[PRO] Re: 134-136 Wright Street | ~52m | 16 Levels | Motel

The cottages are worth saving IMO. I can't really see these being incorporated into a 16 storey development without it looking ridiculous. If they just park a fat highrise behind the older building ala the Tivoli Hotel development then I'd fuck this DA off in a heart beat. Just a note on heritage - ...

[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

https://i.imgur.com/ZKZvegu.jpg I thought sitting on the edges of the Anfield rd stand with your head turned so you're not looking straight over the Main stand at Anfield was bad. Imagine sitting through 3 sets of a tennis match for this view of absolutely nothing but the side of a stand, lest you ...

[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Once saw an international tennis event there some years back and being a poor student bought tickets in the far end bay in the southern stand. Struck me then what an absurd design MD was for centre court tennis. They had no qualms in selling expensive tickets for seats with a great view of everythi...

Do you think think a Timezone would work here, say over one whole floor?
I was born in the 80s, so yes
Reminds me of Downtown in Hindley Street.
Sunday mornings were for $10 lock-in at Timezone Meridian

Kids these days think a lock-in is a mobile phone contract

It needs a chance to be completed. It's like judging someone before their born aha. It might be a night owl & shoot lasers & shit ;) Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk 131 metres of a 135m facade is enough to judge. The balconies on the corner look like a damned shower curtain rod. Amazingly, I t...

Here’s the trick. Get rid of the dam car park. It’s ugly, we have enough and it’s prime land for something much better.

The only hotel operators that should be shitting themselves are those with a 20+ year old product that they never bothered to refresh.

Trying to stay optimistic. Really wish it was the Twin St one though.
People are just setting the bar low and hoping to be surprised in the opposite direction for a change, rather than next door's glossy render that turned out being the hottest thing out of 1960s Bucharest

[U/C] Re: Penny Place | 78m | 24 levels | Apartments

I wonder, with only 50% sold, if saying they're 'breaking ground' is just a psychological trick to lock in more buyers or if they've got enough capital to launch speculatively? This is funded out of Kerry Stokes' pocket. No bank is involved to stipulate a minimum number of presales. You're right th...

Why do people make such strange (negative) assumptions? Simply put, the buyer of an apartment which is significant % of our total build cost asks for something, yeah you try to do it!
