of course we're building other exciting new stuff too

it's called progress and it's about time Adelaide had some.

mind you, it's costing a fair bit and there's been quite a lot of grumbling about it, but I think eventually it will all be worth it.

Photos?  

Stay tuned.....they're coming, just not today.

Oh alright then, here's one>>>

what do you suppose this is then?

I'll tell you on Thursday.

  2. Right now it's a big hole in the ground. But that is promising in this economy. Go Adelaide.

  4. Andrew; that's funny.

    Manzanita; but it's a big hole with construction happening.

    Elephant's Child; I hope we retain some of the charm too, I hope we retain a lot of the charm. But Adelaide needs to grow.

  8. Oh, wow, that medical research building in your last post looks amazing! I LOVE old buildings and architecture, but that new building sure is something to look at, too.

    Here in Atlanta, a lot of historical buildings have been demolished to make way for new more generic ones. For some crazy idea, even buildings 20-25 years old... perfectly good buildings... are considered "old" by the people in charge, so they push to have them replaced by new ones. Like our football stadium. Go figure. I don't even think of my clothes as being "old" until I've had them for at least thirty years...

  9. Every contractor tells one "Oh, we'll have that on Friday, or Monday..."
    I wonder if they have a phrase dictionary?

  10. Delores; nope.

    Susan; it's a beauty, yes? I'm not happy about historical buildings being demolished if they can be repurposed at all.

    Susan Kane; this project is about halfway done. I don't think they need a phrase dictionary, how hard is it to learn we'll have that by next week/month?
