[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

Whatever the Indigenous gallery becomes, it needs to be led by Indigenous people so it doesn't end up another staid museum for the white gaze. In my view, as a non-indigenous person, I think people would like to visit an institution that celebrates Aboriginal Australia as an ancient but continuous ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

The site doesn't seem like it would be big enough for a decent aquatic center.

Re: Shift Hindmarsh Stadium into the city

Is a rectangular stadium the best use of that land in the long term? Bearing in mind it's right next to our prime health and medical/research/teaching precinct, the future Women's and Children's Hospital as well as the convention center. Is it not likely that one of these may require extension in t...

Is there even enough room over the marshalling yards to build a stadium or will it slightly encroach on the parklands?
It would encroach a little onto existing parklands, but if they are building over the lines there it should be possible to return an equal amount of public space as that removed.

Re: Mad March 2019

[...] I think there is a seriously strong argument to make for Rundle Street becoming a one way street at this point to vastly increase the amount of outside space for eateries. From Frome Road to East Tce I say make it a one lane one way street and try and bring more year long liveliness to the ar...

Re: Mad March 2019

As long as passengers hop in my taxi, its good This is a good point. Not only do the festivals bring life to the city they also generate a good income for cab drivers, hospitality workers, security guards, etc. What amazes me is how the city can be so vibrant for these four weeks but then the vibra...

North of underpass: 46k In underpass: 36k South of underpass: 51k Source: LocationSA (2017 data) Thanks. That implies that the underpass see's 2/3 to 3/4 of the traffic compared to other nearby sections. That would likely imply that while 2 lanes either direction is low for a freeway, it's unlikely...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

With all this discussion on how many lanes Gallipoli Underpass needs to be, does anyone know the traffic volumes the underpass currently sees compared to the rest of South Road? Given the amount of entering and exiting traffic I wouldn't be surprised if the underpass sees less traffic passing throug...

[APP] Re: 269 North Terrace | 118m | 36 Levels | Student accommodation

To be honest, I hope this one doesn't happen. Adelaide finally gets a new tallest (sad but true, something we will be judged by) and we get a student accom building built just metres away. For hotel guests and apartment owners facing North, they'll be looking straight at this thing.... built right ...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

The Anzac Highway/South Road intersection is pretty much the primary point for traffic entering/leaving South Road. On those grounds they may think that 2 lanes each way through the underpass is enough. Going down to 2 lanes at that point also allows merging traffic to enter and turn the road back i...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

Ten years to plan a suitable replacement. By that point, hopefully, Adelaide's retail sector will have firmly sprawled out of Rundle Mall and further into surrounding streets. In which case, I can see this being an ideal location for a mixed used retail precinct. Engineering these days would allow ...

Re: Shift Hindmarsh Stadium into the city

Personally I think Hindmarsh is a perfect location for a soccer stadium. If Adelaide were any other city (i.e. the parklands weren't there) it would be considered a prime inner city location anyway. This is something people tend to forget. For context, Coopers Stadium is closer to Adelaide train st...

Let's do another comparison :

Adelaidean - 37 levels - $100 million
Sofitel Hotel - 33 levels - $140 million

I'll take quality over quantity, any day of the week.
Unless that Sofitel has apartment sized rooms that's a pretty meaningless comparison.
