Yes, it opened yesterday, & I had a look at it today - quite large, with self checkout lanes, and out of sight from the entrance on Seaview Road, which is why I couldn't see it previously. A wide passage connects Seaview & Military Rd, with the Foodland opening on the length of one side, and not much apart from a blank wall & 1 shop entrance on the other side.

No end in site for Henley Beach discharge

* Local News

2 Dec 11 @ 10:54am by Lia Harris


GROUNDWATER will continue to be pumped onto Henley Beach from a nearby construction site even after the work is finished, its developer says.

Richard Antunes, who is behind the new Baju and H20 apartment complexes on Seaview Rd, said testing of the groundwater, which was being pumped onto the beach every hour, showed it was not contaminated with chemicals dangerous to human health.

The water has been displaced during work to construct the three-level underground carpark for the apartment blocks. It has been pumped onto the beach near Henley Square since October.

Mr Antunes said he was working with the council to find a solution to the excessive water pressure in the groundwater pipe, which was causing it to gush out onto the beach.

Some inside views - it's an L-shaped mall, something like Hilton s/c, with a travelator from the carpark & Military Road. A lot of temporary walling in place,
where new shops will go as they are leased ...

Bad news I'm afraid. I hope this serves as a wake up call for the state government to remove planning powers from ALL councils, and not just the ACC.

We can no-longer aford to have pensioner, heritage and other nostalgic groups threaten the growth of our city.

From the Messenger:
Five-storey Henley complex rejected

Local News8 Dec 11 @ 11:39am by Lia Harris

A FIVE-STOREY apartment complex planned for Henley Beach has been rejected by Charles Sturt Council’s Development Assessment Panel.

More than 50 people attended Charles Sturt Council’s Development Assessment Panel (DAP) meeting last night where the application, from developer Richard Antunes, was refused.

The Western Adelaide Coastal Residents Association spoke against the development, raising concerns including potential traffic problems, overshadowing of neighbouring properties and a lack of parking space.

The DAP voted unanimously to oppose the application, citing concerns including the height of the development.

They also referred to problems associated with groundwater beneath from Mr Antunes’ Baju and H20 complexes, also under construction on Seaview Rd, being dispersed on the beach.

The Seaview Rd complex, valued at about $40 million, includes 22 shops, 66 apartments and an underground car park

So 5 storeys at a town centre, beach location is too high?

Ludicrous

Five-storey Henley complex rejected
Make it taller, with a development cost of $10,000,001.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

What makes this worse, is I believe the developers were going to inject up to $1 million dollars towards upgrading the tired looking Henley Square precinct.

This Residential Association like many others of their kind are a bunch of idiotic fools that have nothing to else do in their life but whinge. They whinged about that unsightly block being developed, whinged about extensions to the Ramsgate, currently whinging about Henley Beach's already established nightlife and now this proposal. I bet some of these of the people that were so vocal towards Baju, are happily enjoying it's new facilities. I also bet some of these people moved in the area over the past 10 years knew very well that Henley Beach is already a very popular suburb day and night.

In a way I'm not surprised this was rejected, Charles Sturt are becoming useless with them still wasting rate payers money towards the pathetic St Clair saga and those pointless billboards along Port Road that achieve very little. While this Residential Association and Local Messenger have been running a scare-campaign acting like this was a 500m apartment building that was going tower over Henley Beach :roll:

What needs to happen, is that all the central councils merge into one major city council. Most of them are useless, especially the circus down at Glenelg.

Take a look at this report from the TV show - SA Life. It shows a historic Henley Beach that looks much more exciting and far more busier, even more so than the current peak summer days. Very interesting...

Agree.

Too often, the loudest voice and minority groups gets its way. They are anti-progress of any sort with a raft of trivial objections. Reminds me of the park lands association who would rather see a dust bowl and no or limited human activity than allow some contemporary use of the park lands (Victoria Park ex-racecourse debacle). Many residents of local councils tend to be apathetic to local issues (low voter turnouts to council elections) and the loudest voices get most attention in the local media.

As the video highlighted by Crawf shows, these seaside locations such as Henley Beach, Semaphore, Glenelg were connected to the city by the public transport of the day. The beach, teahouses, jetty, amusement parks etc. provided facilities and services to the crowds. How would the naysayers cope with those sorts of crowds in their patch?

Henley Square and surrounding buildings fell into some disrepair in the 60s and 70s and the amusements disappeared. Vandalism added to the blight and general rundown nature of this area. It's been great to see the area being rejuvenated in the past decade and more accommodation built so that more people can enjoy this brilliant location.

These beach nodes are ripe for revival and increased residential densities. Adelaide needs to grow and urban sprawl has to be curtailed. The beachside locations around existing transport hubs, shops, cafés, hotels and leisure/entertainment are ideal for future redevelopment.

For heaven's sake, 5-10 levels is not exactly high rise a la Gold Coast style.
