Doesn't look like any attempt has been made to better connect to the railway station, or have a frontage on any of the surrounding roads. It'll be even more of a car parking moat than it is currently.

Agree Nathan. Looks like a cookie cutter suburban shopping mall in a sea of asphalt with no improvement to access and no reference to its surroundings. Big lost opportunity if it goes ahead as per the application.

I agree it should be better integrated with it's surrounds. However design-wise, it's actually quite good.

It's the State Govt office building corner Nile and Nelson Sts, next to the Quest. There are some great renders on page 32 of this thread. Going up very quickly too.

New rail line
Trains back into the heart of the Port
Rolling by train to the heart of Port Adelaide on a new 1km rail spur line is one step closer with builders releasing the first animation of the experience. SEE HOW IT WILL LOOK

So no actual station building? What happens when the wind blows and the rain comes? Cut price development :(
Also.no overhead wires??
Big infrastructure investments are usually under-valued and & over-criticized while in the planning stage. It's much easier to envision the here and now costs and inconveniences, and far more difficult to imagine fully the eventual benefits.

Well, considering there are no solid electrification plans for the line, there wouldn't be a need for the overhead. Hopefully the station is designed to allow overhead in the future.

On the wind factor, that is a downfall that the station has no shelter from that, but they are always the first to be vandalised. DPTI have always opted for very low maintenance stations. On the other hand, the museum's location should protect people from the strong westerlies.

In all fairness, very few stations in Adelaide have active buildings anymore – even brand new Bowden won’t nor, I think, will Oaklands. I can understand the reasoning behind it from back in the day with manned ticket offices etc but nowadays it’s just an expense that in most cases couldn’t be justified.
