Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

I was sort of hopeful to see a residential redevelopment there but that would be unlikely under current circumstances. Renewing it as an employment hub is still a very good outcome. I hope they're successful in attracting enough tenants to fill a very large space.

There's absolutely no way unrelated property people would know about defence contracts without a significant security breach.

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

It wouldn't be the first time a landowner lodged a speculative development proposal in an attempt to increase the value of their holding.

Some old signage has been uncovered on the Balfours building on Rundle Mall:

I hope the old Balfours insignia that used to sit in that glass oval is protected somewhere.

[CAN] Re: 1-8 North Terrace | 82m | 2 x 24 Levels | Apartments

You can see why it was un-approved by looking at the renders and the site. Look at the satellite image, it was only being built on the old HQ club, not the carpark or the grey fitness building. Mr Carpark must have ideas for his land, maybe he also owns the fitness building and has plans for apartm...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

Wasn't sure where to ask the question so will put it here. Are the windows on the Myer Centre that face north and north west real windows? I was looking up at them on the weekend and it occurred to me there's no windows inside Myer. Mostly, yes. Goldsbrough and Shell House actually still have leasa...

[U/C] Re: 104-106 Currie Street | 117m | 33lvl | Sofitel Hotel

Worth revisiting the funding issue regarding this tower. The state government for some inexplicable reason, offered favourable loan arrangements to get this over the line. The project is not yet completed and we are in the midst of a global crisis that will have a lasting impact on international tr...

I hope the concrete will be treated like Kodo's west face eventually.

Is there a potential third stage to this site's development or am I imagining?

[U/C] Re: SkyCity Adelaide Casino Expansion | 55m | 12 Levels | Hotel

Correct me if I’m wrong, but it looks like from Andy’s pic at least they’ve got the water feature running again and fixed up the stairs? Can anyone who has been past recently confirm? Cheers. It's been a couple weeks since I was down there, and though they may have tidied up a bit and done some pla...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

New "The Big Grill" on the north east corner of Topham Mall and Waymouth Street looks like finishing touches being added. Seems to be a large convenience store with a grill/takeaway and coffee/bakery. Will be open 24/7 so will add some more life to this area. The convenience store between CIBO and ...

Good news that the Queen's Theatre, one of my favourite Adelaide buildings, will finally be revamped in order for it to become a functioning modern arts venue: https://indaily.com.au/news/local/2020/ ... -revamped/

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

My vote is still for a separate arena (preferably Memorial Drive, but location agnostic). Rectangle sports stadium can be addressed at a later date.

If we're talking strategic planning, then consolidating all venues into one that is fit-for-purpose for none is not the right approach.

The fire above Boost was back in February and this lovely old building is still not looking great.

Yeah, I've been wondering about this one. Maybe insurance issues?

When did they go back to Skycity from Adelaide Casino? I thought they'd dropped the branding.

Also, really hope the Intercon is planning to do something to better orient itself toward the riverbank (and redevelop its dead forecourt).
