[COM] Re: North Terrace Streetscape Upgrade

Not sure what the $4.5 million that was budgeted for this is doing, because the timeline has slipped from the beginning of last year; to July; to Christmas; to god knows when now. Aside from Grenfell Street, this is one of the final sections of streetscape to be upgraded in our core precinct. The p...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

Why is there a van parked on the footpath? If you follow the link most of the street still has parking. It's unclear whether it is all times or just for certain periods of the day. https://ehq-production-australia.imgix.net/1c811ae509eda6a6cfa7350783320f04d98167ae/photos/images/000/071/115/original...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

Also in the market precinct, the Council is finally preparing to fix the pedestrian-hating Field Street. Plans involve converting it to southbound one-way only traffic, wider footpaths (which in this case means actual footpaths), and tree planting. Some renders and link to public consultation below:...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

I don't really care about golf, but if the courses are going to take up such a significant proportion of parklands, they may as well be worthy of their location and maintained to a standard that can host national tournaments again.

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

these plans would have been in the pipeline for years? Given the amount of detail that is out there about this project, I really doubt it. It would have been weeks, months tops. The Federal Government was handing out hundreds of millions of dollars for 'congestion-busting' projects. They had to put...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

I'm not buying into this debate yet because it's a rehash of previous arguments. But a couple people have said the the Adelaide Entertainment Centre is privately owned. It's not. It's run by a public corporation -- the Adelaide Venue Management Corporation, which also runs the Convention Centre and ...

Re: News & Discussion : New Restaurants, Bars & Night Clubs

The former Propaganda Bar is reopening as the (unimaginatively named) Gatsby Lounge, or so says their aggressive social media marketing.

[VIS] Re: A new inner-city stadium is one of a raft of big ticket projects on the government's agenda this year.

It's a pity we're debating the need of yet another sport stadium without considering how our state's arts infrastructure is being left behind. In addition to the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, the State Theatre Company is now saying that the Festival Centre is no longer fit for purpose . As Sydney Ope...

Re: News & Discussion: Other Metropolitan Developments

Cant recall if there's an earlier post about the old Schweppes factory re-development on Payneham Rd, but the project has been canned in any case. One resident objected to the already approved proposal, and won. https://www.adelaidenow.com.au/messenger/east-hills/one-mans-appeal-against-payneham-sc...

I’m thinking best and less wont be far behind unless a tenant is found soon.
Not to mention that Best & Less is owned by the same private equity firm that put Harris Scarfe into administration.

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

Has anything changed here? Kinda expected we'd be at the point of a massive concrete pour by now.

The cynic in me suspects a go-slow while Walker Corp makes moves behind the scene to get its extra tower.
