Re: SA Economy

No one doubts the great lifestyle we have in Adelaide, we are one of the most liveable cities in the world after all. I would argue that a place like Melbourne growing at breakneck speed could become less liveable over the medium-long term with increased crime levels (we witnessed this already in Me...

[PRO] Re: Central Market

Backing up a couple of hours, one of these towers is described as going to be a hotel, but no brandname has been identified. Hilton have a hotel in a building it doesn't own. Is there a good reason that Hilton would not consider moving to the shiny new taller u=building next door, and leave it to t...

[PRO] Re: Central Market

I'm neither here nor there on the tower elements. It's a nice design, but it would suit the location better if the Hilton site were also being redeveloped. Why the Hilton haven't sought to be involved stumps me -- they've got an opportunity to renew and retain their prime location. There's nothing ...

[PRO] Re: Central Market

This really is sensational for the city! Great design that speaks to the existing markets, 24hr access, connectivity between laneways/streets and a focus on dining/retail for the lower levels. The only thing that can make this better is for the main tower to exceed 153m WOW WOW WOW! Love the lanewa...

Re: Great Southern train from Adelaide to Brisbane: Australia's new luxury train unveiled

Wow !! Look at those prices !! Definitely for rich train enthusiasts only!! How bloody rediculous. It's not the Orient Express. There is absolutely no history to this route, and how could any level of service justify nearly $8k for a couple of days stuck on a train, through some pretty boring count...

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

I think the Memorial Drive site could be used to build a new 25000-30000 seat rectangular stadium to maximise use and legacy of the Riverbank precinct, bringing higher capacity crowds closer to the city centre. To allow for more space and vibrancy, parts of Montefiore Rd and maybe War Memorial Driv...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

Screen shot from a live Xmas Pageant video on Facebook Looks to be a paint job E361C0F0-4F60-43A8-AC03-1168520FEC7A.jpeg I have always hated the colour of this building. Looks like a giant stain running down the building. As long as the white paint is of good quality, I think it will refresh the bu...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

I’m back working in the CBD after 5.5 years in the burbs and I’m quite impressed with the laneway/streetscape changes. Market to Riverbank link is looking (and feeling) great, plus there are improvements in other streets and laneways. I also like the look (and usefulness) of the digital bus stops al...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

Surely that’s the biggest hole ever dug in the Adelaide CBD?

The only other one I think which would come close was the Myer Centre.

Didn’t know where to put this, so thought this topic was the closest fit. The new ad for Mitsubishi ASX was filmed in Adelaide.

Both options are vastly inferior to google maps. Google By GPS I did mean Google Maps or if you must, TomTom based services like Apple Maps. If you use anything other than Google Maps you have junk traffic data ;) So Google Maps real-time traffic data is better than Apple Maps? Just asking, I find ...

Our CBD looking nice and dense there in that shot from the airport. Just need more 30-40 level tallies yo break up the skyline a bit.
