[COM] Re: Adelaide Convention Centre and Riverbank Redevelopment

5V9fRPzvtm8 Looks like they are planning on building up the western side of the Morphett St bridge as well, curious that the video seems to be very intentionally not pointing down that way. Is this the first time we have seen how the footbridge over the Torrens is expected to work? Seems it doesn't...

Re: Public appeal succeeds in Skyshow's return

It was certainly good timing coinciding with the last night of the Fringe as well. I had to work so couldn't attend but it sounds like Adelaide CBD would have been an amazing place to be last night!

Re: BIG ideas for a little city

It's a similar situation where we live, by Winston Avenue, which has a modest collection of shops - including a strangely large number of hairdressers (three within walking distance, more further along) - but it lost a green-grocer, a GP, and the home-brew shop in the time we were away. All of the ...

Re: BIG ideas for a little city

More and larger neighbourhood shopping precincts, ones that you can walk to from your home. Every second suburb should have one. Maybe every suburb. The tricky thing with these is doing it, and making it work. Elizabeth was designed with each of the sub-suburbs having their own little central shopp...

Here are three shots from Saturday night, the 6th of March 2010. The canopy was continuously cycling through different colours and patterns. The LED signs in the background were dazzling when displaying a lot of white. Thanks Bill. These photos are dazzling! This venue will add a lot of interest an...

Re: Puzzle Park redevelopment

Adelaide simply doesn't have the population to support a major theme park, people need to get some context. Alton Towers for example attracts almost three million visitors a year, that means everyone of a suitable age in the entire state would have to visit twice a year to support something like it ...

Re: #U/C: Port Adelaide Tram Line

I am confused on how we going to run trains to Outer Harbor and run tram-trains along part of the corridor between Bowden and Port Adelaide, considering the tram-trains would need to be low-floor so passengers can get on in the city streets and the trains would need to be high floor so passengers c...

What's wrong with bare concrete?
Nothing so long as it looks good, that doesn't.

Re: ACC threat to close Adelaide Aquatic Centre

On the railyards next to the hospital would be a perfect site. The current position of the aquatic center is terrible as you have all the negatives of needing to drive into the city to get to it, with it being far enough out of the city center that it doesn't have any of the positives. A railyards s...

Re: Water the freaking lawns

I’ve now been to two of the openings of the festivals in Adelaide one of Rymil Park and the other on Vic Park. I cannot fathom why the Council or the State government has not watered the lawns on either site leading up to the event? Sure we are in a drought but considering these are meant to be an ...

Re: #U/C: Northern Expressway | 22km

When this road opens in Sept this year whenever. And when Buckland park starts breeding its style of bad taste housing. Port Wakefield rd between PREXY AND NEXY will be a right prick. You wait and see. Ray. Good job they are already planning around that. :D http://www.infrastructure.sa.gov.au/north...
