Sounds like fun! Fortunately Renewal SA never got around to demolishing the Harts Mill precinct in their former role as SA Land Management Corporation. They laid waste to the rest of Port Adelaide more effectively than a conquering horde of Visigoths, but now seem more interested in other areas. Luckily they are also good at using our tax dollars to put on a party :)
