Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Urban Sprawl & Density

By accurate I meant to scale.

Newark is very much part of the greater NYC contiguous urban zone so its inclusion makes total sense. The 'Northeast Megalopolis' on the other hand....

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Urban Sprawl & Density

^^^ Here's an image that has been floating around for a few years. https://sustainingpeople.files.wordpress.com/2014/11/urban-areas2-1024x479.jpg Not sure how accurate it is; I feel like Sydney and Melbourne should be slightly larger than they appear on that graphic compared to the width of Adelaide...

Con, please consider selling your beloved site to Theo and Steve. North Adelaide could use the vision and wizardry they applied to the East End. Hoooooold on a second, before you start making such stupid comments let's put some little-known facts out there... Theo was the reason this site was never...

Sandy Wilkinson is no authority on cityscape and design. Can you imagine if this monstrosity he designed had gone up in place of Liberty Towers in Glenelg some years back?

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

So it would effectively be Collins St but with buses instead of trams. Sounds amazing - along with the PT benefits I couldn't think of a better way to unify the retail and business parts of the CBD than getting rid of the 4 lane highway of single occupant cars that is Grenfell St. Clearly too good ...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

The number of sleazy late night massage parlours that have opened over the last few years has been absolutely disgraceful. But I guess when we have the highest unemployment level in Australia then many Asian females are going to revert to this type of work. Always enjoy your cultural insights :? Wo...

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

On that note, does anyone know why they didn't acquire the paving centre as part of this stage? There would have to be a valid reason given how tight that section is. Only thing I can think of is that they are perhaps looking to realign the road over the old Cadbury site opposite at some stage.

[U/C] Re: Currie/Rosina St | 115m | 32lvl | Sofitel

For me this development is actually the most attractive of the current bunch and far superior to Kodo in every aspect. - Better location (next to Leigh/Peel St precinct; closer to Rundle Mall; closer to the business district proper; closer to Riverbank etc etc) - Aesthetic - likely to be the best lo...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

The tram is a bit slow from Glenelg to South Tce, 26mins to cover 10km, in comparison the train from Brighton is 28min to cover 16km (all stops). The big problem is the 14mins the tram takes to get from South Tce to the train station. In comparison the bus takes 28mins to get to Rundle mall, the tr...

For a resi development this looks really slick. It is bizarre to think we have two sales offices open right now with models of buildings taller than Westpac. I just wish either this or Realm had a more unique silhouette to give the skyline a bit more variety, especially given they will both be aroun...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

can someone explain to me why most traffic light sequences do not give trams priority Good question. To which I would add: Why do trams travel so slowly in the reserved track from South Terrace to Brighton Road, compared to the normal tram speeds from the Entercentre to City West? If anything, one ...

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

If the motorway to the north of ANZAC Hwy is going to be trenched, then it's likely the Northern ramp of the underpass will need to be reworked. Assuming the motorway is also trenched to the South, this ramp would also need to be reworked. These reworked sections could be made wider, leaving only a...
