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

**cough* * I've got that on an older laptop, it still works, but I got it when it was listed on Mozillas addons. It's been removed for download/install. So if you guys can figure out how to install that from github... But I have access to a paid subscription anyway, hence the articles I post. At le...

I ride past every day. Nothing has been tidied up, and the water features at both ends of the bridge remain off (as they have for a year and a half now).

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Is it a bit weird that there is a surface level greenway on the eastern side of the tramline past Tonsley, but when the elevated section starts, that greenway just abruptly ends and then there's a switchback ramp leading up to an elevated path on the western side — with the two not joining up. Why w...

This will still be better than Dwell. As you said SRW if the fins are metallic it will be a winner. I suspect they won't be precast concrete panels like those prevalent in the Brutalist period.

Cheers
If it was brutalist, it would be in situ, not precast ;)

No 500 next year for Victoria Park, so we are graciously spared the 3 months of unsightly and expensive construction in the park lands: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-09-03/the-bend-overlooked-as-adelaide-500-alternative/12624844 Oddly, The Bend isn't in consideration as a replacement venue.

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

Yes, there's nearly double the number of trees, and they're a more appropriate species than the plane and ficus they replaced. What I think we should be doing in future, in addition to more trees, is having more soft landscaping -- that is, greenery in the understory, planters, swales -- to minimis...

Don't mind the clickbait headline, but new article up at InDaily: 'Call to repave Rundle Mall (again) to combat climate change' The idea of paving with cooler materials is just one suggestion from a report on climate risks. The notion that we would repave Rundle Mall again now (and that fresh disru...

[PRO] Re: Central Market Arcade Redevelopment | ~ 135m | 35 levels

I’m so excited for this. It’s a great design that will transform one of Adelaides clown jewels, the markets. It’ll have as big of an impact street level as it will on the skyline and really bring the skyline further south. Spoken like someone who never frequents the Central Markets, because ask any...
