[APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

Vehicles entering the underground area be it from the east car park or southern service area are stopped and checked. Of course that doesnt stop someone detonating a device at that point. There's a pretty sizeable police presence during games. Smashing out hotel windows? Hotels dont have the same w...

Re: Adelaide Motorsport Festival

I agree with Marshall cutting the funding to the fashion and motorsport festivals. Neither of them are bring in toursists from interstate. If they're not bring tourists in then why should the government support them ? Now I know in your one dimensional brain it doesn't mean anything as there's no d...

[U/C] Re: Renaissance Arcade | 132m | 40 Levels | Realm Apartments

I hope the developers of Adelaidean are taking notice. THIS is how you treat the facade of a premier tower. This already feels of such higher quality than Adelaidean. If only it was 50 or 60 levels instead. This deserves to be our tallest tower, not the cheap job down the road. Brother, how can you...

Is it just me or does it seem a lot of our highrises are becoming narrower? Is it because of higher land prices or is there another reason?

It's not a good/bad thing. Some "narrower" buildings look great. Just an observation.

He was a friend of the free market with his deregulation.

And was the first prime minister to recognise women’s worth and stop the sausagefest in workplaces with his sex discrimination act.

Re: What has been your longest commute?

Update 2 months in. I was full time for the first month, now I’m permanent part time which is helpful as I can go back to study. Murray Bridge really isn’t that far at all. A nice drive. However in saying that, I would not be complaining if a public train went here kind of like the Sydney to Gosford...

Surely they can add a 4m antenna to make this our tallest. I would be proud to have this as our tallest. Those panels look great.

Pussy riot, Red hot chilli peppers, RCC at Adelaide uni, final year of the Palais, etc

Any comments on the festivals ?
Not great. It’s quite boring really. Needs some things that appeal to Adelaide families like Barnesy.

[APP] Re: 269 North Terrace | 118m | 36 Levels | Student accommodation

To be honest, I hope this one doesn't happen. Adelaide finally gets a new tallest (sad but true, something we will be judged by) and we get a student accom building built just metres away. For hotel guests and apartment owners facing North, they'll be looking straight at this thing.... built right ...

I’m not bagging the design but is it just me or does this look nothing like the render? I thought it was going to be mainly white with an almost orange tinge. This looks like they flogged some of the materials of the Calvary Hospital down the street. In saying that, I really like the design and thin...

I believe Realm looks fantastic. I hope it turns out like the renders. I did prefer the first design with more gold but still really liking what we have. Realm and Luminesque are my favourites in design but I am not worried about Adelaidean as much as I was previously. I would only give it a 7/10 t...
