Which buildings do you suggest we keep and which ones should be demolished?
Especially demolish the ugly ones on Commercial Road between St Vincent Street and the Port Adelaide Station. And the ugly ones on St Vincent Street between the Police Station and Jervois Bridge. Also a free shuttle bus running from Port Adelaide Station via Commercial Road, Lighthouse, Maratime Museum, Aviation Museum and National Railway Museum.

Eurostar, "Demolish the ugly ones" is pretty much open slather, as ugly is in the eye of the beholder - what you consider to be ugly, someone else might see as worth keeping.
cheers,

For me the abundance of heritage buildings is pretty much the main drawcard for visiting Port Adelaide. Keeping a 'handful' and replacing the rest with modern buildings would destroy the significance and uniqueness of the area and, probably, its rejuvenation.

there's plenty of room in Port Adelaide for new buildings without bulldozing any. IMO the only real demolition they should do is split the woolsheds into smaller buildings, which would probably be the last thing they'd be able to do.

This or at least retain the facades and setback any towers so they don't affect the sightline from the street.

I'm sorry but there are a lot of old buildings (circa 60's onward) that can be demolished. The heritage buildings need to stay.

Not to sound like a NIMBY but heritage is the foundation of Port Adelaide. Take away the heritage, you take away the Port.

Buildings like this could go, they are falling apart and look ewww. Something needs to replace that hole in the ground. I remember talking to the owner of a takeaway shop in September 2016, he was forced to move out because there was little foot traffic coming into the shop, the owner talked about opening a coffee shop in Port Adelaide, I am not sure if he went ahead with it and can't say I blame him if he didn't. By all means keep the customs house, police station, hotels, town hall, Lighthouse, museum etc. But redevelop the rest with modern mixed development. Also how good would it be to have Foodland front onto Commercial Road, Coles/Kmart front onto Dale Street/Church Street.

Can a mod close this thread and start a new one?
I am not sure what is wrong with the thread but on Tapatalk it is broken. The page count is random, the current page is all over the shop, you get duplicate posts and the thread never reaches an end. Only last month for about 6 months the thread was impossible to view and would just be blank.

The new version of the forum software we use sometimes has a fit when spam posts are removed. It usually settles down after a while when the thread counters reset themselves. Howie is aware of the problem, but there's no fix available as yet.

Renew Adelaide has withdrawn funding from Port Adelaide.
From In Daily
State Government axes Renew Adelaide from the Port

The State Government has axed all funding from Renew Adelaide's Port Adelaide program, which has helped bring 28 new businesses to life in the area since it started five years ago.

Renew Adelaide is a not-for-profit which connects start-up businesses with short-term, rent-free leases in vacant properties and helps property owners improve their buildings to attract tenants.

State Government authority Renewal SA’s funding for Renew Adelaide’s operations in the Port ended today – a few weeks after Renew Adelaide was informed of the decision.

Since Renew Adelaide launched its Port Adelaide program with $15,000 in pilot funding from the Government in mid-2012, 28 businesses have tested their ideas in the market using rent-free lease arrangements negotiated through the organisation.

Eight businesses, staffed by 20 people, currently operate under the Renew Adelaide program in Port Adelaide.

Seven of these will either have to vacate premises shortly or negotiate new leases with landlords, while one, food-truck-turned-restaurant Low and Slow, has secured a longer-term lease with its landlord.

Proprietor of Low and Slow Angus Kiley said his business was “a great example of the great outcomes Renew Adelaide’s work can achieve in Port Adelaide”.

“We are really thankful for Renewal SA’s support through Renew Adelaide and we personally couldn’t have launched without this type of support,” he said.

“It’s a shame for the other businesses here who are new and small that are showing really strong potential from the outset.”

Article from In Daily explaining why the South Australian government withdrew Renewal Adelaide funding from the Port.
Port Adelaide growing so fast it doesn't need Renew Adelaide: Govt

The State Government’s urban renewal authority says it axed funding for Renew Adelaide’s operations in Port Adelaide because the area is growing so fast that it no longer needs the not-for-profit’s help.

Renew Adelaide connects start-up businesses with short-term, rent-free leases in vacant properties and helps property owners improve their buildings to attract tenants.

Renewal SA, the State Government’s land management and urban development body, ended funding for Renew Adelaide’s operations in the Port last week.

Since Renew Adelaide launched its Port Adelaide program five years ago – with Government pilot funding of $15,000 – 28 businesses have tested their ideas using rent-free lease arrangements. By the end of the arrangement, eight businesses, staffed by 20 people, were operating under the program in Port Adelaide. One had transitioned into a full rent-paying business.

And also from In Daily, the Port Admiral Hotel is about to re-open.
Port Admiral Hotel opens Wednesday

After being closed for a decade, the landmark pub in Port Adelaide opens this week amid much anticipation.
It’s 4pm on Friday afternoon, a few days out from the official opening of the Port Admiral Hotel on Wednesday, 8 November, and the pub’s first staff training day has just ended.

It’s been a long day – and a long 12-months – and Crispian admits he’s exhausted.

“I’m feeling pretty emotional, actually,” he says.

“Today was the end of the build and the start of the pub. Whilst there’s still building going on around us, it’s clear that we need to get busy, get training, our products are coming, get tasting.”

Earlier that day, with their entire staff crowded around the freshly minted bar, another co-owner – chef Stewart Wesson – introduced the crew to his menu’s 24 items, Angus explained the Port Admiral approach to cocktails, and schooners of the establishment’s signature, specially-brewed lager were passed around the counter top for the very first time.

Most importantly, it was the duo’s first taste of the front bar doing exactly what it was designed to do – bringing people together.

“I loved it today. That first little 15 minutes where people were walking in and sitting down and taking their spot around the bar was amazing, my face lit up,” Angus says.

“Then I walked out of the room and all of a sudden there was 20 people in there, and they were all sitting there having a chat, and they don’t really know each other, but they’re getting to know each other, because they’re not all friends yet. It was excellent.

“That bar, as soon as you walk in there, it is warm. It gives you a big old hug when you walk in, and instantly you just feel welcome. That’s the key with this place, I think, is that everyone feels welcome regardless of who you are.”
