I think The Standard development is dead. Noticed some of the hoarding taken down yesterday, which put my hopes up that they were getting ready for construction, but it seems to have been scrubbed from the internet — the website now redirects to Arcadian Property with no mention of it anymore on their website, all social media promotion has been deleted, and the one remaining link on the Life More Interesting site leads to a 404.
Confirmed.

Off the plan purchasers are getting their deposits back in the next couple of days.

Are you aware of the reason? Just didn't sell enough?

Assume so, although the "sales office talk" was that it was selling well, for what that's worth.

The numbers obviously couldn't be made to stack up, for some reason or another.

Not sure it's really part of the TOD but interestingly the warehouses owned by Raptis & Sons on the corner of Port Road and Gibson Street (i.e. opposite the Gov) are being demolished today.

Can't find any development applications for this site, but hopefully whatever ends up here won't have any negative impact on the Gov's live music.

I wonder if this will end up being used as an extension to Raptis' pay & display car park in the short-medium term...

With the proximity of the tram stop probably.
An office tower or two would be good on that corner.

Plans have been lodged for a microbrewery, with restaurant and retail, for Plant 3. Happy days!

I was at Bowden the other weekend, and as I hadn't been there for quite a while, I was surprised how much vacant land is still yet to be redeveloped.

As Bowden has been earmarked as the preferred potential site for the Athletes Village should Adelaide bid & win the CW games, maybe that will fill in a big chunk of the vacant land?

Has anyone seen any concept plans for a potential athletes village there?

I hadn't heard that Bowden was on the cards, but I'd find that disappointing if so. There's so much undeveloped land in the city that it'd be far more desirable to catalyse. Bowden doesn't need the spark; The Standard notwithstanding, it's been selling well and will continue to do so.

In the city, however, there's huge parcels of vacant land from long-failed developments around the Bus Station, on Gouger Street and on Sturt Street. Not to mention the soon to be vacated Wakefield St hospital and several Housing Trust townhouse groups around Carrington Street due for renewal (build apartments for athletes and afterwards transfer an increased portion to social housing). Equally, plenty of large sites in the west end of Currie & Hindley that could become a student village linked to UniSA post-games. Perhaps even two or more of the above. I'm not convinced of the need for a sole, consolidated village; our city is compact enough that the athletes can still experience games camaraderie and, ultimately, our investment needs to benefit the city longterm.

I thought the current W&C hospital at North Adelaide was nominated as a potential site after they vacate.

That'd be a great site, but I'm not sure it'd meet the games schedule given the new W&C is unlikely to be complete before 2025. And hospital construction has a way of blowing out..

Bowden has been earmarked as a potential site for the Athletes Village.

But I am not sure if that was the Games Committee preference as they have had reps visit Adelaide twice in the past 6 months or so for feasibility tours, or if its the State Govts preference.
