[U/C] Re: PRO: Adelaide Festival Theatre Redevelopment

Quite a complex idea, but I'd like to see the government buy the InterContinental. Sell both the building + land and the government offices next door to SkyCity and let them use both sites to build whatever casino precinct they please. Then the government can move all offices from the building sold ...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Loving the new interior of the Myer Centre, and the lower levels of the exterior look great (well better) as well. The only let down for me, is the tacky bamboo look treatment between floors in the atrium. Looks completely out of place. Also hope the Myer store itself gets with the program, and get...

Re: Drive to update Memorial Drive tennis hub

Been saying this for years. Rather than doing a patch-up job - how about leveling the whole area (tennis centre and the next generation gym) and building a 14,000 arena next to AO (with surrounding courts) the venue could cater for Basketball, Netball, Tennis and music. Sell the ETSA Park land for i...

[U/C] Re: PRO: SkyCity Adelaide Casino Expansion | $300m

I think Iconic would be the key... Roll out another design competition haha. I am thinking a Federation Square-like design (I know - I hate copy-cats also) but it works well there... Any suggestions for existing buildings as a comparison that would look and work well here? Anything that does exist ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

Maximus, Perhaps my language was more intemperate than usual and for that I apologise - to you and Mayor Clyne but quite frankly I am sick and tired of reading opinion pieces which denigrate the Adelaide City Council's custodianship of the Park Lands, most of which are ill-informed and unfairly cri...

[COM] Re: U/C: Adelaide Oval Redevelopment | 53,500 | $545m

Looks great. Now ditch that thing we call a tennis 'arena', and either move it or rebuild the whole precinct. Should build a new 15,000 arena that ties in with Adelaide Oval and factors in tennis, music, basketball, netball. Similar to Perth Arena, but not as much of a cost blow out. Then we could ...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Quite a cool, hip little warehouse café has opened up on a street running between Waymouth and Franklin Streets (street that Raglans pub is on the corner of). Noticed it as I was walking from work to the markets. Its called Hello, Yes. Quite quirky and interesting, and the coffee was nice too edit ...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

What on earth is a "warehouse cafe"? One thing I can safely predict even though I don't know much about it, is that the coffee is most probably ridiculously overpriced, and the seating area not particularly spacious or comfortable. Not the sort of place I'd go for a coffee, but thankfully there's p...

[COM] Re: U/C: Rundle Mall Redevelopment | $30m

Elms are very boring, ordinary trees. They have their place, of course, out in the parklands. But they are hardly suitable in Rundle Mall, where surely more decorative trees would have been far more appropriate. I'd almost go as far as to say I hope someone does vandalise them, so that maybe they'l...

Those lights on the roof of the Southern Stand look tacky. Sure, works for the Ent. Centre, but purple, pink, etc on a stand that has just below has copper and sand-stone finish? Really?

There's certainly no backwards thinking from me. Actually designing the look of the site before you even know what it will be could be described as backwards thinking! My proposal is that it should be a place dedicated to fun, because South Australia is sorely lacking such facilities. How about a h...
