Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

"still going strong"

In hindsight, having a pawn broker adjacent to a casino was never a good idea and probably highly predatory.

Weird. Time out bench?
I think some DPTI planners need to sit on it.

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

And you know those trees would be planted as saplings, so give it close to a 5-10 years before you would get anything close to that amount of greenery.

I think we’ve established many times that DPTI can’t pat their head and run their tummy at the same time.

Re: The SA Politics Thread

To fill up a car, say 50 litres, can range from $59 @ $1.19/L to $84 @ $1.69/L. Using Uber, from Henley Beach it will cost $24-$32 per trip. $48 a day. $240 a week minimum. Blair Athol to the CBD - $20-$27. $40 a day. $200 a week minimum. Brompton to the CBD - $14-$19. $28 a day. $140 a week minimu...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

I own multiple vehicles. Personal vehicles and a work vehicle. There's no taxi or uber option that would see me give up any of them. Why? What would be the tipping point to make you consider giving up any of them? Taxis and Uber/the rest can not replace peoples work vehicles. I'm not talking about ...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

People aren't going to give up their personally owned cars in favour of a driverless taxi. Not in 20 years, not in 40 years. I think people need to lower their expectations a little..remember, a couple decades ago they were predicting we would have flying cars buzzing around everywhere. Some might,...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

Labor wants to increase minimum parking requirements for new developments? What happened transit-oriented development? Seems like a ploy to win favour among nimbys. Doesn't matter though, as their private member's bill won't be passed. https://indaily.com.au/news/2019/08/07/labors-car-parking-polic...

Re: 210 Greenhill Road, Eastwood | ~24m | 7 Levels

5 levels of car parking for 3 levels of office space? :?

(meanwhile, it has less than half the minimum required bicycle spaces – just 12 for the entire building)

Meanwhile in Canberra :roll:
Looks nice, but doesn't look like it provides anywhere near as good weather protection as the Adelaide type.
At least they put the arrival screens in a sensible spot.

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

Not sure what the go is with starting threads here, but I just came across a website for 181 Waymouth Street. Looks like the site of the old music store, at the South-West corner of Light Square. Called “The Cullinan”, looks like an apartment development of approx 15-16 levels. www.thecullinan.com....

[APP] Re: Royal Hotel Kent Town | 43m | 14 Levels | Mixed Use

Looks like that website that Ben posted is dead now. Isn't this the pub that shut down recently because the group that owns it and a few others went bankrupt? Yes. They also blamed the Obahn tunnel construction work for its closure. The pub has since reopened and now known as the Royal Terrace Hote...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I sincerely hope they don't. They should drop the few Glenelg / Ent Centre trams altogether and focus on two clear distinct lines. And the substitute buses were a complete fucking nightmare with the Botanic/RAH route completely out of sync with the Ent Centre / South Tce bus, scheduled buses not sho...
