ADELAIDE: 19-21 Waymouth Street - 21s/84m (Part 1)

Just thought there should be a thread on this tower - so far the information is spread across everywhere.

A note on the address:
ACC documents say 19A-21 Waymouth Street
Culwulla's source says 11-29 Waymouth Street
So maybe there'll be other buildings on the site?

Height: 86m - Will be Adelaide's 6th tallest.
Levels: 20
Architect: Woods Bagot Architects Pty Ltd

Useage:
Basement carparking
2 levels of retail
18 levels of office

The building will cost about $60 million to build. Sounds fairly large in size in terms of area per floor.

Hmmm, I'm now reading that the building is now 18 levels, not 20. 17 floors of office space, and ground floor retail.

From ACC:

Record Office Development Supported


Office development in the City is booming.

The Adelaide City Council's Development Assessment Panel tonight gave support to $86.8 million (at cost) worth of new office development - the largest amount approved on record for a single meeting of the Panel.

The Lord Mayor, Mr Michael Harbison, said he was tremendously excited by the renewed confidence being shown in the CBD by commercial property developers.

"This Council is keen to facilitate business growth in the City and has an outstanding record of support for appropriate developments particularly those which show environmental leadership," Mr Harbison said.

"Indeed, the Royal Australian Institute of Architects in its recently released Planning Assessment Survey Report for 2003 listed our Council as the most co-operative one in the State with the highest level of best practice planning procedures.

"This is a resounding endorsement of the efforts of Council staff and the members of this Panel who are committed to helping appropriate developments move ahead without any unnecessary delays.

"It also sends a very positive message to developers in the other States where they are facing increasing delays as a result of extra lodgement work, longer processing times, and unreasonable demands for additional information."

Tonight the City of Adelaide Development Assessment Panel:

supported a new 18 level office building at 11-29 Waymouth Street, a development worth $60m, with 17 levels for office, ground floor retail, plaza and basement carparking and total floor area of 26,364 sqm. It will be the first building in the State to be 5 star Australian Building Greenhouse Rated and only the second in Australia to achieve this rating
supported Admiral House at 151-159 Pirie Street, a nine level building worth more than $17m with 12,185 sqm of floor space, eight levels of office, ground floor retail and basement carparking
approved 53-59 Carrington Street, a five level mixed use retail, office and residential building with basement carparking and floor area of 3113 sqm worth $4.5m
approved the redevelopment of the former Taxation Office at 65-73 King William Street, converting an existing 19 floor vacant office building into 126 residential apartments ranging in size from 72sqm to 93 sqm, with ground floor retail, worth $5m
According to the Lord Mayor with the underlying demand for office space in the CBD - the second highest in the country - and reports of investors actively pursuing owners to sell, premium grade stock in short supply (1.6 per cent vacancy rate) and signs of land-banking by developers and speculators, the development of new office properties is likely to continue for some time. "These new developments could cater for more than 300 additional City workers and this would significantly enhance City vitality and prosperity," Mr Harbison said.

FUUUUUCK!!! Did anyone else see the renders on channel 10 news just then??? It's huuuuge!!!! The north and south sides of the tower extend up to these large blades, and judging by the render, easily over 100m tall. The tower looks as tall as one and a half of the Advertiser building. Plus it's all glass!!! Green glass!!! FUUCK it looks horn!!! The render was form the Vic square side, along with the Bentham st Apartments, that side of the skyline will be bulked up very very nicely!!!!

Calm down Daniel, calm down......

Shit it looks huge from Victoria Square and Pirie Street renderings shown on Ten! It's definetely over double the height of the Advertiser Building as it will become it's neighbour. Completely covered in glass, and a fairly long building with large fins extending from the top of the building. It's going to be Australia's second building by Australian Building Greenhouse rated 5 stars. Some old buildings will be demolished as a result.

Where's CUL, I'm wondering what the height of the building is now.

Nup not gonna tell you.........





Well from what I could tell from the render is it's north and south sides are total dark greeny blue glass which extend much higher than the roof forming these large blades. It's twice the height of the Advertiser building, of which I have been told is getting a makeover. the lift cores look like they are at each end of the building. That's alls I can remember, but FAAAAARK it looked horn!!!

i contacted woods bagot this morning at they quoted these heights>
height to roof-76m
height to blades-86m.
So maybe rendering makes it look alot higher than it is? but the Advertiser bldg is 40m, so this is actually double the height!
cheers

Good news, this won't be the biggest building (or second biggest for that matter) on the Advertiser Block. In today's Commercial and Industrial review this week, they said on the article "City limits ready to reach new heights" the following about the building:

Caversham Properties lodged an application to build an 18-storey office tower next to The Advertiser building in Waymouth Street. This is intended to form the first component of the intergrated redevelopment of the area bounded by King William, Waymouth, Bentham and Franklin Streets.
