[SWP] Re: Former RAH Site (Design Competition)

As much as I dislike utilising parklands for private development which isn't community orientated - if the buildings are already there and heritage, would love to see this building and its next door neighbor as a residential or hotel conversion. Superficially well suited for it and could help fund s...

[COM] Re: Adelaide Convention Centre - Stage 3 | $350m

Again so sad to think this didn't happen... and we ended up with three miss matched elements that do nothing to integrate with their surroundings. The restaurants part of the latest extension feels like an afterthought. I only hope more is added and the vision makes sense once the Riverbank develop...

Re: Another widespread power outage in SA

It's disappointing though how much of Turnbull & co's misinformation around SA's energy transition is allowed to go unchallenged in the media. They're barefaced liars on the matter.As churlish as Weatherill's gatecrash might come across, they needed to be called out and in some ways I wish he'd be...

Re: Another widespread power outage in SA

The irony in all this is that a shift to greater than 50% renewables will end up being market driven anyway (baring interference from vested political and economic interests). The cost of grid/ user level storage is at a point where the rollout of significant amounts of storage capacity is inevitabl...

Re: Another widespread power outage in SA

The blatant politisiation of the the power outages by the Fed Libs is a complete and utter disgrace and the definition of "fake news". These blackouts have been caused by a variety of factors include 1) weather events 2) predatory price fixing behaviour by generators 3) The infamous operational inte...

Re: Uber

JAKJ, I believe that Uber is operating here in Adelaide as they were advertising for drivers about a month ago. I wouldn't imagine that the money invovled in driving for Uber would be too good. Last time I was in Adelaide (two weeks ago) they only had uber black not uber x, but I wouldn't be surpri...

Re: Uber

Uber black is more expensive, but they use "town cars" i.e. Holden Caprices. Uber x is cheaper (30% cheaper) than taxis, however they have not launched in Adelaide yet (I exclusively use them in Perth as no patiences for crappy taxis anymore). I have found Uber X to provide a great service and have ...

it doesn't get much clearer than that! Oh really? And this is what I asked... Is anyone able to compile a list of proposals for this site, the year they were proposed, and whether council approved or rejected the proposal? It couldn't have been put any clearer. You didn't have to give us a pointles...

No proposal was ever officially lodged with the council. http://mobile.news.com.au/national/finally-an-end-to-le-cornu-site-feud/story-e6frfkp9-1225748387842 Also, as I stated before, from 2007 onwards the council has not had any decision making power over the site, so any opposition from the counci...

It's got beyond a joke with that site. I pretty much agree with what was suggested in the Advertiser. The site has become significant to Adelaide in its current state and should be preserved and heritage listed. It's a monument to the great Adelaide tradition of missed opportunities. They should in...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

Lol at Cr. Anne "no" Moran. Truth hurts does it? What a goose! One of the quirks of Adelaide that I love is that in this city, the 'rich'tossers of North Adelaide think they're better than everybody else, but for their sins we make them live under the predominant flight path of Adelaide Airport.

It will be interesting to see how quickly public transport is adopted for travelling to games. I know a lot of nervous North Adelaide residents who are worried about North Adelaide turning into a car park on game day.
