[COM] Re: Masters Adelaide Airport

In today’s paper there was a call for tenders (by Pike builders) for a Bunnings conversion at Adelaide Airport. I can only assume this is the old Masters site. The big question is will it mean anything for the Bunnings site at Mile End? Also is there any news on the rejected Bunnings site at Panora...

It's not being built on parkland.
Get over it and stop whinging.
He's just saying no, someone told us that's ok.

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

Yeah, for the Torrens to flood that high would also involve it flooding over the weir, meaning that water level is all the way to the coast. If Adelaide somehow got that flooded then we've lost the entire coastline already. :lol:

I dunno if it's just been the lighting or time of day that I've walked past but it doesn't look that great in person - material looks very cheap. I'll wait until a few more levels get done up before I come to a proper conclusion. Yeah, the concrete looks awful. I just assumed it had yet to be coate...

JAKJ, I'm sure there are many that agree with your comments, however, I'm not one of them. We all dont have to agree on these issues and robust debate should be encouraged. Its important that each side present sound, rational arguments to fully express why they feel a certain way without being pige...

This is the problem, entitled people right now that would sell their grandchild's soul if it gave them an extra buck now. If you don't get a fancy park now, future generations don't get a fancy park? Why is there an automatic assumption that by doing something now will ruin it for future generation...

Do people really think the redevelopment of Adelaide Oval finished with eastern and southern stands being rebuilt? :secret: No, absolutely not. Eventually I'd love to see them get rid of the hill, put the scoreboard in a museum and finish the job off properly by closing in the stadium from all side...

[COM] Re: Westfield Marion (Extension)

So if one parks, have meal before a movie, goes to the movie, have a dessert after movie they will in most cases go over the 3 hours free parking. Even a bowling game can take a while then you got season players that might want to practise or have coffee and nibbles at the bowling alley cafe. Why s...

This result is not deliberate. No one demolishes buildings such as these to establish a f carpark. Something has happened which has obviously cost the original developer a fair bit of money.
Yeah, it's not like Adelaide has a history of buildings being knocked down for car parks. :lol:

Interesting that the unions don't seem to complain about another expansion to an already massive shopping precinct, which will bring in even more big chain stores, international ones at that. Somehow deregulated shopping hours, or longer shopping hours, will hurt small business and they are all ove...

I was at the Wine Centre Monday morning and whilst not bustling, there were a significant number of people there, both at the Café and the information tour upstairs. The Wine Centre cafe is criminally unknown in Adelaide. Great food and obviously awesome wine. The Wine Centre is going to be a fairl...

If/when the site opposite gets developed (as seems likely) a lot of it will be blocked off anyway.

Big shame that they seem to be cheapening the whole thing though.

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

Agreed mostly. But on the contrary, fuck the parklands, if a patch of parkland isn't being utilized to it's fullest potential as parkland and nobody has any intention of doing so, then do something with it. If that had been the attitude for the last century then there would be no parklands apart fr...
