Yeah i took the pictures, still a novice thou. The were both taken with canon powershot a85. Both with simply taken with auto settings. I went downtown the other day and took about 200 photos of around the CBD. Yeah thought the Townsville idea was cool, would have been all original about it but takes creativity .... something i lack.
there was a proposal to update the bell street mall recently... resurfacing and water features as i recall.... in my opinion, turning bell street into a pedestrian mall is one of the worst decisions the toowoomba city council ever made... the reasons at the time was because it had so much car and pedestrian traffic, however, this mall has really been the kiss of death to businesses that once thrived there... hopefully when they do decide to update it it will bring a bit if life back.
It would be a great area to focus the construction of multilevel buildings for local business headquarters.
Heritage being the main one that already exists there, but other businesses that could have a presence include -
- K&R darling downs
- Weis dairy products
- Dairy Farmers
ya its quite impressive... i guess the fact that centrelink has left is a blessing in disguise... even tho its left the mall quite empty for the past few years, at least it starting to stop being a haunt for the perpetually unemployed and doll blugers... a few years ago when centrelink was in still in the condamine centre, the whole mall was filled with these derro's... most have gone elsewhere now, clearing the way for a future possible use for the mall
