SA | Completed | ADELAIDE | Air Apartments

Since I see this construction every day, I can see that it's construction is well on it's way. Infact today there are 2 cranes on site and a heap of workers too.

Does anyone have any renders of this???

Basically the old 13 level ETSA building in adelaide is being reconstructed into a 15 level apartment building, the most exclusive in Adelaide (each room has plasma screens and built in bose surround sound systems for starters!!)
It will be 55m tall and finished 2004, me thinks

I am looking for renders now!

Is this the old ETSA bldg on Glen Osmond Road? With 13 levels to 15, does this mean a rise of two, or are they doing it some other way?

Cheers,

Kasey

It's the building on Greenhill road, they are going to add two penthouse levels to the top. Gordon Pickard who has now bought it want's to make it the most exclusive address in adelaide, bar none!!!

Sorry Pikey, but I only have a picture of the failed Grollo proposal from a few years back.

I don't think the new developers have released a rendering, of their vision for the old ETSA building.

No progress so far. It's still a 12 level empty shell currently.

Haven't they been planning to convert the ETSA building into a residential building for 10 years now?

The site is a buzz of activity. There are trucks, cranes excavation equipment all on sire now. PT Building services are incharge of construction. At the moment a lot of debris is being cleared. I saw when I was walking back to work the other day a large structural piece was being raised to the roof. I was taling to a worker there and he said a tower crane will be placed at the back of the building.

I went past this building a few days ago, and it looks like a skeleton.

Most of the walls and internal structures have been removed, leaving only the structural skeleton.

Temporary fencing has been placed inside the building. Since the building is a skeleton, I'd hate to think of the vertigo you could get looking straight down from 13 levels with no barrier at all!!!

A smaller, second crane has arrived too

Update for youse. The southern side is getting a large "channel" dug into it. Judging by the width it almost looks like they are preparing for the life core to be placed there.
A temporary elevator is in place and it is all go!

You're right pikey. It made the 10 news today.

Here is some renderings I found off the official site of Air Apartments, there will be more coming as soon as I find more.



There is some extra information about Air Apartments as well. It will have 141 apartments, it will be completed by 2005, and apartments will be on sale from October in 2004.

The website is http://www.airapartments.com.au/ . There is a video which shows all 360 degrees of the building under the section named Air Apartments.
