Springbank Rd is currently being widened by reclaiming some of the WIDE southern side footpath for off street car parking. Fingers crossed - hope they manage to run 2 x 2 lanes the entire length of the road.
I'm hoping for something more like Road diet or Complete Streets thinking than adding extra lanes. Proper bike lanes would be cool, for a start.

800 new homes in $240m Evanston development
SARAH MARTIN From: The Advertiser May 21, 2010 12:01AM

A $240 million, 800-home development will be built near Gawler to tap into the growth potential of the northern suburbs, a major developer announced yesterday.
Devine property group has entered into an agreement with a landowner to develop a 59ha site at Evanston Gardens, 35km north of Adelaide.
The development will provide housing for 2000 residents and will be completed over the next five to six years, with the first stage expected to be ready for release next year.
Devine managing director David Keir said the company was keen to tap into the area's growth potential which would be boosted by such government infrastructure projects as the Northern Expressway and the Adelaide-Gawler rail upgrade.
The company says it entered into an agreement with the landholder which will enable Devine to develop the land and make staged payments to purchase the site. "From our perspective, it is about conserving our capital to enable us to continue our growth plans," Mr Keir said.
He said the development agreement equated to a land purchase price of about $20 million.
The development will include 800 homes and will include a network of walking and cycling tracks linking the estate to the Adelaide-Gawler rail line.
The area has been earmarked in the State Government's 30-Year Plan for Greater Adelaide as a residential growth area. It is expected to grow by 150 per cent in the next decade.
Retail and commercial development adjacent to the railway station and the development site also has been flagged by the Land Management Corporation.
Devine's new investment, with its $300 million Lakeside development, indicated the company's faith in the South Australian market, Mr Keir said.
"Adelaide is an attractive market for us. It is a very stable market and we have got an established brand and we can produce an affordable offering here," he said.
The development site is undergoing rezoning, which is expected by late this year.
cheers,
Rhino

Nope, they're just putting in some indented carparks :roll:

From what I can see this is closer to Smithfield that Evanston Gdns. Is the central Rd in the map Main Nth Rd.? If this is all built the gap between the northern extremity of the northern suburbs and Gawler will be much shorter. Always wondered how long it would be before greater Gawler linked to the Adelaide suburbs. Would give a better appearance than open dead flat featureless paddocks as an entry to the city. Saw all this for the first time in 1972 when I was showing the place to my girlfriend of the time. nonplussed then.

Impressed with the idea of linking up to the railway.

Adelaide's next fringe office hot spot
28/04/2010

Port Road Hindmarsh is facing a resurgence as it becomes Adelaide's next city fringe office hot spot, thanks to one of the largest office developments this year according to Nicholas Shinnick, Director of Office Leasing at Colliers International.

"Located on the northern side of Port Road, within three kilometres of the CBD will be Adelaide's first metropolitan 5 star green office facility. Developed over three stages, the $30 million project is an amalgamation of several land parcels that have a total site area of approximately 11,880sq m.

"Incorporating the former Brompton Methodist Church, a fine bluestone building and well known landmark, the project will include two new office buildings on either side of the Church. Comprising approximately 6,800sq m [of net lettable area], the development will be complimented by a multi-deck car park at the rear, with space for 320 cars.

Mr Shinnick said the project, which is being developed by owner Mossop Group, will accommodate their new headquarters when they take up occupancy of the refurbished Church building later this year.

"In addition, Hills Industries has secured a leasing pre-commitment for 3,000sq m in the 159 Port Road building, which located on the western side of the Church.

"Now that this three storey building has significant pre-commitment, almost 80%, construction can get underway. It is expected that this building will be completed by mid 2011 allowing Hills to relocate from their existing premises at Edwardstown.

"The second building, 153 Port Road, which comprises approximately 1,584sq m, is located on the eastern side of the Church and will be speculatively developed. It will be available for occupation in July 2010.

"The fact that this development has continued to move forward while the market is in recovery clearly demonstrates that confident levels are improving and while conditions may still seem challenging, the quality of this development along with the tenancies already secured are helping to create new benchmarks in the Fringe office market.

Mr Shinnick said there is real demand for quality "A Grade" office accommodation and the precinct has been lacking this for some time and the second building, whilst being developed without pre-commitment will appeal to a number of tenants already in the market.

"Assisted by the recent addition of the new Channel 7 headquarters on the corner of Port Road and Adam Street, the strip has already experienced a significant lift in profile."

"Align this with the State Governments recent tramline extension, park n' ride facilities and the Bowden village development which is right next door and we have even more reason the dynamics are about to change along the top end of Port Road."

There wasn't much available on likely tenants, as Hills were intending to relocate to KWS when this one was starting.

Here's the site render from a year ago

so the resurgence of the inner west continues!

IMO within 10 years all the buildings along Port road up to the entertainment centre will be either commerical or residential. Massive developement will take off with the tram line, entertainment & bowden developements. West End might actually be worth something!

Belair Rd is an extension of Unley Rd.

The AUDI car yard (google map location) near the Cross Rd intersection was demolished this week - presuming to rise again shortly.

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

Nice work...i was wondering what was happening to this site.

I remember acouple of years back that Hills were going to develop a site on King William Road in the city, just next to the Optus building...does anyone know if this fell through, or was I just dreaming it?!?
