[U/C] Re: [U/C] Re: 11 Frome Street | 135m | 37 Levels | Crowne Plaza / Adelaidean | New tallest

What is sad about the whole saga is that it can happen again. We should have had a change in our State Government Laws/Constitution that makes Governments accountable. Someone in Government should have not just not got reelected or sacked but they should have gone to jail for the stuff-up that was ...

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

I think the Memorial Drive site could be used to build a new 25000-30000 seat rectangular stadium to maximise use and legacy of the Riverbank precinct, bringing higher capacity crowds closer to the city centre. To allow for more space and vibrancy, parts of Montefiore Rd and maybe War Memorial Driv...

If only it was built twice as high... and they could demolish the old Hyatt (now Intercontinental).
If only this was on the site of the InterContinental/Riverside Centre/Plenary building, the area would look so much tidier and less cluttered.

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Its sad that the gateway to Rundle Mall, supposedly our prime shopping precinct (from Rundle St) will be a KFC & Chemist Warehouse. Not long ago it was Australian Fashion Labels/Sanity Music/Telstra etc.. maybe it’s a sign of the times that only lower cost/high turnover businesses can pay the big r...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

KFC in Myer Centre has closed recently a big black hoarding has been put over it. Unsure if its just closed for reno or closed permanently. It has definitely made McDonald's even busier now being the only fast food chain in there. Not sure if posted elsewhere, but the Pulteney St tenancy next to Ro...

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

I agee SRW and it’s looks like its going to be a congested area let alone adding another tower. The stakeholders have had years to agree and did sign off on the plan so I am wondering why didn’t they make their suggestions or any changes at the start? Also with multiple neighbouring stakeholders I ...

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

I'm not saying the concept design for the square is by any means exceptional, or that it can't be improved, but consider me really bloody sceptical of Walker Group's intent here. It strikes me as an exercise of shifting goal posts and passing bucks -- specifically, the supposed 'costs blowouts', is...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

The former Optus building on the corner of King William & Pultney is getting a fresh coat. Looked like they were changing from the faded mustard blending into off white, to just white. When you say 'fresh coat'... I'm of the understanding that this building is a glazed cladding, please tell me they...

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

True. But imo, we should have two indoor arenas, a larger one and a smaller one, and several outdoor courts capable of being used as part of an international tournament. These indoor arena facilities aren't used merely for tennis or basketball or netball, but concerts and other types of events. Acr...

[PRO] Re: Goodwood/Springbank/Daws Road Intersection

There's no reason Peter Van couldn't wrangle a deal with the government to relocate to a new building on the corner next to the high school where the existing road will be removed. Might work out cheaper for the government. Would be a shame to lose the green space though. How about the area where t...

[PRO] Re: Goodwood/Springbank/Daws Road Intersection

That petrol station isn't very old (maybe 5 years?). Oh well - stupid decision allowing it to be built there. Good riddance. Pleased that Bedford isn't being touched. Hopefully Peter Van relocates close by. There's no reason Peter Van couldn't wrangle a deal with the government to relocate to a new...

All your points are valid. I just think we should embrace this upgrade and enjoy having proper Tennis back in our fair City. The upgrade is only half finished. Can't we at least judge it once it is finished and the tournament has been played out. Just because it is not the upgrade we first wished f...

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

I actually think the upgrade looks great. I am excited for this venue. Both for tennis and concerts etc. While the exterior may look great, as far as viewing tennis on centre court, the ends of the square on stands are virtually useless. Not only will at least one end be a long way from the Court i...
