[VIS] Re: 181 Waymouth Street | ~60m | 17 Levels | Apartments

Looks like the design has changed a fair bit...looks average imo Actually the two rounded winged-roofs would've made this development more dated. Something out of Flash Gordon. Now it will look more like all the other apartments, so if it dates all the others will too. :lol: Cheers P.S. Nathan had ...

Has this been proposed/approved?
It's "in the pipeline" so probably still in the planning stage. It looks like approximately 85 metres in height.

If they could reclad the Intercontinental then it would really be a pretty view. Dreams are free aye.
Off topic but yes the stone facades of many Adelaide buildings make them look heavy. Lightweight non-flammable panels would do the trick.

[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

I can verify those sitting on the western side of the northern stand were getting baked on Sunday afternoon/evening. Also, spectators in the Aperol bar area on the eastern side were looking directly into the sun for quite a while. Probably not an ideal situation. Yes I noticed this on the TV covera...

[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Went to last night's session, and was surprised at how little protection the roof actually provides spectators from the elements, especially on the western end of the old stands. The roof needed to be a tad wider to provide maximum protection. [...] Although I haven't been down there, what I can ga...

Thanks d3v310per for the pic of centre court. I experienced the heat on this court many times when taking pics as a photojournalist. One time if I remember correctly it was shy of 40C in the shade but up and probably over 55C on the court. I had to cover my head and lens with a towel. A slightly dam...

Rotterdam and the view of the Nieuwe Maas (New Maas) river, the cruise terminal and a group of modern buildings on the Wilhelminapier. Taken in October 2017, but more interesting towers have been added since. On the left is the Erasmusbrug (Erasmus Bridge). https://i.postimg.cc/xdgpDCh1/Rotterdam-Wi...

Not exactly all shots of the Hong Kong sklyine but still impressive views of the different styles of achitecture. These pics taken in March 2019. Not the best of weather unfortuantely. The sun evaded me during my five days there. https://i.postimg.cc/YStsjVW0/HK-1-2019.jpg From left to right: Bank o...

Re: Kangaroo Island | Developments & News

The Southern Ocean Lodge can be rebuilt, but the landscape will take a lot of time to regenerate. The lodge on its own won't bring guests and tourists. KI is too important to SA for tourism. A real pity.
