The Port could get a massive profile boost with some creative lighting featuring the Birkenhead Bridge as the centrepiece.
No point polishing a turd.

Re: Barossa | Oscar Seppeltsfield | 12 Levels

Looks good. Watch the video of it on AdelaideNow if you can. The lower levels look like they flow directly from the vineyard behind it and then flows up to the tower section. Hopefully the build materials/finish are of an extremely high quality, especially if they want to claim being 6 stars. Now, w...

Any concert hall should be near the river and North Terrace as are all our other cultural attractions.
Exactly. But across the road, amongst the the centre of it all, in an already built upon area.
You don't really believe that the Torrens Parade Ground isn't built upon already?

Re: Beer Garden

I still can't believe they have been allowed to open their wet markets where it all supposedly started... They let them flourish again after the 2002/03 SARS outbreak. Twenty years later and we have another SARS outbreak, this time much worse as it's gone global and turned into a pandemic. These co...

Re: Beer Garden

All countries are acting in their self interest when it comes to protective equipment. The US diverted masks destined for Germany and France when they were being transferred between planes in Thailand. So really, no-one can be trusted. https://nypost.com/2020/04/04/us-accused-of-piracy-as-mask-ship...

Re: [VIS] New Concert Hall

A better location for a concert hall then the festival plaza area would be the torrens parade ground. Demolish it all, build the concert hall and properly landscape and pave the surrounding area. NO, hands off the Torrens Parade Ground, its an important site thats used on Anzac Day etc. Honestly, R...

Re: Beer Garden

I read an article that the coronavirus has cost (and China should be sued) for at least $6.5 Trillion for the damage it has done to the worlds G7 economies. Not sure if this is an estimate or the actual cost so far (with Australia’s Govt bailout at $130 billion so far). Btw, anyone know what China ...

Re: News & Developments: Prospect

Anyone know why? I mean you would think they would have more value being left up until at least they found a buyer? Or how likely is it they could be re-purposed elsewhere? Or could it be the tilt-up panel company taking them back if it hasn't been paid? They'll probably recycle the panels along wi...

Re: [VIS] New Concert Hall

looks like parkland dont it.jpg Sure looks like parklands doesn't it? It's the year 2020, and we have people who want the city to look like it's stuck in a time warp. The building is as big an eyesore as the bitumen in front of it is as the gardens around it. The Vietnam War memorial is one of the ...

Wow, all that success listed, and SA is still an economic backwater. Sadly this virus is going to show it more than ever.

Re: Beer Garden

Chinese students studying here then returning to China could be just as much Australian influence on future China as it is Chinese influence on Australia. Doesn't work that way. Which ones, the ones sent as spies on the ccp payroll, or the ones too fearful to say anything because their families bac...

Re: News & Developments: Prospect

The structure is all gone, and yes they are digging up the foundations/slab. They should turn it into an apartment complex that goes over the train line, include a new train station/platform, and a multi level car park perhaps partly underground. Would encourage more people to use the train to get i...

Re: Beer Garden

Hallelujah, lets hope they follow through with it and it's not just words. For now it seems the western world has been woken up to the threat that China presents to our way of life and our values. A complete reset, an end to it all with China. Who in their right minds would be so dependent let alone...

[PRO] Re: 108 Franklin Street | ~62m | 2 x 19 Levels | Hotel and Apartments

That 'jagged' side looks bad, they could improve that I reckon.
The other side, quite like it oddly, but could be let down by materials/finish. Although they could improve that as well, to make it seem less like one huge chunk that sticks out.
