[U/C] Re: 11 Frome Street | 135m | 37 Levels | Crowne Plaza / Adelaidean | New tallest

I was in Adelaide this past couple of days and had the chance to see this in person, as someone who has been highly critical of the final product, photos don't do it justice, it does look better in person. That said, the closer you get to the building, the more the glass disappoints. But from afar i...

[U/C] Re: SkyCity Adelaide Casino Expansion | 55m | 12 Levels | Hotel

Trust me, I have nothing nice to say about the ASER developments (Intercon, Riverside, fmr plenary building) nor the row of mediocre in the near section of North Tce. My concern is, yes, for the railway building but particularly the Festival Centre. The hotel will impede vistas of the Dunstan Playh...

[U/C] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

What's the deal going to be with the naming for all of this? Is each of the individual stretches of the north-south corridor that are already named going to keep their name? I know that Darlington will simply become an extension of the Southern Expressway, but up north you have the Northern Expressw...

[U/C] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

With bits of MATS basically built in some form or another, most of the rest should be built in some form or another as well. A second motorway/freeway running north/north east should be built, as the northern suburbs will be where most of our new population growth will happen and it's too wide of a...

Hopefully unique artworks. We also want an iconic building. Perhaps with Aboriginal influence in ...

Not in Adelaide at the moment, would anyone be about to do a run-by photo grab of the upgraded track and stations? :D

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

I'm still of the opinion that Rundle Road should be closed and Rymil and Rundle Park(s) merged and a two lane road connecting Grenfell Street with Rundle Street east (either side of the O-Bahn tunnel). I think the argument that taking away Rundle Road and its parking would kill trade for the area ca...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

So essentially the S/E Freeway would be diverted and extended? With that last little bit of the existing freeway (by the toll gate) just becoming an access road for traffic coming off of Cross and Portrush Road(s)?

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Waewick wrote Unless we get China money there will never be a decent train system in Adelaide. Its too easy to kill on economics. Like the tram system, the train system doesn't service the densely populated parts of Adelaide so it'll never get the patronage. Adelaide will never get a decent train s...

[U/C] Re: 11 Frome Street | 135m | 37 Levels | Crowne Plaza / Adelaidean | New tallest

Given Adelaidean and Realm are fairly set back in this airport view is it likely they may not appear in line with Westpac building when completed? Or is the ground slightly higher. Have marked up a red line where I thought they may top out around. Adelaide is a relatively flat isn't it? So wouldn't...

27/7/2019Work progressing on Adelaide south Stop in king William S traffic will be reduced to 2 lanes only with right hand turns only permitted at selected intersections and the loss of parking. As it should, aside from the reduction in right hand turns, I've never understood why this portion of KW...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Rossi's proposal wasn't to use the existing Freight corridor but rather to build a viaduct from Mitcham Station through Brown Hill Creek and connect it with the freeway and run if down the centre. This is a point I was advocating for only a few pages back and was told that this kind of proposal wasn...

Heard on the grape vine last week that the entire Aldinga extension is dead in the water, state and fed not interested in funding it Contemptible if true. Not surprised, there are higher priorities for our rail networks and buses services the area from Seaford to Aldinga just fine. Besides, did any...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

I give it six months at the most. Why the centre management would allow a food-court-esque type shopfront to exist in the retail section of their centre is beyond me.
