NEW Planning Guidelines for ADELAIDE - Must Read!

If you haven't seen the thread over in the Skyscrapers section, the much anticipated overhaul of the city development plan has finally been released and it has not been a disappointment.

It's estimated that over $500 million worth of investment will now pour into the city now these changes have taken place, ofcourse that figure is debatable but at least this now gives the developers the flexibly to build in our city. There will also be the encouragement of mixed use developments, better use of heritage buildings, better design, overhaul on carpark requirements, limiting multi-storey carparking stations and a huge removal of red tape.

Before this overhaul, most of the restrictions were around the 50-80 metre mark with the highest being 103 metres in centre core. Now there is unlimited/CASA height limits for most of the entire CBD core, which will definitely mean that our tallest building Westpac House (132 metres) days are finally numbered.

If you go back a decade ago, the failed Capital City Tower was approved by CASA at 200 metres. So this gives an idea of what heights will be allowed by CASA.

Here are some diagrams and information that have been released by the South Australian Government and posted by Howie / Ben over at Adelaide's main development forum - Sensational-Adelaide
