Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

BNKR on the corner of Rundle Mall & Pulteney St is closing once the current lease is up. Apparently going to focus on their online store and wholesale rather than physical stores.

FINALLY https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190218/8551094650baf5b1177d7b31934ee1f8.jpg Not perfect — they should continue the lighting along the river instead of just going to the access road opposite Phillips St, and there needs to be a lit path on the other side of the river along the train lines ...

[COM] Re: Victoria Square Upgrade - $24m

One of the key components with squaring the square was much denser plantings around the perimeter. One of the key issues that Victoria Square has always had is traffic noise, so those plantings in the extra space afforded by reconfiguring the roads would make the square a significantly calmer place ...

I prefer the original render, which had a strong vertical linearity. This version looks unnecessarily busy.

Hooray!

Regarding relaying the tracks, I suppose that means closing the entire network given the location of the depot?

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

Didn't the original proposal for a modern art gallery come from the Art Gallery of South Australia to provide more space for it to display more of its collection and visiting exhibitions, and the proposal for an indigenous culture gallery come from the South Australian Museum so that it could have ...

I've stated before, that the SMA seems to want it's cake and eat it too. They want to compete against other city hotels, but enjoy not having to pay for the land nor council rates like everyone else has to. IMO if they want to pursue this avenue, then they should forgo those concessions. Do you rea...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

That said, it's worth saying that I think the SA Museum and AGSA between them have probably the largest collection of Aboriginal art and artefacts in the world. They also deserve the prominence of a dedicated gallery like that now being pursued. I recall an opinion piece written by a collector who ...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

Probably the case, the State Museum basically has a warehouse of indigenous items. Every new government changes from what the previous one had planned to make their Mark, and as those types of changes go getting a good indigenous art gallery is a great result. The problem is, this plays into the na...
