DARWIN - #Completed: H105 Mitchell (105 Mitchell Street) - 18st / 56m / hotel

This will be another great addition to the skyline if it goes ahead. Its a development by Halikos Group, who built the 15 level apartments next to the Atrium Hotel.

It also backs on to the 130 Esplanade buildings creating more density at this end of the city.

What's that on top of the building? A spire or a lightning rod?

This will be a nice cluster... The 130 group, the Hilton (Double Tree expansion) and now this....

First look at city's new tower

THIS is the first artist's impression of the newest high-rise complex set to hit the Darwin skyline next year.
As revealed in the NT News yesterday, Halikos Hospitality's 18-storey luxury apartments will be built on Mitchell St - on the site of the old Top End Hotel.
With work starting in two weeks, "D105" will be a 4.5-star property with a mix of one and two-bedroom serviced apartments to accommodate resource project staff and corporate clients.
Halikos Hospitality general manager Geoff Weeks said the hotel would put an extra 180 rooms on to the market, alleviating the pressure on existing CBD hotels and increase their ability to service the tourism and business events market.
He said the complex would only be available to Ichthys sub-contractors and other major projects contractors in Darwin.
"D105 not only serves to meet the accommodation needs of major projects, but will also create further opportunity for local suppliers as well as training, development and employment of local staff, and increase Darwin's overall capacity to provide diverse accommodation solutions," he said.
Inpex NT general manager Sean Kildare welcomed the project.
"INPEX welcomes developments such as this that increase Darwin's available capacity and provide quality accommodation for the corporate and business travelling market," he said.
Mr Weeks said D105 would incorporate the iconic Lizard's Bar and Grill.


Great news. Work commences in a couple of weeks.

Good news, another one starting construction, the design looks pretty ordinary though. Gives a perspective of how huge the Ichthys LNG project is for Darwin. Nevermind indirect boosts to highrise development. Here we have a developer building a highrise building as a direct result, and specifically to serve, the people working on the project.

That's really heading skywards at the rate of knots. Thankyou dry season.

DARWIN - #PROPOSED: 105 Mitchell Street - 20st / 66.4m / resi

The proposal is to construct a new building in the location of the former beer garden, bar, and bottle shop on Lot 7619. The building will contain 20 levels, comprising ground and mezzanine levels, 3 parking levels, and 15 residential levels. The topmost levels of the building will contain 3 penthouses, each containing two levels.




This is a HALIKOS development on the same site as one still under construction. Pretty good chance of this getting approved.

I thought Darwin had a bit of an over crowding problem, which was pushing prices up? Or is that a thing of the past now. Darwin is growing fairly fast as well though, the amount of development doesn't seem excessive really.

It's an interesting point, as we are so used to hearing about housing undersupply in Australia. The market is always going to be one or the other - very rarely is there a perfect balance and when it does occur it doesn't last long.

Undersupply = housing prices become unaffordable for many.

Oversupply = housing prices become affordable for many.

From a social benefit perspective it's better to have a bit of an oversupply every now and then to give more people a chance to enter the market.

The inpex workforce peaks this yr is 8000. Obviously many of them will be at the village at howard springs. But there are still a lot of connected staff out in the wild.

Off this peak, what then, esp when it finished prices are likely to dive.

Not that im complaing, the market here is even more ridiculously overpriced than sydney or melbourne anc could do with a massive correction.

another question is how many apartments are being constructed each year and when will development slow right down... it seems never ending up there.
