i do think financial planners can serve a purpose and you shouldnt tar all with the same brush ryan

the problem is impartiality, they are often hired by places that sell the very products that they might recommend.

They do, I have a very good one.

I'm more talking about sales peoples who pose as advisors/consultants.

Usually, the only way to get true impartial advice is to pay for it generally

The hoarding around the Perth Underground entrance to the Raine Square tunnel has come down. Looks like still a bit of work to do inside. There is a shop style clear roller door closing it off.

Food Court.
Sorry about the shit quality as I couldnt save the photo (i.e. no access to) so did the next best thing and took a photo off my iphone.

Ps. I struggle to see how its a food court but it was labelled so.

Presumably the tables and chairs will help.

I'm sure it will look a lot brighter in person. Hard to judge from a photo of a photo.

Looks like the setting for some futuristic horror film...

I was ragged on a few months ago for saying the escalators looked heavy, but they really do weigh the space down and give it a very oppressive feel. I certainly won't be eating my greasy Croissant Express pastry underneath those things.

Do escalators exist that dont have that same feeling? Every escalator I know of has that feeling of "bulk".

Also a bunch of people were erecting steel beams on the building on the corner of William and Wellington the other day, I am guessing these are going to be the supports that hold the new verandah up?

There are escalators with glass casing, though I'm not sure if they seem lighter at all.

It's all a bit too busy for me. I hate that sort of tiling with random geometry all over.

Also, I imagine there are more lights to go in. Aren't there feature lights to hang in the atrium?

I would say the random gemoertry is all over. The main space looks square, like a big rectangle, then they thought "let's be really wacky and put the escalator in on an angle".
Someone got paid the big bucks to come up with that idea.

Framework for the balconies has stretched around onto William street and inside you can see what looks like all the original detailed ballustrading etc. being painted.

a lot of the escalators in Singapore have glass edges and a little turnstile inside them at the ends. Looks pretty neat - would love to see them here

No, which is why slinging them at an angle over the food court was a terrible idea.

It looks like a badly designed 80's mall. Just as well there's nothing interesting opening there so no need to go.
