Re: New City Arena

I don’t understand all the hate, especially on a development forum! People on this forum have been crying out for years for a CBD-based multipurpose arena. Now the government is seriously proposing one on the riverfront, and there’s a tidal wave of whingeing! In really simple terms, this arena is e...

Re: Cheap Airport O-Bahn

Adelaide doesn't have a dedicated public transport corridor from the airport to the city. Fortunately, there is a corridor used for a drain that goes between the airport and Mile End. This drain can fit a cheap O-Bahn that takes buses from the city to the airport, bypassing all of the traffic. Kesw...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

The proposed building itself is unique but it needs to be positioned back from North Terrace. Additionally, the theme of a consistent plane tree lined boulevard on the northern side of North Terrace will be broken due to this building being too close and their proposal to put native shrubs and pool...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

In fact if you compare this design to their original white box design of Adelaide Contemporary, you realise that they’ve just taken that design and made it sexier.

In any case, it’s worked.

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

I also love the design concept! This really could be an iconic national building. I’m glad Woods Bagot are the architects. The SAMHRI building has demonstrated that they know what they’re doing if they have sufficient budget to work with. Way, way better than the designs in the Adelaide Contemporary...

The streetscape level with the red brick arches looks fantastic. Really says “Adelaide Central Market”.

Re: Illuminate Adelaide

...I've been saying for years we should have festivals going in winter as well... Well, winter is the best time of year for light shows. The nights are longer. Look at the Xmas lights in the Northern Hemisphere which we can't do here until after 9pm when shopping is all over and done. Let's hope th...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

What indoor sports are they going to use a full sized stadium for? The pitch is going to lift it self up to create a roof and enclosed arena? So there's then going to be moveable seating/stands to create say a tennis court or two? A basketball court/arena? How are they going to manage the schedulin...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

It needs to happen. If Currie/Grenfell St changes to a bus only street, it would only need to be two lanes each way, so the footpaths could be widened. And plant trees on both widened footpaths, and plant a row of trees down the middle of the street to soak up bus noise and fumes. Really green it u...

Re: [PRO] St Peters Cathedral [$100 million]

I’d love to see a 2-storey cafe/bar/restaurant/function space in that glass Elder Jewel building. Give some reason for people to come to the riverbank at night. Also, I know they’re only artist impressions, but the sports arena appears to be about the size of a 7000-8000 capacity arena. It’s not a f...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Hampstead Road is a major freight route - I'm sure Botany Road is not. However, there are many roads in Adelaide that could benefit from this treatment. Having lived in both Sydney and Adelaide, I would say that Sydney is better at managing traffic on major roads. Firstly, there is very little on-s...

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

The local community through Thebarton and Mile End has already been mobilised, and at this stage at least there is bipartisan support from Labor and the LNP for a tunnel through the area. Any other option would unleash significant opposition, with or without it going anywhere near the Thebby. In my...

the train should tunnel underneath :)
Won’t ever be done, because it’s not frequent enough to justify the expense.
