Commenting on the story: Charter Hall secures federal agency as anchor tenant for King William St tower
Once again, city development is predicated upon Government departments making the move into luxurious new buildings from their existing buildings.
This is neither “growth” nor “development”. The key word in the article was “relocate” existing staff. No additional staff, and lots of existing buildings left empty as the public servants “relocate” to other areas of the city.
Just as cafes and lunch providers near the new building will benefit from the development, another group of existing cafes etc will lose their business. Seems just like shifting the deck chairs on the Titanic, really.
Encouraging organisations that are not based in SA to relocate would represent real growth and development. – Peter Macdonald
Commenting on the story: ‘Over-enthusiastic’ Butler loses energy and climate role in Labor reshuffle
Does removal of Mark Butler from the climate and energy portfolio mean Australia’s Government and Opposition will both defy efforts of the Biden administration and others to step up global action on climate?
When will the ALP recognise that it will be attacked by some vested interests whatever its policy on climate, and that the best way to respond is a strong climate policy that clearly articulates benefits to people like the one the US Democrats successfully campaigned with in 2020? – Jim Allen
Commenting on the story: Green light for $400m Central Market Arcade project
I hardly think that saying that Angelakis, Haighs etc are new to the Central Market is entirely true. They’ve been part of the Arcade complex for ages so have merely moved due to the impending closure of the arcade. – Mark Roberts
What a monstrosity. Nice to have a vision, but under what part of the Adelaide council’s charter is such a project justified.
It’s totally out of balance with the area, skyline and well everything else that could be wrong. The heritage aspect of the whole area will be so undermined.
If there was a need for such a building then surely it could have been designed in line with the character of all buildings in the area. Horrible, simply horrible. – Royce Wilson
