The Danish Ice cream shop is open in front of the ICC near the water playground for kids. Pancakes on the Rocks opening in Darling Sq does not seem so silly as it did when it first opened.Its only sort of hit me watching that video. I work not too far from there and would occassionlly do my lunch time walk through there and maybe after work during day light savings.
I knew the changes were coming but things were gradually disappearing from that shopping centre. YD closed, then other closing retailers. In the food court, only McDonalds, KFC and Opportos remained. I'm sure I was there not too long ago and McDonalds was the only place open there.
Sadly the Danish Ice Cream shop closed as well as the Fudge shop.
Whilst I didnt go to every bar and restuarant in there, I had so many good memories in there. A lot of birthdays, Christmas parties, work functions. Also years before when I was a kid that I remember going to TimeZone at the bottom floor.
I'm not sure Cyrens on the corner will still remain, as I believe its owned by the Nicks group. Im sure it was still open a couple weeks back.
Its unfortunate that this happened. I'm not sure what the future holds, apparently classy bars and restaurants and residential apartments on top. How original.
Cyren is still open, I guess it will remain open until it need to be demolished?
I don't think it is that unfortunate (despite my beloved Hurricanes closing) as it really is a bit of an eyesore when you compare it will all the new development. As I didn't grow up in Sydney I don't have a huge attachment to it so maybe that's why I'm fine with it being replaced.
