[VIS] Re: Interstate Trains at Adelaide Railway Station

I think one of the severely underestimated benefits is tourists looking to go on a day trip to the Hills without having to take the car (or the Barossa). I count myself in this category. If there was a passenger rail service available, which improves accessibility and a different means of getting t...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

This is a stupid policy. With the emergence of driverless AI and electric vehicles in the next 10-20 years, it is very likely that the need and demand for both on street and off street carparking spaces will actually be far less, because the newer technology vehicles will be used in a much more effi...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

I'm a little perplexed where the demand for all these hotel rooms is coming from - even if the bulk of clientele is corporate travellers. The prices that some of the chains charge for what are very basically offerings is extortionate. Doesn't seem like a satisfactory explanation.

That looks atrocious, like as if they left it to the kids in reception to design the building.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

The North Adelaide extension is only expensive because of the work that needs to be done to the King William Street Bridge. I'm no expert and at face value I can see why the general public (and even myself) don't understand this to be the case given that trams went over the same bridge 70 years ago,...

Regarding blank concrete walls, which are usually the consequence of a building abutting a property boundary, this isn’t the developers fault; but a failure of the Council’s own development plan which permits blank concrete walls. If the development plan was amended so it prohibits blank concrete wa...

Hah. You should know by now, DPTI doesn’t operate on logic. Yes an opportunity exists and it would be cheaper, but they won’t do it.

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

Probably the best glazing of any building I’ve seen in Adelaide? SAHMRI is the only one I can think of that comes close. A great addition to the postcard view of the Adelaide Riverbank.
