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

Mostly because there's been LOTS of buildings built in the past 20 years. If you go before that in the 90's there was stuff all built... I can only think of the Myer Centre and the former EDS building. There's the Westpac tower too but that holds a special place due to it (unfortunately) being our ...

Everyone would have been frothing 5 years ago. Relax Sent from my SM-A217F using Tapatalk Yep, exactly. A few levels in and peeps getting all in a tizz! At least the developers are trying, for better or worse, to keep within the North Terrace memo... sandstone colour, without much glass. A case of ...

[PRO] Re: 1-25 South Esplanade, Glenelg | 46m | 13 Levels | Apartments

I'm sorry, but I didn't realise that Glenelg was no longer a metropolitan suburb? I'm not sure why it's so frowned upon by members of this forum that locals feel so inclined to oppose a development that not only (as stated) would destroy some stunningly grand 19th-century mansions but also just cont...

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

Behind the Innovation Centre, it has a 'Central Park' with what looks like potential for further development. I would love to see this portion of the site turned into a events amphitheatre, similar to Sidney Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne (although perhaps not quite as big). Would allow for regular ac...

[ Watpac and Marriot signage has gone up all around the site. Picture of fencing and signage around the site. There is also fencing blocking off Arbor Lane (next to Electra House) with same signage. It could be possible that they're undertaking restoration works and repurposing the building for the...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Anyone got on any tips on new tenants for City Cross? They've been doing seemingly substantial internal works in the tenancy next to the Rebel escalator. EB Games and Camera House have been vacant for a year now. Read recently that City Cross and North Adelaide Village have been sold to two interst...

I wish the angles on top were more severe to break up the boxy shape. But I like it.
Oddly enough, the further out of the city that you go, the more severe those angles are. At the base of the freeway, this looks really angular at the top!

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

If the ADL university redevelopment happens, north terrace will be quite the place for some great design. That seems unlikely, last year Adelaide Uni comprehensively shelved any infrastructure development for the next 5-10 years, aside from urgent maintenance. Was it shelved because of COVID or for...

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

I don't hate it but I stand by what I've always said, the below design featured in the Adelaide Contemporary design finalists still stands as the best design to have come from either proposal and could have very easily been worked into the design spec for this gallery. It was far more sympathetic to...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

Backpackers hostel on the corner of Wakefield and Pulteney Street(s) is up for sale, never thought COVID would bring about some positive change to the city. What's wrong with backpacker hostels? A city needs more than just 3 to 5 star hotels for tourism. Did I say anything about there being somethi...

Re: M1 South-Eastern Freeway

Resurfacing contracts for the section between Toll Gate and Crafers have been awarded. Expect onsite activity in the next 2-3 weeks. Thank God! You know it's bad when you can see vegetation growing through the road surface. Another point I forgot to include was building a third emergency arrester b...

Re: M1 South-Eastern Freeway

Yes, all completed, towards Mount Barker the speed limit is 100 and towards Adelaide the speed limit is 90. Hopefully they can continue the project between Crafers and Glen Osmond in the near future. Surely this would be next. It's been 20 years since it was built (feel so old) and now in need of a...

I think the headline for above article should've been......

I just hope that at a measly 15 levels it ends up as handsome as in the renders....
