Adelaide has and will see a lot of change over the next ten years. The inclusion of the hospital/medical precinct, new additions to the convention centre and upgrade of Adeladie Oval, have already transformed the north part of the city. The upgrade of Festival Plaza and the Adelaide Festival Centre AND Casino, not to mention a plethora of new proposals, will not only see the skyline densify but increase in height.

As it stands right now, I would give it a 5/10. It can and will only improve from here.

WATCH THIS SPACE!

Yes but cities like Brisbane, Perth and the Gold Coast are leaving ADL in the dark ages with all their development..... ADL is a pretty poor excuse for a 5th city in my opinion.

I would agree with you if this were ten years ago but things are changing. I do agree we have been left well behind and may not catch up anytime soon but that doesn't mean we can't deliver with a skyline in the next ten years that is unique and striking.

On street level it's a very vibrant wonderful place now.

I certainly don't think so. Adelaide is an extremely underrated city. I really enjoyed my time when I was there, and would love to go back. Development has really picked up immensely in the last few years.

Adelaide is a beautiful city. If only half of American cities could learn something from the South Australian capital.

Adelaide is often touted as Australia's most elegant city which says a lot and at street level it's arguably the best in the country; layout, buildings, width of roads, parklands etc. We as humans desire to live in human-scale cities and Adelaide certainly measures up as a human-scale city and the city's lack of skyscrapers certainly doesn't mean that it's lacking in any way as far as quality of life is concerned.

Adelaide, surely the most elegant of all Australian cities with its tree-lined boulevards and glorious Victorian parklands...

I know it has height restrictions..... but build some more towers similar to the height of the Westpac Tower.

You have no idea what you are talking about, stop trolling and let those that appreciate this thread get on with it!

Overall though Adelaide seems to fair pretty well from a general consensus, well done. There is no doubt that this is a progressive city, with some exciting new developments under way and about to start. Apart from height though Adelaide has some very interesting and unique architecture that makes it different from other Australian cities, not to mention its great lay out and design envisioned by Colonel Light which makes the city accessible from multiple perspectives in regards to its close proximity to everything a capital city needs.
To really appreciate this city you must see it in person in order to realise why it ranks as one of the most liveable cities in the world.

Looks like the downtown would be nice from ground level, but as far as skylines go it's a bit boring. Probably a nice place to live a quiet life.

Even though it doesn't have a skyline that would blow anyone's mind, Adelaide looks a fairly dense, vibrant and urban city. I think the skyline is fine for a city of its size. Definitely would not mind exploring the place if I ever get a chance to head down to Australia.

It's retained a lot of its past, so what it lacks in height it makes up in grandeur and street-level elegance. A charming, quaint little city dotted with lot's of churches.
