Old BBC in Braddon

b2 1 August 2007 24

Does anyone know or wish to guess what will be in the building where the old BBC/Bunnings was on Mort Street?

It had sat empty for so long, but now something is definitely happening. Maybe another car yard (unlikely) …


What’s Your opinion?

Well I was just saying what the tradie told me – I am by no means an oracle (see corkage thread)

Its 1st Choice not choice liquor i assume, Dan Murphys was looking at this location years ago. But I guess coles decided to go through with it after woolies decided against it (parking issues), They are also opening a 1st Choice at the Beclonnen Markets, this should help you find a parking space there on the weekends.

Thumper – I agree.

Walk down road – cross road – walk a little further cross road again – walk a little further cross road again – proceed to place of employment.

I’ll be glad when I don’t have to dodge forklifts and trucks and workmen with assorted power tools etc etc every day when I walk past 🙂

I’d expect the Choice Liquor to do quite well Danman 🙂

I took it upon myself to talk to a tradie on this site on the way home yesterday and it turns out the place is going to be a “Choice Liquor” outlet.

Seems it will come in very handy considering a gubment dept is setting up shop next door.

ASP – not saying that they 100% should use these methods to minimise the loss of fibers to teh atmosphere – but one would assume they would have some safety measures in place

Maybe they sealed in sections and made them negativepressure – because if its a building they are not going to cover the whole thing in a tent 🙂

Slightly off topic – there was a guy in the 60’s who mined asbestos for a living – and when he came home every day he gave his kid a hug.

The man grew old and died of natural causes – but his child grew up got asbestosis and died.

Pod units?

New residential units would surely sell at a higher price than office space? They could build Pod Units for Trendy Singles or something.

Gregorys are moving to Mitchell soon.

No they aren’t. Gregorys are building a new Parts Warehouse and new car storage in Mitchell.

Pit the fibre scratches a bit. Makes you cough. Cough a lot.

Ummm, negative preasure tent. Personal De-con unit. Are they meant to use these? Because I’ve seen three places in Narrabundah where they removed asbestos and they never used these. Hmm?

Mr Evil 2:07 pm 01 Aug 07

I’d heard that asbestos is actually good for you: it’s high in fibre and is trans-fat free.

Yeah I don’t mind Debacle but it can be a little sport heavy at times.

caf 11:59 am 01 Aug 07

Not to mention Zierholz on tap!

Danman 11:35 am 01 Aug 07

Go over one street to Debarcle.

Its pretty good and has outdoor seating – good food and bulmers on tap.

pierce 10:53 am 01 Aug 07

Well I guess that stuffs my dreams of an actual cool pub + beer garden then. Stoopid offices.

Danman 10:16 am 01 Aug 07

One word, asbestos. That puppy wont be touched for a while

They have been working on it for about 4 months now…..And there was no asbestos removal – as the site never had any negative pressure tent or personel decontamination units installed.

Other Asbestos removal sites in canberra have had these facilities – including the old AIATSIS buildings across from bobby mcgees.

Gregorys are moving to Mitchell soon.

Thumper 9:01 am 01 Aug 07

Asbestos, the breakfast of champions…

One word, asbestos. That puppy wont be touched for a while

Growling Ferret 8:43 am 01 Aug 07

It looks a suitable site for Sky Plaza Mk 2
