CBD SOUTH > U/C: Vue on King William - 89M / 28L / RES

A 13 level glass office tower is proposed at 413-427 King William Street. It is to be partly tenanted by Hills Industries as their National Headquaters. Thanks to Ben from Sensational-Adelaide for a lot of the info and render for this one:

It is a welcome addition to the city skyline, and helps contriubute to moving away from the pyramidical formation we have now, to a more linear stretch. The design holds promise to be architecturally confrontational (much alike the Commonwealth Law Courts) and I'm eagerly awaiting this one.

I'd be hoping it wasn't squeezed up directly next to Optus, especially if they're around the same height.

Thanks to Ben on the S-A website for the heads-up that this one is now on public notification on the ACC website. Here are some renders which show the proposal amongst the other approved, proposed and under construction buildings in the southern CBD. This area will be totally transformed in a couple of years.

Has there actually been a proposal for a tower on the Brecknock? Or is this just speculative?

It would be a shame to lose the Brecknock.

No official proposal, but they refer to it as a future proposal often throughout the report. The Brecknock won't be going anywhere, it is a local heritage item. The Brecknock forms an 'L' shape and the future proposed building is setback in a square area behind this 'L' shaped building.

It could be a really nice development - old vs new.

Though it would be good if Hills was built further up King William Street so the skyline is more spread out and doesn't look like one giant wall. Plus I like Optus , it will be weird not seeing it from Victoria Square.

Well that's a relief...

If memory serves me correctly, I think Ben stated that this was going to be 15 levels and 60 m. Nice size building for that area.

I finally understand where Wave and Edge are in relation to KWS. Any news on these?

Cheers for these updates Urban

Thanks for posting those Urban. I've added the Brecknock Tower to the building list.

Good news!, from the ACC

New Hills Industries City headquarters approved

Released: 07 Apr 2008 [12.00am]

Adelaide’s skyline is set to grow further, with the Adelaide City Council’s Development Assessment Panel tonight giving the go-ahead to two new 15-level commercial buildings in the City, including the new $90 million home for iconic Australian company Hills Industries.

The proposed Hills development features ground-level retail tenancies, office accommodation covering levels 1 to 14, four basement car parking levels with spaces for more than 180 cars, and a landscaped open deck common area on the top level.

The building will also incorporate a number of environmentally sustainable features including low energy use, minimised stormwater discharge, a waste management plan, the provision of motorcycle and bicycle parking spaces for staff, and sun-shading devices on the building’s external façade.

Lord Mayor Michael Harbison says Hills’ decision to relocate its headquarters from Edwardstown to King William Street is a significant vote of confidence in the City.

“Hills is such a well known Australian company, being the maker of the famous Hills Hoist, so its decision to establish a new commercial base in the City is very welcome,” he says.

“It will bring hundreds of new workers into the City generally and the southern precinct in particular, and is another sign that the development and construction boom in Adelaide remains strong.”

“The southern precinct along King William Street is becoming a particular focus for commercial development, with the State Government’s tram extension delivering increased transport options for companies and developers looking to build new premises.”

“Along with the new Hills building, two other substantial buildings are due to commence construction soon, including an office tower at 416 King William Street, and an office and residential building in Gilles Street.”

The Development Assessment Panel has tonight also given development consent for a fresh application for an 11-level office building at 374-400 King William Street.

The original development application was approved in September 2006, however the developers lodged a new application increasing the height of the building and incorporating other changes including extra lifts and a remodelled entrance to King William Street.

The other new proposal approved by the Panel tonight is for a 15-level mixed-use building at 57-59 Wyatt Street, comprising ground floor retail, two levels of car parking providing 34 spaces, four levels of offices, and residential apartments on the 8th to 15th levels.

Existing buildings on the site would be demolished, while a gymnasium is proposed to be established on the building’s 7th floor.

Will be a much needed addition next to the lonely Optus building. From the airport looking at the Optus building to the extreme of the skyline, it shows and incredible potential for the skyline to eventually span right out

well theyve already started the foundations so its under construction.... i think hills are jsut shopping around for another 50% partner in the development...which may prove tricky in the current credit climate.... however cbd vacancy has dropped in adelaide by 1% and nearly 3% for prime stock so who knows..

think goodman should stick to sheds and let the office constructions to other firms
