[COM] Re: Renaissance Arcade | 132m | 40 Levels | Realm Apartments

Here's the view from a north-facing three-bedroom: image.jpg There are two things in this building's external appearance I hope will be finessed: firstly, the crown needs to be completed in-the-round; and, secondly, I hope the underside/ceiling of the balconies are smoothed (or painted). Otherwise,...

A significant economic boost to any city involved, in immediate $$$ and international exposure on TV for future touri...

Re: Magill/Portrush Road Intersection Upgrade | $98m

A tunnel from north of Magill Road intersection to south of Greenhill Road intersection would work better But that is a massively expensive tunnel that is not at all close to the budget for this project. This gets a few driveways off a major road that should have never had driveways on it to begin ...

[COM] Re: M2 Northern Connector | 15.5km | $867m

also noticed, maybe been mentioned already, that heading south if you wanna turn left at port expressway, and head towards port wakefield/salisbury highway, there is no way to do it, there is simply no way to turn left to go back up into salisbury haha Probably not worth the cost of building that e...

Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

As a migrant who has chosen to make Adelaide my home, I would say that many in Adelaide don't appreciate just what an amazing place this is to live. Yes there are challenges here, and a small vision mentality in the media and government that holds progress back. It is interesting to note that the ec...

[APP] Re: Which was Adelaides most significant decade for Infrastructure development

In terms of difference in the CBD, a tie between the 70's and 80's. In terms of impact to the suburbs, definitely the last 10. Unless you're talking purely about height, the 2010s saw more 40m+ highrises completed than any other decade. Numbers are something like this (including buildings outside t...

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

[*]I struggle to see what the retail/commerce building contributes to the plaza over & above what's already in the area (there's a bunch of restaurants at the casino or promenade already). I'd guess the idea is to try and get something similar to South Bank, where you have so many bars and restaura...

^^^ i'd be happy if they just painted the lift cores at the IC
Clad the life cores, paint the remainder of the building. Something darker.
Some kind of LED lighting display would look great. Won't happen.
Careful what you wish for, the Adelaideans ain't exactly thrilling.

At some point, SA's gonna have to face up to its whacky electoral geography and introduce proportional representation for the lower house (preferably in the method of Tas or NZ).
I would love to see that happen.
