Re: Official Crane Counter Thread: CBD: 9 | Metro: 3 | Total

I've heard it is the developer of 400 KWS & 70 Franklin St, both of which went up quickly.

Re: Official Crane Counter Thread: CBD: 9 | Metro: 3 | Total

Given the track record of the developer, I would say that 102 Wakefield St is more likely to see a crane later this year than Kodo, West Franklin, New Mayfield, Lester, One Adelaide or Palladium.

[COM] Re: 413 KWS Vue on King William | 89m | 28Lvl | Residential

My guess is that this was the Architect's original selection for the entire building but the cost manager and developer drove a change to the cheaper brown cladding & glazing (and the visible a/c units). Bronze glass is very expensive.

Definitely hasn't gone to Hansen Yuncken. Haven't heard who has actually got it but mgb is probably correct.

Re: News & Discussion: Road Issues & Traffic Congestion

Let's say we register cyclists, shouldn't we also register scooters because the scooters aren't much of a step away from bikes. Now that we've registered cyclists and scooters there's not much difference between scooters and skateboards and roller skates so perhaps we should register them as well. N...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

People do actually live in the West, even quite close to Grange Rd. I've heard that some of them actually like living there! I try to avoid the place myself. A tram to The Parade would suit me better personally. The uplift in PT use by a tram down Grange Rd would be much greater than The Parade or B...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

The reason they want to run the tram to Coopers Stadium is that it can be the first step in extending the tram down Grange Road which is a wide road corridor which has plenty development sites crying out for medium to high density infill. Unlocking this potential will give the govt much greater retu...

I'd say we need two 50m+ buildings on the blocks between Sturt and Wright or Halifax and Carrington for the gap to finally be bridged.
There are some on the drawing board. Expect them to be announced in the next few months.

[CAN] Re: #U/C: The Precinct - 5 x 18 lvl - 58m towers

The interface with Franklin St is a blank 1.8m high concrete wall with a 1m high glass balustrade attached. A 2.8m high impervious barrier broken only by a 1.5m wide set of stairs is almost as far from an active frontage as you can get. This is probably the worst treatment of a major street frontage...

This building and 42 Franklin St are vying for Origin as their major tenant. Whichever building wins will proceed in current form or higher. The other will be put on hold or drastically reduced in scale.

Re: #Proposed: Buckland Park Development

Am I the only one to whom this development screams 'Monarto'? This sounds like a '70s urban planner's wet dream, and I for one don't like the idea of the poor souls stuck out there gasping for air amidst all that utopian pre-planned backslapping raining down on them. It's rather chilly out on this ...
