[PRO] Re: 274 North Terrace 52m | 16 Levels | Hotel

You have to wonder at the stupidity of the neighbouring owner. For the expense of a 7m wide 460 sqm block they could have turned their own huge parcel into a corner block worth a goldmine. Now they're hemmed in by the same sort of concrete wall that Ivan Milat was staring at for 20 years.

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

Moderators - perhaps it's time for a separate "greening" thread - a few of us on here have contributed opinions on trees, etc. that might be better off alone? Just a thought. There's a thread Id be up for. I spend my off days regreening a former communist backwater in central Europe one plant at a ...

Yep, 60's and 70's has a lot to answer for.

Was the building on the left I think?
Win some lose some in this pic. Whatever is to the right of the Edmund Wright building gave way to the CML building.

Not yet. Second proposal advertised this week without a da. Might be a new trend. Not going through the process unless they have enough interest.
As a buyer, this is as big a red flag as they come.

Drove past this site today and there was a big sign advertising this development. No da has been lodged however. Corner pirie and Frome.

Is this the site of the RSB building? If so, not too happy because it's a nice building.

Not sure if my bearings are right, but I think Adelaidean might be blocked by Sofitel from that angle

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Ballarat is more self-sufficient than Murray Bridge is. But, it does have roughly three times the population. Melton is probably more of a commuter town to Melbourne than Ballarat. One only needs to look at the key reasons Monarto failed: it was too far from Adelaide to viably interact with the cit...

It's as if every person who comments on the western wall thinks they're the first person ever to do so.

Like, you've got me. It's concrete. How about that.

I think this block is wider than the hotel at 50 hindley (corner hindley and bank st), so there's something. 16 stories though. Yikes. Will really give Ayres House that Goulburn Supermax feel.

Also 133 Rundle Mall would be an example of how it can be done without looking positively dire.

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.
