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

So they've announced that the space agency headquarters will be here in Adelaide. It's no coincidence that where just a few months away from an election. At this time, ScoMo is most likely going to all of the states making 'good news' announcements. The announcement of the 'headquarters' being in A...

Maybe you haven't seen the designs for these developments yet, but the Festival Centre Plaza area is being upgraded into a more attractive, destination, activity space than the original 'NOTHING' before. The opponents to the Hotel will be silent when it proves to be a commercial, tourist luring suc...

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

This development, and that of the Adelaide Oval Hotel are not increasing the existing developed footprint. IF either of them carved into more greenspace, then surely that would be the time to have a justifiable whinge. The plaza was a public park even if concrete. The public were welcome to enjoy t...

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

EVERYTHING on the northern side of North Terrace is in the Park Lands. I have a copy of Light's original plan and back then he didn't factor in the Railways, Museum, Library, University, Art Gallery etc. He drew a spot for Government House, a hospital in the east park lands, army barracks, storage ...

No this building was increased in height. The second was originally taller but was reduced. Thread title is correct. Thread title is wrong.

Even more noticeable from Victoria Park! Perfect vantage point for all the new East side developments. But didn't this building get reduced down from the original 78m? Just wondering because the thread title was never changed. Yeah, I believe it is now 24 and 20 floors. From today about to start fl...

A fantastic addition to the Adelaide Oval experience. Imagine how well occupied this hotel would be. Another draw card for the sports lover to come to Adelaide. The footprint doesn't even encroach on any undeveloped parkland. Therefore the ACC wankers and Parkland zealots are simply attention seeker...

I've seen several 380's on the road. Are they a reliable car?

Sorry, off topic :wink: :wink:
I don't know. Try googling used car reviews for A380.
From all accounts the A380s have been a very reliable passenger vehicle, with terrific international capabilities.
