ADELAIDE: The Pinnacle (Cancelled)

Today's AFR ( page 52) reports that a DA for a 21 storey office tower has been lodged for Waymouth St in Adelaide by developer Domenic Mattoli.
It will be a tight fit, being only 6.2m wide x 27 m long in the gap right next to the Allegra Hotel !!
The A grade office tower will be a "landmark" and be strata title ( each floor of 180 sqm will sell for $570,000 ) meaning that there's a good chance of it going ahead sooner rather than later !
Architect is Paul Pruszinksi.
The render of it in the AFR has it looking at pretty much the same height at the Allegra and because there is only a 1.6% vacancy rate for A grade offices in the Adel CBD so fingers crossed that it will go ahead soon.
Cool !

What gap? On Waymouth street the Allegra is bordered by anopther street (where the new resi is going ) and the telstra exchange. Unless you mean between the exchange and that 10 storey government building (which IMO is one hot looking biatch) then there we go....

the DA isn't on the adelaide city council's website yet.

Spaz, can you scan the render? I can't help but think this will be the most stupid looking building ever.... 6m lol

Here's the article !

Office tower for the skinny latte set

Aug 07 Mathew Chandler

Melbourne developer Domenic Mattioli is seeking to build what could quite possibly be Australia's skinniest A-grade office tower, The Pinnacle.

Mr Mattioli has lodged plans with the City of Adelaide to develop a 21-storey office tower on a site alongside his five-star Rendezvous Allegra Hotel in Waymouth Street which will target owner occupiers.

It's a tight fit. The new building will have a street frontage of just 6.2 metres and stretch 27 metres from Waymouth Street to an access lane.

Mr Mattioli said this was definitely a building for a small businessman.

The first privately funded project in a decade comes at a time when vacancies in premium-grade office stock are running at an incredibly low 1.6 per cent, although vacancies in A-grade stock are now at 8.4 per cent.

But, rather than seek tenants, Mr Mattioli will strata title the development, selling whole floors for a starting price of $570,000.

The floor plates are just 180 square metres, including room for two lifts and bathroom facilities, and allow a staff per floor of just 10.

Designed by South Australian architect Paul Pruszinski and engineered by Meinhardt PT Design to maximise use of its narrow site, The Pinnacle could be a landmark for years to come.

"The building has been designed to meet a need for stand-alone, high-quality executive and professional accommodation in the CBD," Mr Mattioli said. "I see a significant opportunity in this building and in other niche property markets in Adelaide and will continue to invest in South Australia as a means of realising those opportunities."

Mr Mattioli has spent more than $85 million developing Adelaide properties over the past five years and has developed a broad range of residential, commercial and industrial properties in Melbourne since 1969.

His decision to develop alongside Allegra surprised some people.

Colliers International's head of commercial in South Australia, Paul van Reesema, was taken aback. "There's no land next to the Allegra," he said.

But there is, just not much of it. Mr Mattioli's purchase of the property three months ago went mostly unnoticed by Adelaide's property community.

Selling agent Tony Ricketts of Bernard Booth Commercial said the project would give small business operators the option of buying a whole floor of space on a community title.

Mr Mattioli's other projects in South Australia include the Pacific International Apartments on Frome Street.

His newest venture will have high-speed cabling networks, incorporate a range of "green building technologies" and be served by twin lifts.

theres an artist impression in todays AFR. its nestled in between Allegra hotel and the other bldg. same height. The Pinnacle is just a glass facade with vertical floors panels up to flat roof. its basically a gap filler but it uses its own walls as reinforcement , (not attached to neighbouring bldgs).
So i gave architects a ring and spoke to Paul Pruszinski himself! nice guy! he told me height is 66m to roof and 8m LMR total=74m.
(So ill add 5m to Allegras height of 61m which has been its unofficial height for a while).

Paul was happy about it being thinnest skyscraper in Australia!!!

i told him so far the 203m Freshwater place in melbourne has ratio of 8;1 (203m divided by 25m wide).
Pinnacle in Adelaide will be 12;1! 74m x 6.2m wide. wow!
ill add to ss.com!

It'd be pretty hard to construct such a narrow building of that height, let alone fit a crane in that gap!

It will be very interesting to see just how they'll do it!! Especially since the building will have twin lifts - narrow as core maybe?

Twin lifts strikes me as totally inadequate for 20 stories of tenants.

But $570k/floor is actually pretty god damn cheap. Good investment maybe!

hk-star, I was thinking exactly the same. They could at least split the elevator areas into two, and have an express elevator to one of the middle floors, (preferably 11) and then another 2 from there.

We now know, that this will be Australia's thinnest building.

Could it be the world's thinnest habitable building?

If not, what is the world's thinnest building?

The thinnest inhabitable skyscraper in the world is a 16 floor tall building with 4x4m wide floorplates in Hong Kong.

Sorry, I shoulda explained clearer, the floorplates are 4x4m in length, not including to small section that juts on one corner for the elevator. An elevator would still fit inside that building, but would take about about 3 sq m.

if your after a really tall bldg (as opposed to a 16 floor/45m bldg in HK),the Rio de Janeiro Manhattan Tower!!
Rio´s tower is 114 meters high and only 8 meters wide. Divide 114/8 and you get 14 meters high for each meter wide. A ratio of 14! Its the highest ration in the world.
the waymouth scraper is 12-1 so thats pretty close.

The Pinnacle might not be the thinnest building in the world, but could it be the thinnest building in the Souhtern Hemisphere?

Culwulla,

Do you have a photo of Rio's Manhattan Tower?

crappness that is mighty thin, you would think adelaide was short of space! I would expect something like that from NYC, the floors would probably only fit 2 people, it will make a nice skyscraper wall
