Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

The Myer Centre should be knocked down and rebuilt with retail and eateries on ground level, London Tavern on second floor with balcony, then floors of offices/apartments/hotel rooms on levels above. If Big W did move into mall it should be a combined Woolworths , Big W store. I remember a restaura...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

That would be a perfect use of the space, something that brings people into the mall and the way the building is setup it would have good visibility. I think this is a better fit for (and only way to save) the upper levels of the Myer Centre. A walk around the bigger city shopping precincts would p...

:lol: :lol: Kyren's buildings are all bland but good ole Samaras seems to be the only one with any balls erecting towers. Wait 'til the student accommodation tower is built. It most probably will take the spotlight. As for Realm, that too is nothing special. Simple building with a wavy form thanks ...

Been saying this all along about the design, so I'm past that stage of caring. What I'm more shock by is how they've even half arsed the design elements on the podium that were what gave this building any hope of not being a towering pile of nothing.

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Harris Scarfe has gone into voluntary administration but will keep trading through at least Christmas while they look for a buyer. Have to say, the city store looks completely dead whenever I happen to go into it. Aside all the other challenges for retail atm and department stores in particular, I ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

It's a no from me. A big, fat, whopping no. This kind of proposal should not even be entertained - in any form. The Crows are a private entity. Private entities have no place in the Parklands. The Parklands are a public asset to be enjoyed by all people. So I guess you're opposed to the Casino expa...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

Open tender ? Like any offer outside the crows would give a toss what the council or the local nimbys want. Council doesn't want to run it maintain it or spend money on it then it should shut the Fuck up The council will always own the land Any use of it will be as a lease It's the best deal they'r...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

Love the design, love the fact that this portion of the parklands will be maintained by the AFC (so it'll actually be green) and will likely see some SANFL games played there. Hate the fact that they're basically giving the public one pool to shut them up and taking away an existing multi purpose ce...

As most on here suspected, the former Subway/Krispy Kreme on Rundle Street is being fit out as an OTR Convenience.

Re: News & Discussion : New Restaurants, Bars & Night Clubs

Popular Unley Road cafe 'A Mother's Milk' will be opening a second cafe under the same branding at 255 Pulteney Street (opposite side of the laneway to the proposal Sky Adelaide apartments). This part of Pulteney Street has really started to come together since construction of the new hospital got u...

How do we know this is 135m? I thought the actual height hadn't been confirmed?
We don't. As per always, some over eager knob has presumed the height in all of their excitement. They've probably already added it to the 'Tallest Building's in Adelaide' Wikipedia page as well...

[PRO] Re: Central Market

Going against the grain here, because there has to be at-least one person who is critical of these proposals (even if the do look pretty good). It is an incredible design and proposal but the airspace is way too tall considering what it's next to, for instance, the upper part of the podium takes awa...

Those red gums really do look shabby.
I'm usually all for preserving trees but there is no uniformity to any of the trees along this section of the river. Not like it use to be with the oak trees that once lined the banks.
