[U/C] Re: #Vis: Festival Plaza Redevelopment $800m

For that location, I'm hoping that's very much a concept render to show bulk and scaling. I think it's pretty obvious that that's exactly what it is. I expect that it is, but I wouldn't say it's obvious. Walker's won the tender as the developer, so it's not your usual tender package concept drawing...

For that location, I'm hoping that's very much a concept render to show bulk and scaling. Last thing you'd want there is the poster child for uninspiring glass boxes.

[COM] Re: #U/C: Victoria Square Upgrade - $24m

Does anyone else have the nagging feeling that the plane trees in the event space are misplaced? I can't help thinking that aesthetically and practically they would have been better planted into the promenade level. Other than that, good to hear the fountain's back up and spouting. I think the firs...

[COM] Re: U/C: 1 King William St | Facade Upgrade | $12m

I've read somewhere that they did it because the original facade wasn't holding up well, so the over-cladding is more there for containment. Doesn't affect questions about their choice of materials, the look they're going for etc., but they didn't just do it to give the building a makeover.

[CAN] Re: PRO: New Courts Precinct | $500m

It's a Court building that, most likely for security reasons, they're not mixing with offices, so I can't see it even going close to 30 levels. They'll build as many as they need with provision for a bit of future-proofing. I'm fine with it being mid-rise, but am holding out hope that we get somethi...

[COM] Re: U/C: Rundle Place | 76m | 15lvls | Retail & Office

Country Road is moving to where Point Zero was opening in May. Really? Wouldn't that be considerably smaller than their current digs on the mall itself (not to mention far less foot traffic)? My guess is that they'll keep the Mall store and hive off a section or a few sections (out of Ladies, Mens,...

Definitely agree with the red bricks along the stairs. They really look out of place and don't even do the job they're supposed to do - tie in the historical elements of the back of the stand - well. They should have left the history to the back and the cricket change rooms and 50 year member areas ...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Trenery (Country Road's more upmarket off-shoot) is opening in one of the vacated spots in Rundle Place. There's also going to be a bakery/cafe concession in the fashion mall.

I really like it too. The de-cluttering of the Mall works really well and even though bins, lights and mobile vendors are still to come in, the improvement really hits you once you leave the new section behind at Gawler Place. The finishes of the pavers and furniture are great and allow the facades ...
