[U/C] Re: 89-109 Gray Street | 59m | 17 Levels | Student Accom

When I was doing Henley Beach runs on the Adelaide Metro, I probably picked up one person per year at that first stop on Currie St. With that building up the drivers will now get swamped!

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

I’m so bored of this lot screeching “...but LIGHT’S VISION!” every time anything north of North Terrace is proposed as if he was Jesus walking and every stroke of his 1836 quill is sacrosanct. When I took my mrs to Adelaide for a visit I took her to Light's Vision. Apparently in the time I have bee...

From the info I posted above, make of it what you will. The loan from SAFA of up to $42m will be provided at a standard market rate on a 30-year principal and interest arrangement. As the landlord, the State Government has provided the necessary works approval following consideration by Cabinet. 30...

Just me, or have they screwed up something chronic on the patterning of the facade on the top right?

[APP] Re: 269 North Terrace | 118m | 34 Levels | Student accommodation

I'm laughing at the idea of concrete precast panels that are a "similar colour" to the originally proposed glass. The DA specifies two different glazing types - "grey" and "spandrel" (which is grey). So, I suppose offering concrete of a "similar" colour is doable. :lol: If you completely disregard ...

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

Doesn’t look great from that angle. Pretty much only looks decent on Franklin street and even then it’s only the podium. Just my opinion. On the other hand, a bloody welcome change from the sea of glass boxes. Each to their own. I'm not one for modern architecture overall, but this building does en...

[U/C] Re: West Franklin | 54m & 64m | 17 & 20 lvls | Apartments

The angle of the initial renders really exaggerated the presence of the brick facade. From other angles it has basically no presence at all. Disappointing from a street level aesthetic pov.

Woods Baggot have done some great developments around the city, right? I have a little more hope in this turning out well.
Depends how far you cast the net. WB is from Adelaide. Technically, buildings like the Bonython Hall and St Peters Cathedral are from them (or their founding partners).

[U/C] Re: Her Majesty’s Theatre Expansion

^^ Adelaide had a lot of small theatres throughout the city. Not all of them were killed off by modernism per se, but rather were re-purposed as cinemas. Their second/final death occurred when they could no longer survive as cinemas (and were repurposed as things like supermarkets). Many were lost b...
