I think the area where the green stuff is in the pic is the current magic mountain site. The old proposal had a fun park and 16 level tower, stupid NIMBY pricks.

The new proposal still does have a fun park. The proposal for the Magic Mountain site is to the left of the picture. I don't mind the 9 level building, still better than no building at all, though the 15 level building would have been better to some extent.

"A similar story is being told in Adelaide, with the proposed Platinum on the Beach residential development west of the city.

Developer Todd Brown said 120 of 130 flats had been sold off the plan, even before state government approval"

Welcome!

First question: Liberty Towers - is it a prefab design or is there a core? We discussed this a while ago because we couldn't see a core box.

Refer to Liberty Towers site on this site for further details, but the project utlises the Stair and lift core for lateral stability combined with the precast balde walls. (Dual system) The cores are insitu concrete as well as the columns, but these are the only insitu items on the project, the rest is precast. The building is supported by precast columns placed early in the project via diaphragm wall technique and hence you can say it is currently "ON STILTS" (including the lift and stair cores) as we construct the basements due to the Top down and up sequence.

Saw on the CH7 NEWS Australia Day,a group turnout led by Holdfast Bay Mayor protesting this development.The guests at the Ramada Pier Plaza Hotel were on balconies looking down in amazement at the crowd below.The media said they collected 5000 signatures from visitors to the bay,and now have around 40,000 in a petition to try and block this development.Little wonder that Adelaide is such a laughing stock,the guests at the hotel were made to feel that they should not be there,and will return home to say what a strange place this city is.

These people are a really big embarassment for our city.

The anti-progress people have actually set up a tent on Jetty Road where they are collecting signatures from fellow negative people.

A few days ago these people tried to brainwash me with their lies as I was walking down Jetty Road. I assure everyone on this forum that I gave these people a piece of my mind!

The Bay NIMBY group who oppose the Platinum on the Beach, held a demonstration on the steps of Parliament House,Adelaide today 16 Feb 04.They handed over a petition with 14,000 signatures calling on the SA government to stop it going ahead.The CH7 coverage showed them wearing yellow T shirts emblazoned with the words'Enough is enough'.I was in the area on friday,and looked at the crappy eyesore,that is a left over standing next to Ramada Pier Hotel.It will be interesting to see how Rann handles this issue!

Wow, this is amusing. There are banners opposing the development all over the Holdfast Bay area, and on some of the shop fronts. They claim it is a high-rise building being built, when it is not even 10 levels, let alone the height of many of the trees in Colley Reserve.

This is pathetic, do you see residents of Sydney protest at any development over the height of 5 levels?

The development still looks likely, AFAIK Urban Planning Minister Jay Weatherill is still in favour of it going ahead.

The electorate is a liberal seat, so the labor government probably doesn't really have to answer to their little sookylala. Unless a few other seats look dodgy.

I'd love to see how they collected 14,000 signatures.

You're probably right you know... Some of the oldies probably had heart attacks while making all the petitions.

Approved.



However, nothing can be started until council hand over the magic mountain site, so this'll still get held up a bit.

Can the State Govt not just compulsorily acquire it?

Damn the NIMBY's, full speed ahead!

Yeah the government can, and will, but the dumb****s down there would rather waste hundreds of thousands of dollars tying up the process in legal red tape. Ridiculous.

I actually believe 14 000 signatures to be really pathetic, when you consider how the anti-progress people claim that they represent all the people of South Australia.
