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

There were 3 plane trees in this section. Are the 4-5 further up still there?

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

Specifically, why the hate for the Whitmore makeover? It was pretty run down before.

I'd love to see that Ted's building replaced. So out of place with the rest of the strip.

DPTI just posted on Facebook that landscaping has commenced for T2T and will include 800 trees and 50,000 plants. Artist's impressions:

Re: SA Economy

Sorry, I couldn't disagree with you more. Not if it's public money. Are you suggesting this type of thing should get kept secret from the public? I never said that. Transparency is one thing, but process is another. Mr Lucas should be negotiating an outcome with Nyrstar, not imprudently running his...

Re: SA Economy

Given the taxpayer dollars and Port Pirie livelihoods tied to Nyrstar, why on earth is Mr Lucas running a public commentary on its fortunes? I think he's forgotten he's in government now, and has to play the confidence game. Any issues with the government's loan guarantee should be negotiated discr...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I thought the Port Rd extension was the second phase of the original Coast to Coast Light Rail, which links Glenelg to Port Adelaide via Port Rd instead of replacing the rail line. That vision actually involved running a tram-train to Port Adelaide and Semaphore via the Outer Harbour line. But I do...

And part of the article that most will be interestedi n: Mr Jarman said Flagship was in discussions with Watpac around how to treat the building’s blank western wall, which rises over the adjacent Federal Court building. “At the minimum there’s some work that we can do around its continuity,” he sa...

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

It might need to be a combination of things but I do think there's an argument for intervening in the market to preference CBD development. It would mean providing greater housing choice where people want to live (millennials and boomers alike value location), encouraging more efficient use of infra...

Crane is being dismantled. I’m surprised we haven’t seen the next stage announced and released given the low amount of projects for sale in coming years and the success of this one. Tbh, I'm quietly worried that we'll see fewer apartments being built than we've enjoyed over the last couple years. T...

It seems the Mall has abandoned the live pines for plastic Christmas trees this year, as the decorations and string lights make their return for the upcoming Pageant and silly season.

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

anyone know their situation with the current SA admin buildings? I think the last I heard they (Labor) removed the State Admin Centre from the package but was still trying to sell the rest (Education Building, Torrens Building, Wakefield House and the vacant lots on that block). But I'm pretty sure...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

The Gawler Place building development would allow for either Zara or Uniqlo to take up shop. The only other options would be City Cross if that ever sells and gets the upgrade treatment, the Reject Shop building, or if Woolworth site if they ever decide to develop that site. Can’t say which one, bu...
