It has to say something about the Advertiser's employee demographic that for the mockup of a building to potentially be built 2019> they choose one that was made in the early 90s.
Says something about the average Advertiser reader that one guy in the talkback said Adelaide can't have tall buildings because of earthquakes
While it is true that Adelaide is susceptible to earthquakes, that doesn't give any justification for the city to ban skyscrapers from being developed.

The particular part of the 'Indo-Australian' plate that Adelaide sits on is subject to tectonic stress release every so often.

This results in earthquakes usually under magnitude 5.

The largest in modern history was a 5.5 in 1954.

No one died and hardly any damage occurred in the CBD - just a damaged town hall clock and a statue.

Both San Francisco and LA exist next to the San Andreas Fault Line - they are due to get an 7.8+ earthquake.. and both have recently built super-talls of 300m+ with technology that will help those towers to survive such an event.

If those cities can built towers of that size in a FAR more dangerous region, I think Adelaide has no issues.

I got excited seeing this thread bumped, thank you for the disappointment. :lol:

Wonder if we'll ever see what this plan was, seems safe to assume it's very dead at this point.
