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

Application was lodged on the 23rd December for stage 1 - demolition so looks like this one is definitely going ahead and sooner rather than later although no tenants have closed up yet from what I can tell. Vegetarian Delight in the food court has said they will be closed from 15th Feb due to the ...

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

Oh shutup. Everyone is still learning about how to navigate COVID. There's bound to be some mistakes along the way, and we can only learn from them. Spurrier has done an exemplary job given the circumstances. Exactly. Little mistakes have been made along the way for sure, but overall they've done a...

Re: News & Discussion: Cycling

Money can spent a lot better investing in this, roads are for cars not Tour De France wannabes Roads are for whatever mix of traffic is deemed most appropriate to allow people to move around effe...

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

Well, well, well.... SA Health said yesterday that the virus broke out at Peppers due to poor ventilation at the hotel. Interesting that the government aren't prepared to use the old Wakefield hospital due to poor ventilation however it's fine to use Peppers as a medi hotel which also has poor vent...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

They should name and shame the businesses threatening to sue council over the provision of on street car parking, so that I and everyone I know can avoid ever spending a single cent at their business. Sadly the law firms which would make those threats would probably also be happy to cause difficult...

Escalators might look a bit tacky, but they serve a purpose in helping some people who could have trouble with stairs.

Announced today that positive cases will now be kept in dedicated floors at the Pullman as adapting the Old Wakefield to be suitable was too hard, with concerns over aspects of the space such as air flow. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-12-07/sa-coronavirus-patients-in-quarantine-stay-in-dedicated-...

Re: Coke site owner plans to build $350m biomed precinct

It's got a residential component, lots of workers, and people who need to access medical appointments. In this case carparking on site seems sensible.

But trolling twats like Nort think quarantining people in remote locations, where a breach wont result in a city or state wide lockdown, is a bad idea.
Please show me where I've said that.

Some people have a weird cargo cult mentality to urban planning, where they look at major cities like Sydney and Melbourne and think that since they have skyscrapers we could be like them if we had skyscrapers too. That isn't to say that development shouldn't be encouraged, shiny new buildings on th...

Hotel Room 5 is erm, somewhat interesting. A shower and a shitter with a view of the city's busiest intersection! You would hope the glazing is really good cos I don't think your regular punter on the street wants to see guests doing their private business. I wonder if those rooms would be a fancie...
