[PRO] [PRO] Re: 1-8 North Terrace | 108m | 2 x 32 Levels | Apartments

A little NIMBY in me has to say "No, you are building into my view...", but practically it might even make my outlook more interesting. Will be interesting to see this one go up. If this project can get up, it will be a welcome boost for the area. West Terrace has been neglected for a long...

Re: Interactive Map of Adelaide CBD Development

Not sure if that has been posted somewhere already, but state government is now providing a 3D map of developments in the metropolitan area:

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

Adelaide will never have a metropolitan mayor, as for all practical purposes we already have one.... the job is grandiosely called state premier, but for all practical purposes it's pretty much being mayor of Adelaide and some handholding of a lot of empty bushland and desert. I mean when the questi...

The difference is the council was the vendor/seller here and had the power to veto/not sell the site unless the development complied with their own guidelines and thus render the DAC powerless. With the previous 15 storey DAC/Makris approval, the council had no say. Further were developers misled b...

[VIS] Re: Masonic Lodge | 60m | 17lvls | Residential

I welcome a building in this location both for the opportunity it presents to restore the heritage building and to block out views to Dwell behind. However, I think the proposed height is probably overambitious, especially considering its only access will be from the very narrow laneways. Do you me...

Not going to happen, but I somehow feel as if that thing needs flanking towers on both sides, so turning it from a single spike jnto three interconnected ones....

Yes, these are the PR renders/images Sofitel uses on its website since months.

Being a small island site is precisely why it’s difficult for a 30+ level hotel/apartment building to have anything else at street level other than services for the building itself. Additional retail/hospitality has to play second fiddle in this instance as everything mentioned above has to be acco...

Wasting 3 frontages of an island site on car park is pretty disappointing The car park starts on level 3, so the wastage is mostly just the direct garage access. Front third is pretty much hotel, middle third is parking garage, hotel drop-off and apartment entry, and the north third are for retail/...

There are a small number of apartments advertised for lease, but nowhere near the number expected.

They seemingly changed priorities, the residential part is (hopefully) completed within a month or so.

Not sure how I would react if they light up my balcony like that...

It looks like like they’ve arranged the facilities around so that some - for example Koomo - will still have good views towards the south? It’s hard to work out the setback for the new student tower next door and how that will affect the sunlight reaching the pool - perhaps sun seekers will still g...
