[PRO] Re: [PRO] Re: 52-66 King William Street | ~65m | 15 Levels | Southern Cross Arcade

15 storeys....so disappointing....was hoping for something around 40.....tall and sleek and slim. I'd rather a realistic 15 storey building that is built in the next 5 years rather than a 40 storey building that stays unbuilt. A 40 storey office tower in this environment, while we have buildings li...

Great view of the Adelaide skyline in the background....thank God you can't actually see Tom's Court! Agreed. I hadn't been down that part of the city for a while, but drove past it today. This thing looks horrific when driving south down King William from Victoria Square. I didn't think anything e...

[APP] Re: 203 North Terrace | ~115m | 35 levels | Student Accom

Such a shame overall that a higher end residential development isn't happening here. Yep. There is certainly an irony that 51 Pirie Street had its heritage protection removed because the 80s additions supposedly butchered it, but then the same planning commission turns around and allows this. Baffl...

Pretty significant downgrade. I'm prepared to bet the farm that we will end up with brown glass too, not sure who they are kidding with the gold.

[U/C] Re: 23-29 Market Street | 58m | 17 levels | Hotel Indigo

Perhaps the podium has some brutalist elements (based purely on what I can see in this photo- haven't really followed it other than that), but I wouldn't have said the rest of the building does. I would hate it if this style of building was continually replicated, in fact more than that- I think I w...

Does anyone know if the plan is to paint a couple of murals on those raw concrete walls?

Very good point. Notre Dame was instrumental in revitalising Fremantle during the 90s.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Is it just me or do other people find the reporting on the proposed bus route changes really quite strange in the sense that all the articles focus on the "number of bus stops lost".... No substantive investigation on proposed frequency or cost or efficiency or coverage (I suppose "losing bus stops...

I don't mind it either. The cladding makes it look a lot less drab than I was expecting, and I think the simplied windows help it.

[PRO] Re: 51 Pirie Street | ~86m | 21 Levels | Hyatt

Disagree with you Nathan. I walk past it regularly and for me it still has good character and appeal at street level. A development on this site could have been an opportunity to correct the botched 80s job and integrate the facade with a much more creative and sympathetic design Even so, it isn't n...

[PRO] Re: 51 Pirie Street | ~86m | 21 Levels | Hyatt

I was never quite comfortable with the idea of demolishing a local heritage place, but consoled myself with the knowledge that what was replacing it, had some good height and was of high architectural quality. The height has now disappeared, and it seems judging from the vibe that the design will a...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

Not the catalyst development I think most of us were hoping for.... What a joke, surely there are planning regulations that somehow stipulate what is now deemed appropriate use for a CBD site? A lot of people harp on in Adelaide about desire for more development in this city, and by result our plan...

Have there been any renders of the side walls yet? I really hope they don't just leave them as raw concrete.

[U/C] Re: 104-106 Currie Street | 117m | 33lvl | Sofitel Hotel

The front of the building looks great, but is any one else not such a fan of the white panels they are using on the north and western sides? (Possibly the eastern side too, haven't really had a chance to view it form that vantage point yet). Hopefully more of a pattern will emerge the higher it gets...
