Re: Beer Garden

Entirely unprompted by me, my mother launched into a conversation today wishing for greater height and density along major thoroughfares and the tram line. Encourage more multi-level residential construction in appropriate areas, she said, so that local shops have half a chance to survive and younge...

Re: Which Aussie cities hate their airport most

Adelaide Airport is marvellous - by far the easiest I've had to navigate.

Glenelg and Glenelg South are the two most populated suburbs in South Australia, followed by Ferryden Park, results from RP Data show. In the country, R...

Re: Major issues with new Bus Operator Transfield

My route has been marvellous - on time every single day at any stop I've happened to catch it from, in either direction. Ten points! Now to fix the next issue - hyperactive braking (BRAKE release BRAKE release BRAKE release BRAKE release BRAKE release) and an odd habit at red lights of revving the e...

Re: Dean Lukin's great white golf plan for Port Lincoln

The shark is, um, distinctive. If there's a market for the development, great! What they need is for all that southern bluefin aquaculture malarkey to take off on a large scale.

Someone fill me in regarding Port Lincoln. Is it nice there?

Re: CBD Development: Low/Mid-Rise

Gallery bar on Waymouth is proposing an extension into the building next door and an additional level. http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee116/beamer85/image001.png I think I can speak on behalf of both myself and Omicron and say that we highly approve of this.

Re: #SWP: 45 Park - Gilberton - $180 million

Agree to a point. It would have been much better for the Government to say, "hey, it was an oversight to have missed city rim properties and we hereby extend to them the stamp duty concessions". I think we can all agree that having apartment towers on either side of the parklands is a good thing. B...

Having had a look at the list, all i can say is that most inclusions are very reasonable. Indeed, I am shocked that some of those buildings aren't already heritage listed. Most of those buildings contribute to the 'mojo' of what makes Adelaide attractive and unique. I agree. As always, a balance ne...

Thank you, sir. I was most pleased to find those Capital City images - it seemed to me as if all record of it had been erased. Until now.
