[SWP] Re: SAHMRI Stage 2

I know the final design of a building often differs from the fancy computer renders we see, but this takes the cake! :D https://i.imgur.com/gE66xRs.jpg Any ideas what the shed is really for? Looks like they're offsetting the construction costs with some hydro grow, but i could be wrong :lol:

[APP] Re: 203 North Terrace | ~115m | 35 levels | Student Accom

So I spoke with someone from Synergy at work today, apparently the reason for the extensive gutting of this building is not asbestos (although they still have removed quite a bit) but rather that all the framework of the original building was termite ridden and structurally unstable. So all that wi...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

Do members get an extra allowance/pay grade to be Shadow Ministers over being ordinary MPs? There are three other parties in the Legislative Council and a total of four independents in the Assembly. They should also be entitled to receive just as much for touring the state to hear the views of the ...

A three-way contrast. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200422/00c62b6e215038f9642a900ce3b16b23.jpg Same photo but with a mock facade cover now up on the station and work happening to the station windows inside and out. Wonder if it’s all part of the same work? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...

[SWP] Re: SAHMRI Stage 2

Might it end up being elevated over the sidewalk, as were the site offices for the uni buildings? IIRC, this project has a number of subfloors (where the particle accelerator is located), so I'd expect fairly significant excavation where it's currently located.

Re: 250 homes to be demolished for 650 new ones

So will at least 250 of the 650 new homes remain social housing? I think these types of renewals are a great opportunity, but let's not forget SA has the second-highest number of people in the country waiting for housing -- in absolute terms too, not relative! The government (mostly the Commonwealth...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I don't know if we need these sorts of prototype vehicles, but our bus fleet should start transitioning to all-electric in the next 10 years, particularly the O-Bahn. Aside from the green credentials, the city will be far more pleasant without all the diesel engines thundering around.

Is that the finished product? :shock:
Lol, clearly not. You can see the kerb is still higher than the concrete surface, which is merely a base for the pavement to come.

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

A retail space fronting a public square with 0 ground level activation on the square. Seriously? There will be some sort of salad or smoothie bowl place next to the SA Health entrance (other side from the supermarket), but it did strike me as stupid that the cafe inside Foodland didn't include even...

Hopefully that plot is snapped up for more apartments. South Tce towers of 7-10 levels seem to have no problem selling.

Render I hadn't seen before from an interesting perspective (although from before Park 25 was upgraded):

What do they mean by ticket office? Most of the stations labelled with one aren't staffed and doesn't have any sort of ticket vending.
This map is from 40 years ago. Many stations once had, or were adjacent to, little kiosks.
