Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Haven't been past in a while but has the landscaping at the Botanic gardens and festival theatre stops finally been done ? Sent from my SM-J730G using Tapatalk Festival Theatre was still bare a couple of weeks back. It had been scarcely planted last I saw, but some of those had been fried in the he...

[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

ABC News has a report up about the push in Perth to upgrade declining tennis facilities and the competition among the capitals to get a piece of the pre-Aus Open fixtures. Don't mind the mildly exaggerated headline: 'When Rafael Nadal won't use the court at Perth's State Tennis Centre, it's time to ...

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

However by trying to make housing more affordable/making purchasing property less expensive, the effect of getting rid of negative gearing (investment incentives) will impact rental supply and lead to this type of housing (renting) then being more expensive. Federal Labour just tried and lost the l...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

EB Games is closing four stores in Adelaide, including the one in City Cross. It’s a shame the centre’s owners didn’t reconfigure the mall front stores for a mini major with direct access to level one, as it’s yet another example of Adelaideans not shopping up. It'll be interesting to see who plugs ...

[U/C] Re: WEST (Football Park) | Developments & News

At the risk of derailing the thread, just wanted to throw out there that I'll always consider this development a missed opportunity to build a branch railway to West Lakes off the Outer Harbor line when land acquisition alongside the boulevard would have been relatively easier. Could have pushed the...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

What a load of garbage. He just listed a bunch of projects that "changed Adelaide over the last few years", but then says that the last decade was a failure and that the next decade is looking bright. And yet the number of cranes in the sky is decreasing as the number of proposals dry up and busine...

[U/C] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

I'm not a fan of this but I have to say I don't think that the wood you see is the final cladding. It looks like CLT panels with brackets already bolted for something to overlay. That said, although I know the photos are making it look lower than it is, it's also nowhere near as elevated as the rend...

Frome Street, to be exact.

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

I'm glad for it and hope to see a similar treatment one day applied to the full length of Gawler Place. It's a much enhanced entrance to the Mall, especially once the trees mature. But there are few design choices that niggle me. For one, the hanging garden 'arbours' -- IIRC, we got these rather tha...

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

I think you're overestimating the amount of traffic in the area. In all the times I've driven through I've rarely encountered a single car in the area. This, plus the fact that the Flinders Line will have a low frequency, makes grade separation pointless. It's less about right now, and more about w...
