Australia: A $16 million serviced apartment complex at Fisherman’s Wharf in Port Adelaide has been refused planning consent for a second time.
The South Australia Development Assessment Commission refused to
grant developer Hans Ehmann building consent for the 61-unit
project, which has Quest Serviced Apartments lined up as operator
should it get built.
It said the complex did not keep with the historical theme of the waterfront and the building's five-storey height would obstruct views of the State Heritage-listed Birkenhead Bridge.
Quest general manager Andrew Weisz said: "It's a question for the developer themselves about this particular project, but it is a great site and we would be keen to get involved," Mr Weisz said. We have always said that we want to be in Port Adelaide and it is just a matter of when."
