The DAC website has been pretty boring lately, though I noticed that a Krispy Kreme outlet is planned in-conjunction with a new OTR petrol station on Glen Osmond Road in Fullarton.
Agreed. If this is where I think it is, completely unnecessary. You have OTR at the base of the S/E Freeway, OTR next to the Fullarton supermarket, OTR on Fullarton Road. Do Peregrine not realise that people are capable of driving more than 500 metres for petrol and consumer goods?

Adelaide developers reveal $225 million in plans for sites up for rezoning by State Government
Dan Jervis-Bardy, Eugene Boisvert, Eastern Courier Messenger
13/08/2017

DEVELOPERS are planning $225 million in new housing and commercial projects in Adelaide’s east and inner south to capitalise on the State Government’s latest high-rise push.

Among the proposals are an $80 million plan to transform the former Caroma factory on Magill Rd into a six-storey apartment complex, a vision for a 90-home estate in Everard Park and a $40 million apartment, office and retail development in Malvern.

The new owners of the former Schweppes plant also have plans to turn the Payneham Rd site into a $30 million homemaker centre, including a Harvey Norman store, Foodland and JB Hi-Fi.

Plans for the sites were outlined this month in submissions from developers and property owners in support of the government’s plan to rezone 10 sites across Adelaide’s east and inner south for high-rise housing.

The release of the documents came as residents made an emotional plea for the plan to be scrapped amid fears it would ruin the amenity of their suburbs.

One submission revealed budget supermarket retailer Aldi and developers Buildtec and Catcorp were in “exclusive” negotiations to buy the Caroma site, where they planned to build a “vibrant hub” of apartments, as well as retail and commercial spaces.

Another submission outlined plans for 90 apartments and townhouses fronting Anzac Highway and Third Ave, Everard Park.

That site was “development ready”, the submission said of the proposal, which was expected to create more than 300 jobs.

The owners of 1-5 Beulah Rd, Norwood, have plans for a four-storey, $10 million mixed-use development, while the Beaurepaires store on The Parade would be redeveloped with a six-storey apartment block under a new $20 million vision for that site.

Catcorp — a property company owned by the co-founder of developer Commercial & General, Anthony Catinari — also wants to build a $40 million, six-storey development at 301-305 Unley Rd, according to a submission in support of a plan to raise the two-storey building height limit for the Malvern site.

The $40 million project would include apartments, shops, consulting rooms and offices.

Mr Catinari bought the single-storey offices on the 2270sq m site in 2015.

The submission noted the site was “eminently suitable for development” and was close to public transport, schools and shops.

It stated Catcorp would lodge a development application for the project “immediately” after Planning Minister John Rau approved the rezoning.

A group of local residents last week addressed a State Planning Commission meeting amid growing community concerns over plans for the Malvern site.

The Unley community has rallied in opposition to the rezoning plan since it was announced in May, with the local council and residents lodging more than 200 submissions objecting to the proposal.

Trent Fahey, who lives across from it, told the meeting that a multi-storey complex would conflict with its surrounds.

“(It would be) completely inconsistent with any other developments in the area,” Mr Fahey said.

Fellow resident George Sarris was concerned that a loss of sunlight and extra noise from a high-rise building would affect his mental state.

The commission was forced to schedule three extra public meetings after dozens of Malvern residents and Unley state Liberal MP David Pisoni asked to voice their concerns in person.

Mr Rau in May announced plans to rezone the sites, which he believed had the potential to redeveloped in the next 18 months.

A number of property owners whose land was not included in the original plan have since requested to be added to the scheme — including the owners of the now-vacant Schweppes plant.

In a letter to the Planning Department on behalf of the owners of the Payneham Rd site, Future Urban director Chris Vounasis said the 12,000sq m plant was “ripe for redevelopment” as a homemaker centre.

Mr Vounasis said his client had “pre-commitments” from potential tenants for a $30 million complex, as well as a Melbourne-based “up-market retirement operator”.

“Negotiations with all parties are progressing positively, however, without the security of the land being rezoned … the opportunity to realise the masterplan may be lost,” Mr Vounasis’s letter stated.

The Le Cornu family did not put in a submission detailing plans for their 3.6ha Anzac Highway property.

About 80 residents and representatives of property owners are expected to address the remaining public meetings, which will be held on Wednesday (August 16), on August 21 and August 24, from 7pm, at SAGE Hotel, South Tce.

A consultant for Catcorp will speak at the August 24 meeting.

$45 million for 90 dwellings on the KFC / Hungry Jacks Everard Park site, sounds like a massive amount to build 90 apartments, the average price would be less then the build price, plus HJ's and KFC are earning a lot of income in this location, why demolish them and build a development that will loose money? This is not the Le Cornu site - it's mentioned separately

Its also the Advertiser, who are notorious for piss poor journalism, alternative fact checking and passing off opinion pieces as news.

As if you haven't learnt your lesson yet - don't believe anything in the Advertiser. See if a second source verifies the truth for at least a part of the story.

It's been the experience here, that whenever we spread topics over threads like that, people post in several different places. So probably a counterintuitive idea.

But, yeah. That corner of Kent Town is seeing a building renaissance, not seen since all those two storey unit blocks went up in the 1970/80s.
There's also a large number of housing trust apartments on Rundle Street and Capper Street, just north of Prince Alfred College. If/when the government chooses to sell off the land, there would be huge potential for more dense growth in the area.

This site is adjacent Hungry Jacks and KFC.

