Re: 9Lv $50M Apartments - Kent Town

not too mention that in stacking up the economics they probably got more govt grant for homeless accommodation than trying to sell for student housing or bottom dwelling private accommodation - lets face it living above a bus station is not high on most people's list

Re: #Redevelopment - Port Adelaide Waterfront $1.2billion

i agree
if the council entered into a planing development agreement (or likewise) then they are not acting professional
