Re: Geelong Victoria Developments

Not really. From memory, an express service between Adelaide and Gawler took about 45 minutes, while the express between Southern Cross and Geelong takes about 53 minutes. An all-stop serice between Adelaide and Gawler is about 55 minutes, while Melbourne to Geelong all stops takes 1 hour and 8 min...

Re: Geelong Victoria Developments

As shown in the image is the 5 stages of the CBD West residential developments. Two of the high-rises seen here have been built. The tallest of the development is 30 storeys and approximately 140m in height, which I'm assuming will give Geelong the tallest skyline outside of the major cities. I thi...

Re: Geelong Victoria Developments

The new GMHBA building on Moorabool St. This building isn't the largest of recent developments in Geelong, but it has a made a huge difference to the low-rise character of the CBD.

Drove past it today, its too big! If it was 20% smaller it wouldn't be as bad.
Too thicc or tall?
Because I thought Adelaide was a major city and a State Capital. 117m is quite tame..
There are high rises in the suburbs of Melbourne and Sydney that are bigger than this.

As well as the general hesitation for developments in the Adelaide CBD. What makes you say that? Most developments that are proposed seem to be approved by SCAP. There is no harm in applying good scrutiny on projects if they don't meet the guidelines, which are already very relaxed. The main issue,...

How is it that other cities are able to have and other developers & architects are able to create tall buildings clad entirely in glass, but we can't do that here? Isn't the Adelaide City Council notorious for keeping Adelaide in the 70's? Here in Melbourne we have the opposite problem, we are ...

On the topic of melbourne, are the construction sites in the Melboune CBD still operating given the covid19 nightmare ?
Yes they are. Source; I live in the Melbourne CBD and can hear the workers talking about footy all day.

Re: Geelong Victoria Developments

The new Civic precinct on Mercer St, due to start construction this year (however Geelong Council is in a questionable state at the moment) My office has done some work on this, pushing for more focus on the public realm. Geelong lacks 'Melbourne' type public spaces, which really isn't helping the c...
