[U/C] Re: 23-29 Market Street | 58m | 17 levels | Hotel Indigo

Perhaps the podium has some brutalist elements (based purely on what I can see in this photo- haven't really followed it other than that), but I wouldn't have said the rest of the building does. I would hate it if this style of building was continually replicated, in fact more than that- I think I w...

Does anyone know if the plan is to paint a couple of murals on those raw concrete walls?

Very good point. Notre Dame was instrumental in revitalising Fremantle during the 90s.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Is it just me or do other people find the reporting on the proposed bus route changes really quite strange in the sense that all the articles focus on the "number of bus stops lost".... No substantive investigation on proposed frequency or cost or efficiency or coverage (I suppose "losing bus stops...

[U/C] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

I don't mind it either. The cladding makes it look a lot less drab than I was expecting, and I think the simplied windows help it.

[PRO] Re: 51 Pirie Street | ~86m | 21 Levels | Hyatt

Disagree with you Nathan. I walk past it regularly and for me it still has good character and appeal at street level. A development on this site could have been an opportunity to correct the botched 80s job and integrate the facade with a much more creative and sympathetic design Even so, it isn't n...

[PRO] Re: 51 Pirie Street | ~86m | 21 Levels | Hyatt

I was never quite comfortable with the idea of demolishing a local heritage place, but consoled myself with the knowledge that what was replacing it, had some good height and was of high architectural quality. The height has now disappeared, and it seems judging from the vibe that the design will a...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

Not the catalyst development I think most of us were hoping for.... What a joke, surely there are planning regulations that somehow stipulate what is now deemed appropriate use for a CBD site? A lot of people harp on in Adelaide about desire for more development in this city, and by result our plan...

Re: News & Discussion: Cycling

Did anyone hear about this story over the new year? https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw/oslo-cut-road-deaths-to-one-in-2019-can-sydney-do-the-same-20200111-p53qmz.html Adelaide and Oslo obviously have their own unique aspects, but they really aren't that different either.

Have there been any renders of the side walls yet? I really hope they don't just leave them as raw concrete.

[U/C] Re: 104-106 Currie Street | 117m | 33lvl | Sofitel Hotel

The front of the building looks great, but is any one else not such a fan of the white panels they are using on the north and western sides? (Possibly the eastern side too, haven't really had a chance to view it form that vantage point yet). Hopefully more of a pattern will emerge the higher it gets...

Too bad the swiss cheese building didn't have this type of cladding- it would have looked fantastic.

[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

I have loved the tennis, but I completely disagree that the upgraded centre court is adequate for an ATP 250 event, and even less so for a WTA premier event. I have been almost every night this week and there is an entire section of the southern stand that has yet to have anyone sitting there. Becau...
