Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

If something good came out of last months Hindley Street fire it is that the fronting Polites building (former Tilt building) had had its terrible blue cladding removed from its frontage - actually a nice looking building behind all that (with a fresh lick of paint to boot) http://i.imgur.com/DdCIu...

I think you will find that price is for the outbound leg (e.g. Adelaide > Rome) only. With both the outbound and inbound legs selected, the return price is around the $2,000.00 mark. :)

Can someone clarify what they are building in this stage? Is this the turquoise coloured eastern building or something else? I haven't been following this project and notice that the thread title implies that it is complete. http://resources1.news.com.au/images/2013/04/09/1226615/815321-adelaide-co...

Re: Where is Burger King?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hungry_Jack's The Burger King name was already trademarked and operating in Adelaide when they tried to move into Australia. Does anyone know where this Burger King is?

[COM] Re: Adelaide Convention Centre | $350m

I hope I am not alone, but I like the variance between the different stages. A uniform design would have - in my opinion, at least - looked overbearing for such a small area. My only complaint is that we didn't stick with this design for the latest stage. It was far more imposing, far more vibrant, ...

As of Aug 2015 all wheat will transported by road to Tailem Bend then reloaded and railed to Port Adelaide. How can this be more efficient? GW then expects the loc...
