[APP] Re: PRO: CNR North TCE & Stephens PLC | 83m | 21 levels | Mi

Asian fast food joint Bing Boys is opening up next door to Subway on Rundle Street. Pressed Juices has also opened up at 231 Rundle Street in what used to be a handbag store.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

the saddest thing about these photos is the loss of all of those wonderful old churches with their large bell towers and spires. such a pity so many of them were demolished/destroyed.

[CAN] Re: PRO: 135 South Terrace | 45m | 13 Levels | Apartments

One would hope that planning approval would not even be considered for such an obviously disgusting building. Very clearly needs to be smaller to have any hope of looking ok. i disagree with this. why not capitalise on the spectacular unbroken views over the parklands and beyond to the hills? south...

Sounds like he wants to Americanize us. Look at cities like Dallas, Houston, Salt Lake City, Oklahoma City, etc on Google Maps - with a few exceptions, most American cities gave in to the car with useless public transport, freeways and bypasses, and flattened buildings for parking. As a result ther...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

The old Commonwealth Bank on corner of Pulteney Street and Rundle Mall appears to be converting into a resturant / cafe, by the looks of it - called BYNK or something like that? It will be an outlet for online fashion retailer FSHN BNKR I believe. Good to see that corner being used for something mo...
