Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

While we're on the topic elsewhere about the cleanliness of North Tce, the path on the southern side of the riverbank — from under the Morphett St bridge along to Elder Park — is on Monday morning, still covered in silt and mud from the downpour last Thursday night. It's our postcard shot, cannot th...

[U/C] Re: 203 North Terrace | 119m | 35 levels | Student Accom

Whilst I agree with the general sentiment that the building is not particularly good, I get tired of the sensationalistic take that always gets played. Is the building a bit shit? Yes. Is it the worst building in Adelaide ? Of course not, not even close. What does “looks worse than even the most hyp...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Jack London are a very 00s look and concept so without progressing it isn’t hard to see why they fell under. A shame though. And two swimwear brands very close to each other aren’t amazing either. Hopefully they find a few brands that work. Maybe some bridge luxury international labels would fit we...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Okay great to hear! Had a lot of the bridge luxury retail closed? Zimmermans, Jacks and Calibre have left? Calibre left around three years ago. Zimmermans is still there. It's really just been Jack London (who have closed all their stores nationally, except for Chadstone. Apparently having had most...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

I wasn't even aware Vego's had closed. Just checked the Cherry Darling facebook page, and it seems like they still have the lease and weighing up what they do with it in future. I think the laneways around the East End serve that opportunity for cheaper rents and getting some more unique offerings, ...

Wow Rundle st really has gone to the pits.
To be honest, I don't think it's fared any worse than elsewhere over the past year.

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Rundle St news: Dangerfield has moved across the road to where MJ Bale was (who have shifted to the smaller space formally occupied by Jack London). Megabike has just closed up after finishing their lease. Taste Baguette has also closed, after having very sporadic hours over the past year. Mekong Vi...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Meanwhile Ban Ban and something called "Super Egg" are opening in Adelaide Central Plaza, next to Jarn Leva. I wonder what that means for Little Ban Ban in Rundle Mall Plaza.

Re: News & Developments: Bowden TOD

My understanding of the intention of the Gasworks park was something more akin to Paddington Reservoir Gardens in Sydney (mixed with a bit of Carriageworks). A type of public space significantly different from what's provided by the likes of Bowden Park, Kevin Taylor Park, Emu Park, etc. The retaine...

Re: News & Developments: Bowden TOD

I wouldn't have a problem with it if it includes open space that can be used by the public 75% of the time. At least this way we know that it will be maintained at a decent level while still allowing for public access, and the council would not be charged with the upkeep. I wonder how the other clu...

Re: News & Developments: Bowden TOD

And this tidbit pretty much confirms the behind the scenes moves. 'Necessary probity' as though it's an only obligation to begrudgingly tick and not itself a goal of public administration. That seem to be on the money, given the timing of RenewalSAs press release, and then this appears in the Adver...

Re: News & Developments: Bowden TOD

Well, fuck. BOWDEN – FORMER GASWORKS SITE Renewal SA has held a long-term vision to remediate and transform the former Gasworks site – also known as the Bowden Heritage Precinct – into a vibrant, healthy and active precinct as part of the Bowden redevelopment. Over the past few months, we have had n...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

It's pretty small, and doesn't have a large range. BWS in Woolworths is better stocked in comparison.

Re: News & Developments: Bowden TOD

So it seems the Crows-Gasworks idea is just a thought bubble. One of the Charles Sturt councillors has been talking to RenewalSA and provided an update on one of the community Facebook groups. As of Wednesday RenewalSA have had no contact from the Crows regarding the proposal. As far as they're conc...
