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...

Re: Tunnel under the airport ASAP!

It's worth noting that any talk of culvertisation of Keswick Creek need pay heed to broader plans of Brownhill-Keswick Creek stormwater project -- not that this would rule it out, but there's already considerable expense upgrading the catchment.

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

I think you could argue the Entertainment Centre has as good or better public transport connections than Adelaide Oval -- it's physically closer to both the tramline and railway as well as key bus routes. I am not sure if your comment is sarcasm or if you are serious? If serious, what are you smoki...

Pulled a few more shots from the devapp that show just how unsympathetic its massing is to the context, particularly Parliament House.

Re: [VIS] New Concert Hall

Finally had a look through the devapp documents for the Walker tower, and found another little easter egg that seems to confirm the government's intention for a concert hall at AFC: Screen Shot 2020-11-16 at 10.49.13 am.png This follows from the St Peter's Cathedral vision that accidentally leaked t...

This vision is practically dead.

[...] If the freemasons building was fixed up and had a modern glass tower on top, would not strike anyone as being Adelaide imo. My same thoughts. That Wilson car park is horrendous and has to go pronto. Cheers It's a shame the collapse of higher education funding probably means UoA's plans for a ...

It will certainly end up a b grade cafe area and the tower will probably never happen Sent from my SM-A515F using Tapatalk The tower will definitely get built. It's a great piece of land for a commercial tower being gifted, and getting this plaza built is the price being paid. We're really only get...

You can see this poking up on the skyline from the Torrens Weir now. The skyline from that vantage has completely changed in the last 5 years, and still with 203 North Terrace to come.

Anyway back to this development. The Market pharmacy has closed and relocated across the road on Gouger. The Honey Shoppe has relocated and opened in the mall linking the markets to china town.

Thanks for the update Norman. Do you have a link to the file? As for the changes, I'll concede the appearance of the ground level interface of both the tower and retail space is marginally better, but I resent that they've done this by stealing not just more public space but landscaped public space....

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

The city council hasn't had power over developments of this scale for many years. They're assessed by an 'independent' state commission. Ah I see, excuse my Victorian ignorance here. To further my ignorance here, has this body been a difficult road block in the way of larger developments? As an int...
