1402RepliesWell you'll always hear the guys over at railpage complaining about how Adelaide Station has been ruined. For the most part I agree, but in a way the old station did need a interior redesign. Even now it still does, the capacity of the station during peak hour is pathetic. Balconies on the building would make it even worse. At least the exterior of the building has remained largely untouched after the redevelopment of the area in the late 1980s. It isn't often in Adelaide that there are old...Last reply by EBG in CBD Development 2 hours ago
134RepliesNew plan has been submitted to the DAC. Will be a nice cluster once complete. My only concern is I believe the developer is Tangcheng. Known for lots of proposals (of low quality) and then selling off the land. I don't believe they have actually ever built anything in Adelaide. Description of Proposed Development: Demolition of existing structures and construction of a multi-storey mixed-use building comprising two towers, one at 20 storeys and the other at 17 storeys; with a...Last reply by EBG in CBD Development 2 hours ago
322RepliesThe Clipsal site is now officially on sale. Visit http://www.clipsalsiteforsale.com for more details. This is likely to be the location of Adelaides first true TOD.

1886Repliesgreat idea about Leigh St As for Gouger Street, the roadway needs major streetscaping. For a 1 laned, cafe and restaurant street, its ruled by cars. End the 45 degree carparks, narrow the roadway and increase the width of the footpaths. Gouger Street has way more potential than a car traffic funnel that it currently is Both Rundle and Gouger suffer from having a...Last reply by Nathan in CBD Development 3 hours ago
19RepliesWow this one is out of the blue ... it's an idea certainly worth further investigation. The MONA gallery in Hobart has helped put it on the tourist map, and the Louvre annex gallery in Lens, France has done a similar thing also for that small city (Lens has population of 450,000 and in the heart of the poorest region of France). These are other examples of the so-called "Bilbao effect" of contemporary art galleries helping to revitalise struggling cities. So why not Adelaide? No...Last reply by Norman in CBD Development 7 hours ago

Fullarton Living Choice - SWP
Written by Howie Thursday, 10 February 2011 08:34
AG has noted that demolition has commenced on the site of Fullarton Living Choice. Approval was granted in December for a retirement village to accommodate up to 333 residents in across two four storey buildings.
Residents appear to be glad to see the former Julia Farr building, which has fallen into disrepair, demolished.
Here's a render of the development posted by Wayno in December last year.
