable cities index

Yeh yeh, so liveable with high unemployment/few job prospects, huge rise in cost of living and more pain to come on that front. Also from the article.. “What’s important to remember is that the Economist Intelligence Unit’s index is a composite rating made up 30 indicators, with only four of them b...

How many people on the tram do those load numbers assume? Seems like you can cram more into modern trams.

Ask the Greens about that one.

They shut down the refineries and the coal fired power stations.
Just curious, can you let me know when the Greens were in power?

Not that there was much doubt, but the "maybe the beautiful dark reflective glass is covered with protective backing" theory can be safely put to rest by the clearness of those windows on the westerly side of the south facing podium, where we can see the light from other windows behind shining throu...

Lol the “thin building on Bank Street” is a good piece of modernist architecture, sadly it hasn’t been very well maintained. I'm sure that this 2 star budget hotel will be well maintained.

It looks way too much like the thin building on Bank Street... Which is bad.
