Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

On the subject of Chinatown being re - developed, how about some of the chinese shops improve there business practices. Most of the chinese hairdressers have no idea about how to cut your hair and a lot of the asian food outlets sell food which can quite easily put you in hospital. Also, the Central...

Re: News & Discussion : New Restaurants, Bars & Night Clubs

What's the situation of the old HQ / Newmarket hotel site ?

Seems to have been dormant for the last couple of years.

Something a lot more interesting could have been done. It looks take and cheap af. Very much an afterthought.

We finally get a new tallest after 35 years and all you guys do is complain..

Has anything changed here? Kinda expected we'd be at the point of a massive concrete pour by now.

The cynic in me suspects a go-slow while Walker Corp makes moves behind the scene to get its extra tower.
Correct me if I am wrong, but tower 1 hasn't been confirmed at this stage.

The skyline in general is looking much broader and beefier than a few years ago
You mean its looking much broader and beefier than 35 years ago.

I've been waiting my whole life for these new building to come through.

Re: SA Economy

I think it’s more employment/jobs being the key to population growth (both coming in and reason for those leaving). Until there is significant change in employment and the types of jobs, I expect our limited population growth to continue. Tasmania isn't an economic powerhouse but still they have hi...

Re: SA Economy

If we are serious about increasing our population growth, we should double-down on our tourism industry and aim to replicate Tasmania’s success. Some ideas that come to mind are: vastly expanding our spring festival offering in Oct and Nov, fast-track a Glenelg to KI ferry service and fast-track th...

That’s fucking pathetic. This government .... Back on topic indeed before I start rambling. :wallbash: You're frustrated that they pulled the funding for the fashion festival, but then you didn't notice that the event had been cancelled. That's my point exactly, nobody cared about the fashion festi...

Re: News & Discussion : New Restaurants, Bars & Night Clubs

Yes it used to cartoons nightclub back in the 1990's. Before the redevelopment, the upstairs section (which was
cartoons) was dormant I believe.

It will be interesting to see what happens now. Who's going to buy an oversized night club which isn't profitable ?

Re: News & Discussion : New Restaurants, Bars & Night Clubs

HQ holds 2300 people, thats insane. How many staff have lots their jobs? It would be mind boggling the amount of money it makes on a Friday or Saturday night. There's a lot of turnover of patrons throughout the night in nightclubs, that could be 5000+ people coming and going. Spending $15 million o...

Hardly recognise Adelaide in that photo - loving the foreground and background combo!
And to think that the previous labor government preferred to waste money on a motorsport festival and a pathetic fashion festival which
nobody cared about.
