Re: Beer Garden

Chinese students studying here then returning to China could be just as much Australian influence on future China as it is Chinese influence on Australia.

The Nth Adl concept is so good
It looks like a good use for a long-empty site, and the height is commensurate with the buildings only a block or two to the south.

[U/C] Re: 11 Frome Street | 138m | 37 Levels | Crowne Plaza / Adelaidean | New tallest

Wonder why there's such a stink about the height for this being updated on Wikipedia. Someone changed the InterContinental to 91m without any source whatsoever when Emporis states it's 87m. That page is also missing West Franklin if anyone feels like adding it. How reliable is Emporis, and where do...

Re: Beer Garden

Bold prediction: in three weeks' time, SA will begin to see the end of the virus. How are you defining that? New cases will be in single digits at most. I just feel that we've got it not so bad here in SA. As long as we keep borders closed, keep recovery internalised and everyone does the right thi...

[PRO] Re: 14° South | Noarlunga Centre

What is the meaning of "14° South" rather than named for the mayor, or just Noarlunga Centre?

The scale is not out of place nowadays, but the helipad certainly is.
I am not as upset by the helipad as it appears that some people are, but I don't think it's necessary either. It sounds more like a vanity project than anything practical.

https://www.saplanningportal.sa.gov.au/public_register#view-4599-LUA Can someone use this as the source to edit to the new height in the wiki. I’m not sure how. Maybe I am tired or thick, but does that indicate the current height? I can find that it received approval for an increased height of the ...

Re: Crane Counter: CBD 8 | Metro 4| Total 12

A picture of the completed crane on North Tce. For entertainment, the full version of that one is upside down :-) If you aren't doing anything at upload time, I wonder if your camera/phone is doing something not-quite-standard, as I'd expect Firefox, Chrome and Edge to be more compliant with standa...

Re: Crane Counter: CBD 8 | Metro 4| Total 12

If you use Chrome as your browser photos come out rotated through 90 degrees yet if you use internet explorer they remain correct. This has something to do with how Chrome interprets portrait pictures by trying to transfer them to landscape pictures. Firefox, Chrome and Edge display the thumbnails ...

Re: Major construction & supply chains?

Hi, so, I have no real idea about the logistics of a major construction project, but was curious how dependent are they on outside supply? Practically, if SA keeps constructions sites open, i.e. as long as the state gov doesn't shutdown non-essential work, can companies actually complete the projec...

Re: Beer Garden

Apples and oranges. One is a state controlled entity that was orderesld to do it, the other is a private corporation. China also refused US assistance. Of course, only radical communists in SA who support the communist Chinese dictatorship would be supportive and think the better move is to raid ot...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

Team Adelaide is mostly Liberal-aligned. The rest are mixed. Simms is obviously a former Greens senator, and we all know Moran to be conservative-leaning. But, of course, municipal politics in this state is supposed to be non-partisan... So Team Adelaide reflects the current "will of the people" ac...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

Do "Team Adelaide" and "Team not-Adelaide" align to state political parties in any way, or are they across state politics with their own arbitrary divisions?

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Lots of routes will disappear. Other routes will be dramatically changed. Also quite a few through routing changes. Total new Route numbers for majority of routes. The 44x, 45x and 46x routes sound fairly much as they are now. Doesn't seem to be a significant change in the coverage area for new dev...
