Re: New Retail in the CBD

On a brighter note I have posted previously that there is a much bigger brand looking at space in the redeveloped Harris Scarfe site. They are still in negotiations and yet to commit but plans are all drawn up with them in it. I will keep you posted. I guess Apple. There's a cool looking bike shop ...

[COM] Re: Adelaide Oval Redevelopment - General Discussion Thread

Another example is Adelaide's snub in the 2015 Asian Cup where all games are being scheduled for the East Coast. Is there a better suited stadium in the country to the expected small crowds of that tournament than Hindmarsh Stadium? I'm not talking about games involving Australia, they will rightly ...

[COM] Re: Adelaide Oval Redevelopment - General Discussion Thread

Even failing in that bid, a FIFA compliant stadium would allow the FFA to finally schedule a Senior Socceroos game in Adelaide. You of all people should know that Adelaide Oval is perfectly capable of hosting Socceroos games already. Three or four years ago Australia was scheduled to host Lebanon a...

[COM] Re: U/C: Adelaide Oval - Western Grandstand Construction Thr

I think its very important to get that footbridge built from Central Train Station, linking North Tce to AOvia the Festival Centre forecourt! Its surely much cheaper to build a footbridge than the Tram extension to North Adelaide(with a super-stop at AO) A tram would be pointless. 20,000 people wil...

Will provide some excellent views at night time when AFL games are played there. I think this would just about be closer to buildings of siginifance than any other major sporting stadium in Australia?? I agree. AO is the best located stadium in the country relative to the city it resides in. In fac...

LA has the Rose Bowl, Adelaide will have the Toilet Bowl. This Fugly design needs to be scrapped and the planned Eastern Stand needs to go all the way around connecting up to each side of the new Western Stand. Your problem is you have bad taste. The open ended north end will be a great feature tha...

There were rumours around that SACA members (who will be voting on the development proceeding) were being offered a refund of part or all of the annual construction levy if they vote yes. If that's true it means that the vote will not be by secret ballot. The problem with you is you have a conspira...

Re: New Retail in the CBD

I would really love to have later shopping in the mall every day of the week, I really would. I just can't see it being successful. Usually in the week before Christmas they have late night shopping and even then it is near empty unless it's a Friday. And that's the week before Christmas! Maybe it's...

[COM] Re: Adelaide Oval Redevelopment - General Discussion Thread

One things which suprises me about this development is the fact that its going to take three years to complete. From my perspective I don't see any reason why they couldn't start demolishing the existing stands in March / April next year (after the cricket season is complete.) I would imagine this ...

[COM] Re: PRO: Victoria Square Upgrade

One suggestion to help integrate the square is to divert all traffic lanes to the same side, preferably the quieter side (East) so that both north bound and south bound traffic travel to the east of the square. That would help attract more people from the west, although admittedly may isolate it a b...
