The internal layout has been completely changed. I doubt the rooms will still look like that.

Has anyone seen the plans as I am curious if there is car parking and/or a drop off/pick up area for taxis/buses/vehicles ie a Porte cochere?
Original design had 3 basement levels which you'd presume was for parking
Yes, vehicle access/drop off was from Gilbert Place. No porte cochère.

The projects Guava Lime have been involved with generally haven't mucked about, so that gives confidence this will get up. The article mentions opening is still four years off, which would seem to suggest this won't start until late next year at the earliest. Could be interesting sight on KWS if Sou...

[PRO] Re: 52-66 King William Street | 65m | 15 Levels | Southern Cross Arcade

Doesn't the old Marrakech Hotel sit between the toilets and the arcade? Looks like it could be disjointed from the rest of the development. I wonder if this is at the request of the developer or if council are just looking to offload the site (given they can't even use the current upper floors). Th...

There's a 'digital arts and culture exhibition' proposed for Victoria Square next winter that is presumably part of this festival: https://yoursay.cityofadelaide.com.au/d ... exhibition

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

Looks like RCC will be returning to Victoria Square after a troubling run at Adelaide Uni. It has different owners to when last in the the square, so I wonder if that's helped overcome the nitpickers among the elected members who chased them out last time. Consultation here: https://yoursay.cityofad...

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

When you look at the new development vs old and no part of it being situated on the corner block anymore, it makes you wonder if there could be something else coming down the track? Is this definitively the final stage? I supposed now that Ben has said so on here, the "journalists" at the advertise...

They've actually done a pretty good job matching the horizontal lines and the size/regularity of the windows in the checkerboard pattern.

I think this is actually pretty good, tbh. I do agree the area has suffered from not being masterplanned (LMA notwithstanding), particularly in terms of height and ground level treatments. Pretty much all the buildings are the same height which IMO makes it lack a bit of visual relief. Credit to thi...

Thanks for the shots.

This one just reminds me how unclear we are about how they intend to resolve the level changes between the bridge, the promenade and the Intercon.

Re: News & Discussion: Cycling

Bike parking is adequate in most areas of the city from my experience. I’d rather not distract from the real issue of a lack of safe and protected routes.

Saw this render on the synergy page. I hadn’t previously seen it before. Interesting but odd find. This doesn't look 15 metres shorter than Adelaidean, especially given the ground level slopes down towards the north. Also, the dev plan really needs to change to force roof top plant rooms to be scre...

Re: I hope everyone is travelling well and getting through this.

I find it funny that this is referred to as the "Parafield Cluster" and not the "Medi-Hotel Cluster" 🤔 I mean, that's where it all started from, isn't it? It's been a very nifty comms strategy from the government designed to make oblique any direct responsibility. See also the stuff around 'superst...
