#U/C: The Precinct - incl 5 x 19lvl/62m apartment towers

Dec 17

Approved - bus stops here

By Andrew Hough


This is the first look at the new $400 million redevelopment of the city's Franklin St bus station.

Under the five-year, three-stage project, the redevelopment will include five 13-storey towers.

These will be built on the bus station site and on the former Balfour's bakery site and will include 1300 apartments.

The plans - revealed to The Advertiser last night - will also provide 150 "affordable" housing units and 360 student accomodation beds.

Adelaide City Council voted unanimously to support the development at a special meeting last night.

The West Central consortium, a joint venture between Urban Construct and Multiplex, is the developer.

Adelaide Lord Mayor Michael Harbison said the development would make the city "more vibrant".

The development will also include a transport interchange, a carpark, shops and restaurants in a complex designed for modern urban living.

"People are really starting to realise the benefit of inner-city living," said Urban Construct managing director James Rice.

____________________________________________________

And I remember Will complaining a few days ago that he thought that the largest buildings in the Central West precinct were not going to be any few levels above the Grote Street proposal.

Can someone please scan the image in today's Advertiser?

That would hardly be worth it when five 13 level buildings would cost less than one 65 level building for the same amount of space.


CUL, my idea of how to put this on ss.com:

List all five buildings under a project - The project name would be called Franklin Street Redevelopment.

Include fact:
This project is part of a larger plan to redevelop the Central West area in Adelaide. It includes apartments, retail and an upgraded transport interchange.

The five buildings could be listed like:
Tower A
Tower B
Tower C
Tower D
Tower E

For now, leave the addresses as Franklin Street/Morphett Street as all buildings are closest to this intersection.

There is a story and render in todays AFR ( Dec 18 ) on page 38 called "Bit of Italy for Adelaide's CBD" !
The $400m, 1,300 apartment project is inspired by the Italian hilltop town of San Gimignano. I'm guessing that will be its name ?
It'll bring a minimum of 2,200 new residents into the area. It will incorporate the major bus interchange, squares, piazzas, 600 carparks, commercial outlets, shops, restaurants, cafes, water features and public art.
Five slim towers , each 13 stories + 1 light box level at the top, will dot the site sitting on top of 4-5 storey podiums = 18-19 stories !
The render clearly shows that the 14 story tower sits ABOVE the 4-5 story podium.

Apt prices up to $1m, most in the high $200's- $400k.

SCAN IT SPAZ!!!!

I saw it on the news last night and the developer said the towers were tall enough to substantially widen the Adelaide skyline with some impressively tall towers. I taped the article and paused on the models shown and I swear I counted 2 of them at 20 levels.

Woah

Construction to start on the towers in march after demolition and prep work.

**** - surely 2003 - 2004 would have to be the biggest development period in SA's history, for sure!!!

How many towers all up in SA now are approved, proposed or under construction????

Sorry dudes, no scanner. Hope some of you went out and bought a copy of the AFR today !!
I'm staring at the render right now and it shows one of the towers ( the others aren't shown) and it's UNQUESTIONABLY a 14 storey apartment tower sitting ON TOP of a 4, maybe 5, storey podium.
So it's 18, maybe 19 floors- which equals the height of Horizon / Embassy ??? ( maybe even taller if some of those podium floors are commercial )
These babies will really beef up the skyline view from the eastern, west and southern burbs ( not the north ofcourse ) !!!!!

If those buildings are about 18 or 19 levels, it is almost definite that the buildings would be taller as Horizon and The Embassy were limited by a 50m height limit, and the floor heights are below 3m on average. Because the podium levels on these buildings are commercial, the average height of each floor will increase by quite a bit.
