Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

City of Adelaide has now completed its final voyage and is safely moored on its barge at Dock 2. Hoping that the proposed Dock 2 maritime village moves along now and foot access from the Port centre is opened up soon via the proposed footbridge across Dock 1.

Just quietly, thank fkn chrst the State Bank/State Debt/Santos/Westpac/isosceles bloody triangle isn't the tallest anymore. It's like the bloody 30 year old who never moved out and playing master of puppets every day to remind you he's still there Hear hear. I’ve always thought of it as a symbolic ...

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Great tribute to the Riverbank stand. Hope they light it up at night to reflect the Oval lighting too. Would look great from the south bank and bridge.

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

Never really liked plonky Edwardian institutional architecture as a genre but now the trees are gone I’ll get the chance to enjoy it for years to come. The new landscaping better be bloody good. Really bloody good. It was the landscaping contractor that declared they couldn’t work with the trees in ...

What an eye-catcher this building is already - even more so when complete. Great precedent for future high-rise developments. :applause:

[U/C] Re: SkyCity Adelaide Casino Expansion | 55m | 12 Levels | Hotel

Recently returned from Brisbane. The Riverside area in the picture is pulsating with life day and night, as is Southbank just around the bend. We might not like their building design but we can learn a lot about how to activate an urban riverside precinct. The casino hotel will be central to that, a...

Ok so let’s build a pig and then maybe think of putting lipstick on it down the track? You know that’s not going to happen (at least the lipstick part). I assume you are only talking about the hotel component. Well yes it is a pig any way you look at it. I've said it before. Adding the hotel in its...

Make no mistake about it Adelaide Oval is a magnificent venue. Comparisons with Perth or Mars or Timbuktu are pointless. What give Adelaide the edge, besides its setting and great spectator experience is its uniqueness. And innovation and uniqueness is what a provincial city needs if it wants to be...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I must say, being down in ADL this past weekend, I'v very dissapointed by the landscaping of this. Looks so tacky, half arsed and very much up to par wit hthe 'Adelaide' standard. Dissapointing. Was thinking this yesterday when passing through. Why plant a bank of deciduous trees in front of a dull...

Some work being done today on the art installations on the corner of South Rd/Torrens Rd. Added more crooked poles and some screening. Hard to imagine the desired final effect at this point but may look good at night if the lighting is done well.

Can’t wait for the cheaper beers and chips and ticket prices this uber-ugly hotel will bring to us punters.

a fascinating view. What is the large complex on elder park, about where the current festival theatre is ?
That was the Schools Patriotic Fund Hostel which later became the Elder Park Migrant Hostel.

Great picture there Ben. Was it taken from Kodo? Lot of different textures surrounding the GPO. Done right the future development of the GPO site should bring it all together.
