Here's a mock-up of a future Currie Street...mind the perspectives of course.

[U/C] Re: 11 Frome Street | 135m | 37 Levels | Crowne Plaza / Adelaidean | New tallest

[...] Lets just hope that proposal on the corner of King William and Currie Street gets up. I think that'll make a big impact, especially from the North. They'll be the same height at approx. 132 metres each. Westpac has aerials that give it the edge, I think up to 135 metres, but it is possible th...

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Moving tennis centres is without precedent in Australia. Melbourne relocated tennis from Kooyong to Melbourne Park in the late 1980s since there is not enough space at Kooyong to expand further. Sydney relocated it's tennis centre from White Park to Homebush for the 2000 Olympics. In addition, Bris...

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

I think the Memorial Drive site could be used to build a new 25000-30000 seat rectangular stadium to maximise use and legacy of the Riverbank precinct, bringing higher capacity crowds closer to the city centre. To allow for more space and vibrancy, parts of Montefiore Rd and maybe War Memorial Driv...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Lastly, the planes they’ve ordered (A321XLR) won’t get them to Melbourne or Sydney, perhaps Perth. How about Adelaide with a Christmas Island fuel stop? That would get the required range down to something that lots of aircraft could manage. Then the question is, why not stop in Kuala Lumpur, Singap...

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

True. But imo, we should have two indoor arenas, a larger one and a smaller one, and several outdoor courts capable of being used as part of an international tournament. These indoor arena facilities aren't used merely for tennis or basketball or netball, but concerts and other types of events. The...

I haven’t seen the masterplan so have no idea where the roof can be reused, however if you use your imagination what’s already been done can easily be part of a redeveloped stadium. Said it before, they can dig one or two levels down, add an underground carpark if they want or just have a sunken ce...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

probably not the thread for it but im skeptical of such immense and quick growth. this happened with Malaysia and indonesia and that didn't end well. Too many people rushed through pilot school to get the numbers up. Hopefully they learn from past mistakes. It would have more to do with standards a...

this building is truly amazing. Driving past it on the weekend around sunset it was glowing gold. We need more of this style glass. Since it is mirrored glass won't it reflect light onto the Playhouse and the plaza? Cheers Maybe sunrise but not sunset. Doesn't it face north and in low winter sunlig...

Re: New Adelaide public transport hub

I understand that, but my point is they're not suited nor needed in Adelaide. Better, though mostly inessential, would be a system of ground level arcades. I’m not certain it matters whether the connections are “ground level” or “below ground” if they are designed well. The Philadelphia video above...

Re: New Adelaide public transport hub

There is currently undercover/indoor pedestrian access from stepping off the train to the north side of Hindley Street. Ideally, this should continue under Hindley Street through to an underground/indoor bus station on Currie Street that includes a stop for every route that goes through (is that si...

Re: New Adelaide public transport hub

It's a shame we're not preparing to build underground rail soon as there's a perfect opportunity to design a Victoria Square/Central Market station with the upcoming arcade redevelopment. Not saying there should be an underground station in Victoria Square, there are many alternatives available to ...

Re: New Adelaide public transport hub

With the Australia Post site on West Terrace / Grote Street up for sale, Renewal SA should buy out the site and make a mixed use development out of it similar to what they did at Bowden. A provision could be made for a West Terrace station as part of the CBD loop. Perhaps or a tram. Remember that t...
