Belco Mall starts to look good?

bobbatty 2 August 2010 30

You have to give it to whoever is doing the Belco Mall upgrade, it’s starting to look like a winner. I’m impressed by Magnet Mart leaving and the Goodies taking over the building and can see how all this could flow into the main centre.

I must say that the developers are doing a better job in Belco over recent years with the exception of the Art whatever on the lake. Even some of the restaurants are lifting their food service and quality.

Man, it’s a good time to be alive in Belco with all the changes!!

Don’t knock the renos in Belconnen – it gives us public servants something to watch when we look out the window LOL

There’s no doubt that zombies have already taken over the Hyperdome.

Look you people….

1. To those that disparage me and my optimism for a better Belco; you need to consider Gungahlin it’s a better place for people like you.
2. To the rest who believe in a better Belco; thanks for the support. I believe that in the end Belco can be better than the city with modern permanent accommodation and a vibrant shopping centre that people love.

And now, you have been told.

Can I just say that ‘To those that disparage me and my optimism for a better Belco’ is the funniest line I have read for a long time. Surely this could go on the random quotes that appear at the top of the page.

maybe so, but i’ll be heading for bunnings…

Nah, Jim has got it right. Ever since watching Dawn of the Dead in the 80s my mates and I still assess every mall we go to for Zombie defence. We would have a field day running around the upper level car parks picking off the undead as they shambled across Benjamin way.

Zombies don’t need to breath – they’ll travel through water to get to fresh meat.

Apart from the fact that Bunnings is a particularly bad layout from a zombie survival perspective (one big hall with lots of hiding places; no way to section off infected areas), there’s nothing to eat at Bunnings.

Lots of hardware and cool shit to build weapons of all types. As well the ability to fortify your position, plus turn your car into a tank.

Not to mention the whipper snippers and chainsaws.

Where did the Cameron offices go?

Someone decided that a series of concrete and glass cubes built in the seventies should be replaced by a series of concrete and glass cubes built in the noughties.

At least the Cameron/Benjamin Offices had some architectural value.

Ah Belconnen! Half of the Belconnen town centre has been razed and rebuilt and it’s barely 35 years old. Where did the Cameron offices go? It’s like a built up Glenloch with traffic lights. And it’s about to get a whole lot worse (and that’s before you even step in the door).

Enough of the crazy talk.

…and yes, I know un-inhindered is an awesome use of language.

I am still amazed that belco mall and belco bus interchange could not be replaced / revamped / whatever without the introduction of numerous sets of traffic lights and the removal of what was a almost un-inhindered bus lane from one side of the town centre to the other.
