[COM] Re: U/C: Rundle Place | 76m | 15lvls | Retail & Office

Anyone know an opening date?
Must be soon as I notice Harris Scarfe have started their closing down sale of their temporary store.

Re: New Retail in the CBD

I think a cinema complex on the top floor of the Myer Centre would be fantastic. They did a similiar development on the top floor of the Melbourne Central complex when the Daimaru department store moved out a few years back & it's very successful. Cinemas are always busy and there's surrounding bars...

Re: COM/PRO: Glenelg Ent Complex (Beachhouse & Water World)

I agree with Crawf that Greenhills adventure park should be developed into a fully fledged theme park / waterpark, and I also think it should have hotel accommodation (a bit like sea world on the gold coast). Perfect location, and it's unlikely any nimbys would get in its way there. Nice idea, but ...

Centro Colonades

Does anyone have any news on the about to begin addition of a Harris Scarfe home store to Centro Colonades?

Is it part of a redevelopment of the centre, or are they taking over the lease of a vacant store - maybe Cheap as Chips?

Re: Old David Jones & John Martins photos?

I agree with your comments Adelaidian. I also have very fond memories of visiting Rundle Mall when I was young in the 70's and 80's. Although both Myer & Johnnies were both at my local shopping centre (Marion) the city stores were always great to explore - especially the big toy department at Johnni...

Ben wrote:Yes it is now under construction. Funnily enough the sign on site said retail tenancies avialable from September 2012. they must be keen to get a move on with this one.
I guess it makes sense to have the tenancies available coming into summer - peak season at the bay.

[COM] Re: #APP: Centro Arndale Redevelopment - $35m

Source was a stockbroker retail sector research analyst. Their view is that DJ's will close 2 stores within the next 3 years - West Lakes plus Macarthur Square in NSW. Macarthur Square is a given - as this was one of the stores they offloaded to Harris Scarfe and then had to take back when they went...

[COM] Re: #APP: Centro Arndale Redevelopment - $35m

Arndale struggles from a sales point of view - not sure what it's MAT would be, but I am guessing no where near what West Lakes is. in my view, it is the worst of Adelaide's 6 regional shopping centres, and just isn't in the same league as the other 5. The Harris Scarfe store there trades very poorl...

Re: Old David Jones & John Martins photos?

Like others I have great memories of that Huge Toy department from back in the day, as well as the lego world expos and other toy exhibitions. I had forgotten about the lego world expos until I read your post. I used to love the expos when I was young - lining up for what seemed like forever to get...

David Jones are planning on opening smaller format stores across the country which will be modelled on Perth's Claremont Quarter store. These stores will be under 7,000 sqm. So it's got me thinking.. sure Burnside has Australia's largest Zara store, CK Jeans, Oxford and a host of other upmarket bra...

Mobil has sold it's Australian retail operations.

The SA sites were purchased by On The Run.

Re: New Retail in the CBD

It wouldn't be surprising if the Myer Centre is struggling, given that 2 of their 8 commercial floors have been completely vacant for years and the whole centre has had its original concept destroyed and become a boring bland and not particularly inviting set up narrow vertical arcades. Maybe it wa...

Re: Is the Chelsea Cinema Being Demolished??

Here it is. Burnside Council has finally announced the details of the new lease. Weird that they chose to do so late on Christmas eve. Almost suggests they wanted no one to notice. No Advertiser tomorrow so presumably it won't make the press. I wonder if Wallis couldn't make teh cinema profitable wh...

Re: Is the Chealsea Cinema Being Demolished??

Based on what I have read: Ownership of the Chelsea cinema & the vacant block of land next door is to be retained by the Burnside council & leased to a new tenant. Wallis have been told their proposal for a new lease is not going to be approved & they need to vacate by December 31. This leaves 4 par...
