[U/C] Re: GPO Exchange | 85m | 22 Levels | Office

The best thing about this building and the forthcoming Westin is that, even though they're not great buildings, they help to block out a collection of worse buildings in the view from Vic Square. Especially City Central Tower 2 (or Ernst & Young building - EY is surely the worst rebrand ever). Yeah...

Re: Crane Counter: CBD 13 | Metro 4| Total 17

Dwell looks horrible. Honestly. You contribute nothing to this forum other than throw-away comments like this. He's right through. It's an absolute eyesore and a disgrace it was even approved in the first place. I'm not denying that, but why? Give us a reason (or 5). He's kinda like the two old dud...

What. Even worse than the podium on Renaissance Arcade? That's pretty shabby.

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

Had beers sitting on Rundle Street today. The tower proper is much better than the podium. Just my opinion. Overall, happy with this being our new tallest 😀 I also enjoy an afternoon beer in the sun on rundle street. Unfortunately this tower is going to block the sun for those sitting on rundle str...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

As usual, no pics from myself. But walked down Pirie Street today. Number 74 has signage and under a full refurb.... 6 or 7 level building, Maras the owner/developer.

Anecdotally I've rarely had a delay at Adelaide, not like other airports.
Had a couple with Jetstar here.
Yep I've had a few with Jetstar, the last one travelling to Sydney a few months ago. Granted, I got delayed on the return trip a few days later.

This one seems very promising that it will end up looking as good, if not better than the renders 😎

I'm pretty sure we're getting an NRL state of origin game next year, and a Bledisloe game in next couple years. It doesn't get any bigger than that.

[APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

I'm not qualified to talk about good or bad design. But there are things that annoy me, like the back of the Western Stand, there is one small set of stairs to exit from, which leads you to a completely full plaza that has no easy way of clearing. I've never seen anything like it anywhere else on a...

Re: SA Economy

I've said it before. But I really do believe if it wasnt for the State Bank collapse and subsequent impact on the State finances and economy, then S.A's population would now be at least 2 million. I recall reading recently the last year S.A had a net interstate migration increase was 1990.

Re: SA Economy

While it can hardly be called a success, a drop in interstate migration of almost 2000 people between 2017/18 is a step in the right direction. From today's online Advertiser......... "Drop in number of people leaving SA, but growth only half the national rate There’s been a decline in the number of...
