Confidence sky-high with towers
RHIANNON HOYLE, REAL ESTATE EDITOR

April 14, 2007 12:15am Article from: The Advertiser

CONFIDENCE in the South Australian economy has been highlighted by plans for two premium commercial towers, valued at $210 million, to be developed on Pirie St.

Urban Construct have revealed plans exclusively to The Advertiser, outlining their proposal for two buildings – 14 and 15 floors respectively – next to the recently completed 151 Pirie complex.

The development will deliver almost 30,000sq m of office space to the commercial sector.

Urban Construct chief executive Todd Brown said the timing for the project was "ideal".

"The most recent Property Council of Australia report shows vacancy rates for Adelaide's core office market are at historic lows with a rate of 6.6 per cent, down 1.2 per cent in the six months to January 2007," he said.

"There has been about $500 million worth of commercial properties come on to the market in the Adelaide CBD over the past two years, yet the market has absorbed this influx of commercial offerings and continues to demand more."

The project is the latest in a line of major developments announced by Urban Construct, including the $1.5 billion Newport Quays waterfront redevelopment at Port Adelaide, the $600 million The Precinct redevelopment of the Balfours/bus station sites and the $600 million Holdfast Shores development.

A development application for the Pirie St project was lodged with Adelaide City Council last week.

"We believe this continued economic growth will see the market rapidly absorb the opportunities available in the Pirie St development, with the eastern tower offering 13,000sq m and a further 16,500sq m available in the western tower," Mr Brown said.

The complex will aim to achieve a 5-Star Green Star rating and will include:

ON-SITE parking.

GROUND floor retail space.

CHILDCARE facilities.

A STATE-of-the-art rooftop recreation and function facility – including a pool, gym, sauna, spa and landscaped gardens.

If approved, the eastern building will be the first to come to the market in late May.

Wow! This is getting a bit out of control. Starting to remind me of the 80's boom. We have a heap of commercial towers proposed now with only 2 currently under construction. These towers on Pirie will be great in this position. Sounds like a quality development too. It will be interesting to see which proposed towers go ahead over the next few years. If most go ahead I would say Adelaide is definately in a boom phase equal to the 80's.

From that render, it isn't the most inspiring design but the bulk will definitely stand out on Hindmarsh Square and will change that precinct with COH to begin construction very soon. Starting to really enclose in Hindmarsh Square.

Just received an information pack on this development. It is officially called Aurora on Pirie (don't exactly know whether that is both buildings or just one of them). This building features "spectacular rooftop with state of the art gym, lap pool, sauna, multi-functional meeting rooms, function centre and sculpturally landscaped gardens."

The official website has been launched http://www.auroraonpirie.com.au/

Here are some renders thanks to Howie

For those playing along at home.

Signage, from the square:


Model in the display centre. It looks to be more about displaying the floor space than the façade:


Am I correct in presuming this little red brick office building is going to be demolished? On Hyde St.

Agreed, sack em! We need serious reforms to the LGA system, it's a whole lot of red tape for very little gain IMO.

Ann Moran said she'd vote to allow its development, which is strangely out of character. Yet there are still a lot of noobs on the ACC.

Council blocks building plan

TOM ZED
July 03, 2007 02:15am
A $65 MILLION office development has been blocked by Adelaide City Council, despite nearly half of the building having been sold within days of its release last month.

Developer Urban Construct has sold more than $30 million of office space in the proposed Aurora on Pirie project – more than $25 million of which was snapped up within two days.

The council's Development Assessment Panel refused the project last night because it exceeded the height limit for the zone by 13m.

The 15-storey project – which consists of two joined buildings – was planned to be 53m high.

"It's clear that one needs a substantial building on this site to enclose the (Hindmarsh) Square but a 40m building would do that as well as a 53m building," Councillor Judith Brine said at the meeting.

Treasurer Kevin Foley last week questioned the legitimacy of the council, saying he would like to sack it because "they are an impediment to growth in this state".

While other city buildings – such as Santos House at 137m, Telstra House at 104m and Grenfell Centre at 103m – are markedly higher, the development plan for the area restricts heights to 40m.

A spokesman for Urban Construct told the panel the buildings should be allowed because it provided a transition from the neighbouring development zone, where 53m is allowed.

DAP chairman Brenton Burman and specialist member Michael Doherty both declared conflicts of interest because they had professional dealings with Urban Construct and did not vote on the matter.

Acting chairman Rob Cheesman, Mrs Brine and specialist panel member David Grieve voted to reject plans for the building. Lord Mayor Michael Harbison, who is a member of the panel, was interstate.

Mrs Moran voted to approve the building despite her concerns about its height.

"This is 32 per cent over the plan . . . it's certainly not ticking the height box," she said.

Urban Construct director Todd Brown was not available for comment last night.

I don't know if anybody read the article in the paper, but the new plan is to make Aurora even taller.

The new proposal for a 57m/15lv building has been approved, so we could still see construction start this October!


Thanks to will for the renders
