#COM: City Central Two - 14lvl/51m/office

From the Advertiser's website. Sounds like there'll be a render in the hard copy. If there is, I'll scan it in later:



Tower for old 'Tiser site
By LOUISE TRECCASI
03may06
THE former home of Advertiser Newspapers will be demolished and replaced by a high-rise office tower.

The Tower 2 project at 121-129 King William St will be part of the $600 million City Central redevelopment transforming a city block.

Adelaide City Council has approved the Caversham Property Developments project on the site vacated by the newspaper in October. Tower 2 will be adjacent to the 21-storey Tower 1 project in Waymouth St, to be completed this year.

The latest artist impressions have been released for Tower 2, which will provide 13,000sq m of office space over 12 levels, with ground floor retailing.

The new building will be designed and built to achieve a five-star green rating from the Green Building Council of Australia and a five-star Australian Building Greenhouse Rating for energy efficiency.

More than 90 per cent of the demolished building will be recycled. Asbestos removal is under way at the site and demolition is expected to be complete by September.

Caversham investment, sales and leasing manager Ben Yates said potentially hazardous material would be completely sealed and contained within the Tower 2 site.

He said the second tower would provide advanced technologies and be a leader in sustainable development.

"The sheer scale of the City Central development will change the face of the Adelaide CBD forever," he said.

The City Central project also proposes to transform the landmark GPO building into an international-standard hotel and shopping complex. The hotel tower would be built behind the existing heritage-listed GPO building.

No render in today's Advertiser unfortunately, but I don't imagine it'll be long before it's out.

Not sure why it'd be good to see me around, but cheers guys.

I should get a photo round up on here soon, so I'll make myself a bit more useful.

This development sounds nice, so this is the new advertiser building? (Just double checking)

From Pants post of the Advertiser article. It was this quote down the end that is of interest. It looks as though Caversham are still interested in a hotel complex behind the GPO etc... If bentham goes up and this hotel too that part of town will look really good.

I bet in 10 years time not to mention 20 years Adelaide will look a different city. With City Central, SA Water, SANTOS and IAG on Flinders, some new buildings on King William and the City West project etc. Hope its just the start of better things to come.

No mate, the new Advertiser building's just west of the City Central 1 tower that's under construction on Waymouth Street.

This building's just a general office tower that will be built in place of the old Advertiser building.

I'm glad they are knocking this one down and starting from the ground up, much more exciting that way Will certainly allow CC1 to take centre stage for a while when it is demolished.

Most cranes seem to go up on a weekend, so I'm guessing tomorrow. I also noticed that the base seemed bigger but wasn't sure if it was or not. Thought I was seeing things!!!

Hopefully this building will be mostly demolished by say the end of winter with new construction being well underway by the new year.
