I really hope it doesn't become another infamous abandoned former Le Cornu site!

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Shopping centres everywhere are looking to fill spaces left by retailers that are no longer trading. Entertainment such as Timezone is one option to meet that need. Timezone in Surfers Paradise has just been completely rebuilt. It includes much more than just video games! I know Adelaide has had tro...

John Martins carpark on North Terrace had a multi level apartment block built on top of it.

[PRO] Re: 10 Anzac Highway | Kaufland Supermarket

Probably a better example of rejuvenation is the demolition of the Clipsal factory in Bowden, and it's ongoing replacement with a major and distinctive residential development. Another is the redevelopment of the old RAH, and yet another the replacement of Underdale university with a high quality ne...

[PRO] Re: 10 Anzac Highway | Kaufland Supermarket

Just found this, as the LeCornu store (and the famous sign) come down.

I find this sort of thing fascinating for some reason!

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Everybody complaining about this, like this is something new we should be "embarrassed" by or whatever, should at least look up Levitz Funiture. http://i.imgur.com/swRIJsA.jpg Look familiar? I just found this information in the asic insolvency notices. Lists "Levitz Australia Proprietary Limited" a...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Just got my first look at the new Foodland. Not impressed at all that the building still has signs from the early 90s saying "Citi Centre Arcade", and on the entrance doors the signs are new and read "Rundle Square". It's just lazy. As for actual supermarket, not too bad and will serve a valuable r...

[PRO] Re: 10 Anzac Highway | Kaufland Supermarket

Drove past on Anzac Highway yesterday. The whole front facade has been completely removed and the building is unrecognisable. I'd say once they have completed any further necessary preparatory work full demolition will be very fast, as it's basically just a shed without the facade. Seems a bit odd t...

[COM] Re: Vicinity Colonnades (Extension) | $52m

Looks good, but one thing I hate is when shopping centres do multiple refurbishments in different styles. Given that Colonnades recently built an extension (Aldi mall) I would like to believe that this and hopefully subsequent upgrades will be to make the rest of the centre match the style of the Al...

[COM] Re: Armada Arndale (Redevelopment) | $200m

Ok well to clear up any confusion, it was called Westfield Kilkenny when Westfield first purchased it, but Westfield noticed most customers still called it Arndale, so once the Arndale company was no longer in business Westfield adopted the name!

The subsequent owners since have kept the name too!

I'm positive it was Westfield Kilkenny. Arndale is just what people called it. Although interestingly I did see an article from when Westfield sold their share in it referring to it as Westfield Arndale.
Clearly you didn't look at the above video or photos!

I now just happen to live very close to one of the other Australian Arndale centres, at Springwood, Queensland.

That one is still called Arndale (just "Arndale", no prefix or suffix), and is now owned by a company called Retail First.

I'm glad it's not called Retail First Arndale! 😆
