Not surprised, heard nothing in regards to it. Bad move, though. Opening towards the end of Summer could break the success of this cinema.

Coincidentally I strolled past this earlier today. Looks good, although i'm not sure how the gravel garden will hold up with hordes of manic children running in every direction. I envisage these modest size stones getting scattered around adjacent paved areas...
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

From the Advertiser:

Holdfast Bay Council to oppose height increases on Jetty Rd to allow buildings up to five storeys

January 26, 2016 11:05am

HOLDFAST Bay Council will push to ban buildings taller than three storeys on popular Jetty Rd, amid concerns outdoor dining areas and heritage buildings would be overshadowed.


However, the council will not oppose height increases to 12 storeys in many other areas of Glenelg.

Under a State Government rezoning plan, buildings five storeys high would be allowed along Jetty Rd, and 12-storey developments along the South Esplanade, Colley Tce, Anzac Highway and Adelphi Tce.

Mayor Stephen Patterson said the council did not want tall buildings blocking out the sun to outdoor dining areas.

“We’re concerned with protecting buildings and footpaths on the southern side from overshadowing by higher buildings on the northern side, so that Jetty Rd continues to be a great place to visit, shop and dine out,” Mr Patterson said.

The rezoning plan aims to help accommodate future population growth.


The government pushed for 10-storey height limits across much of Glenelg, including Jetty Rd, when the plan was announced in May but the latest plan includes more specific heights various areas after negotiation with the council.



The government also plans to reduce the number of carparks developers are required to provide for apartment blocks, which Mr Patterson said could put greater pressure on Jetty Rd and the foreshore.

Under the changes, two-bedroom apartments would only require one park, instead of 1.5.




The council also wants the entire community to be consulted on planned high-density developments, rather than just immediate neighbours.

Holdfast Bay’s submission on the DPA, endorsed at last week’s council meeting, also says:

■ THE council does not support expanding heights in historic Canning and Durham streets;

■ UNDER the changes, state heritage-listed buildings on the South Esplanade would not be adequately protected; and


■ EXISTING policies protecting views to the sea or waterfront should be kept.

Holdfast Bay Residents’ Alliance president Jack Messenger said residents were concerned about the 12-storey areas near homes, and less worried about allowing taller buildings on Jetty Rd.

“I would have thought the encroachment of high-rise on residential areas was infinitely more important than the problems in Jetty Rd,” Mr Messenger said.

He said traffic was already “out of control” in Glenelg and more apartments with limited parking would not help.

Liberal Morphett MP Duncan McFetridge is in favour of the height changes.

“The bay is a fantastic place to live and the million visitors a year show people want to be here,” Mr McFetridge said.

Jetty Rd Mainstreet Committee chairman Mark Faulkner said a denser population in Glenelg would be good for traders as long as the area’s unique character was maintained.

Mr Rau said it was not appropriate to comment on the rezoning plan during the consultation period.

Consultation is open until Thursday, February 11.

A public information session will be held at St Peter’s Church, Torrens Square, Glenelg on Wednesday, February 3, from 4pm-6pm.

What this guy said. Seems Holdfast continues to be one of the least cooperative councils in accomodating the growth anticipated in the metropolitan plan.

Actually, I have to agree with the council on this point. Jetty Road (to me at least) is like Adelaide's East End. We need to preserve our interesting streetscape to attract visitors and diners to this part of Glenelg. By all means, add the towers around the rest of Glenelg, but let's keep Jetty Road a bit special. We need to have main streets like this for the sake of the character of the city.

Exactly. Character streets need thought in planning to help them retain what makes them... them. Let developers move in with their contemporary, generic designs and that character is lost.

Rundle Street, Gouger Street, Jetty Road, The Parade (? not sure if it's too late for The Parade) need things like retention of street facing character buildings, setbacks for taller buildings so they don't become canyons, and so on. Not a blanket ban on progress, just well thought out planning that is driven by the outcome, not just rules enforced for rules' sake.

Quite a few, but they are hard to see behind all the street level commercial façades.

From the Advertiser
Australia’s first GU Film House to open in Glenelg, four years after former cinema demolished

LENELG traders hope this Thursday’s opening of a long-awaited new cinema will help boost business at the beachside suburb as winter sets in.
The new $17 million six-screen complex will be the first GU Film House in Australia.
Jetty Road Mainstreet Management Committee deputy chairman and landlord Con Maios said he expected the complex to improve winter trade and attract more people to make Glenelg their entertainment destination.
“The cinema opens Glenelg up for so many people all along the tram track,” Mr Maios said.
“They get on and off right in front of the cinema — it’s very convenient.
“It definitely will help business,” Mr Maios said.
The opening comes four and a half years after the previous Wallis cinema on Jetty Rd was demolished.
Nearby businesses are looking forward to the opening after two years of construction work at the site on Cowper St between Partridge and Milton streets.
Extreme Boardriders manager Gareth Williams said the cinema was “definitely needed” to draw people to Glenelg.
“We’re all for it and excited about it,” Mr Williams said.
“It can only be positive for Glenelg.”

Higher-density development to transform beachside Glenelg

Parts of one of Adelaide’s premier seaside strips will be rezoned for higher density residential and commercial development – in a move that will allow building heights of up to 12 storeys, InDaily can reveal.

Planning Minister John Rau told InDaily he had signed off on a development plan amendment, to be gazetted next week, to allow “some greater density” in parts of Glenelg, including the waterfront district encompassing Colley Reserve and Adelphi Tce and along the main retail strip of Jetty Rd.

“There’s basically investment ready to go down at Glenelg… we’re reasonably optimistic this will generate activity at the Bay,” Rau said.

He said it was a “relatively compact area we’re talking about here”, but believed there were “people holding property there who’d be interested in getting on with development”.

“I do believe there’s a couple of developers floating around the place who are very keen to go forward with this,” he said, but emphasised that the planning strictures were “not worked out according to development applications”.

The changes will see building heights increase along much of Jetty Road from two storeys to five – and up to six in one area – while allowable heights along Adelphi Terrace with increase from five storeys to 12.

“It’s a combination of responsible planning solutions and a reasonable prospect of the land economically being able to handle that expansion of growth,” Rau said.

He pledged the move would “retain the character elements along Jetty Rd, which has got that shopping strip quality”.

Developer Andrew Taplin, whose company manages much of the commercial precinct as well as owning property portfolios in the area, told InDaily the change was “fantastic news”.

“I just think it’s absolutely needed, and it’s probably the biggest news and most positive news almost since Glenelg was formed,” he said.

“I can identify probably half a dozen sites that we’d be lodging applications for almost immediately.”

He said a majority of respondents during the public consultation were in favour of change, arguing “we need construction jobs, we need development on arterial roads, but what’s more important is long-term sustainable employment”.

“At the moment we’ve got sites that are not commercial to develop, and as a result they’ve been run down,” he said.

“This decision is not just good for retailers and for Glenelg, but it’s great for the state and for everyone involved.”

It follows the Government’s 2012 push to increase allowable building heights along major roads on the city rim, including Greenhill Rd to the south, Fullarton Rd in the east Churchill and Prospect Roads north of the city.

Rau said that move meant “we’re starting to see parts of those areas have quite a development boom going on there”, most notably along Churchill and Prospect Roads.

“The original impetus was looking for areas where there would be scope and economic viability in higher density,” he said.

Further plans to broaden the remit have been shelved pending the Government’s review of its “30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide”, first published in 2010.

Rau said the changes would “take into account changes in public tastes in terms of what they’re looking for in accommodation”.
