[VIS] Re: 181 Waymouth Street | ~60m | 17 Levels | Apartments

Actually, seeing those side-by-side I think I might prefer the new look. I do miss the arches, and there's the unknown upper aspect of the new design, but it looks a little more coherent now. Either way, I hope it's serious proposal given CBD residential is soon to come to a standstill.

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

It appears that Atlantis Bar & Lounge has reopened under new owners, without mermaids but still with a high degree of tacky. I do, however, welcome the new owners' intent to open a new 24 hour bakery next to the bar -- finally, midnight (drunk) pies for city dwellers!

I can't find the original renders, but it appears design development has led to a more basic look with new renders up on the website now. It's not hideous, but it's no longer as elegant as I remember the first concepts.

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

The poles for the raised planter....hangy....pergola thingies (not really sure what they are) are being installed on Gawler Place north. They're calling it an 'arbour', although I would rather more actual trees at this end. I imagine in a decade's time we'll probably see both the canopy and these a...

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

I agee SRW and it’s looks like its going to be a congested area let alone adding another tower. The stakeholders have had years to agree and did sign off on the plan so I am wondering why didn’t they make their suggestions or any changes at the start? Also with multiple neighbouring stakeholders I ...

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

I'm not saying the concept design for the square is by any means exceptional, or that it can't be improved, but consider me really bloody sceptical of Walker Group's intent here. It strikes me as an exercise of shifting goal posts and passing bucks -- specifically, the supposed 'costs blowouts', iss...

Didn't manage to grab a photo but these two look very tall from the bottom-end (south) of Lefevre Tce.

I hope it's just a primer -- the cream/manila colour suits this building.

Re: New Adelaide public transport hub

I don't think anyone's suggesting a literal loop -- the weight of opinion is clearly for through-running. 'Loop' is just useful shorthand. But if we're going to go to the expense of undergrounding rail, it makes sense to extend the catchment east as well as south (with stations in the vicinity of Hi...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

Just on city laneways, it appears the proposal to cover Moonta St Chinatown has (thankfully) morphed into a proposal for an artwork/lighting canopy. https://ehq-production-australia.imgix.net/bf1617ff5a7b9270c08f0b05c4d27a6d0180a752/projects/images/000/050/587/original/191029_Moonta_Street_Image_sm....

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Dr Marten's opened on Gawler Place today in the Edments Building (in the tenancy next to where Monday's was).

Meanwhile, Oxfam Shop has closed on Charles Street.

I was under the impression that the desalination plant had its own solar panel array on site that it uses to power the plant.

It has one but it's nowhere near enough energy to power the plant.
