I too agree, the white helps to define the horizontal lines somewhat more. I think it is a huge improvement.
It definitely is, adds contrast that makes the glass look darker.

I think the white paint is an afterthought and makes it look cheap Sent from my SM-J730G using Tapatalk Check the first page of this thread, those elements are white in the render of the building. At the time I think most of us would have assumed it was going to be some clean white concrete, but lo...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

It's mighty optimistic of him to be touting the shipbuilding work when the lasting legacy of him quitting when it looked like the Coalition were going to lose government might be SA losing a lot of that work to WA.

That's not a problem with the trees, that's a silly protectionist.

[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Am I the only one that doesn't particularly like the idea of turning 500m on each side of our main boulevard into the city into an ode to (spectator) sport, filled with stadiums? Also, is the church at Hindmarsh that much of an impediment? We've lost things of far greater heritage value, for far le...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

[ So it wasn't easier before with two lanes? No my argument doesn't contradict itself. The trees for shade should be where people are not for separating vehicular traffic. According to you I'll need to be in that narrow median strip for shade. Come on mate! Cheers Directly shading pedestrians is ju...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

The arbours are a waste of time and money. Very little shade. We need as much shade as possible not arty fixtures that hold plants that are hard to water and maintain. Let's be serious! As for the line of trees in the middle of Gawler Place at the intersection of North Terrace what purpose do they ...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

First time I saw a movie there, an undesirable managed to scrounge up enough for a ticket. Management couldn't not sell him one (he was undesirable, but hadn't done anything wrong), but advised us if they were to act up during the movie let them know and they'd evict them immediately. Thankfully we...

[U/C] Re: Renaissance Arcade | 132m | 40 Levels | Realm Apartments

How come that "core" part in the middle is still sticking out at the top? I thought there would have been some extra floors to cover that up by now. Hi Plasmatron :) The reason the top levels are going so slowly is because the builder can't use their tower crane to construct it. This is thanks to C...

Still doesn't justify extreme costs for a tunnel, nor saving it. If those businesses are relying on one show a week at Thebby to stay afloat, then those owners should either 1) pull their fingers out and build their business presence, or 3) get out of running a business.

Re: Glenelg Ferry & Cruise ship terminal

I think it would be way too expensive to seriously consider, but it's interesting to imagine having the tram go down a pier as part of any massive expansion.

Agreed. Sure there are some 100 year old buildings, if they are that important move them like has been done with other buildings. Otherwise, get the dozer, it's progress time. And you know what? If this kind of thinking were present 1,000/2,000 years ago, those aforementioned structures probably wo...

Bulldoze the Myer centre did I read? Won't happen.A Singaporean investment consortium recently, well in the past couple of years, bought it for around $270 million. It's unfortunate though, because they were talking about turning it into some sort of shopping mecca, re-opening all the closed shops ...
