[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

I'm not saying the concept design for the square is by any means exceptional, or that it can't be improved, but consider me really bloody sceptical of Walker Group's intent here. It strikes me as an exercise of shifting goal posts and passing bucks -- specifically, the supposed 'costs blowouts', iss...

Didn't manage to grab a photo but these two look very tall from the bottom-end (south) of Lefevre Tce.

I hope it's just a primer -- the cream/manila colour suits this building.

Re: New Adelaide public transport hub

I don't think anyone's suggesting a literal loop -- the weight of opinion is clearly for through-running. 'Loop' is just useful shorthand. But if we're going to go to the expense of undergrounding rail, it makes sense to extend the catchment east as well as south (with stations in the vicinity of Hi...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

Just on city laneways, it appears the proposal to cover Moonta St Chinatown has (thankfully) morphed into a proposal for an artwork/lighting canopy. https://ehq-production-australia.imgix.net/bf1617ff5a7b9270c08f0b05c4d27a6d0180a752/projects/images/000/050/587/original/191029_Moonta_Street_Image_sm....

Dr Marten's opened on Gawler Place today in the Edments Building (in the tenancy next to where Monday's was).

Meanwhile, Oxfam Shop has closed on Charles Street.

I was under the impression that the desalination plant had its own solar panel array on site that it uses to power the plant.

It has one but it's nowhere near enough energy to power the plant.

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

I hope it doesn't end up like the old AON centre on Pirie St, which been peeling since its original blue panels were painted a ubiquitous charcoal earlier this year. Ben took this photo in June and it has gotten much worse since then: http://www.sensational-adelaide.com/forum/download/file.php?id=76...

Re: Beer Garden

It's an ok idea so long as it's not a diminution of South Australia's entitlements or at our cost (i.e. it remains SA's water security safeguard not substitute and the Commonwealth pays). But it's really just another diversion from the real issue that needs to be tackled, which is overallocation in ...

There still should be a lift motor over run and a roof feature to come, which should add more final height.

Once cleaned up it should look even better!
Wasn't the lift stuff in the basement for this build?

Re: News & Discussion : New Restaurants, Bars & Night Clubs

I wonder if this is the same Palm Springs concept as was announced 1-2 years ago? I assumed it had been abandoned.
