Illuminate Adelaide

For all those who bang on about bringing back the Northern Lights art projections to the Festival, or about spreading events throughout the year -- the state government will support a new winter event called Illuminate Adelaide. It will chiefly involve art projections throughout the city but will mo...

Re: News & Discussion : New Restaurants, Bars & Night Clubs

Renewal SA apparently intends to more significantly renovate the tenancies at some point, so I presume these vendors are also only operating on a temporary/pop-up basis.

That said, as tough as trade is atm, the 'glamour bar' always seemed like a poor idea.

Looking forward to seeing the designs on this one, hopefully it will be as classy as the brands that are promised for it. Also, it will be interesting to see if there are already office tenants in the mix this early in the development. Finally! This arcade is trash. However, like you, surprised by ...

Huge opportunity. How this contributes to the streetscape & Mall environs will be far more important than height. This is probably the last large underdeveloped site left in the vincinity aside from Galleries arcade/Woolworths.

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

There's also concept art floating around from the perspectives of Elder Park and King William Road. The one perspective I've never seen, however, is from North Tce with Parliament House in the foreground -- I believe this has been deliberately withheld so as not to show the public just how overbeari...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

I don't think the parklands must necessarily be "developed" to be useful as open space. I live in an outer suburb, so perhaps have a different perspective from people who live in the CBD, but I would value having natural bushland nearby, even in the city. If the parklands were developed into stadia...

Shame the DAC want less quality glazing or more concrete. :roll:
To be fair, they're not the only possible solutions to SCAP's concerns. A creative architect could rise to the challenge.

But I suppose it is the likely outcome.

[CAN] Re: Masonic Lodge | 60m | 17lvls | Residential

A tower on the site of the hall behind would be a good way to block out the view of Dwell from North Tce. But an idea I've pondered recently is whether it could be acquired by the state government for a long-awaited concert hall. The riverbank is the obvious contender for such a venue, but this sit...

There was also extra funding for new escalators, not sure if they are going here or just further up on the next level. Next level up, from the plaza between Dunstan Playhouse and Casino down to the promenade and station entry. Andy's photo for context: https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200728/c580...

The former Asian grocer on the corner of Moonta & Gouger is being completely renovated. Anyone know what it might become?
