CBD CORE > PROPOSED: 114 Waymouth Street - 23 Levels

Adelaide CBD's second-tallest building plan for Waymouth St
Tim Williams
March 21, 2013 11:57AM

A 34-storey tower planned for Waymouth St would fall just metres short of Adelaide's tallest , featuring vertical "sky gardens" spanning half its height.

The $140 million office and residential tower is slated for the site next to the old Queen's Theatre and Uno Apartments that is now a 24-hour parking lot.

It would be up to 128m tall, just 4m short of Westpac House.

The City Council last year sold the property to developer Datong on the condition that a project start by early 2014.

Architect and JPE Design Studio director Adrian Evans said one design option was a series of four-storey tall "cutouts" on top of one another on the western side of the building.

Each would house a garden space tall enough for mature trees.

Viewed from the street or Light Square, the effect would be a vertical garden spanning 16 storeys.

"The ideas are quite exciting for Adelaide,'' Mr Evans said.

"There could be a plaza between (the) Uno (apartment building) and the new building which we hope will be a proper piazza with trees.

"The ground floor would be high end retail and cafes and possibly a restaurant.''

The tower is likely to include some two-level loft apartments, penthouses with rooftop pools and a communal rooftop garden.

It would have several carpark levels.

Mr Evans said the project would also create a new laneway between Waymouth St and Playhouse Lane, possibly with room for a bar.

"It suddenly will be another way to get through to Currie and Hindley St,'' he said.

Mr Evans said his firm was "scrambling madly'' to finish the design so it could submitted to the Development Assessment Commission next month, in the hope of gaining planning approval as a soon as possible.

"If they are going to tender and to get a builder to start early next year, they need all the time they can get.''

Town Hall's strategic property manager Mike Philippou confirmed the sale contract included a condition that building works must start "by early 2014''.

"Conditions like this are standard practice in council sale contracts,'' he said.

He would not reveal the sale price.

Thanks to Ben for finding this. It was in Chineese and when translated by Google, doesn't make a lot of sense, but it is understandable.

Waymouth St may be “born” a 34-story building (128 metres), this building than just Adelaide tallest building (Westpac House) short four metres, and nearly half the height of the entire building will be constructed perpendicular “Hanging Gardens.”

This is one and office and residential in an integrated, intends to spend $1.4 one hundred million construction, location, adjacent to the former Queen’s Theatre and Uno Apartments, is being used as a 24-hour parking.2012 year developers Datong purchased here from City Hall in the hands of real estate, on condition that in 2014 was planned before the beginning of the construction project.

According to the architects and JPE Design Studio director Adrian Evans said one of the program are: the west side of the building construction of a stack of a series of four-storey “cut-outs.”

Each “cut-outs” are left out a garden; height should be enough to see the surrounding lush greenery.

Arrogant Street or Light Square looked; the effect of rendering the entire building would be similar to a high 14 storey vertical "sky gardens."

Besides this building 34 -storey building also includes some two-storey loft apartment, house with rooftop pool, communal roof garden and some parking spaces.

Evans said: "The construction of a specific project plan also includes Waymouth St and Playhouse Lane created between a roadway, may also have a bar space."

"Our company will definitely add a little horsepower, race against time to finalize the design scheme as soon as possible, so that you can in the next month to submit it to the development of evaluation committee, the Committee may also wish to use the shortest possible time to agree to our proposal."

Plenty of pre-sales and construction has commenced according to some reports.

Really good news for the development of the CBD.

g'day adelaidians, thought you'd like to know built environs have just signed a contract to build this. they don't make a habit of dealing with tyre-kickers, especially on $100m builds, so i reckon it's a goer.
