Australia: Plans have been lodged for a $200 million mixed-use project in North Adelaide.
The development will consist of four new buildings of up to 15
storeys between Brougham Place, O'Connell St and Ward St, featuring
100 serviced apartments, around 100 retirement apartments, a
rooftop lounge and bar, spa and pool, library and cafe. It is
expected to create around 300 construction jobs.
Close to 100 retirement apartments would be spread across three of the buildings, each with different amenities accessible to all residents of the complex. One would have a rooftop lounge and bar, another an indoor spa and pool and the third a hotel-style lobby, library and cafe.
Architect Paul Pruszinski said extensive gardens would cover more than half the site while the heritage-listed stables on Ward St would become a licensed cafe open to the public.
"Most apartments share views over the city and they are absolutely magnificent because they are on the top of the hill overlooking the city and Adelaide Oval," said Pruszinksi.
Developers the Brown family said the "time was right to reinvigorate North Adelaide, provide retirement options close to the city and capitalise on Riverbank development and Adelaide Oval".
The Development Assessment Commission is likely to assess the proposal early next year.
