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

Lots more info on the T2D website now ( https://dit.sa.gov.au/nsc/torrens_to_darlington ) and the accompanying project map ( https://storymaps.arcgis.com/collections/e0c94d6f449742af949ca6c04a33625f?item=2 ). Here are some renders from the map... Northern tunnel northern portal looking north. Note s...

[PRO] Re: New Womens and Childrens Hospital

There have been various discussions about this - the latest is a few pages back on either this thread or the metropolitan rail thread (can't remember which).

FFS, being critical is one thing, but they're mature trees being moved, leafdrop and/or removal of leaves is common.

Give it a year or two before critiquing the tree choice.

[PRO] Re: Hindmarsh Stadium Upgrade

No roof over all stands = pointless. The stands could easily have roofs, it was just easier to cut and paste the existing stands. Based on my Windows Paintbrush efforts above I suspect I don't have the skills to mock these up to anything other than a laughable standard. In terms of costs I just don...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

Honestly Marshall has done a pretty good job as Premier managing COVID and keeping the economy stable in a difficult time. I'm in no way a Liberal voter, or am I ever likely to be but I tend to agree that Marshall himself has at least appeared more capable than I expected. The caveat here is that t...

[U/C] Re: 269 North Terrace | 119m | 36 Levels | Student accommodation

I think this has turned out great, especially considering it is student accommodation. Plus for once the renders were pretty much spot on - I expected this to look much cheaper in real life but pleasingly that didn't eventuate. It is a shame they deleted the crown feature from the upper floor as per...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

If and when the city loop is built would potentially be a good time to introduce heritage services around the CBD. Not necessarily all the time - maybe restricted to weekends and school holidays for tourism purposes, which would presumably help avoid timetabling clashes at peak commuting times. The ...

[PRO] Re: New Womens and Childrens Hospital

Despite what various parties have tried very hard to imply, the olive groves which front on to Bonython Park and are currently used for police horses aren't being touched. The 'olive grove' that's earmarked for the car park is a patch of open land by the jail which as far as I can tell doesn't have ...

If its overseas investors then its just more evidence that supports my claim; there's demand for high-rise developments from overseas. :lol:
And if true, may result in low occupancy rates and a reduced level of activation of the surrounding area. Not necessarily a great outcome for the city.

How big does it need to be? This is not even close to the southern boundary and already there's significant scope for expansion of the stands (excuse the crudeness btw).

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

Go read my post of images on the reason why. No one wants to move into the aging and disgusting concrete block buildings of the CBD, that's why we have low rates. New and quality office blocks is what we need. As per my last post, where are you expecting the new tenants to come from to fill these n...

Makes the Crowne next door look unfinished with it's bare concrete floor plates.
Yeah, painting the exposed concrete white would really brighten that place up. The renders seemed to suggest it would be so it was disappointing when it didn't get done.
