Hoooooold on a second, before you start making such stupid comments let's put some little-known facts out there... Theo was the reason this site was never developed in the first instance. When Bob Wallis owned the site and had intended to build a shopping centre (with cinemas) and sell off the remainder for a residential use, Theo cried to the ACC telling them that they should encourage Wallis to build a carpark on the entire block instead as to avoid spoiling the popularity of his own project on the East End whilst also potentially driving down Wallis' desire to do anything with the site so Theo himself could make an offer. This is how Makris ended up with the site; Wallis sold it to him for pittance so long as Makris allowed space for a cinema complex within whatever he ended up building. I'd rather a carpark or it staying empty than to see Theo take the site over now.
And how does that make Theo responsible for Makris leaving the site undeveloped for the past 16 years? Anyway, if the adjacent North Adelaide Village is anything to go by its probably a good thing that all of Makris' proposals have flopped.

It's that time of the year again. Nothing like rounding up December with some LeCornu spin.

If the parklands are so important why dont they put it to a vote state wide? Or are they afraid the majority will back this hotel..

I'm thinking the announcement will be for a wind farm on the site :)

ACC has bought the site. No idea yet on what will go there.
*Looks at Dyson Airblade Factory* "I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit, it's the only way to be sure"

If the ACC own it..I'll bet you dollars to donuts it wont be a carpark or a highrise
Big infrastructure investments are usually under-valued and & over-criticized while in the planning stage. It's much easier to envision the here and now costs and inconveniences, and far more difficult to imagine fully the eventual benefits.

if the ACC bought it under the eyes of a Labor government, you can bet your bottom dollar that it will be a Gulag.

But well done ACC, happy to pot you when you do blatantly dumb things but this isn't one of them.

Not just a car park. But a mixed use development should have at least some car parking. Underground like across the road would be good.

Looking forward to action happening soon.

Sheraton will no doubt still be looking to set up in Adelaide somewhere. The CBD would be a better location. Wonder if it could be the Adelaidean hotel?

Announcement on the ACC site:

http://www.cityofadelaide.com.au/media- ... h-adelaide

Given the inability of council to decide on how to build a bike lane I'll be very surprised if this process goes smoothly.

Are there numerous councillors with an ideological vendetta against developing the LeCornu site? as there are against protected bike lanes.

More so vested power and influence of North Adelaide residents.
Our state, our city, our future.
