Re: New City Arena

I think it's safe bet that Marshall wanted to tick off the 'vision thing' going into the next election, decided that concert hall wasn't a vote winner, and went with something sportsy. The convention centre has been tacked on to make the economic case (vaguely) more compelling. By the way, Labor's p...

Further comment, it's an unnecessarily large venue for 15,000 capacity (hell, not even Rod Laver Arena is takes up that much square meterage).
Great point. We only need something roughly the size of Perth Arena, which is much more compact than this apparent behemoth.

Re: New City Arena

However, what I now really don't support is a big open railyard not being covered by this new stadium. My main support originally was the subversion and hiding of the railyard in keeping with the pattern presently of convention centres etc. I agree with this. On first glance, I didn't realise where...

Re: New City Arena

I'm pleased at least the idea of combining soccer with court sports has been nixed. A larger soccer stadium could be built instead on the Entertainment Centre site in the medium term. In this riverbank location, I would like to a see aquatic sports facility but I welcome the arena. Still hopeful tha...

Let me guess. Further dumbing down of materials? It's mostly exactly the same, except for this disagreeable little tidbit: the visibility of condenser units located on balconies, noting the previously submitted details considered bird proofing mesh and exterior louvres to assist in concealing air c...

[APP] Re: 51 Pirie Street | 94m | 21 Levels | Hyatt

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 gett...

[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...

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...

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.

But community space is a much better outcome of the new one. In fact a few residents protested their disapproval on 7News tonight. T...
