[COM] Re: 260 Flinders Street | 84m/74m | 24/21 Levels | Mixed Use

What's wrong with 45 day payment terms? It is unethical as far as I am concerned and should be forbidden. Builder's get paid within 7-14 days, therefore there is absolutely no reason for them to try and enforce 45 day payment terms as they only want to increase their own cash flow and profit furthe...

Nothing would please me more if Hutchinsons win the job. Hindmarsh try to negotiate and enforce 45 day payment terms. Would have to have rocks in your head to work for/with them.

Curious Planet (ex Australian Geographic retail stores) has also announced they are closing all stores over the coming weeks.

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Yes to Uniqlo and/or Muji taking up space. I think a Big W would be a fail. The mall doesn’t need more discount department stores, nor duplicates of what can be found in the suburban centres, and I suspect the a good portion of Big W shoppers are also people that complain about how expensive city pa...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

Personally I think we could go much further and name an entire suburb after West Thebarton.

[PRO] Re: Ovingham Level Crossing Removal

Wouldn't it be far easier to leave the existing line at grade (particularly with the ARTC line), and extend the hill from Park Tce into an overpass? Or maybe it'll be a bit of both.

[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Am I the only one that doesn't particularly like the idea of turning 500m on each side of our main boulevard into the city into an ode to (spectator) sport, filled with stadiums? Also, is the church at Hindmarsh that much of an impediment? We've lost things of far greater heritage value, for far les...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

Yep, no issues with the trees in the middle. They make a far far better entrance from North Tce. The criticism of the arbor is fair, I was just walking past it and it gives almost no shade. If there were wires across for vines to grow across it might be another story, but as it is, there's no potent...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Australian Geographic and the shoe store on ground floor have now closed too (replaced by the temporary art gallery that pops up in dead shops). Myer centre is in a sad state. Who would have thought that paint job and new tiles wouldn't have brought in more people :roll: It needs to be completely r...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

Among it's many issues are the fact the location kind of sucks for anyone who isn't driving there. I don't think the location is awful, but it could certainly be better connected. The Frome St bikeway will help (if it's ever completed...), as would the tram up Prospect Rd. Perhaps an easy change wo...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

I can't believe there's people that would rather keep a decrepit, sub standard aquatic centre than see the area get a much needed upgrade with a mixed use facility. I don't think it's as decrepit, sub standard, as people are being led to believe. Aren't the diving boards considered unsafe for use? ...
