From what I have gathered this will go ahead in February 2021.
Adelaide's Premier Development and Construction Site
The Advertiser being the usual dogshit overly negative poorly written trash that it always is. The only useful piece of information in this article is this one is set for a start date of February next year.A $110 million upgrade of Norwood Mall is expected to swallow up to 240 car parks during construction.
In a letter to a resident, Norwood, Payneham & St Peters Mayor Robert Bria said as few as 60 spaces could be left in the existing Coles car park for customers during works.
Construction is expected to begin in February next year and take 18 months to two years to complete.
The State Government’s assessment panel ticked off on Australasian Property Developments’ proposed contemporary retail and residential complex with four towers built on land bordered by Edward St, George St and The Parade in January this year.
However, Mr Bria said the completed development would offer 347 spaces for shoppers.

“In any event, as you would appreciate, the development of this property as with any development of this type, results in the temporary closure of carparks,” Mr Bria said in his letter.
“At the same time, during construction, both the supermarket and the retail facilities in Norwood Mall will not be functioning and, as a result, there will be a significant reduction in carparking demand.”
Norwood Residents Association president Chris Francis said a loss of parking spaces was a “necessary inconvenience”.
“Ultimately we will gain more provision for parking once the project is completed,” Mrs Francis said.
Kintaro Sushi ownerGavin Huang said the works would make it harder for customers to park near his business.
“It will have some impact, absolutely, but what can you do?”
The new precinct includes an expanded Coles supermarket, four retail outlets, a medical centre and an office in an eight-storey building.

The upper levels will house 24 two-storey townhouses and two levels of carparking above the ground floor.
Two five-storey towers will be home to 40 apartments and four penthouses.
In addition, nine apartments are proposed for a three-storey complex facing George St.
Australasian Property Developments has been contacted for comment.
Yes The Advertiser are useless. I knew about February before they did.
I agree too but this will extend the build time. What I hate about all this is that we can't have a supermarket until what is going above is near completion. Why couldn't they do this in stages? I will be without my favourite supermarket for possibly (up to) two years. Fark.
Como, a mixed-use development, is set to transform The Parade Norwood. An exciting once in a life time project will bring a unique and boutique retail living and shopping experience to The Parade.
Como will deliver over 80 high end apartment and town homes as well as delivering over 500 car parks to the precinct.
Coles will open a new state of the art supermarket which will be supported by 7 specialist retail tenancies with complimentary food and service offerings.
A full service Medical Centre is envisaged for the upper levels with an announcement to be made in 2021 as to the confirmed operator
