Exact same thing was happening in Greece since the '90s.
Exit on the right in the direction of travel.

From ABC Online:
Adelaide seafront eyesore to go
Updated June 27, 2012 11:30:57

One of Adelaide's less-attractive seafront buildings is being demolished.

After years of delays, approval has finally been given for the Henley Surf Life Saving Club to be redeveloped.

Planned new premises have been architecturally designed to fit more attractively into the Henley Square precinct.

The old club building went up during the 1950s and had extensions added in the 1980s and 90s.

Surf club president Neville Fielder said many club members and others in the local community were keen to witness the demolition, which is starting today.

Part of the funding for new facilities has been raised over the past six years by club members rowing a surf boat 68 kilometres from Stansbury on Yorke Peninsula to Henley Beach in Adelaide.

Mr Fielder says members will continue beach patrols over the summer months despite construction work.

"We've arranged with the City of Charles Sturt to place two small shipping containers in an area in the car park near where our old club was and where our new club will be," he said.

"We'll store our emergency services response equipment in there, so from the point of view of the public and the safety of the public nothing will change."
cheers,
Rhino

Yes, just about anything should be better than what's there now. But has anybody seen what's proposed to replace it? Is expecting a hydroplane dock for a one hour trip to Stansbury too optimistic?

After a bit of a search around. It's just okay in my opinion.

Fail to see how this has "been architecturally designed to fit more attractively into the Henley Square precinct."

Glad to see that eyesore go.

Fingers crossed this long awaited plan to redevelop Henley Square finally goes ahead very soon.

From AdelaideNow:

This appears like another victory for the NIMBYs

All I ask is to understand what the NIMBYs mean when they say they are not anti-development, but all they want is for 'development to respect the heritage of the area'.

I have never understood this comment. Do these people genuinely think that in the year 2012, developers are going to propose a design from the 1890s?
Developer of complex at Henley Square withdraws appeal application with Environment Resources and Development Court

THE developer of a five-storey apartment complex proposed for Henley Square will not contest its rejection.

An Environment, Resources and Development Court spokeswoman last week confirmed to the Weekly Times Messenger that developer Richard Antunes had withdrawn his appeal on Friday, September 21.

Mr Antunes was appealing against a Charles Sturt Council decision to knock back the development.

Charles Sturt CEO Mark Withers said he did not know why Mr Antunes had withdrawn his appeal.

"No compromise was reached through the appeal process and therefore if Mr Antunes wishes to progress the proposal a new application will need to be lodged with the council," Mr Withers said.

He said he was pleased the council did not have to go through the court process.



The council's (DAP) refused plans for the Seaview Rd complex last December.

It complex would have included 22 shops, 66 apartments and an underground car park.

The development was rejected because of concerns about the height and scale of the development.

The Western Adelaide Coastal Residents Association also spoke against the development last year, raising concerns about traffic problems, overshadowing and lack of parking.

Association president Jim Douglas said he was very "delighted" Mr Antunes had withdrawn the appeal.

"We are hoping that if another plan comes forward it will give proper consideration to the character and culture of the area," Mr Douglas said.

Esplanade resident Paul Laris, who also opposed the development, said the residents "had won a battle".

"I'd like to see the site developed in a way that is in tune with the historic buildings in the area," Mr Laris said.

Mr Antunes did not respond before presstime.

These people seem to never stop whinging. This, the proposed bike path, licensing for night venues to just about anything. I wonder if these people that vigorously opposed the Baju development are happily enjoying a brand new supermarket and facilities. :roll:
