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

With the right lighting this is going to look spectacular at nights. The festival centre needs to lift its game with that shabby laser light look thing they've got going on.

[PRO] Re: 80 Currie Street | 137m | 34 levels | Office

Office building, wont happen. If it was apartments or a hotel I would take this proposal seriously. GHS, have you considered offering your services to developers and builders around Adelaide? You seem to know a lot more than them. Of course there are all those times in the past where you turned out...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

Currie Street is really in need of a refurbishment with the proposal of 80 Currie Street, Sofitel, QT and 75-79 KWS.

Loving more height on North Tce. I think it looks fine, can't wait to see this one go up and transform our skyline :applause: FFS, there's no point in having height on a building if it looks like shit. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Personally I feel this has a nice Venetian look. I guess we...

Re: News & Discussion : New Restaurants, Bars & Night Clubs

Marys Poppins is moving into the old Apple/Hacidenda night club. I'd heard rumours about this move and looks like it's been confirmed on Adelaide Now. Is anyone able to post the full article? https://www.adelaidenow.com.au/subscribe/news/1/?sourceCode=AAWEB_WRE170_a&dest=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.adelaideno...

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

This location needs something special, not just a box as others have said. I'd love to see a scaled down version of the Flame Tower in Baku, as much as a pipe dream that may be (picture attached)

I took this photo at lunch from the north western side of Hindmarsh Square. It should be quite imposing from this angle once it's topped out.

Does this top out before construction comes to a halt over the December/January period?

I am not sure who designed this building but the top looks hideous. It looks like something is missing.
Wait, you looked at that photo and couldn't figure out that the building is still under construction?

I don't hate this but it could be better. I'd have preferred the building to be a little slimmer with more height.

The floor plates that over hang are really ugly. Are they just going to stay that raw concrete colour?

The Sofitel will be a glass box. Adelaide Oval has no impact on the skyline.
