Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

Two concept plans for a potential upgrade of the SA Museum forecourt. Personally I'm not a fan of either concept as neither one addresses the shortage of exhibition space, however if I had to choose one I'd go for the second design that doesn't involve building a structure, why block out the heritag...

Re: New City Arena

Start an ambulance thread and tell someone who gives a shit. This is a construction forum. Those of us who actually live in this state have an interest in how OUR government spends OUR money. So if you don't like the discussion, take a hike, nobody gives a shit. ^ This. I hate the whole: "(You...

[VIS] Re: 154 Angas Street | ~53m | 15 lvls | Residential

Great. So we're going to see another sleepy retirement complex erected in the place of an existing thriving local Arts hub. Forget the fact that you have an empty parking lot on the opposite side of Angas Street (cnr Pulteney Street), and another parking lot and an empty building sitting on a large ...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Announced today, a $25m revamp of City X arcade. I think we all suspected this since Makris Group sold the arcade, and considering how tired the whole building looks. The plans look really good, however I'd have expected a mixed use/residential building above... Also, I don't understand why they've...

Looks good but I don't understand how anyone can think it's looking tired already when it's been massively upgraded so recently.
So recently? The completion of the last major upgrade was 16-years-ago...

Re: New City Arena

I want to see a new CBD arena, but I genuinely believe the only way for a new arena to gain on the current Entertainment Centre in terms of it's convenience and flow on into the local economy is for it to be at Memorial Drive. Where the Libs have proposed their arena is still very much out of the w...

Re: New City Arena

Artists are not the ones bypassing us. It is the promoters. The reason has nothing to do with venues. We have venues. The reason is money. They don't make money or struggle to make money here. It is what it is. This also applies to many of the music festivals we used to have, very little profit was...

[VIS] Re: Masonic Lodge | 160m | 39lvls | Mixed Use | NEW TALLEST

The Freemasons approved the project, i.e. their members elected to proceed with a proposal. Nothing lodged. Also the article says 33 storeys, so maybe got a chop. I hope not, I'm really hoping for it to stay at 160m. If so I'll be writing a Firery letter of disappointment to freemasons and to the p...

Can someone "accidentally" send one of the demo vehicles through the carpark, please?
Agreed. I would think that considering the mass excavation of this site that it wouldn't have been too much effort to burry a few thousand carparks below the new innovation hub and surrounding grounds.

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

I'd personally love to see the uniqueness of the parklands embraced by bringing samples of things from around the state into them. This is a great idea! The aboriginal art centre in Lot 14 could be incorporated into this too. Exactly. The way they seem to be planning to blend more seamlessly betwee...

Be glad not to see this building go up, dog shit design compared to its predecessor.
