Re: Barossa | Oscar Seppeltsfield | 12 Levels

I think that’s the question, whether it is/will become an iconic structure. It’s a very subjective question. Also it’s based on a render and the actual could vary greatly (better or worse). Not sure who the architect is. Possibly if they were using say an internationally recognised company it may gi...

Re: News & Discussion: Low/Mid-Rise CBD Development

I think the planners/those approving the developments want the the ground floor “activated” with businesses/retail. I guess what’s the alternative? Just a foyer or a ground floor apartment?

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

You would realistically think the next tram stop would be in front of AO, so I doubt they would put another stop only 200m away in front of the Cathedral.

[COM] Re: New Calvary Hospital | 60m | 12 lvls | Cnr Angas/Pulteney

The offices are the joint developers HQs - Agostino who owned the Calvary Site (Yorke Motors I think). Not sure if the helicopter pad is for the hospital or the offices?

I think what needs to be highlighted is the Victorian Govt made the GF at the MCG for the next 40 years in 2018 as a condition of a $500m mega-deal for the AFL.

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

I agree... Is it because we dont have the TBMs, havent the skilled labour for them here and would need to import them in, higher dumping costs of all the excavated soil or anyone have any other ideas why?

Yes you would ideally want developments on the streets/ lots that are North facing for the energy efficiency aspect.

[U/C] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

I think you are missing my point. There was talk of the Indian cricket team, the Boxing day test or whatever coming to AO [and using the hotel]. Most sports teams/countries/staff/media etc etc would probably need a min. 100 rooms. So there are 138 rooms in total so if the public is free to book any ...

[U/C] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

They are advertising an opening special on their website $199 per night from 1 Oct for 4 months. So does that mean any major sports side/country are now unlikely to be coming here to play/stay in that time (if the public are free to book it out)?

Re: News & Discussion: Other Metropolitan Developments

If anyone knows have petrol stations always been able to trade 24/7 (or when did this come in) and so be excluded from the normal regulations/opening hours of say a supermarket, deli etc?

[PRO] Re: 52-66 King William Street | ~65m | 15 Levels | Southern Cross Arcade

While I agree I would have loved to see this 3x higher, the floor plates are massive, some 3000-4000 sqm per floor (4,000 sqm is an acre). So the trade off could have been a tall slender tower 3 x taller but with say 1,000 sq m floor plates or of course they go 3x higher with the risk the building b...

A motorway of 2 x 3 lanes plus median is say a 21m width. Allowing for 2 at grade service roads, footpaths, landscaping etc the min. width needed is say 30m?

[COM] Re: Oaklands Crossing | $174m

There is quite a bit of temporary fencing around properties to be demolished/land to be cleared from the Oaklands crossing continuing on Diagonal Rd to opp. the Aquatic Centre/Westfield Marion. Anyone know what the plan is? Or if its just going to be a wider, better lit path with landscaping etc?

I don’t quite understand the argument as what is to say there wont be 1000 or more highly paid, well educated employees just working for other companies in Lot 14 anyway?
