Its a stock standard building. Nothing great about it, nothing all that bad either. Simplistic more then anything else.
Just wait till the monstrosity next door goes up.
Agree. Adelaidean doesn’t win any beauty awards but it’s no shocker either.

Re: Vision: CBD Underground Rail Loop

Have recently been holidaying in Singapore, and using their brilliant MRT Metro system, widely-regarded as among the best systems in the world. Clearly our rail system is light years behind the world’s best. But it got me thinking about the importance of a CBD rail tunnel to link our rail lines toge...

It has been awhile since I photographed from the top of the carpark so here it is, in all of its glory and all the shrouding removed. very impressive. 2019-12-19 09-47.JPG My only disappointment with this building is that it isn’t more centrally-located so it features more prominently in Adelaide s...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

I’d support bus lanes from the National Wine Centre to the Magill/Portrush Rd intersection (perfect time to do it when they widen the intersection over the next few years). This is a very busy bus route with great frequency (5 min frequency in peak) but is slowed down by the volume of traffic. I li...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

The crane base is white in the background :) Again, there is no contractor on board, so a tower crane wouldn't be mobilised yet. It could just be a piece of one of the piling cranes. Was there a change of architects for the office tower? Who was it before and who is it now? Here’s hoping we get a b...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Can't Myers building just fill in the void between basement and ground and move the food court to ground? Move maybe lincraft and a gym to basement. Move the pub to mall side on 1st or 2nd is easy. Myers could take space in 2nd and close the upper levels. And have office and apartments above that? ...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Demolish the entire CBD sans a couple of buildings and start again. Lol. They will really need to internally restructure Myer Centre for it to work. And can they re clad the exterior? It’s as tired as fudge. Exactly. Ground floor escalators to lower and upper levels need to be moved to the front en...

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...

[U/C] Re: SkyCity Adelaide Casino Expansion | 55m | 12 Levels | Hotel

I just started working on North Tce opposite the casino building.

I love the reflective glass. It gives the building so much more “life” than non-reflective glass. It looks different at different times of the day. A great addition to the area.

Re: SA Economy

No one doubts the great lifestyle we have in Adelaide, we are one of the most liveable cities in the world after all. I would argue that a place like Melbourne growing at breakneck speed could become less liveable over the medium-long term with increased crime levels (we witnessed this already in Me...
