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

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 ...

A moody one. I was running out of light, but managed to capture this against the dusty early evening sky.

Re: Commonwealth Games in Adelaide

If it’s not feasible in 2026, I can’t possibly see how it might be feasible in 2030 or 2034. The same infrastructure will still have to be built!! And I can’t see the private sector paying for it.

Re: Commonwealth Games in Adelaide

There’s an article on AdelaideNow that the Commonwealth Games bid is on the brink of collapse because the $3.5 billion cost is too high. How could it cost that much? I though we were trumpeting that we could host it quite inexpensively because most of the sporting infrastructure already exists? The ...

Signage. https://i.imgur.com/B5v4qBq.jpg https://i.imgur.com/mMXO1Kf.jpg The glazing is very good, which has saved this building from being a bland shocker. But I’m still of the opinion that the square window proportions are wrong. Either horizontally or vertically proportioned windows would have b...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

To me, the only places suitable in the city for high-end luxury is North Tce between KWS and Charles St, or the GPO building — the latter ideally combined with both the Victoria Square and Market Arcade developments fully completed. I’d have thought refurbing the old Gallerie on Gawler Place betwee...

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

Recently returned from Brisbane. The Riverside area in the picture is pulsating with life day and night, as is Southbank just around the bend. We might not like their building design but we can learn a lot about how to activate an urban riverside precinct. The casino hotel will be central to that, ...

Extension of 3 - 5 levels of this office building opposite the RAh is expected to be approved by the ACC next week.
From a construction, structural integrity viewpoint, how do you do that ON TOP of an existing building?

Note I’m not a builder or engineer. Just interested in knowing.

Re: Melbourne Suburban Rail Loop

Well there is a plan for AdeLINK, it's just dead under this government. AdeLINK wasn’t a plan (yet). It was a vision. Has there actually been any design/planning work done on it in the past 5 years since it was announced? There was some feasibility study done on the PortLINK line ... that’s all I’m...

We knew that the Libs weren't going to send trams beyond the parklands, but now they've also abandoned their CBD trams election promise (North Adelaide + City Loop)... Whoops! What??
