The texture of the concrete would beat painted surface hands down, hopefully they don't.

[APP] Re: Former LeCornu Redevelopment | Mixed Use

If the site's too small to fit a swimming pool, the star studded lineup of the adelaide city council can propose a pool there too :lol:

Or maybe half a pool here, half a pool on franklin st. When you swim to the end you can leap like a salmon to the next pool.

[U/C] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

BTW, the cricketers will not be staying in the hotel. Health SA didn't approve it and for obvious reasons - the players had free reign over the place and the hotel couldn't be locked down or even cordoned off efficiently so it wasn't even close to suitable. Not a knock on the hotel though, it was ne...

Thanks for letting me know about the photos claybro! I’m part of a similar group for my hometown in the U.K. and the photos posted there help me keep in touch with the place, so I try to do the same here in Adelaide for people who might be living away like yourself. Really appreciate your work also...

The second design is inferior but still not bad. Simple and elegant. Plenty of other designs try harder and look like shite.

What are the metal structures being installed at the upper level? That’s a great photo! Awesome to see things from this vantage point and the proximity to the pool next door. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I'm not seeing the 'infinitiy pool' that they've been promoting. Something else half arse...

Australia's first 'legal' casino was in Hobart in '73. Darwin got theirs in '79. Melbourne got Crown in '94. Don't know about the rest. Fun fact - never been in one.

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

Also as alluded to earlier, the last time a stadium had moving parts they couldn't even lift a bunch of lightbulbs. But hey, let's go for a 120m * 70m football pitch :lol: Tottenham has just built a brand new slide in / slide out pitch. It's made of three 30x100m segments and weighs just under 10,0...

Worth revisiting the funding issue regarding this tower. The state government for some inexplicable reason, offered favourable loan arrangements to get this over the line.

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

I don’t think the event clashes issue is as bad as what others have been saying. A League, NBL, and Super Netball are all predominantly weekend games over the summer months. The Adelaide International Tennis tournament is over an entire week in January. The intention is to get bigger ATP/WTA tennis...