Up Magill way

From The Advertiser
Five-storey Woodforde apartment block approved by State Planning Commission

Image

A CONTENTIOUS $5.8 million, five-storey apartment building in Woodforde has been given the go-ahead by the State Planning Commission.

It will add 46 homes to the joint Devine Limited and Starfish Developments project worth $150 million at the old Magill Youth Training Centre site on Glen Stuart Rd.

The commission approved the development last week, satisfied the proposal met State Government and Adelaide Hills Council development regulations.

A Starfish spokeswoman said they will now be progressing to detailed designs with the aim of starting construction by mid-2018.

“We’re pleased to see the development approved ... sales are open, there have been a lot of inquiries to date,” she said.

The State Government’s planning authority originally deferred a decision twice, seeking more information from the developers on such issues as visitor parking and sun-shading for the penthouse.

In June, about 30 Woodforde residents fronted a hearing to outline their concerns over the development.

Most were worried about the height of the building and the increased traffic it could bring to the area.


Devine Limited and Starfish Developments bought the site about two years ago.

I think that one looks rather nice, and if the render is depicting the area correctly, it's not much different in height to the tree line.

Only negative thing I would have to say is good luck trying to grow that section of green wall along the walkway between the two buildings.

Push by southern suburb development board for new hotel developments in the southern metropolitan area.
At first I thought a new "international" hotel in the south does not make sense, but on reflection maybe a three star hotel focusing on servicing Flinders Medical Centre/University, Tonsley Innovation Precinct would be a goer. A Quest or Ibis would be the appropriate level.
As for the location, if it was setup as a car-driver only patron hotel, then location is irrelevant, but if they factor in people with no cars, then a location near public transport would be better.
It is just such a pity that Marion Shopping Centre is so far from the future new train line, maybe a hotel in the Westfield area would be suitable (access to food and bus services)
As for a luxury resort at McClaren Vale, yes why not...

Article from The Advertiser
Push for new international hotels, luxury resort, power plants in Adelaide’s south

Image

TWO international standard hotels, a luxury resort at McLaren Vale and community owned power plants to reduce electricity prices are among priorities to drive new jobs and investment in Adelaide’s south.

Onkaparinga and Marion Councils have released an economic vision for the regions that stretch from Glandore to Aldinga and are home to 363,000 people and more than 53,600 businesses.

Among priorities in the masterplan, launched by the Southern Adelaide Economic Development Board, include the potential construction of hotels at Oaklands Park, Darlington and a luxury resort at McLaren Vale.

The economic blueprint proposes spending $100,000 in the next three years on a feasibility study for a hotel at Oaklands Park.

“The inner-south attracts over 18 million visitors a year for sport, health, retail, business and educational reasons,” the plan states.

“Unfortunately, a lack of visitor accommodation in the central Marion area means that a significant proportion of visitor expenditure is not captured.”

Marion Mayor Kris Hanna said an international standard hotel was “long overdue” while SAEDB chair Nikki Govan said anecdotally there was a need for a hotel in the area.

“There’s certainly some demand in the area in terms of the state aquatic centre with national trials, there’s Morphettville Racecourse ... (but) we need to look at whether Marion is the right place for it or whether it’s better positioned around the Tonsley site to support Flinders University and the Tonsley precinct,” she said.

She said a McLaren Vale resort could be of four to five star calibre with between 150 to 200 beds offering an opportunity for a major hotel operator to corner the conference and function market.

“We believe there is a need for that luxury end,” she said.

The blueprint also proposes investing $500,000 towards developing two so-called community energy hubs in each council area to generate power from a mix of renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and biomass, to provide cheaper electricity for businesses and households.

Ms Govan said the energy solution is modelled on similar initiatives in Victoria and NSW supported through State Government investment.

ZEN Energy’s Richard Turner, who is also a board member of SAEDB, said the hubs would be localised power plants and could be up and running within 12 months under the right conditions.

Given that the Flinders/Tonsley/Darlington hub is already planned to surround the new Flinders station, a hotel would be very welcome. As there are plans for a bus interchange at the station as well, it would be great to see a frequent Go Zone-like connection between the new interchange and Marion Shopping Centre/Oaklands Station.

Is anything yet planned for the triangle between South, Sturt and the Flinders Drive extension, other than the rail extension? This would be a great location if the hospital staff parking were relocated/undergrounded. Public transport on the doorstep, and FMC a short walk away and Marion a quick bus trip.

Residential/retail proposal for the Marleston Tafe site.

From The Advertiser
Plan for 250 homes at former Marleston TAFE site in developer’s $60 million vision

Image

A 250-HOME estate featuring a shopping precinct is at the heart of a $60 million vision for the former Marleston TAFE site.

The proposal from property developer Richard Antunes would transform the 5ha site at 254 Richmond Rd and take advantage of the State Government’s latest high-rise push.

Under the masterplan, “Marleston Village” would feature apartment buildings up to six storeys high on the site’s southern side, with a retail precinct on the northern side, facing Richmond Rd.

The retail centre is proposed to include a 4500sq m supermarket and 2500sq m of specialty shops, such as a greengrocer, health or childcare centre businesses or green space.

There is also potential for a 2000sq m “mini-major” retailer such as an ALDI supermarket or Dan Murphy’s liquor store.

Homes towards the east and south would be between two and three storeys to reduce impact on the neighbouring residential areas.

According to the Eastern Courier, ALDI and two developers are planning a supermarket/residential development for the old Caroma factory site on Magill Road. I don't know how this works considering there is apparently still strict regulations on the construction of new supermarkets in the east but I guess we'll wait and see what happens.
