View from the corner of Rundle St and Pulteney St. (19/12/2019)
That'd be the corner of Rundle Street and Frome Road?
Frome Street, to be exact.

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

I'm glad for it and hope to see a similar treatment one day applied to the full length of Gawler Place. It's a much enhanced entrance to the Mall, especially once the trees mature. But there are few design choices that niggle me. For one, the hanging garden 'arbours' -- IIRC, we got these rather tha...

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

I think you're overestimating the amount of traffic in the area. In all the times I've driven through I've rarely encountered a single car in the area. This, plus the fact that the Flinders Line will have a low frequency, makes grade separation pointless. It's less about right now, and more about w...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Even though earthquakes are infrequent here, just remember Adelaide lies on or near a fault line would not like to be stuck in a damn tunnel if one hits. That should be no issue for engineers. Turkey built a double deck tunnel underneath the Bosphorus Strait in a far more seismically active region.

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

"Tonsley" will to be replacing Clovelly Park Station (which is a dump) but there seems to be very little parking included in the station design. Isn't a 6-level car park being built just a short walk away? Anyway, I imagine most people outside the station catchment who wish to drive to train will e...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Cost wise, $10-40m to bulldoze, $300-400m to rebuild. This is fanciful. By way of comparison, the old RAH is costing $180-200 million to demolish. Admittedly, that includes remediation, but then again: the Myer Centre takes up an entire city block. Not only is there zero logic to this suggestion, i...

[PRO] Re: 124-126 Franklin Street | 86m | 26 Lvls | Hotel

Of all the proposed hotels (of which, not many have actually come through to construction), I can't see why this would have more of shot than the others. Especially with no announced operator. Likely the landholder trying to push or maintain land value higher.

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Cinema/Leisure (HOYTS, bowling, holey Moley, escape rooms etc) That would be a perfect use of the space, something that brings people into the mall and the way the building is setup it would have good visibility. I think this is a better fit for (and only way to save) the upper levels of the Myer C...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

When in Melb recently around dinner time there was about 15 to 20 people lining up to buy food/dinner inside the Coles express (not sure if they were homeless) but there was not even a car/person filling petrol. Maybe the next big food trend, taking the family to a servo for dinner. It's not that f...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Harris Scarfe has gone into voluntary administration but will keep trading through at least Christmas while they look for a buyer. Remembering that they’ve gone broke before (in 2001), I reckon they’ll probably keep going in some form or another. But if not, that’s a significant space to have vacant...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

I'm taking the reports regarding the centre's viability at face value. It's an issue that's been covered in the media for years, long before the Crows proposal was even a thought bubble. I tend to trust that more than anecdotal impressions of visitors to the place. And I certainly trust it more than...
