Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

It's a no from me. A big, fat, whopping no. This kind of proposal should not even be entertained - in any form. The Crows are a private entity. Private entities have no place in the Parklands. The Parklands are a public asset to be enjoyed by all people. In general I agree. But I also don't think w...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

If they are going to be so dramatically reducing the types of facilities offered to the public then I think the council should take it to open tender. If the Crows have the best offer then so be it, but perhaps some other organisation or business could offer more public services. Yes, this is the i...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

I know someone working on this for the Crows. From what I understand, the council has been inconsistent about what it needs and wants. I also understand the Crows are happy to fund a more basic aquatic offering but believe council should pitch in if they want an equivalent level of amenity to the cu...

[U/C] Re: [U/C] Re: SkyCity Adelaide Casino Expansion | 55m | 12 Levels | Hotel

This is a week old (sorry, forgot to upload), but shows a different perspective from other photos and also shows the Festival Tower columns starting to come out of the ground! Do the columns wed this site to the existing design or would it be possible for another design to be engineered to the same...

Re: SA Economy

However the article saying that we are resembling a regional country town because of our ageing demographics, in my opinion is a crock of shit. What country town even comes close to resembling Adelaide, look at our city for example, according to these forums we average ten to fifteen new high rise ...

[PRO] Re: Central Market Arcade Redevelopment

Love the proposal, especially the red brick arches, and am really glad that they're keeping the original markets intact. 24/7 nightlife and improved laneway access and connections. All around a very positive outcome. Pretty sure they said on the news report that the old market hall will be demolish...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Noticed carpark solar going up at Castle Plaza the other week too. I'd rather no open air carparks but if they're going be there this is a great use of space and provision of shade.

We should be greening the desert like the Israelis. We have plenty of sun to generate energy and water to desalinate...FFS! Is that a good suggestion?

[PRO] Re: Central Market

I'm very happy with this. Two of my absolute musts have been met: 24/7 access between Grote and Gouger, and the reinstatement of the brick arch motif. I'm neither here nor there on the tower elements. It's a nice design, but it would suit the location better if the Hilton site were also being redeve...

[PRO] Re: Central Market

"Last month, ACMA chair Nick Begakis told a council committee meeting the market would require extra financial assistance from the council during construction. He said 260 fewer car parks would be available for customers during that period." Sure, 260 fewer car parks out of how many in the surround...
