1163RepliesThese are going up in all the mainland capitals. Just looks like some big advertising screen. Might add some much needed flashiness to the west end of the mall - the Myer Centre killed that. http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b318/chrismicik/cx.jpgLast reply by Brando in CBD Development 2 hours ago
864RepliesIf worse comes to worst, seeing as this project actually appears to have two 'towers', the taller southern building and the shorter northern setback, maybe it would be logical to proceed with one or the other, and hold off on the other section until market conditions improve or a substantial pre-commitment is issued to warrant its construction? Using this and the subdivision of office space like AoP would probably help this one move along in its current...Last reply by Wayno in CBD Development 8 hours ago

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.

Vibrant Adelaide - Historic Changes to Adelaide CBD
Last Updated on Tuesday, 27 March 2012 14:27 Written by Howie Tuesday, 27 March 2012 10:22
At 1pm today Minister John Rau announced significant reforms to the Adelaide City development plan.
The key reforms are :
Unlimited Height for parts of the CBD (CASA Aviation Limits Permitting)
Significant Height Increases throughout the rest of the CBD
*Much* Faster approval times
Recognise signficances of streetscape
For full list see the release below.. or join the discussion on the forum.
Here is the topology of the proposed changes.
This is also a workflow diagram for the new DA approval process (this process could take 180 days under the current system).
This comes shortly after the announcement of a new City Design Review Panel to assess all development applications before the DAC.
We anticipate there will be more announcements in the days to come. This is truly an exciting time to be in South Australia.
We'll continue to bring you the latest on this developing story as details come to light.
