[APP] Re: 203 North Terrace | ~115m | 35 levels | Student Accom

So sad to see this monstrosity go ahead. Truly hope I’ll be eating my words. It's an appalling design. I'm as supportive of CBD highrise as anyone, but this one definitely should have been rejected by SCAP to save the developer from themselves. Our only hope is that, like other developments, the en...

Re: News & Developments: Prospect

Looks like a decent building with good finishes. More of this please! It will definitely have more street activation than the current tenant, Blackwell Funerals. Hopefully this kind of stuff progresses north along Prospect Road; on opposite of the side of the side street this will corner on is most...

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

I'm at 10-15 minute walking distance from this. I think it is a piece of shite. All it does is it gets a few more vehicles across the intersection on a cycle of lights and then the congestion starts again. Band aid solution (perhaps not even that). Cheers Not to mention, the worst part of this inte...

2/5/2020, Glazing nearly complete on east side. Please click on picture for bigger.
I'm at a loss trying to figure out why Samaras would use such quality glazing on this building meanwhile using such shit glazing on Adelaide's new tallest building?

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

Everything around parliament except government house and the train station building is out of place compared. Is someone going to seriously say the Intercontinental fits in? Or the new casino extension? Or the festival theater? Oe the crap across the road? How about the riverside centre? The out of...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Keep the Grange line, and do the West Lakes extension too. Enough rail has been closed over the years and buses are not an adequate substitute to encourage people to use more public transport - if anything they do the opposite. Any government serious about building a public transport system for the...

Re: VIS? New SA Pathology HQ, 14,000sqm

Wasn't the proposed office building for the Heaven/HQ site roughly 14,000sqm? Kind of makes sense considering it has been decided the W&C Hospital will be next-door to the RAH and not opposite. Was there an office proposal, I only remember that Twin residential tower plan http://www.sensational-ade...

Re: VIS? New SA Pathology HQ, 14,000sqm

Great news. Also funny how quickly the Government’s privatisation agenda for them stopped when they proved how essential they are in recent times :lol: just too much political headache and paperwork for the gain that would come out of it.... Now where do they find 14,000 sqm for space close to the ...

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

I think this is one of the projects the public would like to see money spent on and have it done right. This is Adelaide's prime public location that's meant to stand up with the river precinct in Melbourne and Circular Key in Sydney (on a smaller scale of course). Negative attitudes, and doing che...

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

Goes to show how flawed the whole Riverside precinct was from the get go. They still haven't resolved the flow of the area, the fact that there are still stairs required to access certain parts of this who strip, when before all these newer buildings were in place the area was relatively flat. These...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

I once read speculation of Ryan Air coming here... but not sure how they are travelling. Is there any other airline/s that are strong enough/not as affected that could look at coming to Australia? Btw, do you think that Virgin refunds, pre-paid tickets & velocity/frequent flyer points will all be l...

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

And right here, we have the reason that public consultation exists. This is a decision made by a few hundred bureaucrat in the interests of this state and yet most people in this state stand to benefit nothing from this whole proposal; worse yet, when if it's proven to be a dud, the government can't...

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

So let me get this straight... Walker has pretty much wiggled his way out of paying for the plaza and is now only covering costs for the office tower and the adjoining cafe-restaurant building? So why are the government letting him build on public land when there isn't really anything from his contr...
