[COM] Re: 89-109 Gray Street | 59m | 17 Levels | Student Accom

That's not what they're opposing. It's the noise concerns. Look what happened to the Austral Hotel when Bent Street apartment residents complained about the noise, despite the pub having been there for 150 years. They had to build a soundproof room and reduce the number of live music gigs because o...

Big fan of this one.
Love how it looks like it doesn't belong in Adelaide!

Can't wait to see it go up.

Re: News & Developments: Prospect

i went for a walk today and was surprised to see a lightweight hammerhead crane installed at one of the low rise apartments going up around Churchill Road. On Allan Street. I'll upload a photo tomorrow. Am assuming that because of access on this road, they were forced to use a permanent crane for th...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

An interesting article in the Sydney Morning Herald about why the CBD light rail project has gone wrong ( https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw/how-did-gladys-make-such-heavy-work-of-light-rail-20180629-p4zohz.html ). One quote caught my eye: Faruqi, who has a doctorate in engineering, has argued ext...

Re: #Official Defence Thread

Am so glad that capability won.
These will be the most capable ships in the RAN - and extremely effective ASW frigates.
Funny that subs and ASW frigates will be built next to each other - basically designed to destroy each other.

My feeling is that the Contemporary has greater pubic support outside the herp derp of AdelaideNow comments who equate anything to do with art as some champagne sipping elitist thing.
Am really worried about that pubic support.

Re: U/C: Electrification & Upgrade of the Adelaide Rail Network

Dudley Park is an interesting station. Yes it is in the middle of backstreet suburbia. But just remember that this whole area (Churchill Road) has been rezoned as ‘Urban Corridor’ and it’s main selling point is that it’s close to public transport. You take this station away and it defeats the purpos...
