Are they talking about the site where that REALLY crap old car park is which is right next door to the lodge or are they talking about behind the building. If they are talking about behind the building, that is synagogue place and a very similar location to where that proposed Globe Apartments was going to go. I'll be able to watch this one from my balcony if it goes ahead
So can someone tell me how to post pictures?

Copy/paste from Sen-Adel:

For those playing at home:

The construction in this photo is the North Tce streetscape upgrade














I would assume that this proposal is to demolish the back part of the bulding (box B in the Google Maps image) and retain the front part (box A). I know the front part was built in 1925, but haven't been able to find any refrence to the back part. To me it looks like it was built as an extension to the centre. A date would be interesting.

A bit of info on the Masonic Centre:

I guess we'll have to wait for it to be submitted to council.

Don't worry about the streetscape being affected... as the developer told me.. it's important that when you build something in Adelaide that it can't be seen. As shown in this diagram here :



I think he meant that sarcastically.

I'm with StopTheWar. If THAT street scape will be going then I'd rather it not be built. I LOVE that little side alley off of Rundle St.

The back of the Masonic centre will be demolished, so yes, the streetscape will be dramatically changed. The lane way could do with a clean up anyway.

$4.5m to buy penthouse luxury



RENATO CASTELLO

April 20, 2008 12:30am

OWNERS of the two penthouses in a planned $120 million Adelaide apartment tower will have their own swimming pools – and developers expect the luxury pads to fetch a record $4.5 million each.
This would eclipse the current South Australian record for an apartment sale, held by a penthouse at The Place on Brougham, North Adelaide at $4.14m.

The median house price in SA is $362,500.

The 500 sq m penthouses, which feature sweeping 270-degree views across the city, are the centrepiece of a 17-storey tower to be built behind the state heritage-listed Masonic Centre on North Tce.

Developers Advantis (QLD) Pty Ltd lodged plans with the Adelaide City Council last week for the 60m building that will feature:

134 one and two-bedroom apartments.

GYM, sauna and separate pool for residents.

BASEMENT parking for 136 cars and ground floor retail.

STORMWATER capture and re-use, and solar hot water systems.

A spokesman for the developer described the four-bedroom, two-storey penthouses as "a big house on top of a building".

"These are for the discerning purchaser . . . someone who wants a city lifestyle but doesn't want to give up the North Adelaide or Burnside palatial living," he said. "You won't get any opportunity for anything like this in the distant future."

The penthouses will feature north-facing outdoor terraces, a master bedroom suite on the top floor and high-end appliances.

But internal finishes to kitchens and bathrooms are still to be determined.

The building will be constructed using cor-ten steel, which naturally rusts – but the structure doesn't corrode – as it is exposed to the elements.

The steel is predominantly used in outdoor sculptures, bridges and in the transportation industry.

"We don't want to clash with the Masonic Lodge, it is a timeless piece and we want it to blend in," the spokesman said.

The grand hall at the rear of the Masonic Centre would be demolished as part of the project, which has been designed by Adelaide architectural firm Tridente Architects.

But under a deal with the Freemasons, who sold the site in 2004, the developers will spend $1.5m on restoring the 80-year-old building.

The Freemasons will remain on site under a 99-year lease agreement with the developers.

A buy-back clause allows the Freemasons to repurchase the lodge should it be viable.

A new pedestrian plaza linking North Tce with Rundle St via Synagogue Place will be created.

The plans are expected to go out for public consultation later this year.

as long as the gerard and goodman building, etc, isnt touched, i'm relatively happy. an apartment towner of this scale could be the first step in revitalising this laneway (synagogue place) and creating more of a thoroughfare to North Terrace.

I was more worried about synagogue place apartment's than this development on the street. At least there will new throughfare with the masonic development giving people direct access to synagogue place from north terrace.. something we haven't seen for decades. If measuring the success of this development means improving the streetscape of synagogue place i'd say it's done it a tremendous favour by turning it from a once dead end street to a proper throughfare.

I'm all for good development in Adelaide and like the other North Tce apartment proposals so far, but I don't like this tower. It looks too overbearing from side angles.
