[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

I still can't work out why the can't take out the properties on other side opposite the Brickworks. They aren't of any heritage value ie a tyre shop, warehouses/office buildings, a few villas and even the West Thebarton Hotel. To lose an almost new Community centre plus a bowls club which has had a ...

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

A mild attempt at sarcasm but like Burnside we were all hoping things would improve (then cue these sad looking trees) but actually kept getting worse… but hey, I agree, let’s hold out for hope til the very end.

Yes that reminds me exactly what they said about the tree inside Burnside village!

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Not sure how Adelaide can be a fuel stop if flight is only coming from Melbourne?

Unbelievable.. this is getting beyond a joke now.
Maybe the architects brief was for trees that never drop leaves. So they said, ok here you go.

[PRO] Re: Hindmarsh Stadium Upgrade

I am curious to see the crowds and support this season for the A-league with no Foxtel and subscription needed with Paramount Plus [ch. 10 is doing one free to air game a week] to view it. Considering the season start is only a few weeks away, I have not seen much media reporting or publicity as pre...

Re: New City Arena

I know it’s not a question of choosing one or the other. That’s what I am saying, if the Libs just fixed both issues they then couldn’t be criticised by Labor about overlooking health.

Re: New City Arena

Not sure why the Libs don’t just propose to build a new stadium and fix the health system. Surely it’s possible to try to do both financially?

[APP] Re: 88 O'Connell Street | 63m | 13, 13 and 15 Levels | Mixed Use

The real issue was the preferred outcome was a train underpass which was costed at a massive $450m [vs an overpass at $290m]. The original budget was $171m [ie. So a $120m blow out if an overpass and a $280m blowout if an underpass] which the Federal Govt wasn't willing to contribute to, therefore t...

Re: Riverlea (Buckland Park) | 12,000 dwellings | $3b

Hopefully these traffic lights are an interim measure and an overpass gets built in the [near] future. However very frustrating considering the billions we have/are spending along the route. Possibly they are waiting for the suburb to achieve critical mass and/or after the State Govt has made enough...

Re: Adelaide Oval Expansion

Someone suggested on radio [to keep everyone happy], they just need to build a hill and relocate the scoreboard on TOP of any new Northern grandstand.

[PRO] Re: New Womens and Childrens Hospital

Maybe they could re-plant the olive grove on the roof top or around the new W&C or even move it to the new Urrbrae Gatehouse location. Then they could heritage list it and release a limited edition extra olive oil from it every year to pay for it..

[APP] Re: 88 O'Connell Street | 63m | 13, 13 and 15 Levels | Mixed Use

I think the last approval was 57m high [the Sheraton Hotel etc] and I don't remember any court action threatened/taken over that. I know a sales display was to be built/opened soon, so I wonder if this will stop the developer attempting off the plan sales until this is resolved [even though they do ...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

While I understand/agree with the points mentioned, MONA has been funded/owned by an extremely wealthy individual [some $300m+ spent years ago, so maybe equivalent to $1b today]. Maybe the discussion should be if our Govt should go out and buy/compete for [with taxpayers money] quality Art where jus...
