Demolition has commenced this morning and they're not mucking about. Planet will be unrecognisable by the end of the weekend.

Re: News & Developments: Bowden TOD

[PRO] Re: 108 Franklin Street | 68m | 2 x 19 Levels | Hotel and Apartments

That article is incorrect on one detail: the Publishers Hotel on Franklin St will be demolished and replaced with the new hotel façade. However, the brick warehouse façades down the side streets will be admirably retained. Plans here: https://www.saplanningcommission.sa.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file...

Thanks for the shots EBG.

IMO, the nicest of these city fringe devs has been the one at the top of George St, Parkside.

Re: New $55m pool floated for bus depot.

I think if they're rebuilding in the city, it should be a competition-grade facility (50 m pool, diving etc). I like the idea of an aquatic sports centre, though I'd situate it west of Morphett St bridge next to the river so rowing can be integrated. To tie in with BioMed City precinct, it could hav...

Despite being promised for release nearly a year ago, and despite council purchasing the site 3 years ago to 'end the delays', plans will now not be shown to the public until next year. Article at InDaily:

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

The Endota Spa is already open on level 1 of ACP. It's been there since they closed on Rundle Street (which has remained vacant but for a current popup box office for the Adelaide Film Festival). That hoarding is just the vacancy where L'Occitane closed.

Re: Beer Garden

What surprises me is that they talk that [macro] beer sales have been declining 20% over the last decade, but it was only 5 years ago they opened the expansion to the brewery with an increase in production. Something doesn't add up there. Not sure who could possibly take over the site — the only br...
