Is there any information on the salt flats? Seems like they're being completely filled in
It'll eventually be developed into housing or industrial. I think there was a longer term plan for housing.
Personally I wouldn't want to live there. 1) Mosquitoes will be a nightmare that close to the mangroves. 2) Wingfield dump & the recycling centers. Even if they don't turn the area into housing, it's high time they moved the dump and associated recycling centers out of the metro area.

The dump proposed to massively expand out towards Torrens Island.
They would give the entire area a new ground level.
I believe that was the top money offer for the land that Labor instead gave a contract out to make an industrial area that failed to eventuate.

Mawson Lakes and Burton etc are not significantly different to the salt pans area.

Not exactly related to the salt pans as such, however I do recall hearing that Veolia are planning in the future, to build a Waste to Energy plant on the land at Gillman that was recently acquired from the government.

I was really hoping that Buckland Park had died a natural death (or been drowned in floods ) but apparently not...

Are they blaming disruptions from having the nearby intersection reconfigured?

It seems that every business that closes lately seems to blame nearby infrastructure development.

Anyone know what happened with the $22.5 M The Viridian project by Barrio Developments? The Viridian website isn't working now. Although I did see some posts by Bert Farina that they're working on student accommodation buildings for Gameau Road Paradise and listed Barrio Developments too.

Anyone know who the hotel operator/developer is of the one that got canned for the Marion Cultural Centre site & if they are looking for other sites to still go ahead?

I don't believe there ever was a formal proposal to build it, the council was only approached.

Marion Hotel from today

Norman, see below I think there was/would have been a formal proposal to build it. Why would council have taken the site to market as an expression of interest campaign to offer the same opportunity to everyone else then? See below.

Marion Council considers selling cultural centre to make way for international hotel chain building
Michelle Etheridge, CoastCity Weekly Messenger
June 14, 2018 5:50pm

A MULTINATIONAL chain wants to establish a hotel at Oaklands Park, in a bid to capitalise on visitors to the SA Aquatic & Leisure Centre, as well as Tonsley and Westfield Marion

The proposal — to build an international-standard hotel at the Marion Cultural Centre site — has prompted Marion Council to call for expressions of interest from accommodation groups to buy or develop the Marion Cultural Centre.

If the project went ahead, it would mean the cultural centre’s library, gallery, theatre and cafe would need to be rebuilt on-site or nearby.

Mayor Kris Hanna would not say which hotel group had approached the council with the proposal.

He said the Marion Cultural Centre property had clear selling points for accommodation providers.

Its appeal included proximity to Adelaide’s biggest shopping complex and premier swimming centre, the Tonsley innovation precinct and Flinders hospital and university.

“It’s a long-identified need,” Mr Hanna said. “The inner south attracts more than 18 million people a year and visitors have few options for accommodation.”

A hotel would be a “major boost” to the local economy.

The area is already zoned to allow a hotel at the cultural centre site.

Bidders expressing an interest in the land would have to say how they would accommodate the cultural centre’s venues either on-site or close by.

“If we can have the facilities that are at least as good as what we’ve got now, and at the same time possibly get a financial return for ratepayers, that would be good,” Mr Hanna said.

The proposed development would be built on the cultural centre property and land between Westfield Marion and the aquatic centre.

Plans for a $174 million upgrade of the Oaklands Crossing include a new walkway between Oaklands Park station and Westfield Shopping centre which could link up with the hotel site.

The two-month expression of interest process will begin late this month.

A report published by the Southern Adelaide Economic Board — a joint venture between Marion and Onkaparinga councils — last year identified the need for more accommodation in the south.

The idea of a hotel at the cultural centre has been discussed behind closed doors at several Marion Council meetings over recent months, including its last meeting on Tuesday night.

Councillors voted to go ahead with the expression of interest process, making the decision public today.

Like I said, the council was approached about developing the site, but there was never any development application lodged.
