Re: News & Discussion: Trains

Just a thought. I know the amount of re-structure it would involve to undertake such a project. But has it been considered to move Interstate rail back into Adelaide railway station? Obviously, a standard gauge line would need to be constructed to allow such a task, and they'd have to build a platfo...

Can someone explain the excitement over the opening of the Apple Store? I've been to a few in my short time on this earth and to me it's a store that is more refined to what say Harvey Norman or JB Hi-Fi offer. Nothing too flash.. :?

I'd have expected Top-Shop too, as well as Zara. Both are expanding rapidly around Australia. Fingers crossed for some last minute surprises!

Also, does any-one know if Officeworks will connect up with the arcade? Or will it only be accessible from Grenfell Street?

The blame goes to the organisers of the Clipsal, they changed from their usual weekend to avoid Future Music Festival and WOMAD. Which was stupid. Why? Err, because WOMAD is only a couple of hundred metres away, and smooth urban sounds clash with roaring engines, low flying jets, and post race conc...

I think we need to be very careful here. It's better to have Soundwave on the same weekend as the Clipsal 500 then to not have it at all. Honestly Soundwave was big this year (40,000 people) and would have drawn a couple of thousand spectators from interstate I am sure. It's a national festival and...

Do you know what would be awesome? If when the courts are moved from the former Moore's Department Store building, they pulled the Hilton and the Central Market arcade + Coles down and built a Casino with a new high-rise hotel where the Hilton is, whilst retaining the old building as the centrepiece...

Otherwise, I'd highly recommend a DFO outlet on that side of the bridge, we're yet to have a DFO in SA, and it'd be a fitting city location for such a precinct. It being at such an important place, a DFO is not a good idea. I'd rather have something on the entertainment side. Aquarium, theme based ...

I can see Officeworks moving into the space currently occupied by Harris Scarfe. Perfect size and location Also Patrick, regarding your post in the Rundle Place thread...

Bit off topic, but I can't seem to find a forum that is home to general Rundle Mall banter... I've been poking around the Mall recently to see where potential shopping arcades could be re-built and further harnessed. With the Renaissance Building now having undergone upgrades for Kmart's arrival, I ...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

On the topic of CBD retail; two stores I note that aren't operating in the CBD are Big W and Officeworks. I'd be interested to see how long it takes for Big W to hit the CBD and complete with Kmart. The only way I could see either store moving into the CBD however is if they build a new arcade withi...
