Re: (VIS) Hungry Jack's Carpark

From a built form POV, the big opportunity here is to rebuild with a 2-3 level frontage to Rundle St that is consistent with the rest of the street.

Re: (VIS) Hungry Jack's Carpark

Why would it be a Disneyland pastiche? Dresden rebuilt its city centre in the same architectural style as the original.....no pastiche criticism there......Berlin is (still) rebuilding the City Palace....the most controversial element of that rebuild....the "modern" section tacked onto the end (I t...

Looks better than what people are giving it credit for TBH. Also, how does this not fit into its surrounds? The vertical articulation is very much in keeping with 223 NT/Old johnny's car park for one.

In a couple of years time when the plants grow too big, how are they going to trim the plants back ??
With shears most likely.

Re: New City Arena

Thebby will always have its place for smaller acts or for larger acts that don't see enough reward after paying the higher venue costs for AEC. I don't think anyone here is suggesting that a single venue should replace it and the AEC in one, correct me if i'm wrong? Memorial Dr will make a great com...

Re: New City Arena

I actually don't mind this proposal in itself. I really don't like the $700m price tag. I'd still think it was expensive at half that. I think it costs what it costs. It's a classic case where the burden on tax payers for it is understandable because otherwise it's a trip interstate to see any half...

Re: New City Arena

Except Adelaide people really don't embrace trams, were apoplectic about the first extension to North terrace, and don't want them in their suburbs. They barely accept electric train overheads. Give them a sport/entertainment venue any day. The "Adelaide people won't use or embrace the trams what a...

Re: New City Arena

However, what I now really don't support is a big open railyard not being covered by this new stadium. My main support originally was the subversion and hiding of the railyard in keeping with the pattern presently of convention centres etc. I agree with this. On first glance, I didn't realise where...

Re: New City Arena

The 30,000 capacity boast is at best a white lie. Surely they are not saying that they can seat 30,000 at a basketball game - larger than any NBA venue and not even by a little bit. Probably includes people seated on the floor space for a concert. Or considering how full of it the Advertiser is, may...
