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

Adelaides casino from it's inception was always meant to be a smaller more boutique style,European if you like, as opposed to its eastern counterparts. If the likes of Darwin, Alice Springs or evenPerth have gone down the resort path, it's because they exist as more standalone venues-destinations i...

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

Let's be clear. Skycity has taken a big gamble (pardon the pun) on this project. I mean c'mon, even Darwin Casino has higher revenue than this place. Lets support it by taking the better half for a night out in what is definitely the best high end hotel in the city. If I'm going out for the evening...

Re: Barossa | Oscar Seppeltsfield | 12 Levels

Someone proposes something unique and that would become an iconic structure and major draw card, and they cry and scream they don't want it. But they'll then be the first to complain that not enough South Aussies visit their region or that government should do more to support local tourism and busi...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

CDJ kept on dropping hints that it was still being worked on, but given the years since we heard anything and the fact that the companies website is dead I think it's safe to say it's never gonna happen. Would still love to see what the plans were though.

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

The hbr intersection is 7 lanes as it stands with a fair bit of space everywhere. You only need 2 lanes of through traffic in each directions. Which to me means you could do the cut and cover in 2 halves. Could, but then you're looking at taking much longer and more expense since I imagine they'd h...

Yeah the water feature looks awful, but it seems like it's part of the stoush where the state government built it and wanted the ACC to take on responsibility for the costs to upkeep? Seems like a stand off where no-one wants to establish precedent of being responsible for it.

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

As I live in the inner-west I'm trying to not have too much of an opinion on the tunnel debate to avoid any NIMBYism (far enough away from South Road that we wouldn't be effected either way other than how the trip into town looks afterwards). I don't know about the feasibility of cut and cover. How ...

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

'Cheap' seems to be the most commonly used word on this forum. Most of which by people who have no direct involvement or vested interest in such projects. Probably never even set foot on a commercial construction site for that matter. :lol: I suppose, maybe painting the concrete is more expensive t...

That food court is one of the worst in Adelaide, I'm really glad to see it go. Good riddance.
It's often one of the busiest.

Re: [PRO] St Peters Cathedral [$100 million]

Will they be making their facilities available for public uses that go against their religious views? If so could be worth considering, if not then there is no reason for the government to be funding this.

Went for a walk past a couple of days ago, I think this building will look fine on the skyline, but you can definitely see the cheapness of the materials more up close.

Yeah, it really shows off the cheapness of the Adelaidean leaving so much bare concrete exposed.

Re: Barossa | Oscar Seppeltsfield | 12 Levels

I quite like it, so long as it isn't too obtrusive on the views from other wineries around there. We were in the Barossa recently visiting some local wineries. There seems to be a lot of push back against this project where they are all happy with the idea of a high quality hotel in the area, but t...
