[U/C] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

At some stage the Western Stand should rebuilt to a 3 tier stand same as Eastern Stand and when the NIMBY group has gotten too old to protest any longer maybe we can build a Northern Stand that matches the Southern Stand - this is probably the best we can achieve. It was the NIMBY SACA members that...

[U/C] Re: 203 North Terrace | 119m | 35 levels | Student Accom

It had been quite annoying, especially for buses travelling along North Terrace. Many end up being 10-15 minutes late from this bit alone. They should be using the tram lane while this is under construction. It's been more than 'quite annoying' for me. Every day I have to wait an extra 15 mins to g...

[PRO] Re: Barossa | Oscar Seppeltsfield | 12 Levels

Someone proposes something unique and that would become an iconic structure and major draw card, and they cry and scream they don't want it.

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

So glad this is all going ahead. In the least this will really lift the Port and bring more workings and people living in the area. Are the warehouse refurbishments and museums that were planned still to go ahead? They’d compliment the new housing nicely. Not sure if this is a discussion for the ec...

[CAN] Re: Hove Level Crossing Removal | $171m

Do personally think that it'll be road on-grade and rail underneath. Removing Hove and Warradale to merge into one station with better pedestrian/cyclist overpass. Plus trench it all the way till Brighton Station, as NTRabbit mentioned above. Maybe services only between Seaford-Brighton and Adelaid...

Re: NEW TALLEST | 11 Frome Street | 134m | 37 Levels |Mixed Use

Have a look at it on a per capita basis. Assuming Melbourne is 3 times bigger then Adelaide. 150 cranes in Melbourne divided by 3 equals 50 cranes. But we don't have 50 cranes here in Adelaide. We don't even have 20. As a city, we are in all sorts of trouble. Have a look at per capita basis. New Yo...

Don't think so. May be wrong though. I'm confused. Seems to me this is being built without a DA - Is that possible?
