Brother, how can you say that the Adelaidean is cheaper than Realm when they're both being built on the same shoe string budget
of $100 million ?
Not a fair comparison since one is all residential and the other is hotel.

[PRO] Re: 64 Currie Street | 92m | 25 Levels | QT Hotel/Office

Nothing exceptional, but will bring a lot to that street.

With the number of hotels going up on Currie Street it makes me hope the development making it more into a bus-way and improving the streetscape happens in the not too distant future.

That glazing is so cheap looking, the renders showed something that looked more like Realm. :(

edit: The podium of the Uniting Communities tower on Franklin Street has better looking glass as well.

There's plenty of room there, as Will pointed out, although hopefully they go taller now with the precedent of two 100m~+ towers in the area. And either side of Masonis hall they could do something as well. Though I'd imagine there might be a few more court cases about views :lol: On the western si...

Damn that student tower sticks out like dog balls. Can only hope some decent towers on North Tce go up to hide it. The Masonic Lodge is on North Terrace in front of it so it's going to be visible for decades to come. There was a proposal several years ago, to demolish the hall at the back of the Ma...

Even Morrison agreed that it was right for Shorten to stand up and say no. Morrison also said Shortens mum is irrelevant to the election. Whats your point?

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

The trick to getting timetables sychronised is to forget about timetables. Trains should come every five minutes on the Gawler, Seaford and Outer Harbor lines. Then the bus timetable won't matter, the trains will always be frequent enough to connect. To do that would either require building and man...
