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

City Deal go-ahead to transform old RAH as Space Agency announced DECEMBER 11, 2018, AdelaideNow Adelaide will get a City Deal, which w...

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

I can't spot many visual changes apart from the deletion of balconies for the hotel levels 11-20. I don't much mind the loss of balconies as I think it gives it a cleaner vertical expression. The plans indicate full floor glazing across those levels, though the grey panels in the daytime renders are...

Both SANFL and (especially) SACA have had large debts forgiven by state governments in the past, so I think people have reason to be cynical that this money will ever be fully paid back by SMA.

[VIS] Re: New Womens and Childrens Hospital

Given there isn’t yet an idea of total beds or cost, we can safely assume this is just a mock up. We’re a while away from a final design.

I was kind of rooting for the Newmarket location so that the activity this will bring is closer to the West End.

Re: Auckland car-free zone trial

Auckland's rail investment's have changed their city centre. We need to follow their lead and start working toward an underground rail link by 2030. Tram extensions to North Adelaide, Norwood and Henley should be underway now, to form the basis/spokes for an aboveground city loop. And the state gove...

I agree also, and when looking at that picture you really get a feel for how boring both designs are which begs the question, why are are the DAC not pushing for more striking designs in their processes. Because their role is only to approve what the development plan requires. We need to update tha...

[CAN] Re: New Courts Precinct | $500m

I hope so. To have large vacant blocks of land in the middle of a capital city is a bit embarrassing especially since its on the main street. Just to be clear the vacant lot on King William Street is remaining vacant. They’re just using it as a site office for renovation and extension works to the ...

[PRO] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

Ignoring the merits of the proposal for now, I will say the design of the hotel subtracts something from the elegance of the eastern stand. It adds a great deal of bulk, that I think could be somewhat addressed by making its roof a green roof (recalling the vines of the old western stand) or a publi...

[PRO] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

I'm not opposed but can't say I'm enthusaistic. Mainly I question: 1) why? 2) if for profit, will they now make stadium food and drink affordable? 3) geez, these will wanna be heavily sound-proofed 4) is this a security risk? I'm not aware of any major stadiums that have done this, and maybe there's...

Would prefer not to say how I know, but the next stage of this project/site looks like it will be on the Franklin Street side as opposed to the North of the taller West Franklin tower. Very early stages, but concept image shows approx 6 storey resi along Franklin Street, and then on the corner of F...

The office tower has approval.
Design is progressing to IFC now. It will be built.
Basement retention piling and excavation will commence in Jan.
Are these works being completed as part of the carpark (ie, of necessity) or as first stage for the building?

It still irks me that they're not cladding the core, as per their last re-design.
Wouldn't they have to file an amendment to skip this cladding? Did we miss it? I agree it's really poor form.

My money is on this building never going ahead. There's been rumours going around for at least 3 years now and frankly I am tired of it. Here in Adelaide we're excited about a couple of 130 metre building going up in the city, meanwhile in Perth they're building a 150 metre building on the coastlin...

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

Didn't someone once say here that SGIC was overflowed from their new headquarters? Although 'new' would be 12-13 years old by the time this is likely to be finished, so they could be contenders.
