Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

The Odeon Star cinema is just up the road in Semaphore, and Arndale and West Lakes are an easy drive...... Unfortunately I don't see a great chance of new cinemas in the Port unless there is a huge increase in population and that's a pity because movie theatres would improve the Port as a "destinat...

Well, I'm going against the general consensus here, i like it. I think the proposal compliments the existing infrastructure and is a unique addition. As for the whole "you cant build on the parklands" thing, large swathes of parkland are barren, useless dustpans. I think we should activate sections...

The first guest at the hotel will be Unnecessary. The second will be Mediocrity. Both staying at an Oval near you.....for a long long time.

I wasn’t trying to be condescending, it was a direct to the point question. On what grounds are you or I qualified to provide serious feedback on this or any proposal? How do you know the stadium wasn’t designed with the possibility of adding on to it as is the case with this development? The firm ...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Any news on when the landscaping is going to commence? The Port Rd/South Rd intersection is a pretty grim wasteland right now. The crooked goal post sculpture installation doesn’t help much either.

Here’s an idea Marshall and Olsen and co.. Instead of stuffing up the existing architecture and the event experience of millions (yes check it out..millions) of attendees who pay megabucks to go to the Oval over two years, how about building your must-have hotel as part of the Memorial Drive redeve...

-10 for the design. In the renders it looks like a clunky block of flats hanging off of what is currently a facade which is an enhancement to its setting and an impressive arrival experience for events patrons. Indeed the only feature dragging the proposal up to the lower levels of mediocity is the ...

Don't forget this large iconic landmark...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

Can I ask ‘Honey Of A City’ to give an example/s of a development/s that you would have liked to have seen here? To make it easier to see your vision for the site. Firstly, as a resident of the area, with generational connection with the Port, and a lifelong student of social history and industrial...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

Rev, read my comments again and note that I am openly asking you/the forum where you/the forum see the max. price range and where you think most of the buyers will come from? It may be basic comprehension but that is the purpose of the question mark at the end. Therefore I am more than happy to let...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

Rev I understand how you can say Pt Adelaide needs high rise apartments and needs this and that but what if there isn’t enough demand (ie buyers with money prepared to hand it over) for what you propose, what then? Do you still propose developers to over supply apartments regardless? It’s great to ...
