Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Was the Diesel a pop up until it fit out a permanent store?

Diesel seems like such an early 2000s label that I couldn't imagine it doing well, much like G-Star.

Re: Adelaide Oval Redevelopment

Was in the members' and yeah, there was a bit of angst. I don't think it'll be an issue in future years. They had an on-screen announcement just after the first shot saying what it was and not to be alarmed. You'd think they'd do it before the whole thing started like they do regarding the fireworks...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

The landlord who wants money after likely trying to get better quality tenants? Not sure that the ACC can reject a tenant based on what it sells, provided it's not illegal or objectionable in a general sense. As for the signage, it doesn't seem too over the top. I can't see them lasting long anyway....

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Lindt is opening up a store at Harbour Town (of all places). Wouldn't be too big a stretch to suggest they might be looking to open a cafe in the CBD.

Matt Blatt is also opening up it's first Adelaide store on Morphett Street.

I like the fact that it's not your standard box, but it's a bit too 1990s Gold Coast for me. It already looks dated and completely out-of-place.

Edit: just seen that others have said pretty much exactly the same thing. Nice to know I'm not alone on this.

...Am looking forward to seeing them turned on. Hopefully they're not practically fluros as has been suggested, as I'll probably do another back-flip. I thought they were going to be new generation LEDs? Or am I barking? They look like LEDs, but I remember reading somewhere that they'll emit pretty...

[COM] Re: Rundle Mall Redevelopment | $30m

Saw it up close and personal today as opposed to from a drive-by and I actually really like it. The finish of the lights looks good and for lack of a better term, "expensive". There are only 4 poles that I could see - the two at either end of the Mall are likely to have some (hopefully interesting) ...

[COM] Re: Rundle Mall Redevelopment | $30m

I was thinking that the weather wasn't helping too, although the colour choice for the lights makes them stick out more than silver and the cabling's thicker than I expected. Still, I'm sure once it's up and running people will get used to it and consider it less conspicuous. I'm already used to tho...

Drove past today. I'm really trying to stay positive about the eventual end result, but it's getting harder. It all looks pretty cumbersome and intrusive.

Nice job, H1ghlifie, but yeah, blame the developers not the architects.

Hassell's more than capable of coming up with interesting designs:

They're only as good as their design and costing brief from the developers though.

[COM] Re: Adelaide Oval Redevelopment

Build a northern stand and what makes AO so special goes. It should never happen. If/when the time comes, I would look at ways of expanding the western stand. If the capacity got around 58,000 it would be more than enough. Being at capacity a few times a year does not necessitate new stands. Tickets...

[COM] Re: Rundle Mall Redevelopment | $30m

Apparently there were also questions about whether certain buildings could hold the weight of the lighting system, so the re-design is not just because of failures to obtain building owners' consent.
