As would I. I always make it a must-do everytime I goto Melbourne, to walk through Melbourne Central... just to see what else is new. I think the scale of Melbourne Central is just right, good mix of retail space, and food courtyards without being too overbearing.

There is going to be a extension, so this thread is no longer needed. Please use the other.

Cheers

Id prefer a new city mall.

Can anyone give any info on what stores we are looking at for Marion??

Every frigging shop imaginable is in there so for an extra 100 stores to be added, there must be some designer labels going in there (eg; guess, A/X, and all them). Thing is that no other place in SA has these kinda shops which will be a bit weird.

On the other hand it will be good if they were because if Marion is up there with the largest shopping places in Australia, it will need to have appealing shops. If they don't then it will just be one big MASSIVE average shopping center with HEAPS of average shops.

Pretty sure you're right on that call, I read (in the messenger) the new shops would be high fashion/top end of market

The shopping malls in Oz generally dwarf those in Europe. There's certainly nothing on Marion's scale anywhere in London or in the UK as a whole. The only place I've seen bigger is the huge hypermarket complex at the French side of the Channel Tunnel in Calais.

I beg to differ on that Redback. The Trafford Centre in Manchester UK and Meadowhall in Sheffield UK are both roughly the same size as Westfield Marion.

There is also Westfield Merry Hill in UK which I haven't been to but from the Westfield site it sounds like it may also be of a similar size.

Back in my homeland, Russia, we would KILL for a shopping mall of the standards that exist here in Australia. We should really appreciate what we have available to us here

They are similar pushbutton true, but I lived in sheffield for a number of years and Meadowhall would fit comfortably inside Marion IMO, it only has about 250 shops, the food court is tiny and the dept stores are much smaller area-wise than david jones or myers. I'd say marion is a good 40-50% bigger even as it is now. Trafford centre is about similar to meadowhall but impossible to park... and if you do get inside, you soon wish you hadn't! :x
You could walk end to end in either of them in 5mins whereas I get lost in Marion without my 11yo daughter to come with me :wink:

Merry Hill in birmingham is fairly old & grotty, and the malls in london such as brent cross are surprisingly much smaller and older.
The French channel ones are pretty awesome tho, although not a fair comparison with us as they cater for the cross-channel trade for lower GST in France.

A big plus for Adelaide I reckon!
