I really think that the tram to North Adelaide should be built next (wait, wait, don't say he's posting in the wrong thread) so that the media can say "tram to no-where!"

Because in Adelaide terms that means "development" is immediately activated in this area...…

So if we have a North Adelaide tram suddenly the Le Cornu site will be developped....

It looks like 9-10 stories in several buildings on Brougham Place. Why would they not want to have a signature building of at least 12 stories on a large site right in the middle of North Adelaide?

Is the airport final approach actually over the Le Cornu site and require a lower absolute height than is allowed a few blocks further south? Or do planes actually fly over the parklands and Torrens then turn? Even so, there seems to be ten stories on Strangways Terrace in the direct line, so a couple stories higher would still be below any glide path that clears that one.

I'm almost inclined to say the ACC should purchase the site and turn it in to a permanent green space/ public square. Only problem is, it would then be landscaped with dead native grass, a few scraggly eucalypts, and some awful indigenous interpretative paving. It would become another space for homeless squatters, that will be encouraged to stay put by well meaning charities. Perhaps this would be justice for the urban elites like Anne Moran. Maybe some large metal words that spell out "forest of nightmares" to complete the picture.

From "Your Say" (Adelaide City Council newsletter)

"Eighty Eight O'Connell
Submissions for the Expression of Interest (EOI) phase for the development of the site closed on 30 November. Council is pleased that a number of submissions were lodged, indicating strong interest from a range of potential local, national and international developers.
Evaluation of the proposals is occurring now, with an update being provided to Council after this phase is completed."

I have heard a rumour that Maras has been chosen [or is at least the front runner] to develop this site.

That would be f**king right. Maras was the reason that Bob Wallis from Wallis Cinemas couldn't never anything going on this site, and why Makris struggled in the early days of owning the site to get planning approval. Maras was forever in the ear of the ACC, trying to prevent anything too large-scale from a retail perspective from happening which is why the ACC kept pushing for a multi-level carpark.

Drove past recently and the lawn area actually looks nice. Perhaps Adelaide’s next town square?

Maybe they could build a bunker on the site, to act as a safe space for the good folk of North Adelaide the next time a rock and roll band is a tad loud or the lights of the AO are a little too bright?

891ABC on Wednesday morning just gone announced that any development of the site is "atleast 3 years off" & everyone's favorite city counciler Anne Moran plans on putting forward a motion for a change of use of the site to carparking (until such time as it's developed) at the next city council meeting. The logic behind this phenomenal idea is basically the more car parks available = the more people that'll head down to O'Connell street for a few $10.50 pints.
