Re: Commonwealth Games in Adelaide

Hopefully October rather than March! Although the idea of adding a Commonwealth Games into the Mad March pile is quite amusing. :D

The government wont pay for your new family car, or pay for your non-common medical treatment such as IVF. But if you are a migrant from say Bangladesh, they will, and they are.

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

Finish the Victoria Square Master plan first! This council is like a sugared up child, from one project to the next without completing the prior one first. I agree it could be spruced up but $20m is also extensive and excessive (IMO) for that part of the city at this point in time. It's amazing how...

Re: SA Economy

Theyve done nothing to address it. Now they think by opening the flood gates and bringing in 50,000 more foreigners from the third world it will fix things. Instead of creating jobs, new industries to keep our people here, and to draw in people from interstate, our politicians think bringing in mos...

[PRO] Re: 51 Pirie Street | 114m | 28 Levels | Hotel

Unless they are planning something exceptional on the street level it would be a shame to see this go.

Also for a hotel that big, I would hope they don't want to have car access from Pirie Street. I assume vehicle access/parking would be from the carpark to the rear?

We say this a lot but really this is a prime spot for a much taller building as the latest render in context shows. I sometimes wonder if we were more strict on having setbacks whether that would influence taller /more interesting designs. Planning Commission: "You have to build a taller building o...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

I guess the only other available option to make this work is turning it into a one way st. Given you cant even traverse waymouth st from west to east (without detouring around light sq). It will introduce a lot more traffic congestion in the morning if traffic heading to the Topham Mall carpark has...

Also, in terms of the proposed Stolen Generation memorial (and in fact Tandanya), I tend to think this might be better colocated with the forthcoming gallery at Lot 14.
I don't know, I think next to Tandanya is a great spot.

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

The responsibility for planning the route and construction rests with the state government. Federal governments of BOTH persuasions have been begging to throw money at this for years, via infrastructure Australia, and then various pork barrel excercises. The fact that even the final route or method...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

An interesting aside about distracting video display screens. Telstra installed a new pubic phone with Hugh display screen of the footpath outside the Foodland on Glen Osmond rd. They exempted themselves from planning approval. A week later it was removed because it completely blocked the view of o...

Have to wait and see how it turns out, but while not the greatest cladding ever I think it could look decent, almost marble like.

If there are planning on using the airspace above the markets for a couple of towards I wouldn't be surprised to see that.
