Re: Crane Counter: CBD 9 | Metro 4| Total 13

Maybe it will be used on the car park?
There's been a crane base there for weeks
It's almost three years since that project began

[PRO] Re: 124-126 Franklin Street | 87m | 26 Lvls | Hotel

Hmmm doesn't look too flash
I reckon I could design a better building but obviously budget hotel equals budget design
Near bus station and hostels
Good opportunity to rejuvenate the area lost

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

I don't mind the attacks, I think they only strengthen what I am saying. When an argument is weak and lacking facts it is typical to resort to attacking the man instead of the subject. Posts that lack simple presentation skills such as punctuation also assist the opposite side. Just to prove you're...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

Given that Citywatcher was complaining about how the parklands aren't of a good enough quality a couple of days ago and is complaining about people caring too much about them today I suspect they may actually be multiple personalities. I was stating that parts of the parklands are rubbish. Is that ...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

The council didn't ask for a swimming centre to be built, The Crows said they would build a swimming centre. There is no tender or specs because there is no request for anyone to tender. It is 100% on The Crows to show what they are proposing. The council can then go to the community and ask if the...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

The Crows are the ones that proposed they want to build on the site. The ACC didn't contact The Crows saying "we need you to build us a new swimming center". It is for The Crows to show what they propose. And they have shown that. They are offering 2 basic pools in a smaller facility. You are foami...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

I at no point have suggested the parklands should be natural fields. They should be public space that offer South Australians things that the typically market driven private businesses could not offer. It is not just roads for normal business, we already have those roads. I am no purest and fully b...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

Elizabeth and Marion are indoors also. It is laughable to suggest Adelaide, Prospect, Walkerville and Charles Sturt can not afford a joint facility. What I see is Adelaide getting annoyed it is propping up freeloading neighbouring councils. And then The Crows decided they wanted super cheap premium...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

It is difficult to read your post due to lack of punctuation and incoherent ramblings but I think I get the gist. ACC maintain the current site currently. I don't recall ever seeing ACC suggest they have no interest in a public pool. If they had no interest in a public pool they would have closed t...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

Can you point me to the spots which are bad? I think the biggest problem with the parklands is people's view of them. Botanic Garden, Botanic Park, Veale Gardens, Himeji Garden, Rymill Park, Rundle Park, Adelaide Zoo, Clover Playground, West Terrace Cemetery, Adelaide High School, Adelaide Oval, Bo...

[SWP] Re: [SWP] Re: 269 North Terrace | 118m | 36 Levels | Student accommodation

I think there's been too much bitching about this development. Let's wait until the first levels are built and the cladding and glazing are up. Besides we should be worried more about filling these buildings with students or else they'll be failures. Unless of course they can be converted easily in...
