Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

Are they actually extending the Obahn, or just painting some red lines on the road and giving buses a 5 second jump on everyone at the stop lights?

The building was 93% sold in December, so basically you and GHS are the only people who care.

[U/C] Re: Uniting Communities | 68m | 19 Levels | Mixed Use

I think the colour contrast between the podium levels and rest of the building stops the whole building dominating the street level. Nice building.

Travelodge Asia is a hotel developer+franchiser, it's normal that it would be on the market as such

Question time. Is this going to be the best development this city has ever seen?
Ever - no.

Since the CML building, possibly.

[APP] Re: 51 Pirie Street | 114m | 28 Levels | Hotel

The building isn't worthy to be kept, but worthy of being commemorated with a plaque? :applause: On the plus side, it will have some comedy value. Like the plaque I saw on a wall in this little village on the border with Austria yesterday. It was commemorating the fact that "it is possible" that a f...

Photo on Bigfooty forum from March 2 https://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/football-park-discussion.904029/post-59714287 I'm surprised as I thought they were retaining the old members.

You're right that it's where the logo goes, but they have still screwed up according to render.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

I can imagine there may be some situations where protrusions may be undesirable. For instance, I don't like the metallic thing that solely sticks out from the Bendigo & Adelaide Bank on Grenfell Street. But I'm not sure the aim of enforcing a 'city wall' effect throughout the whole of the city is i...

Is that a mistake on the far right side where the panels are not zig zag?
Same mistake I was talking about at the begging of December. It's a pretty epic fuck up.

What did the level 1 balconies overlook "before"? Is this actually an improvement? I think it is a big improvement for them, and will continue to be so assuming the new development attracts people and the place actually thrives rather than become a ghost town. Below are 2 images taken from Google M...

At the panel meeting last night, Cr Anne Moran, who had reported the illegal use of the land to staff, said such carparks were “licences to print money”. “That’s why they are so dangerous and so attractive to developers,” she said. “It is something that we, the council, … really discourages because...

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.
Think the same about your posts really
