[VIS] Re: 181 Waymouth Street | ~60m | 17 Levels | Apartments

Looks like the design has changed a fair bit...looks average imo Actually the two rounded winged-roofs would've made this development more dated. Something out of Flash Gordon. Now it will look more like all the other apartments, so if it dates all the others will too. :lol: Cheers P.S. Nathan had ...

Heritage cottages under threat from new hotel but no public consultation Local Three 1880 heritage-listed row cottages on Wright Street could be partially demolished to make way for a 16-storey hotel – but State Government planning rules mean the public won’t be consulted or be able to view the pla...

[PRO] Re: Brougham Place | 54m | 4 x up to 16lvls | Mixed Use

Revisiting the plans on page 3 of this thread, if this development goes ahead in its entirety it'll really change the North Adelaide skyline quite dramatically - in a good way too imo.

Ha... was just thinking of their Surfers Paradise Timezone site in the mall [their n.1 site in Australia and yes I know .... we are not the GC].
I think it could work at a smaller city site, but not one so large and prominent - rent would be $$$.

Do you think think a Timezone would work here, say over one whole floor?
No

No word on start date for Adelaide's tallest building Local Four months after the Adelaide Metro King William Street infocentre shut to make way for what will become Adelaide’s tallest building, there is still no word on when the 39-storey project will proceed.

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Wonder what's the likelihood of a Uniqlo or something similar opening in that spot? Or would they want a mall shopfront?

The market will regulate itself in this instance. If it doesn't make financial sense to build a hotel due to market saturation, investors won't invest their money into building one. I'm sure they would have analysed occupancy rates as part of the decision making process. Yeah - that's what I mean. ...

[U/C] Re: 11 Frome Street | 135m | 37 Levels | Crowne Plaza / Adelaidean | New tallest

I don't think it being a relatively rectangular "boring" shape is the problem - probably my favourite skyscraper is the Seagram Building (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seagram_Building). What I think is disappointing here is the quality - like Ben says. At least at night it will probably look better.

Re: SA Economy

Once we get private sector job growth (not just reliant on government contracts like the submarines), we will see population growth follow suit with ex-Adelaide people returning as well as new migrants coming here. Might be waiting a while for that: https://www.afr.com/policy/economy/public-sector-...
