[SWP] Re: [SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

I'm not an arborist, but I'd wager not a chance. They already appear to be under significant stress and at the end of their life span. I thought an arborist has said these trees are healthy and will live to at least 2039. A council report 'expects' them to have a lifespan until 2039 (which would be...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

Would these elms likely survive if dug out & transplanted elsewhere? Similar to what they do with date palms but I accept their root systems are very different. I also remember there was talk of a transplant for a historic Cork tree as part of the Norwood Coles re-development. I'm not an arborist, ...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

It's unfortunate but these elms and the ones in Prince Albert Garden (in front of Government House) all appear to be verging senescence. I'm not sure they'd survive too many more of our increasingly hot summers. If there's a chance they'll need replacing within 10 years, I think it's fair for them t...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Looks like the large unit at the station entrance ramp, previously used as one large second hand goods store, is now being turned into some smaller individual units. Anyone know anything? Only that Renewal SA has been seeking expressions of interest for retail operators to overhaul the Railway Stat...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

Someone mentioned hearing on the radio about researchers working out a new algorithm to figure out origin/destination data from our metro card. The ABC has done a write up on the study and the government's intentions. Basically more buses, more park-and-rides (and likely thereby more congestion): h...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Walker responsible for developing the tower, car park and retail and the government responsible for the open plaza areas? Could the landscaping in the new tower/retail render just be generic, even though in the past the render has included the plaza designs we've ...

[VIS] Re: Central Market

The desired look and feel and amenity of the market (including a hospitality school) are all agreeably expressed in the district plan and development principles . Whether they're achieved, we'll have to wait and see a little bit longer. The council is slipping timelines both here and 88 O'Connell (o...

Weird. Time out bench? I believe that bench is there as a requirement, a place for the elderly folks to rest while they hike up and down the long ramps to get between the ground and platform levels. :lol: They didn't have to face it to the wall, as though you're there to think about how naughty you...

[U/C] Re: [U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

I have to agree with you about Federation Square. I don't see what the fuss is about, it's not really a usable space; there was a cool ampitheatre-like section but its shoved away in the corner away from anything. The Festival centre used to have an outdoor amphitheatre too. "Progress" apparently m...

Design competitions should be mandatory for public land. The trade off for losing open space ought to be exceptional design.
