This is exactly what Adelaide needs and deserves. That building will make a huge impact on that part of town. I can't wait for this to go up ( and hopefully many more like it). Anyone have any renders of the Mayfair Apartments that were approved at the same time?

Drove past the site on tuesday I believe and saw a few trucks/excavators driving around the site, but didnt get a very good look at what they were doing. So the possibility that something is happening, but doubt it...

CITY CENTRE Risky office tower move to ease crisis High-rise child care
MICHAEL OWEN, POLITICAL REPORTER

A CHILDCARE centre for the first time is to be developed in a major city centre high-rise office tower.

Developers of the $100 million building at 400 King William St say the risky commercial move is aimed at tackling the childcare crisis and designed to tap into growing concerns among workers about improving work-life balance.

The concept has support from Education and City of Adelaide Minister Jane Lomax-Smith. The Government has included work-life balance targets in the state's strategic plan and also established the Work-Life Balance select committee, chaired by parliamentary secretary Grace Portolesi, to examine the issue.

Yet, despite plans by building owners and major companies over the past decade to include childcare centres in city office buildings, none has been completed because of the lack of financial returns.

Government licensing issues and council red tape also have been obstacles.

In October, 2006, a $1 million childcare centre for the Santos complex in the city was flagged by building manager Knight Frank, but was abandoned.

Advertiser Newspapers Limited has called for registrations of interest in creating a childcare centre.

The company behind the latest bid to incorporate a childcare centre into a city office building says its development is going ahead.

Kyren Group managing director Theo Samaras said the new 11-storey office tower is to be built at the corner of King William and Gilles streets, and is due to open late next year.

Mr Samaras has teamed up with Stepping Stone (SA) Childcare and Early Development Centres, which will offer 150 places in the new centre.

Stepping Stone director George Skrembos said the project was ``very exciting''.

Mr Skrembos said the childcare centre was leasing about 2000sq m of office space, half of which will be ``secure, outdoor, open space'' made possible by a special design on level four of the building. He said ``in-principle'' agreement had been given by the Government, although a licence was yet to be granted.

The centre will have about 30 staff, with places available to the general public, 6.30am-6.30pm. Fees are yet to be set.

The centre needs Adelaide City Council approval.

Central childcare options for city workers would give parents more flexibility and allow breastfeeding mothers to visit during the day, Nat Tozer, 31, from St Marys, said.

The Telstra worker said she thought it was a ``brilliant'' idea to include a childcare centre in the new high-rise office tower on King William St.

Her son Josh, 3, goes to childcare close to home in Clovelly Park four days a week.

This site really is huge, I can't get over its size. Can't wait for this one to go up, it should really help this side of the CBD look more like a CBD area. I wonder if it will be steel frame construction like Kyren Pty Ltd's other project at Coglin Street. Hopefully it is so we can see it go up fairly quickly. Here are a couple of pics taken from the southeast corner of the site over the fence today. Excavation and piling work is well underway.

Heaps of action on this site today with a piling machine, concrete trucks, small crane and lots of workers behind the fencing. Quick pic from today (this perspective will look great soon after looking terrible for so many years):

An amended application is on public consultation at the moment. The building has been increased to 11 levels and a basement level. The height to top of parapet will be increased to 44.5 metres and a total height of 47 metres. The renders have stayed the same despite the changes but here is a new elevation:



Plus this foyer entry area render:



These are the current renders which haven't been updated to reflect the extra podium floor shown in the elevation above:

Thanks Urban, this is going to need two tower cranes?

Geez this development is so sleek, its really going to make a nice impact on the growing southern skyline and the street scape (especially with those ground floor shops and cafes). Now its time for the State Government to revamp the three tram stops on the southern part of KWS.

Hammerheads can cover a greater area.

One crane alone will not build this baby it is far too long. Not sure if it will be hammerhead or tower cranes though.

The boundary piling foundations have been concreted towards the southern end and excavations continue. With the application now consisting of a basement level they should be digging for a while as the site is huge. Also some works occuring on the northern boundary, looks like stabalising works for the adjacent buildings (coverings over King William Street as well). Pics from late this arvo:

Cheers Urban. Just to clarify, from my understanding there was originally no basement, but the DA is before council to be amended to include one. I don't think it's been approved yet.

No worries. You are correct AtD not approved yet. Kyren Pty Ltd who are behind this one and the Coglin development did a very similar thing with Coglin Street project eg extra height and a basement which had to be approved whilst construction was occurring.
