New high-rise face of life

Article from: The Advertiser

THREE apartment buildings – one partially over the Port River – will make up the next stage of Newport Quays if approved by the State Government.

The third stage in the Port Adelaide waterfront redevelopment, worth $250 million, would be made up of about 400 new homes and a 100-berth marina and valet boat parking facility.

Plans were lodged on Wednesday with Planning SA's Development Assessment Commission.

Newport Quays Consortium spokesman Todd Brown described the new apartment building designs as "iconic".

"In a striking architectural statement by architects Woodhead and Denton Corker Marshall, one of these stunning apartment buildings will literally float right over the Port Adelaide River creating a truly iconic landmark for the Port Adelaide inner harbour," he said.

The third stage in the $2 billion Newport Quays project, being developed by joint venture partners Urban Construct and Multiplex Living, would take two years to build.

More than 3000 people have registered an interest in the precinct, which would be SA's largest single stage release.

In addition to the three apartment complexes, the proposal incorporates a cluster of three-storey villas, each of which would have a private marina berth.

There will also be home office accommodation available, as well as cafes and restaurants, a waterfront public plaza for community events and three public jetties.

"Stage three is about new frontiers and about creating a truly landmark form for Port Adelaide, encapsulating the spectacular water views along the entire vista of the Port Adelaide River," Mr Brown said.

The release follows the near completion of stage one, known as Edgewater. Stage two, Marina Cove, is under construction.

Big, bold and beautiful! I was worried Newport Quays was kind of petering out with all the townhouses, but this is just awesome.

From that article in today's Sunday Mail it stated that UC is considering another three 12 storey buildings for the next release. That will be 6 10+ storey buildings down at the port!!!

Another thing, why is the local council complaining about this development when there is something like 2000 new dwellings being built in this development all paying vast amounts of council rates???

port heritage blah blah blah, ruining views blah blah blah, minority groups blah blah blah. You know the usual dribble that nimbys come up with.

But you wont hear these people complain when there property values go up.

the heritage precincts (hart's mill and surrounds) should be preserved at all costs. they are such beautiful and dominant buildings that it would be such a shame if they were surrounded with glassy boxes and townhouses.

I LOVE that the Port is finally getting a face lift. What however will happen to a lot of the lower class areas? Will they move out, only to be replaced by new development?

They are not being touched directly by the redevelopment, although there will be some effects on the surrounding districts created by this urban renewal which are already being seen such as increasing property values.

So naturally these houses will end up being taken over by new development in time? Sounds cool. They can't have these slum like areas in a place that will look so nice. I take it the industrial areas are staying?
