Any word on the former City Harris Scarfe? Are Spotlight going to reopen the store?

Renew Adelaide are looking after some of the space. I imagine any plans have been delayed though.

Conversely, Cafe Amore on Hindmarsh Square still hasn't re-opened post-Covid, and all the furniture now has "Lot" number stickers......

On the plus side, it appears work is now started on the new awning/facade for Rundle Square, or at least its south face.

More exterior work on Rundle Square where it looks like the old facade will just be completed covered over:

I can't wait for my grandchildren to uncover a preserved postmodern masterpiece from the 1980s when this is eventually re-developed/demolished in 50 years!

Wing-It Sports Bar (former Bull & Bear) on King William St still hasn't re-opened, despite the COVID restrictions being lifted.

This location has always struggled.

A retail space fronting a public square with 0 ground level activation on the square. Seriously?

There will be some sort of salad or smoothie bowl place next to the SA Health entrance (other side from the supermarket), but it did strike me as stupid that the cafe inside Foodland didn't include even a window servery to the square.
