With the recent spate of high-rise proposals announced for Adelaide, I did a bit of research to find how we compare with the rest of Australia. In the past such comparisons would ahve been embarrassing, but now I think we are very competitive. Specially when our smaller population and economic importance is taken into account. I am specially amazed at the fact that Adelaide has more proposed and approved high rise buildings than either Brisbane or Perth.
