Seems Harris Scarfe is getting Demolished. Which is awesome as that building is one of my most hated. I really wasn't expecting this proposal. A bit of bulk on Rundle Mall and Grenfell st north is exactly what is needed. This could be the upmarket retail plaza we have been waiting for. This could be the first proposal before the new DAC.
also second level addition to Regent Arcade to make it like Adelaide Arcade.Type: Development Application Received
