[U/C] Re: 295-297 Pirie Street | 60m | 16 Levels | Apartments

I would bet my life this won't be completed in November. They had been advertising move in Quarter 3 2019 but have changed to quarter 4. Given its a week out from September and there is still a number of levels to go there's no chance. Maybe their timeline is ambitious, however I got the update dir...

The building to be completed during November and the Purchaser final settlements are planned to commence during December.

Re: Beer Garden

For the third time, I gave you the example where AO DID NOT get EPL fixtures in 2019 and Perth Stadium DID and WHY there was a concern with restricted seating capacity when the EPL was tried at AO once previously. Perth got the repeat business Adelaide DID NOT. Litmus test - what international even...

Re: Beer Garden

Yes, and prepare yourself for more pain. The summer after next (2020/21) Cricket Australia have a four test series penciled in against India. Syd/Mel & Per will get one, and Bri & Ade must vie for the other. I tried to raise this issue about AO slipping down the order in the Adelaide Oval Hotel foru...

EPL club Liverpool played AO, seating capacity fully taken up, additional people missed out due to lack of seated capacity. Some concerns were raised. EPL clubs very financially driven. EPL should be just one example of an annual or biennial event at AO to attract international $$$. But AO cant lur...

[APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

Who is talking about not having vision? Many people who support the hill remaining do so not because of a lack of vision, but because of the vision of it being intentionally unique. You talk about it attracting bigger events, but do you have any examples of events that didn't happen at AO which wou...

[APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

However, the stadium in my opinion looks unfinished without a northern stand. I made a suggestion on how that could be rectified, I als...
