[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

So I guess this means no basketball or netball in the city for a while, which is a real shame imo. Wonder if the design of this project allows for future expansion, hopefully. This is just a hack job to say they are doing something. Also looks like they are tearing down the north stand and rebuildi...

How come all these new buildings including Sofitel and Wingfold are oriented with bigger sides being those east / west facing. I understand it’s probably the land/plots but there seems to be a clear issues with energy efficiency.

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

Now that all the levels have been built, it doesn't look 117m tall at all. Its more closer to about 100-105m? The roofline of Westpac is 123m (antennae are 132m) and this certainly doesn't remotely appear to match the roofline of Westpac. Was there a variation to DA? The roof feature is still to co...

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

It would be nice to see a more panoramic view that shows the tower, perhaps from the riverbank footbridge, to see how it'll look against its surrounds. The full height shot that Walker doesn't really compare the tower to anything. Download and have a look at page 30/31 of the following which was po...

These types of developments are probably quite wise. It all appears a bit speculative at this moment given what is going on. But now is the time to build. Builders will be looking for working so should be good for developers. Whilst post COVID-19 i suspect people after being boxed up for a while wil...

Looking at how short fat and overwhelming for that area I’m not sold on this. I believe a thinner but taller building would have been better especially considering we will get the taller walker building there anyway.

Quite like this. Seems unlikely now though to happen for a while. Now would be ideal time to build - construction companies would be likely be fighting for work. By the time this one gets planned, approved, demolition, build & fitout we are talking about quite a while - COVID hopefully would be ove...

This must have a chance of being delayed or cancelled right now? With travel bans now in effect it might take years for international student numbers to recover. Whats your reasoning for that? Are you expecting current world issue to take that long or are you expecting a large number of those stude...

I would hate to think about how poor the sound proofing in this hotel would be - if your staying there you better have a damn lot of drinks so you can sleep it off.

Sofitel and Wingfold are starting to look very prominent from the Morphett Street bridge... https://i.imgur.com/mF1nglV.jpg The Sofitel is supposed to be 35 odd meters higher than Wingfold so i will really change the skyline in that area and i believe rightfully needed to balance the west end with ...

That side of the building is still incomplete. What’s the hold up with the glazing. I thought that many times too - but it looks like theirs air con units and other stuff - more like a carpark or something Maybe not supposed to be glass glazing but something else. Maybe their supplier for car park ...
