Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

CDJ kept on dropping hints that it was still being worked on, but given the years since we heard anything and the fact that the companies website is dead I think it's safe to say it's never gonna happen. Would still love to see what the plans were though.

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

The hbr intersection is 7 lanes as it stands with a fair bit of space everywhere. You only need 2 lanes of through traffic in each directions. Which to me means you could do the cut and cover in 2 halves. Could, but then you're looking at taking much longer and more expense since I imagine they'd h...

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

Yeah the water feature looks awful, but it seems like it's part of the stoush where the state government built it and wanted the ACC to take on responsibility for the costs to upkeep? Seems like a stand off where no-one wants to establish precedent of being responsible for it.

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

As I live in the inner-west I'm trying to not have too much of an opinion on the tunnel debate to avoid any NIMBYism (far enough away from South Road that we wouldn't be effected either way other than how the trip into town looks afterwards). I don't know about the feasibility of cut and cover. How ...

[U/C] Re: 269 North Terrace | 118m | 36 Levels | Student accommodation

'Cheap' seems to be the most commonly used word on this forum. Most of which by people who have no direct involvement or vested interest in such projects. Probably never even set foot on a commercial construction site for that matter. :lol: I suppose, maybe painting the concrete is more expensive t...

That food court is one of the worst in Adelaide, I'm really glad to see it go. Good riddance.
It's often one of the busiest.

elderpark.png I think somebody's gonna be in trouble for releasing unannounced state government concepts. Note also Bicentennial Park in front of the railways.

Re: [PRO] St Peters Cathedral [$100 million]

Will they be making their facilities available for public uses that go against their religious views? If so could be worth considering, if not then there is no reason for the government to be funding this.

Went for a walk past a couple of days ago, I think this building will look fine on the skyline, but you can definitely see the cheapness of the materials more up close.

Yeah, it really shows off the cheapness of the Adelaidean leaving so much bare concrete exposed.

Re: Barossa | Oscar Seppeltsfield | 12 Levels

Hasn't the Cube brought extra attention and tourists (which of course means more money) to the McLaren Vale wine region?

Re: Barossa | Oscar Seppeltsfield | 12 Levels

I quite like it, so long as it isn't too obtrusive on the views from other wineries around there. We were in the Barossa recently visiting some local wineries. There seems to be a lot of push back against this project where they are all happy with the idea of a high quality hotel in the area, but t...

Don't forget the turn between King William Street and North Terrace which was the most important PT issue in the state until they got in power. :lol:

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

What's the latest update on AdeLINK? It was proposed back in 2016 ( link ), Infrastructure Australia says "Medium term (5-10 years)" ( link ). 4 out of 10 years have passed. As ChillyPhilly said, the state election happened and the Liberals were very vocally against the tram plans. Even if Labor ge...

[U/C] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

Went for a walk past yesterday and in person it does overall look good. It's a shame that the plasticky looking orange panels seem to have their final finish though, the tarnished metallic parts look great.
