[PRO] Re: SWP: 399 King William Street | 48m | 15lvls | Apartments

Couldn't agree more with you, Shuz. Although perhaps their designs lacked glamour at least they were developing sites ... I certainly wouldn't comment on 379 KWS being a "beautiful" design but I do believe we can have a good blend of stock economically viable and visually stunning buildings and Tanc...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport

Just wondering if it is time to consider closing Currie/Grenfell sts to all but bus and taxis and create a transit zone. An exemption would also be required for deliveries to businesses along there, such as the Rundle Place loading dock. What about people like me whose only way out is Currie/Grenfe...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Parklands

The zoo struggles financially as it is, so I wouldn't be expecting them to expand for a very long time.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Parklands

I think they should move the Bio-Recycling centre elsewhere and allow the zoo to expand over the river.

Re: Adelaide Bashing - Strategies to Combat

But except for Sydney Tower maybe, would the general public mostly including people overseas really think about their dense skyline or their suburban skylines? We are talking about first thoughts :)
