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

I actually think the Intercon is somewhat unfairly maligned on here sometimes, as a building I think the design isn't bad - sort of reminds me a bit of Australis House on Grenfell. The colour probably isn't ideal/hasn't aged too well though. Also, the atrium has a great 80s futurism type feel.

Re: Commonwealth Games in Adelaide

Advertiser is reporting a bid won’t be proceeding - article is paywalled though.

The Adelaide Metro Infocenter now has big signs up saying their lease expires this month.

[APP] Re: 126 Wakefield Street | 61m | 18 Levels | Tribe Hotel

Has anyone passed by the site? I wonder if works has already started although I doubt if that's the case since I haven't heard that this has been out for tender If someone had and there were works happening I’m sure they’d post it. No need to keep bumping threads asking essentially the same questio...

[APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

Whether or not one agrees with this development (in my case, I don't agree with it), there is something very concerning about the severe lack of public consultation over these such developments that are built on publicly owned land. The same goes for the Festival Plaza, O-RAH site and so forth... E...

It looks way too much like the thin building on Bank Street... Which is bad.
Lol the “thin building on Bank Street” is a good piece of modernist architecture, sadly it hasn’t been very well maintained.

[APP] Re: 274 North Terrace ~55m | 16 Levels | Hotel

Reminds me a bit of the Student tower proposed for Twin Street. Looks good I think. I was confident they’d come up with something at least somewhat interesting due to the small size of the space.
