Sensational-Adelaide member Waewick discovered this proposal on the Hines website.
Situated in heart of the Adelaide CBD, 122 Grenfell Street Hotel will be a landmark development for Adelaide reaching 18 Levels and enjoying panoramic views to the Hills, across Hindmarsh Square and to the CBD skyline. This exciting new development will include 300 hotel rooms and suites, food and beverage outlets, conference and meeting facilities, guest lounge and business facilities, and a fitness centre.
The development will also include ground floor retail tenancies fronting Grenfell Street. This prime corner site adjoins the historical Adelaide Arcade and is within immediate walking distance to Rundle Mall and Rundle Street.

It looks like its going to have a similar design feature to 1010 La Trobe Street in Melbourne's Docklands, with the optical illusion lines. It will be a great talking point.

Hines Property gets go ahead for $65m hotel
SOUTH Australia's Development Assessment Commission has approved Hines Property's $65 million hotel development in Adelaide.
Located on the corner of Grenfell and Twin Streets, construction will start later this year ahead of projected completion in 2014.
The 17-storey hotel will comprise 300 rooms, food and beverage facilities, fitness centre, conference and business facilities.
Hines Property managing director James Hines said the project will create more than 200 jobs during construction and then 80 permanent positions once the hotel opens.
“This hotel is going to be an outstanding new addition to the CBD and will contribute to Adelaide’s growth as a city in line with other exciting major projects such as the Adelaide Oval upgrade and the Riverbank expansion,” he added.
Hines said an announcement will be made soon regarding an international operator to manage the hotel.
This is the fifth major development undertaken by Hines Property in the Hindmarsh Square precinct having recently completed the nearby $100 million Crowne Plaza Adelaide hotel and the adjoining $50 million 20 Hindmarsh Square apartments complex.

Market ripe for the picking in Adelaide
An improvement in the state's tourism sector would provide a direct benefit to Mr Hines' latest plans - a $65 million hotel on the corner of Grenfell and Twin streets. An international operator for the hotel is expected to be announced next month, with construction set to commence later this year.
The 17-storey hotel will include 300 rooms, food and beverage facilities, a fitness centre, conference and meeting spaces, a guest lounge and business facilities. It is Hines' sixth major development at Hindmarsh Square.

HINES Property is developing a $65 million Ibis hotel in Adelaide for French hotel giant Accor.
The 17-storey hotel in the central business district received planning approval in March.
It will be located on Grenfell Street, close to the Rundle Mall shopping precinct.
Construction is scheduled to start later this year on the 307-room hotel, which is due to open early in 2014.
Hines Property recently completed the $100m Crowne Plaza Adelaide hotel, and has developed a number of apartment and hotel projects in the South Australian capital.
"We expect Ibis Adelaide to set the standard for premium economy hotel accommodation in Australia," Hines Property managing director James Hines said.
The development's completion will coincide with the opening of the expanded Adelaide Convention Centre and redevelopment of Adelaide Oval.
Yesterday, Accor said the Ibis Adelaide would be the brand's largest hotel in Australia and a major boost for Adelaide's tourism sector which is dominated by four-star and five-star hotels.
The Ibis would be the first purpose-built economy hotel in the CBD for more than two decades and the first internationally branded hotel of its type to open its doors in Adelaide, Accor said.
Ibis, the biggest economy accommodation brand in the world, has more than 900 hotels in the fast-growing sector.
"This will be a key development for Adelaide," Accor Pacific chief operating officer Simon McGrath said.

Having a new hotel with no balconies seems a shame. Views would be good also.
