[U/C] Re: GPO Exchange | 85m | 22 Levels | Office

The short building on the left hand side (formerly known as the MLC building) was built in 1959 and was one of the first buildings from the Modern Movement. Not bad for a 60 year old building. 1957. It was also previously known as the Beacon Building, due to the weather beacon that used to be on th...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I'm sick of this "I don't want to pay because I don't use it" crap. Yes, country motorists may never use an Adelaide metropolitan freeway, but I'm also not likely to use an area school in the middle of the state, nor drive on the Strzelecki, and I'll probably never get my share of the RAH back in b...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

If the tram is extended to the northern edge of North Adelaide, and the city council closed 400 U-park spaces in the CBD and built 400 U-park spaces near the tram that opened on the day the CBD one closed, it gets 400 less cars in the CBD, neutral revenue, and a new development site in the CBD.

[U/C] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

I would say it is a post war directory, because the land for Adelaide Airport is depicted, along with West Beach Road and Morphett Road shown as closed roads. The site for Adelaide Airport was selected in 1946 (but the airport was not built until 1955, and opened in 1956), so I would say the directo...

Thank you SBD, but I certainly was not around in the 1940s! IIRC the time would have been around 1970 :)

]Correct on both counts. South Road ended at Grand Junction Road too. And before that, when I was a kid, it ended at a stop sign at Regency Road. The post for the stop sign was mounted in a 44-gallon drum of dirt, or maybe concrete, and Regency Road had no kerb along the northern side. You had to u...

[SWP] Re: 69-71 Light Square | ~55m | 14lvls | Residential

Personally I think the "raw / unfinished" look on any building is disgusting. That development on Whitmore Square to me has always looked unfinished and almost "third world-ish" in comparison to older and well finished buildings. It just looks cheap and nasty and the less we have of this the better...

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

To park land or to not park land is the question. Many seem to think we should just view it as vacant land to be used for whatever. 180 years of blocking generic commericial use all so the generation in 2018 has spare vacant CBD land to put generic business on. The 2018 guys must feel so entitled t...
