looks good :-) very much like how the upper levels have been recessed/set back from the footpath.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

Looks good, and will certainly find a market. There's a lot more money down Victor Harbor way than there used to be.

I wonder how popular this will be with rich snobby kids come Schoolies Week.

looks very ordinary and very short, but still much better than nothing at all.

Hope this eventually brings more $$, ppl and taller buildings to this part of SA :cheers:

Apologies for reviving such an old thread, but with a bit of spare time on my hands this afternoon and not having been to Victor in years, I suddenly wondered whether this proposal had come to fruition. Apparently not...

http://www.victorharbortimes.com.au/new ... torypage=0

According to this article, the major development status expired in October last year. Latest NearMap image (19 April 2012) shows no discernable activity on the site. I must say, I tend to agree with the anti-mall sentiments expressed earlier in this thread, so no progress here certainly isn't a bad thing at all IMHO.

Anyone have any further info?

As in don't get my hopes up that the development will proceed? Or don't get my hopes up that the residents of Encounter Bay will be able to enjoy a quiet and peaceful lifestyle for too much longer...? :wink:

New Granite Island tourism proposal to allow swimming and hand feeding of fish

TOURISTS could hand-feed fish, swim with them and view them from an underwater observatory if the State Government approves a proposed marine tourism venture at Granite Island.

Sustainability, Environment and Conservation Minister Ian Hunter said the government would assess the proposal, which would be based at the island’s kiosk.

It would allow visitors the opportunity to swim with a range of different fish species, hand-feed fish from a viewing platform, view them from an underwater observatory and learn more about South Australia’s marine life.

The project has been put forward by Oceanic Victor Pty Ltd directors Tony Santic and Michael Dyer and the company’s adviser Emma Forster, who approached the Office of the State Coordinator-General about it.

Mr Hunter said it was an opportunity to reinvigorate Granite Island, but must pass through all relevant approvals.

“We’re very keen to explore every opportunity to generate tourism ventures that make the most of our clean, green image,” he said.

“This proposal has the potential to promote Granite Island and the Fleurieu region, and develop an exciting visitor experience that works hand-in-hand with the region’s marine parks.”

Mr Hunter said the proposal had already passed through the first stage of the process, involving “a preliminary assessment of whether it delivers good outcomes for the community”.

A business case must now be drawn up and assessed by revelant government agencies.

If the project is given the green light, the government would then begin contract negotiations with Oceanic Victor Pty Ltd.

Mr Hunter said the community would be given the opportunity to have their say on various aspects of the project, with details to be announced in the near future.

No mention in that article about the fairy penguins (of which there are supposedly fewer than 50 remaining), but apparently this could be good news for them. The proposal will also cover the penguin centre, which has been unleased since January and is currently being kept open by the state government. It seems there are some quite dedicated people working behind the scenes to ensure the penguins don't become extinct on the island.

I have no affiliation with this group, just the childhood memories of many years spent walking across to Granite Island and being able to see penguins, even in the middle of the day. It would be a great shame to lose them. Fingers crossed this proposal will help to support the penguin centre and the work it does.

From the Victor Harbor Times:
Beyond Today's wellbeing centre in Hayborough will cost $34-36 million

Aug. 18, 2015, 11:30 p.m.

An artist's impression of the $34 - $36 million wellbeing centre to be built by Beyond Today.


Development company Beyond Today will start construction of its wellbeing centre in September/October, investing $34 to 36 million into the region.

Local builder South Coast Constructions will begin the development of the medical centre first, which is planned to be completed and operational in 2016.

Expressions of interest are being taken for the health pods in the Wellbeing Centre.

The development will include the medical centre, health pods for dentistry and podiatry and high and low care nursing for about 100 residents.

Beyond Today director Steve Wright said there was a demand for a health and wellbeing precinct.

"The new Resthaven facility at Port Elliot has been a success and has proven there is demand for facilities which we are proposing," Mr Wright said.

"It is under supplied.

"The Wellbeing Centre will have all the qualities that consist of our housing development at Hayborough.

"It will be green, energy efficient, have open space and plenty of car parking available."


The development will be situated on four hectares of land adjacent to the Fleurieu Regional Aquatic Centre (FRAC) where construction started in late July.

The FRAC is located on the corner of Ocean and Waterport roads on four hectares of land, which was gifted to the City of Victor Harbor and Alexandrina councils by the Wright family, who are the directors of Beyond Today.

"The area where the Wellbeing Centre is to be built has always been earmarked for health and education," Mr Wright said.

"We could build 60 homes on it, but prefer a wellbeing precinct instead."

What is a 'health pod'? I googled it and not sure if it's the right thing :sly:

I also find the word 'Wellbeing' makes me cringe a bit

Greenhills Adventure Park closes its doors for the final time this Sunday (May 1st) after 34 years to make way for a housing estate which they want to get started on by mid year (was a segment on channel 7 news tonight). Went there recently for one last hurrah, will miss the place.
