Nice find Mants. I like the new render (the podium reminds me somewhat of the Gallery), though I suspect it won't turn out quite as depicted.

Re: Heritage Listed Buildings

By the way has anyone had a look at that tea/coffee lounge (forgotten the weird name - Sadechin or something) they have done in the grand ground floor foyer of the old AMP building 1936, It looks fantastic. I actually thought this was the old Commonwealth Bank building though. Was it ever? I have. ...

In my opinion, the convenience of a centrally located airport trumps any inconvenience caused by height restrictions.

Re: Heritage Listed Buildings

To note, only two of SA's buildings are on the National Heritage list, the Old and New Parliament Houses.. Off the topic slightly, I seem to recall some debate a couple of years ago on constructing the unfinished domed tower on parliament house.. were any designs proposed at the time or were they u...

Re: Glenside redevelopment

The Government hinted some time ago at the possibility of relocating SAFC to the West End as part of that area's revitalisation. I hope that's still the most popular option among the decision-makers, as SAFC would fit in well (especially in or near Light Square). I suppose, though, that Glenside wou...

Re: Glenelg Tram Line Upgrade

That's an odd thing to be worried about. It's had to deal with regular power lines for its entire existence. There's still some on Grenfell Street. I was being more than a little sarcastic there. I was trying to point out that all sorts of arguments can be mounted, of varying merit. What has to be ...

Re: Glenelg Tram Line Upgrade

Never ever would they extend a tram line over the eastern half of North Terrace while poles and overhead wires are necessary* to power trams. It would be considered far too ugly an addition to such an iconic boulevard. And while I don't always find these overhead wires ugly in most areas, and can i...
