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

Not that there was much doubt, but the "maybe the beautiful dark reflective glass is covered with protective backing" theory can be safely put to rest by the clearness of those windows on the westerly side of the south facing podium, where we can see the light from other windows behind shining throu...

Lol the “thin building on Bank Street” is a good piece of modernist architecture, sadly it hasn’t been very well maintained. I'm sure that this 2 star budget hotel will be well maintained. I guess they have their place like any big/ growing city Sent from my SM-J730G using Tapatalk I didn't say the...

It looks way too much like the thin building on Bank Street... Which is bad.

Re: Southbank 356m & 252m $2 billion

Normally I'm very dubious of renders that have such prominent greenery, but given the prominence of this site it's not unreasonable to expect the final result might actually do it justice.

Oh yeah, nice one. I really like how it has windows n stuff.

Surely not a serious proposal?
We have have a few on the eastern wall... what type of twilight zone is this?
There's no windows on the eastern wall due to the neighboring site.

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

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Walker responsible for developing the tower, car park and retail and the government responsible for the open plaza areas? Could the landscaping in the new tower/retail render just be generic, even though in the past the render has included the plaza designs we've ...

I still think that that along with China Town, there should be a Little Italy, a Greek Town, Thai & Indian areas..all fronting onto Gouger street. Then within the complex it self have other lesser represented ethnic cuisines. Like a giant global foods market. Is there anywhere in Australia with a h...

[U/C] Re: Renaissance Arcade | 132m | 40 Levels | Realm Apartments

Phantom, if the building isn’t built to the approved plans (and if picked up) it may stop it getting certified and occupied (ie no certificate of completion/occupation given). Potentially it could mean the buyers don’t/can’t settle and it could send the developer broke. Trying to get insurance for ...

Re: Beer Garden

Adelaide definitely needs a world-class rectangular stadium. No ifs or buts. I think most here on this forum agree. The location could be the SA Athletics Stadium, but it would be sad to see that go as many use it including schools. I think the best bet is the netball stadium next door. Raise that ...

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

It's an ok building for somewhere else, but in this location it has zero response to its location. I see it as pretty analogous to the Brisbane Square building, which I don't much rate, but at least respect the attempt they've made to do something interesting at plaza level. It seems barely conside...

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

if that's the newest render then it looks like the interesting trellis structures have been turned into basic trees.

Further reinforces the idea that they are just trying to make as much money from the space as they can.

Compare that to this:
