[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

The maintenance issue and buck passing between the government and council is pathetic.

There is little point on throwing millions at the Riverbank and leaving the landscaping (and footbridge waterfall) to rack and ruin.

It’s embarrassing.
Someone needs to get a grip and sort it out.

Looking terrific.

Have the powers that be given up on the trickle down waterfall next to the Malt Shovel place?

Likewise the water feature at the end of the footbridge?

This bears very little resemblance to the sparkling “Memorial Drive Arena” Christopher Pyne was dragged out to flog a few years back.

[COM] Re: SkyCity Adelaide Casino Expansion | 55m | 12 Levels | Hotel

I ride past every day. Nothing has been tidied up, and the water features at both ends of the bridge remain off (as they have for a year and a half now). This really is appalling. What’s the point on trying to make this part of the city the centrepiece of Adelaide if the basics like landscaping and...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

It would be nice to see a more panoramic view that shows the tower, perhaps from the riverbank footbridge, to see how it'll look against its surrounds. The full height shot that Walker doesn't really compare the tower to anything. Download and have a look at page 30/31 of the following which was po...

There's an article behind the Tiser paywall if anyone's able to assist.

How many levels are we at with this one? Trying to gauge just how tall it's going to appear compared to the pics.
Looking good.

This pic of the steps and 'water feature' is really disappointing. Whose responsibility is it for the upkeep of the (non existent) plants? Likewise the water cascade and fountain - what happened?! The waterfall off the other end of the bridge, as well as the water feature in the middle of the lake,...

Yep, the cascade water feature, etc, near the footbridge was an absolute state last time I was back. That and the waterfall at the end of the bridge - clogged up with shite and spraying everywhere but down. Couldn’t agree more - why spend the money on these things if you’re going to leave them to ru...

Early days yet. I have never seen such excitement about 1 panel of glass being installed.

Does anyone know when this is expected to be finished ?
