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

This is a render that was published by InDaily a month ago. Not sure how old it is though: https://indaily.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/Lot_Fourteen.png Also from the same article : But Hayter said excavation works required to replace the damaged paving on the North Terrace footpath could cut t...

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

It was the landscaping contractor that declared they couldn’t work with the trees in situ. Not that they couldn't work with them, it was more that it was due to the position of the roots, any work would likely have killed them. Sure you could incorporate them into the landscaping plan and hope for ...

Trees are in the process of being cut down. They’ve fenced off the whole north side of North Tce.

[U/C] Re: Renaissance Arcade | 132m | 40 Levels | Realm Apartments

It's more likely the lower quality design is being dictated by local developers, not architects. You then get an annoying situation where because local architects keep being asked to do less adventurous work, when a developer does want something of a higher standard, they overlook all the locals and...

By GPS I did mean Google Maps or if you must, TomTom based services like Apple Maps. If you use anything other than Google Maps you have junk traffic data ;) So Google Maps real-time traffic data is better than Apple Maps? Just asking, I find Apple Maps real time traffic pretty reliable but never t...

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

I actually think the Intercon is somewhat unfairly maligned on here sometimes, as a building I think the design isn't bad - sort of reminds me a bit of Australis House on Grenfell. The colour probably isn't ideal/hasn't aged too well though. Also, the atrium has a great 80s futurism type feel. I ag...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

They're also recruiting on Seek for a new 'CWH Adelaide Pultney' store, so that about confirms it. If they're relocating, I'd say it'd be Adelaide Central Plaza that'd close as Gawler Place and Myer Centre have more distinct catchments. Shame in a way, because a chaotic-looking Chemist Warehouse is...

La Taberna is the next to open in the former Cocolat / Petrichor space on, ahem, “Rundel St”.

[APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

I don't see the complaint about food and drink prices. It's no different to pricing at any other captive venue or event, and it should just be assumed there's some kind of premium on them. Comparisons between other stadiums on who is 10 or 20c cheaper/dearer for a pint and some hot chips is dumb, as...

Interesting that the Advertiser's reporting of the inquiry is almost entirely focused on F&B pricing, with an "oh, the hotel will help keep those prices down" bit at the end. :roll:

[COM] Re: Victoria Square Upgrade - $24m

I'm glad to see it at least mentioned again, but yes, it needs to be the whole hog — realign the roads, the grand arbours, all of the planting. Whilst some work is better than none, Adelaide needs to stop fucking around with half arseing things. Better to do a few things properly than doing too many...
