omg the comments on AdelaideNow are annoying me.
Why are there so many people that think we can't build tall because of Earth Quakes??!Have they never heard of Japan or LA? The cities on tectonic plates, not our pissy little fault.
Why do people care if a developer wants to build something that may end up being empty? Why do all the buildings have to be full before building something new? Surely a developer investing $100m in a new building would do market research and the sums before building? Wouldn't a small "glut" of real-estate in the city make it better for businesses and (new) residents.
Why is the Airport such an issue? Other cities seem to handle taller buildings with closer airports. I thought most flights skirt around the CBD also and head more over North Adelaide anyway.
Surely it would not be too hard ( apart from residents complaining ) to make Adelaide CBD a no fly zone?
How does the CBD have any impact on flights based on this map? (Ignoring the scrapped "new flight path").http://resources1.news.com.au/images/20 ... 364433.jpg
