Just had a thought. I feel the space in front of the Intercontinental can be better used.

How about we extend and continue the facade of Adelaide Railway Station west?
That would look atrocious, not least of all because there will be a clear discrepancy in material look.
But you would also be cutting off access to a major hotel from a main road.

That’s not necessarily a bad thing rev. Build an overpass or underpass crossing the rail to access the hotel and she’ll be as happy as Aunt Norah on New Years Eve.

If the parklands are so important why dont they put it to a vote state wide? Or are they afraid the majority will back this hotel..

It is when the building you are trying to replicate is from a bygone era. It wont look as tacky and cheap as what some other cities do, but it wont look good(imho).

Agreed, if it was demolished it to build the Continental and rebuilding it was on the table I wouldn't have a problem, or if a long station building was in the original plans like the dome ontop of Parliament house
