[CAN] Re: 322 KWS - Echelon | 114m | 2 x 31 Lvls | Mixed Use

Totally agree. Much of the area seems quite run down and inappropriate for 21st c bldgs in a major thoroughfare. Its sleek modern appearance befits such an area. Other new high rise will complement this soon enough - as further south. KWS I thought had allowance now for such height. Perhaps a scale ...

[ONH] Re: 261-263 Pulteney Street | 71m | 23 levels | Mixed Use

I like it so far - (using some imagination from the renders).Seems we are getting a number of relatively narrow - one pair of sides - rectanglar bldgs . Also seems we are developing a new ceiling from the old 18 levels to 30 floors in several new proposals, moving in a general SE direction. ADELAIDE...

Re: Interactive Map of Adelaide CBD Development

You have numbered 47 - a lot going on here - much more than I thought...and.... some big ones too. Much more spread out and not the spine than was to be. Looking forward to seeing some of this in action in Nov.

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Starbucks have no idea of good coffee nor have Gloria Jeans in my experience.(IMHO). In England it's like no-one has any idea except the Australian baristas. (found THREE in Bath in the UK - a city of 86000). Good coffee - made without bitterness from not cleaning coffee machines, right roasting tem...

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

Fantastic looking building. Sleek, imposing. It seems there are more and more 30+ proposals where once such bldgs were extremely rare and over a long time. The ones coming to mind are Kudo, this one, the one on Frome St, The Trims site and I believe one more on Pirie St. Vue seems to have been the i...

Re: U/C: Electrification & Upgrade of the Adelaide Rail Netw

Agree entirely with Nathan. Many stations seem here seem user unfriendly. Most of Brisbane's stations are manned with an office. (many with toilets). A number of the Pt line stations here are very poor - glorified bus stops being a complimentary phrase to use. Would be better to reduce number of sto...

[CAN] Re: 322 KWS - Echelon | ~115m | 2 x 31 Lvls | Mixed Use

Still confident this WILL eventuate. My current favorite of all proposals. KWS Sth should be developing an active population presence of it's own soon with a threshold not too far away that will attract many 'ancillary' street level people activities. (The resi pop. must be getting high there). BTW ...

I agree with Ben entirely. Looks like an uninviting monolith with street appeal and seems to be a relative of commie blocks - short on design and cheep impact. The proposal for the Trims site leaves this even worse by comparison. Colour OK. I do realize that it is opinion but leaves me unimpressed. ...

This is to be known as Echelon Apartments. Advertising has started i believe. Can't wait to see this start. Will be over in Adelaide later in the year - will have a good look and talk to relevant people in the process. The project has bulk but looks very sleek as well. Big impression in KWS Sth. Th...

[U/C] Re: 11-27 Frome Street | ~120m & 70m | 36 & 21 Levels

In reference to the superimposed photos a few posts ago, I wouldn't get too concerned about that isolated 'oversized' high rise look. Bris. is the same - with one VERY high round block each end about 45 floors each. Around them nothing much yet. It will fill in over time here as well as in Adelaide....
