Re: Glenelg Ferry & Cruise ship terminal

A Santa Monica or Brighton Pier style expansion to Glenelg would be fantastic for the area.

Imagine something like the climbing adventure park at West Beach, but at the end of a pier overhanging the ocean.

There’s a for lease sign where the Adelaide Metrocentre was too now - presume that’s recent?
Saw the signs this morning, definitely new. Not promising for this getting started soon.

Yeah but to me, Currie and Grenfell are prolly our most "downtown NY" streets. No real need for them to be beautified. They serve the purpose they're designed for.
The plan wasn't so much about beautifying them, as making them more prominent public transport corridors.

There is a chance this won't get built. The student tower next to Adelaidean has stalled. The Twin Street tower was proposed and approved ages ago and there's been no action since. The site next to the Adelaidean is a great spot, so even if that student tower has fallen through I would be very surp...

It's a shame it's taken a Melbourne firm to lift the design game for residential high rise. If they can do it, why do our local architects keep serving up mediocrity? Most of the recent developments which are of disappointing quality are student accommodation, which by and large is made to be as ch...

Personally. If I had a property near South Road, and I was going to have my house acquired, without the need of a hard sell in an undesirable location, I'd be throwing a party.
In this scenario you also presumably bought the property in that location in the first place though so don't mind it.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Yup. Taxpayers should get good services for the money, but we should also be treating workers well and increasing the number of casual and short term workers is bad for society.

The Adelaide Metro Infocenter now has big signs up saying their lease expires this month.
I thought it closed last Friday?
I just saw the signs from the bus, but last Friday was technically this month. :p

The fact this hasn't been bumped for ages means no-one has any big news on it. The cooking school may be part of Lot 14 though.
