Re: The SA Politics Thread

The Libs have created exemptions for the residential foreign investor tax so that developers of projects with 20+ allotments can get a waiver. Hopefully it will see some more city developments get across the line:

[APP] Re: 69-71 Light Square | ~55m | 14lvls | Residential

It would appear the entire look, feel and promise of this development has changed from its original proposal and yet I can find no new renders and DAC have been content to approve the variations rather than force a new application. Doesn't feel like a proper process.

[APP] Re: 69-71 Light Square | ~55m | 14lvls | Residential

Was curious what this will look like now and noticed this amendment from April last year that we appear to have missed. The prospects are not great: Variations include - changes to heritage entrance (main entrance), facade cladding changed to painted CFC sheet, painted precast to low & unfinished pr...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

They should get cracking. It'd be ideal to have a list of projects ready to go before the federal election campaign for the government and opposition to throw cash at.

The building steps back quite a bit above the podium/rec level, so the opposite apartments won't be so close.

[APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

In terms of design, the only thing I don't like is the lobby pod. I don't think it's been as sufficiently resolved with the existing building as the rest of the hotel. I also wish they planned a green roof or wall to evoke the vines of yesteryear's oval. But on the whole, it doesn't very much add t...

Re: News & Discussion : New Restaurants, Bars & Night Clubs

Really pleased they resolved that section of Brunelli's. It was always a bugger to walk through on a busy day. That said, the fake greenery on the outdoor tables can go in the bin...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Ban Ban, if it’s the same as Franklin Street, has had a great deal of hype and the restaurant has been busy since opening. I've been very keen to try Ban Ban, but the serving size/pricing on the chicken pretty much requires you to go as a group of four or more. If this new outlet caters for weekday...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Soonta is pretty prolific around Adelaide, with plenty of customers. I don’t know if they’ll gain any extras though, as it’s in pretty much the same catchment as Rundle Place and will probably mostly shift those who prefer the view. Ban Ban, if it’s the same as Franklin Street, has had a great deal ...

So just to be clear, there is still going to be at least one more tower facing Franklin St but a tower on the Morphett St & Franklin St corner looks unlikely (if it is community open space)?
Correct. And there’ll eventually be another building on Elizabeth St past West Franklin too.

Are you sure that’s a new proposal? The failed urban construct proposal for this site was called the loft on Franklin. Yeah, it's a new design though I also thought it was odd that they were calling it the same thing. From memory, the Urban Construct proposal was a 7 level version of Gallery apartm...

[U/C] Re: West Franklin | 54m & 64m | 17 & 20 lvls | Apartments

Sorry btw for the low-res but these are copies of low quality print. As far as the design goes, the tower is either interesting or messy. It's 13 storey / 52 metres with an unknown number of residences but at least one commercial level. I think it would be acceptable to lose the open space as Light ...

Posting here because it's not officially proposed yet, but the next stage of this precinct has hit a potential road block. The developer Greaton wants to build above the old Balfours brick façade whereas the community plan requires it to be retained as public open space. I believe a motion to amend ...
