Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

It need have no more impact to Gawler Place than to any of the other cross streets (Pultney, Frome etc), but it's worth noting Gawler Place is already a cul de sac -- it (rightly) stops dead at the mall. Also, I doubt there's need to worry about trams. If there's ever a tram from Henley, it would m...

elderpark.png I think somebody's gonna be in trouble for releasing unannounced state government concepts. Note also Bicentennial Park in front of the railways.

The interesting part to me is the forecast link from Currie to Anster Street.

No pun intended, but to a 'layperson' that whole riverbank thing looks pretty awesome.

Any ideas about what the "Jewel" is about?
My guess is a performance pontoon/platform to solidify Elder Park as the city's outdoors event space.

Re: [PRO] St Peters Cathedral [$100 million]

I think it's fine for the state and federal government to contribute funds for restoration/conservation of an item of significant heritage. However, all the rest of it the church can pursue on its own, especially if the state builds the tram line. I think they're optimistic about the extent of visit...

Btw, developer has placed application on hold while the heritage council considers state rather than local protection for the Sands and McDougall building. Hopefully that means they're not challenging but intend to work with this rare Art Deco example. See article at InDaily : 'Another city heritage...

[PRO] Re: 51 Pirie Street | 94m | 21 Levels | Hyatt

How is it that other cities are able to have and other developers & architects are able to create tall buildings clad entirely in glass, but we can't do that here? Isn't the Adelaide City Council notorious for keeping Adelaide in the 70's? Here in Melbourne we have the opposite problem, we are gett...

Aunty had an article about it:

Locals are trying to get the development reclassified at the ERD Court so it has to go to public consultation. Council supports it.

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

For Kimberley-Clark to get the full benefit, the line needs to be reinstated from their factory all the way through to avoid double handling. For the SA government, it has the problem that this proposal might increase economic activity for export from the Limestone Coast region, but if it does, it'...

Looks like the former Asian supermarket on the corner of Moonta and gouger Street is being fit out as Commonwealth Bank.
I was hoping for something more lively for Moonta St.

But I suppose this means the existing CBA on Gouger will become something else now.

Re: Superloop 500

No 500 next year for Victoria Park, so we are graciously spared the 3 months of unsightly and expensive construction in the park lands:
