Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

I accept that the interior is in desperate need of repair and that will ultimately improve the guest experience, however to completely ignore the fact that the exterior of the building looks tired as well is pretty pathetic. I'm not saying clad or paint the exterior but simply a stone-mason type cl...

Re: (VIS) Hungry Jack's Carpark

As much as it was a travesty the Grand Central Hotel was knocked down, it is now well and truly in the past and it's time to move on. Other than being an architectural delight, what other significance did the GCH building have?. Building a replica will just end up looking tacky. Just like the Centra...

Hudsons and Red Rooster can stay where they belong... in the suburbs.
Lol, is Hudsons even still around?

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

I would rather question why The Advertiser is happy to commit journalists to this trash and not to more newsworthy stories. Probably a newsdrop... or maybe trash stories about the City Council get lots of clicks? How about reporting what's happening with the Riverbank to Market Link? Or the North T...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Dymocks on Rundle Mall is going to be replaced with a multi-level Rebel Sport. Dymocks are looking for a new CBD location. Rundle Mall's biggest bookstore will close its doors at its current location for the last time on Friday, to be replaced with a new Rebel Sport “megastore”. The new sports store...

Hideous. I can somewhat understand how other horrible developments were approved by SCAP, but this whole development raises a lot of questions about our development planning process in Adelaide. Not only are the design and materials completely unsympathetic of North Terrace but the unspoken of (outs...

Curious to know whether Cheap as Chips might pop up elsewhere in the city, it was a pretty sizeable and well frequented store to be lost entirely without replacement. The former Harris Scarfe or Spotlight spot in Rundle Mall Plaza maybe A Cheap As Chips would not be a good fit for Rundle Place. Rat...

I believe there used to be a supermarket where Target is now, maybe a Franklins.
Yeah it was a Franklins in the 90s

If this plan also includes a major overhaul of TTP, then I see no issue with paid parking.

Redevelopment is LONG overdue.

Re: M1 South-Eastern Freeway

Yes, all completed, towards Mount Barker the speed limit is 100 and towards Adelaide the speed limit is 90. Hopefully they can continue the project between Crafers and Glen Osmond in the near future. Surely this would be next. It's been 20 years since it was built (feel so old) and now in need of a...

Services Australia has confirmed it will relocate more than 2200 staff to a new $450m office tower in the Adelaide CBD, paving the way for construction of the city’s...
