I often say that our marketing is successful because we’ve made every mistake in the book. The key is we’ve learned from those mistakes and it’s rare — if ever — that we make the same one twice.

I recently read somewhere the Darwin City Council’s future plan has been produced with the assistance of the Northern Territory and federal governments, and with input from the private sector.
Apparently It’s a 20-year vision, consisting of 72 different proposals to bring new life to the Territory capital. The Ideas range from alternative road corridors into the city, to boardwalks, boulevards and a new swimming lagoon.
I couldn’t believe the amount of attention a recent post on Facebook got about Johnston as one of the ugliest suburbs in Darwin, “No one looks at the an example of “chaotic ugliness”. and feels deeply moved by the grace and sweetness of the scene,” it just shows the power of the news to instil a narrative which then becomes lodged in people’s minds.”
Growing up in Darwin and putting my own opinions up on a public forum can reflect badly on others I have grown up with however anyone that knows me, knows Im not about that! That’s why after all that attention I thought it would be best to remove the Facebook post.
The real problem is that people have accepted that everyone will have different views of what is beautiful or ugly, or even affordable.
“We have talked ourselves into the belief that taste is always relative,”
“So even though almost everyone on the planet thinks that either Dubai or Paris is delightful people in Darwin I talk to everyday think that Darwin is a bit of a mess, but we don’t dare to speak.”
“Sorry to disappoint people, but I have no clue who is behind any of the “ugly developments” and absolutely do not care, however the planning authority must be either blind or money really does control everything even common sense!
Is Darwin now becoming one of Australia’s ugly cities? An example of “chaotic ugliness”.
Instead, it comes back to the builder or developer’s preference. “One would hope that people don’t build ugly buildings, but a lot of buildings considered ugly are just cost effective,” Mr Killian said.
“Certain parts of Darwin has been taken over by property developers who have been allowed to run riot for the sake of money,”
Is the Casuarina university accommodation complex the ugliest building in Darwin?
When China International Marine Containers, or CIMC, saw that the mining investment boom had peaked and was settling into the steady extraction phase, it looked around for how it could use its skills at supplying mining accommodation to something a bit longer lasting.It didn’t take long to alight on multi-storey prefabricatated housing. In particular, but not always, hotels. Today the company has about 12 projects on the go.
NT Property Council executive director Mark Johnson thought the Kurringal Flats in Fannie Bay were rather untasteful. “They’re derelict and the poor buggers have to live in it. It’s a disgrace,” Mr Johnson said.
The Australian Institute of Architecture’s NT Chapter president Simon Scally has nominated the Woolworths building on Smith St and Whitfield St because of it’s disrespect to the street.
“It just presents a blank facade along Smith St Mall. And along Whitfield St it is just loading bays. It’s probably the most horrible industrial facade in Darwin,” Mr Scally said.
Do we have the vision to build a better Palmerston? I guess time will tell but I have put some stuff together for you to make your own mind up…
The city’s population of more than 30,000* makes Palmerston the Northern Territory’s second largest population, predominantly young working families and Defence personnel attached to Top End military facilities.
The city of Palmerston, 20 minutes by road from the Darwin central business district, is the Northern Territory’s fastest growing city – and it’s still expanding. At one time, it was the fastest growing metropolis in Australia, with landscaped suburbs, good sporting facilities such as a swimming pool, local soccer, Australian Football and general sports grounds, pubs, clubs, restaurants, a major shopping centre and a cinema complex. The newest of the Palmerston suburbs including Bellamack where I live and play & Zucolli are adjacent to the tranquil bushland and feature modern, breezy tropical houses and townhouses, interspersed with attractive bushland.
A $50 million hotel in Palmerston’s CBD has been given development approval, as Stage One of the Maluka Views development project.
The 161 room hotel, including 32 suites and 41 short stay apartments, will be behind The Hub on Roystonea Avenue, and is being created by local investors John ‘Foxy’ Robinson and Mick Burns.
This site has sat vacant for many years and finally the government has released it for development through its urban infill strategy which has apparently identified 70 parcels of Crown land across the Territory.
Hotel accommodation is under immense pressure, especially in the Dry, this development will bring online much needed rooms for the developing City of Palmerston.
Stage Two of Maluka Views will be residentially-focused, with a mix of commercial, retail and alfresco dining to be offered.
THE first sods for the Territory’s newest shopping centre were turned yesterday.

The Gateway Shopping Centre in Yarrawonga will be about 30,000sqm of retail and leisure space and more than 60 stores and kiosks.
The development will be undertaken by Coombes Property Group.
“This will be a landmark development not only for Palmerston, but for Darwin in general,” he said.
The development will assist with the creation of 3000-plus jobs over the three stages, and increase the retail retention of spending in the Territory rather than whats escaping interstate.

We have all seen the roads closed around Palmerston’s CBD. This is the first stage of the new main street which will run from Chung Wah Terrace to Roystonea Ave between the library and the recreation centre. This stage is due to be completed before the end of this year with the second stage commencing in the next dry season. We will give regular progress updates and some computer images of what it will look like soon.
design concept for Goyder Square to develop the city centre into a green tropical space featuring the large outdoor TV screen, a shady venue for the Friday night markets, a performance area and a safe, green and shady environment.
