Re: A little help? Regarding renting an apartment in Adelaide

Good location but I think for the money you could do better. Best bet is to compare with the real estate sites jimmy mentioned.

[COM] Re: #Proposed - Edge (416-420 KWS) - 11 Levels - 40m

These people aren't actually interested in Heritage. This is not a heritage issue. They just see heritage as something to give them leverage in their complaint. I think the credibility of the heritage movement suffers because whenever someone wants to stop a development they pull out the heritage ca...

Re: Transport SA possibly relocating to CBD?

If they are looking for a custom made development the project is likely to take a few years to complete. It would be great to see a new NAB as their recent building in Docklands is very impressive. If they take the same care with a new building in Adelaide it would be a welcome addition to our CBD. ...

[COM] Re: #Proposed - Edge (416-420 KWS) - 11 Levels - 40m

It amazes me that people don't check the Development Plan when they buy a property. If this development is within the development plan the cottage owners should have realised that such a development was possible and as such took the gamble that it wouldn't happen. You win some you lose some. If the ...

Re: New Development in Park Holme!

The Development plans are the problem. In response to the plague of virtually identical cream brick flats that overtook the inner suburbs a couple of decades ago most council's took the easy option and changed their development plans to make semi-detached (duplexes) the most compact development poss...

Re: City Central - Latest News

While most of the designs look nice I dont really like the idea of having an entire city block with all glass buildings - too repetitive for me, and especially if they all have that green glass that is used on CC1, and from my understanding CC2. ( The existing buildings on that block such as GPO & ...

Re: The Missing Piece/s

It has reopened since Urban. It was a way of JamFactory decreasing their financial burden in the short term. They just didn't take into account the associates that were there at the time. It basically put us out on the street. I have been back since and the studio is going from strength to strength...

Re: State Budget 2007

A project with the budget and location of Holdfast Shores should have won numerous state and possibly national architecture awards. How many awards did it pick up? The same mistakes happen over and over, good opportunities keep getting 1/2 hearted efforts. The difference between Melbourne and Adelai...

Re: The Missing Piece/s

Disappointing to hear the furniture studio has shut down. Many great designers have gone through that studio. Adelaide used to have a thriving furniture design industry, probably the best in Australia. If you see funky 60's or 70's furniture in 2nd hand stores have a look at the bottom and you will ...

Re: State Budget 2007

Holdfast shores did not have heritage issues. It's issues were - use of public land for private use; - environmental damage to the beach; - access between public reserve and beach blocked - Bland design; - poor connection between active frontages and pedestrian paths. The project would have actually...

Re: State Budget 2007

Heritage does generate investment and jobs. Studies have shown that for every dollar of assistance provided by Govt's for heritage, private investment matches it with 2. Creative societies find ways to adapt their heritage buildings and make them part of everyday life. In Europe you see McDonalds in...

The small projects I suggested above have the greatest potential for true collaboration between artists, designers and architects. These types of public projects increase general awareness of art and help to educate. As people become aware they are more likely to purchase custom designed pieces for ...

[COM] Re: $1.7bn plan to build a new RAH

Also naming the road bridge "The Mary Mackillop Bridge" is also stupid seeing as she had nothing significant at all to do with the history of Port Adelaide in any shape or form. yeah she set up schools in other areas of adelaide but never Port Adelaide. And for the record she was born in Victoria A...
