[VIS] Re: Central Market

I'm very happy with this. Two of my absolute musts have been met: 24/7 access between Grote and Gouger, and the reinstatement of the brick arch motif. I'm neither here nor there on the tower elements. It's a nice design, but it would suit the location better if the Hilton site were also being redeve...

[VIS] Re: Central Market

"Last month, ACMA chair Nick Begakis told a council committee meeting the market would require extra financial assistance from the council during construction. He said 260 fewer car parks would be available for customers during that period." Sure, 260 fewer car parks out of how many in the surround...

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

Can we please cut this short and just 'agree to disagree'? It's honestly so inane to read pages and pages of this debate over and over again. Either that, or maybe set up a permanent thread for y'all to argue the issue whenever the urge boils over.

Re: SA Economy

We should be greening the desert like the Israelis. We have plenty of sun to generate energy and water to desalinate...FFS! Is that a good suggestion? Cheers We're not at the stage of needing to desalinate water for irrigation, but it's worth noting that the Northern Adelaide Irrigation Scheme is f...

I’m sorry, did that article say they reduced clearway times? How is that helping travel times?

Currie Street is really in need of a refurbishment with the proposal of 80 Currie Street, Sofitel, QT and 75-79 KWS.
Along with Grenfell St. Not only are the smack in the middle of the business district they’re also the chief public transport corridor — they deserve better.

[U/C] Re: 11 Frome Street | 135m | 37 Levels | Crowne Plaza / Adelaidean | New tallest

With both Adelaidean and Realm topping out recently, I snapped these shots from the good ol' North Adelaide car park a few days ago. I have a feeling that Realm will have a much nicer top floor and roof area, when viewed from a distance, because the Adelaidean seems to have turned out a little disa...

Currie Street is woefully underdeveloped so it's good to see it finally attracting attention. I have no comment on the design until further information is available (particularly what treatment the eastern boundary will receive).

Good riddance! Most of you know how protective I am of heritage and preserving existing facades etc rather than replacing character with shit, but I've hated the building on this site for years, glad to see it go. ???

Hang on... same design or is this being resubmitted ?
Do you mean Makris's design? Definitely not. The only other designs we've seen were concepts not part of an official bid. So this will be something completely new.

Can't say I'm rooting for this one to go up.

Any word on whether the proposed changes were let through?
