APPROVED: 102-120 Wakefield Street (2x 40m/10 levels)

Quote:
Office design will mix old and new

Chris Day

21Aug07

A $90 MILLION office and car park development with room for about 1000 workers is planned for Wakefield St, opposite the city fire station.

A joint application was lodged with the City Council this month by developers George Kambitsis and the PT Group.

It details a 10-storey office block and a 680-bay public car park, with access via Roper St.

The site at 102-120 Wakefield St, currently housing popular Italian cafe Feliciano's and a car washing business, would be demolished.

A heritage-listed former blacksmith's workshop, in Roper St, would form part of the new building.

``It's a very European response to melting heritage with a new building,'' Mr Kambitsis said this week.

``The idea is to encase the (blacksmith's) building in glass and engrave its history on the glass.''

The development has been designed to reach a five star green rating.

It approved, it would be built in stages with work on the car park expected to start by mid-2008 and the office block soon after, subject to finding a major tenant.

Meanwhile, ground work started this month on a nine-storey office block over Gouger St's black hole the site of the former South Adelaide Creche.

That project, also by Mr Kambitsis, is expected to be finished by October 2008.

Law firm Thomson Playford will lease half of the building.

Hope it gets approved. It's good that we're getting more developments pushing away from the core of the CBD.

Unfortunately, what they are starting to build is another multi-storey carpark for Adelaide, that the ACC require for large office developments. Im pretty sure there is no word or timeframe of when the actual office buildings will begin. Maybe in another few years, but I hope not
