[SWP] Re: SAHMRI Stage 2

I do like the design of this one, but I hate how close it sits to the current SAHMRI, seems like this can only ruin the standout-ness of that building.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

I've always been curious about the idea of reopening the Northfield Line and extending it to Golden Grove/Athelstone instead of extending the O'Bahn, obviously far more expensive but it would keep a lot of buses off the roads and do a lot in the way of moving large volumes of people.

[PRO] Re: 51 Pirie Street | 93m | 21 Levels | Hyatt

I think you'll find this was proposal no. 1, came in around 73m if I recall rightly. The best design of the lot, firstly because it considered the heritage facade, and secondly for modern design merits. Even a decade later it's still better than all of the proposals that have come since.

Is all the construction at the airport finished now, or is it still happening?
Well and truly still happening, won't be finished until the end of next year.

[U/C] Re: 104-106 Currie Street | 117m | 33lvl | Sofitel Hotel

For me this just highlights what a dog's dinner The Adelaidean is. Yes. But also, I'm a little disappointed with what we have seen so far with this, the materials used are of a great quality but one this building leaves the podium, it's much of the same which for its considerable height (by Adelaid...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

One road is in Adelaide and one road is in Sydney both of them are roughly the same width. Looking at the Sydney example they have managed to fit a bus lane (meaning that buses are not in a traffic jam). If we followed this example on many of Adelaide's main roads as possible that will surely get t...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

Love the paintwork on the buildings, but the landscaping looks so cold and soulless... Compared to the other end of North Terrace where there are elements of timber, stone, varying colour, lots of planting. This however reminds me a lot of Rundle Mall, and not in a good way.

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

Anyone advocating replacing rail.. light or heavy with Obahn style buses, I would strongly recommend you stand near the Obahn track in the linear park near StPeters. 1. The noise of a high revving diesel bus trying to maintain 80kph is very unpleasant. 2. Add to that the "roar" of rubber on concret...

Re: University of South Australia | Developments & News

What happened to the further expansion/developments that UniSA had planned between their Jeffrey Smart building/Pridham Hall and Currie Street (currently the bus stopover point)? Regardless, glad to see this happening, there’s a lot of development potential around the West of the city, and in some c...
