That artists rendition is a comical reduction from the early renders, puts some of the bait and switch from the last few years of city high rise proposals to shame. You just knew it was going to end this way after the interim government put the pergola over the top and called it a fine new development.
They're merely spending to say they've done something come 2022.
They think by renovating change rooms and putting a roof over the eastern stand at hindmarsh alone will get us womens world cup games.

We're going to have to wait till Labor gets back in and several years at least for proper investmemt/development.

So I guess this means no basketball or netball in the city for a while, which is a real shame imo. Wonder if the design of this project allows for future expansion, hopefully.
This is just a hack job to say they are doing something.
Also looks like they are tearing down the north stand and rebuilding.
My question is if they could keep the old heritage facade but tear down the stands why dont they
rebuild the stands the entire way around with 2 tiers with corporate facilities.
Possibly raise the current roof structure if required to allow new 2 tier stands and increase capacity.

Very sad news for Basketball, Netball and inner city indoor Event Stadium.

Does not appear that the Liberals are interested in any new multipurpose Indoor Stadium or new Soccer Stadium for a long time to come.
Lets just rehash the old - hey why should they care they arent exactly bidding for events.

No Commonwealth Games
No Adelaide 500 motor sport
what will be next.

Renders look good & the strategy appears sound but the outcome could be like putting lipstick on a pig plus a 6,000 or so crowd is meh. A band-aid fix until a new venue/stadium is built... which could be 10-20 years at this rate.

As others have said, this is just putting lipstick on a pig.

Marshall must be kidding himself thinking this half arsed job will attract events like those in the flashy renders. This is an embarrassment compared to interstate venues like Perth Arena. That is something Adelaide needs, not some shitty open-air tennis court arena.

Do it right, or don't do it at all.
