[VIS] Re: Central Market

I'm neither here nor there on the tower elements. It's a nice design, but it would suit the location better if the Hilton site were also being redeveloped. Why the Hilton haven't sought to be involved stumps me -- they've got an opportunity to renew and retain their prime location. There's nothing ...

Amazing to think that Westpac stood alone as the only building in its height class for close enough to 3 decades.

Once this is complete we will have 4 buildings of that height.
Given the time the development will take it's likely that by the time it happens there will be 6-7 in that range.

[VIS] Re: Central Market

From the FAQ: What will be the height of the proposed redevelopment? The current concept design will be subject to design development during 2020. Currently the redevelopment provides a main tower to Grote Street for hotel and residential use with an anticipated height of 35 storeys (including podiu...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Great news, hopefully we can start to see this reflected at the consumer level in the near future. On a national level SA having low power prices would be a great force to pressure the Federal Government on the inevitable move towards renewables.

Government should do more to move fringe offices from Greenhill, Fullarton rds etc to move to city. Offer some sort of incentives eg no stamp duty, rate free periods etc
How is that good for the state?

[APP] Re: 51 Pirie Street | 114m | 28 Levels | Hyatt

Part of CASA's job is to put safety front and center. If they say something is required to ensure safety and an airline says that it isn't cost effective, they will generally come back and say tough. What that means is that CASA isn't easily swayed by arguments like saying that increased height lim...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Edit: remembered to check the scoping report, and the preferred 2014 strategy was short tunnels at Henley Beach and Sir Donald Bradman with an intersection at James Congdon. Intersection? Perhaps Interchange? That too :p Scoping report suggested it would be the main route into the city from that se...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Has anyone seen any concepts of how a trench or underpasses would work for the remaining section? In a 2km stretch you have Henley Beach Road, Sir Donald Bradman, James Congdon/the Bike Route, and Richmond Road. All four of them at least will need to stay traversable in any solution. Getting more an...

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

Sounds like the plan is for one large iconic building in the centre. The policy changes recommended by the Minister include: 3.1. Amending the existing Institutional I3 (University Hospital) Zone so that it does not apply to the Lot Fourteen site and removing reference in that zone to land east of ...

Re: U/C: Australia 108 | 319m | 100lvls | Melbourne

From the AFR. They must be doing partial settlements as its completed. I think there has to be a point where an apartment building becomes too big. This one has over 1,100 apartments. Releasing that amount of stock at once is bound to cause issues in a demand vs supply driven economy. For context M...

This is starting to look really striking when travelling south along King WIlliam Road.
Yeah, I was passing along there just after sunset and it looked great. Wouldn't even mind the Walker tower if it could look as well made as this.

And there goes the pyramid
This building and realm stick out like a sore thumb. I preferred it before when we had Westpac House as the tallest
building and a nice pyramid skyline.
