It looks strange, and it will stand out quite badly.

Is the group behind this a religious sect?

From the Messenger:

THE Adelaide supporters behind a $3.5 million tower proposed for 190 Greenhill Rd, Parkside, have become tight-lipped about the project.

After being ``confident enough'' to hold a sod-turning ceremony at the site last month, no further details will be revealed about the multi-storey monument they want built in honour of Dr Bevan Morris, the Adelaide-raised leader of the US-based Transcendental Meditation (TM) movement's body, the Global Country of World Peace.

Described as either as a tower of knowledge or invincibility, it would be the 134th such tower to be built around the world, if eventually approved by Unley's Development Assessment Panel.

According to a UK website, the towers mark the ``dawn of an invincible country'' and while the towers themselves are not occupied, they can be built over TM schools, as in Melbourne, or permanent exhibitions of TM research.

Tower project spokesman David Seymour, director of Maharishi's Global Administration through Natural Law, said architects were still working on the tower design and he refused to comment any further ``until the plans are finalised''.

There is a two-storey recommended limit for Greenhill Rd.

Unley Mayor Richard Thorne, a member of Unley's Development Assessment Panel, refused to comment when contacted despite previously being reported as having discussions with Mr Seymour about the preliminary plans.

``If you get a comment from the CEO, you don't then need to come to me,'' he said last week.

Unley CEO Ray Pincombe said he did not believe Mr Thorne had breached the DAP Code of Conduct by talking with the applicant, as no application has been lodged: ``Richard has not done anything wrong. Until the development application is put forward, how can you breach any rules?'' He said council staff had not had discussions with the developer.

If built, the tower would be next to Greenhill Rd's other infamous address, where the body of lawyer Derrance Stevenson was found in a freezer, in 1979.

Put the 3.5m towards a further tram extension, a better quality Westfield Marion, or a 2-way southern expressway.

Apartments, Shopping Centre, Office Complex: Parade Norwood

Postby Ho Really » Thu Sep 06, 2007 3:42 pm

Parade ambitions
Aaron Coultate
September 5, 2007

A MULTI-million dollar apartment block, a shopping centre and offices are part of an ambitious plan to redevelop part of The Parade.

However the proposal already faces a number of hurdles before it sees the light of day.

Prominent developer and Parade landowner Charlie Zollo last week revealed the plan, earmarked for the block between Osmond Tce and Church Lane, Norwood.

Opposite the Norwood Hotel, the site is home to ten businesses, including Norwood MP Vini Ciccarello's electorate office.

Mr Zollo, one of four landowners on the block, confirmed he had spoken to a group of developers interested in building an undisclosed number of new shops, offices and apartments.

"It would be very trendy and attractive to have apartments on The Parade as part of a wider high quality development," he said.

Mr Zollo, managing director of Pacific Real Estate, said the plan was in its early stages, but gave weight to talk along The Parade that a Woolworths supermarket would be part of the redevelopment.

"I think it would be great to get a large shopping centre in there, whether it's a Woolies or whatever."

However several stumbling blocks already stand, including:

  • That all of the buildings in the block are locally heritage listed, except for Chemmart and Hair Machine;
  • The Hungarian Club, on Osmond Tce, has declined the preliminary advances of developers. The club sits on a large block of prime land and would be crucial to any major development in the area and;
  • Other property owners in the block would need to agree to sell up.

Mr Zollo said the next stage would to be approach Norwood, Payneham & St Peters Council: "I think it will be up to them at the end of the day."

Hungarian Club manager Les Patthorvath confirmed the club had been approached by developers.

"Nothing was clear about the development, so the deal was off," he said.

Mr Patthorvath said the club felt no pressure to sell.

"We're doing alright (financially), it's always busy in here."

NPSP head planner Carlos Buzzetti said local zoning allowed for apartments to be built.

"It is primarily for retail, but there are opportunities for residential development as well," he said.

"We wouldn't rule it out."

Mr Buzzetti said the zoning restricted buildings to three storeys.

Woolworths spokeswoman Claire Buchanan did not return calls.

HA well looks like Norwood has become a "look but don't touch" region, and wont be seeing any expansions or decent developments any time soon.

What a shame, another proposal to throw in the bin for Adelaide.

I wouldn't be unhappy if they built decent looking apartments or mixed-use buildings up here around Norwood. I think all main suburban centres like Norwood, Noarlunga, Glenelg, Unley, Marion, Salisbury, Elizabeth, Port Adelaide, Modbury and a few others should go that way, and build them on the main roads, such as this one proposed on The Parade. That can only attract small businesses and better public transport! You guys know that... :wink:

I drove past North Terrace tonday, and it appears Korea Town has failed or never got off the ground. There is a derelict building with a sign saying Korea Town. There appears to be nothing there.


I went past last week, & the Korea Town signage has gone; building appeared to be for lease.

Wow, the office block looks cool. Is that at the intersection of Mitchell and Wattle St? I hate car dealerships. Cannot stand the sight of dodgy salesmen standing in suits with their excessively gelled hair and cheesy smiles selling cars for a living... lol.
