I like it, unfortunately everything is gonna look conservative after seeing the render for the currie st development. anyhow this will beef up that part of the city. good luck to the developers trying to fill it up. adelaide is going to be satyurated with offic space

Probably a bit late tyo suggest this now but adelaide's answer to times square i think would probably be better at the other end of the mall where hindley st meets king william street. king william st could be similar to swanston st in melbourne which is blocked off to all traffic except local traff...
