Hehe . I hope I haven't forgotten any projects or made any errors, though I know theres currently a mid-rise apartment block going up in the northern suburb of Nightcliff however I can't find any details of it. Thinking of creating a "Adelaide & SA Guide" soon which will be larger than this one, watch this space.

Btw added Alice Springs projects.

Yup, 2 of them are now complete while the other one is still under construction with a crane on site (not a tower crane or hammerhead though). Added to list, thanks.

From the weekly Business Territory newsletter

Quote:
Territory population rises

FIGURES released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics show the Northern Territoryís population grew by 5040 people in the year to December 2007, reaching a record population of 217 559 people.
That is a growth rate of 2.4% compared to the national average of 1.6%.
At the heart of that growth is the Palmerston region, which recorded a 5% increase in population from 25 889 to 27185 people.
It was reported in the Australian that most of the growth was in the Greater Darwin area which means it's population is close to 120,000.

FYI to update CRAWF regarding:

The Target store in Alice Springs is currently under construction within the Alice Plaza Shopping Centre, it is not an extension rather it is an addition or fitout what ever you like to call it, I am unsure all I know it is definately going to open in October 2008.

BILO closed shop sometime early last year, I can't remember when. I only know it became another Coles Supermarket but because there is already a major Coles Supermarket in town just 600m or so away I think there were some issues with having 2 Coles Supermarkets in town.

Coles Myer apparently announced the Bilo (Coles on the Mall) would be replaced by a Target Discount Department Store. The Target sign is apparently up already and has been for a few months.

There are other major stores now within the Alice Plaza including a full size Priceline Pharmacy and shop and multiple fashion stores.

Just made the list more user friendly, I've organised CBD projects into groups - over 25 levels, 20-25 levels, 10-19 levels and under 10 levels. Plus all projects are now in order from the highest to the lowest

Also added wilkiebarkid's skyline photo thread, Darwin Airport expansion etc...

That Alice Springs Target Discount Dept store has been open since 18 September now..... It was the old Bilo Supermarket... the whole centre has been refurbished with new stores since late last year/early this year, but their website hadn't been updated...

I say also Section SIX all the buildings in there should be part of Section 5 as they are all completed and or due for completion very soon now except for the China Town Ones which as far as i am aware are still under excavation....

Alice Plaza
http://www.aliceplaza.com.au/

Yeperenye Should have also been completed a while back too... A floor plan and shop directory etc can be found here:
