[PRO] Re: 269 North Terrace | ~125m | 34 Levels | student accommodation

Really digging that ground level. Has demand for student accomodation increased so much? There's an awful lot recently built or under construction, and each one is bigger than the last. There's concern by at least one Uni about oversupply in a potentially declining market. About 2000 new beds on th...

[PRO] Re: 23-29 Market Street | 58m | 17 levels | Mixed Use

Hasn't gone to sales/marketing yet.

Site hasn't been listed since approval from what I see, so doesn't look like a flip at this stage.

Wait and see. Really like this one.

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Brilliant news. Can't wait to see the end result! But I'm not looking forward to seeing my bank balance after an afternoon shopping at H&M. 😂 I don't think I've bought clothes anywhere else for the last 3 years. Where I live I'm paying with a 15:1 exchange rate and my wallet still gets slaughtered

[U/C] Re: 27-31 Angas Street | 103m | 30 Levels | Kodo Apartments

Hi all, I am thinking of buying in as an owner-occupier. From what I gather, it seems like a good project talked about a bit, and also more in the residential part of the CBD. I've looked at others such as West Franklin but the surrounds and mixed use is a bit of a turn off. Alto seems a bit the sa...

[PRO] Re: 269 North Terrace | ~125m | 34 Levels | student accommodation

The opposite corner on Frome sold a few months back too, so I imagine a development will be proposed there shortly although due to the irregular shape of the site they may try and get the adjacent site too. Love it. That parcel nestled in with the Alpha Apartments is development gold, but that tiny...

[PRO] Re: 269 North Terrace | ~125m | 34 Levels | student accommodation

Two things come to mind. One it looks like it's torn straight out of Brisbane and put here. Secondly, Frome St is reminding me of Elizabeth St in Melbourne, where in the space of 10 years one side of the street becomes a wall of almost uniform scrapers and balances out the skyline. We really need de...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway Revitalisation Projects

I’ve been thinking about those flaps and I came to this conclusion: Even if you think it's subjectively ugly, we should be encouraging developers to be more daring with their design. Some polarising flaps around the city is a heck of a lot more interesting than the same bland shit we normally get. ...

I'm surprised they didn't add the lighting feature to the Festival Theatre when it was built! It looks great.
Back then the lighting features on theatres were a row of 1,000 incandescent light bulbs

[U/C] Re: [West Franklin] | 54m & 64m | 17 & 20 lvls | Apartments

Except the majority of Galley and Altitude are cheap hotel rooms and large swathes of both buildings are unoccupied at any given time. Oaks have also secured a chunk of West Franklin, although I understand much smaller. Hopefully WF can bring a better sense of residency and community to the area wi...

[U/C] Re: [West Franklin] | 54m & 64m | 17 & 20 lvls | Apartments

To think there's a third tower to the north of this site. Would have to be Adelaide's densest 'block' once completed in terms of population density? My recollection is the next stage is 2 towers with 300 apartments - slightly more than this stage's 270. Altitude has 150 apartments. The midrise buil...

Mr Scott declined to comment on debts owed by the company and the likely impact on Datong’s 25-storey U2 on Waymouth development. Likely impact? Being dead twice? “We remain confident that Datong will bring the U2 on Waymouth project to fruition. We hope to share some good news on this front in the...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway Revitalisation Projects

Thanks Norman for the above update - really accurate. One thing I've often thought is that when a street or laneway is upgraded, there's often a lot of fanfare - sometimes in the case of Bank Street rightly so - it looks great. However not all streets in Adelaide necessarily need really expensive g...
