[PRO] Re: 399 King William Street | ~52m | 16 Lvls | Mixed

At least it's not another sheer expanse of precast concrete. What do you think the northern facade will be? Valid fear. With the size of the site I wouldn't expect any fenestration, though I do think our development plan should require some interest or public art to be incorporated into any visible...

[PRO] Re: 399 King William Street | ~52m | 16 Lvls | Mixed

I’m real. I’m real because I’ve spent the last oh I don’t know ten to fifteen years looking forward to the change and development this city has been longing for, only to see a lot absolute crap get built. Adelaide isn’t a city where a bad development is hidden by many good ones or a one where it’ll...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

Sorry I don’t mean to thread bump but as an expat based based in London I don’t know if anyone wandering through Bank St, Gawler Place or Topham Mall north could take a few pictures? Really keen to see how all the greenery has developed the last couple of years since the lane way upgrades. Hopefull...

I know that capital works are on hold for the foreseeable future at UoA, but just came across this masterplan fly-through with some pretty stunning visualisations of how much impact this would have on the city if/when realised:

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Where would you envisage the buses running into/through ARS on a dedicated corridor? After Torrens junction I suppose you could theoretically replace the OH lines with a guided busway but where to after that? The only realistic place I can see for buses to drop off and turn around again would be th...

[APP] Re: 145-159 King William Street (GPO) | 61m | 16 Levels | Westin Hotel

Despite the COVID challenges to tourism, Adelaide is still underserved by the big international hotel chains. I wonder if part of their calculation is to get ahead of the proposals by competitors Hyatt Regency and Wyndham.

[PRO] Re: 156-172 Franklin Street, Adelaide | 53m | 16 levels | Loft apartments

[...] If you were an Altitude apartment owner, you probably would've preferred the previous design in retrospect given this new one will now block views to the south. But community space is a much better outcome of the new one. In fact a few residents protested their disapproval on 7News tonight. T...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

Massive improvement. Thanks for the photos Andy. I had a walk through the area the other day and it's looking good, particularly the station concourse. I am concerned about insufficient/lazy landscaping on Station Road but, in my reading of the plans, there should be more to come. You'd hope at the ...

Anyone got on any tips on new tenants for City Cross? They've been doing seemingly substantial internal works in the tenancy next to the Rebel escalator.

The new application is for 16 levels. Mixed use office and service apartments. Maybe another quest?
Quest no longer seem to operate in the T&G Building, so they might well be looking for more apartments -- although there's already the proposal at 98-100 North Terrace.

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

I think it's an impressive design from a monumental standpoint. But it's not particularly iconic. It reads more as generic modern than something inspired by vernacular architecture -- the wurley reference seems like a post-rationalisation rather than a starting point. Still, this is only conceptual,...
