[COM] Re: #APP: City Central 8 - Aust Tax Office | 72m 18lvls

I suggest that the reason why the developers are lodging both 18 level and 20 level options concurrently, is because the developers want to have a bet each way. I suppose, the ATO and Australia Post only require 18 levels. With banks being quite tight these days, I think they are more willing to fu...

[COM] Re: SOS for 'dying' Rundle Mall

Neither of those malls (Queen St or Elizabeth St) looked any busier or livelier than Rundle Mall -- ok so they're just a couple of photos, but when I did an image search to see more, there wasn't anything that made me say "wow, they're doing so much better". Now, more dining along the mall would be...

Re: #U/R: Newport Quays | [ Port Adelaide Waterfront ]

I still think that in the long term the Port is going to become a very fashionable place. It may take a couple of decades since things have stalled a little, but at some point redevelopment will reach a critical mass.

I will miss Acadamy Cinema! :( Why? The Palace Nova is infinitely better. They really need to promote it better. I have lost count of how many people I have talked to who don't realise that Palace Nova shows most new mainstream movies and not just niche stuff. Even fewer realise that the IMAX scree...

Re: Docklands style development at Keswick

Are you serious? Keswick has nothing in common with either Docklands in Melbourne or London....Dublin I dont know. Keswick feels some random rundowm inner city area in a US city- I dont see a Docklands style future. What it has in common is a large area of underused land near the City. And though i...

Hmm, it all still leaves a good chunk of railroad tracks that could be used for something later on. Isn't the lower half of tracks earmarked to disappear - from the Ts of 'Morphett St' south? I do find it intriguing that there doesn't seem to be any consideration for the relocation of the Casino de...

[CAN] Re: CAN: Spire Living | 107m | 37lvls | Residential

I reckon we should start a company an propose a high rise apartment block, without ridiculous profit margins attatched. That way you would presell most of the apartments, and you'd be able to start construction alot faster. Shotgun CEO. The catch22 is how do you get investors in the first place if ...

I'd guess they are just submitting to keep the value of the land up. Does anyone know if the site sold yet?

This one is dead. The land has been advertised in today's Advertiser for sale under instructions from what appears to be a receiver. It states that there is planning approval for a 25 story building. Disappointing, but not too surprising given all the delays. Will be interesting to see what happens...

Re: Dazzleland

I wonder what would be required to save the Myer Center. Save isn't the right word as I don't see it being demolished any time in the near future, however it is obviously not living up to any of its potential. The upper floors tend to be quiet and the top two floors are now completely abandoned. The...

102m that would be the tallest building since the State bank building (now Westpac) right ? Yeh, and will be 2 metres short of the Telstra building. Will make it the third tallest in the city. Shame we're still so low though.. Adelaide hasn't grown much higher, but over the past twenty years the de...

Re: #PRO: Golden Grove Village revamp

I for one don't really understand how this developement is going to go ahead. The centre has had empty shops in it before, and for quite some time. Demand has to be in place before a centre normally expands, especially such a big expansion like this one. I also know that the general turnover at thi...
