And Elizabeth, which eventually became Myer, but could possibly go back to being Harris Scarfe next year when Myer moves out.

Re: News & Discussion: MetroCard System

Funnily enough I now have more sympathy for the Victorian government and the idea of smart cards only as a transport ticket or at least having a ticket before you enter a public transport vehicle. Nope, nobody likes the Victorian MyKi card-only system, it's just designed to rip off visitors and for...

[COM] Re: SWP: Torrens Footbridge | $40m

Maybe we can all go down to Waymouth Street and picket the outside of the Advertiser complaining about crap sensationalist journalism about non issues ie the protests about the bridge. Now that would make an interesting article! :lol: Could make it a nude protest - now THAT will get their attention...

Re: Port Adelaide | Developments & News

That Woolworths was horrible anyway. It didn't even have a proper deli section! Wasn't it a Franklins conversion when Woolies and Foodland bought out Franklins in the early 2000's, hence it being so small and lacking in basic supermarket facilities. The old Colonnades Woolies was just as bad before...

Re: U/C: Adelaide Airport Carpark & Pedestrian Plaza

The thing with the gum trees though it's going to take years for them to grow to a decent level, and who knows if they don't redevelop the area again before then.

Having said that, it doesn't look too bad.

Wasn't Arndale originally a shopping centre chain name itself - Marion also being another 'Arndale' when it first opened.

[U/C] Re: ONH: Tea Tree Plaza Upgrade | $190m

Hopefully we'll see some progress on this soon. I recon the last TTP upgrade (when K-Mart etc was built) was back in 1991. It's long overdue 1997/98 was when K-Mart & Coles were built. Big W & Woolworths were built back in 1991. Not sure when BigW & Woolworths were built, but the expansion you're r...

[U/C] Re: ONH: Tea Tree Plaza Upgrade | $190m

I first remember TTP from 1989. and both Big W and Woolworths were there then. There was also Myer, target, and where Harris Scarfe now is was an Arrow Superfoods (supermarket). The mall layout was more or less as it is now, but only went up as far as Target upstairs. Tea Tree Plus had not been bui...
