Is there any reason for the massive axpanse of concrete between the tracks north of nth Terrace? There is no crossover. It does not look the best.
I'm assuming (hoping) that there will be some landscaping including flower/bush plantings between the tracks, hence the large gap.

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

The Citi Centre Arcade Telstra Shop closed yesterday (Wednesday Jan 31), they were already taking their signs down off the building at 7.00PM. They will be reopening in the old BankSA building (opposite RMP) in April, it looks as though they will be using multiple levels of this building, I imagine...

Not bad. I wish some of these 'tall' proposals would have interesting shaped roof lines though. At the moment we are in for a monotonous boxy skyline.

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

Can anyone confirm whether there is new permanent feature lighting for the AFC? I drove past on Saturday night and caught a quick glimpse of what looked like some really nice lighting/projections along the roof lines. Haven't been able to find a pic but here is a mockup of what (I'm pretty sure) it ...

Re: Crane Counter: CBD 9 | Metro 2 | Total 11

The thing is for a project like this a commercial builder wont have even started unless the financing was guaranteed for the project and a big down payment of say 10-20 % of the job is made. I would think there was an iron-clad guarantee with the bank/financiers that the money was in place before t...

This one was never gonna be pretty, but it helps justifying it as the price we had to pay for a potential new tallest in the Adelaidean :twisted:.

I believe some will also be moved to the Fat Controller. Just go on their FB page if you are that concerned.

Re: Interactive maps of the former tramway network

Amazing work! I was so surprised to see that a stub ran to Unley Oval along Oxford Tce.

Did the Goodwood Road tram ran under the underpass or over the top?

As exciting as this development is I think we will find that the land for Tower 2 (taller tower) will be sold off with DA before it gets developed - if ever.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I still think the most simple plan is best.....north-south line Riverbank to Glenelg, east west line Entertainment Centre to East End. The problem with this plan is that anyone travelling the Glenelg line and being destined to a location west of the KW St intersection will suddenly lose the amenity...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Do we have any idea what kind of timetable will be used with the new extension? will every second tram go east instead of west? How often will they go up to the Festival Center? Well I don't think that every second tram traveling east would be possible if the intersection as shown in the PDF linked...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

While I don't disagree that they may not be so concerned about a significant 'external frontage', one has prominence in the Emporium while the other could potentially have an escalator up to a tacky CX space.

I agree with Nathan that both sites would seem unsuitable to Uniqlo.
