Not a great fan of the towers' design or size, but if this development delivers that sort of streetscape impression, I'll settle for that. Great job by those who've shared/resized the renders. :applause:

Charter Hall to develop two-tower office project on historic Adelaide GPO site

Charter Hall has been confirmed as the developer for a major office project coming up on the historic Adelaide GPO site. The $235 million project is designed by Hassell and Fitzpatrick & Partners, and will feature two office towers of 20 and 15 storeys.

Located between King William Street and the Aust­ralian Taxation Office building on Franklin Street, the 24,500-square-metre development will see construction begin in the second quarter of next year. The design pays tribute to the heritage-listed Telephone Exchange and GPO buildings. The taller 20-storey tower will be designed to achieve 5 Star Green Star and 5 Star NABERS energy ratings.

The precinct will also include about 3000 square metres of retail space. The public space within the site will allow opportunities for activation. Placement of retail and food and beverage frontages has been determined based on existing and potential movement patterns.

The office development already has its first tenant with the South Australian Attorney General’s department taking a 12-year lease in the building.

Any update on this one? I noticed yesterday that the promotional banner-cloth surrounding the site has changed to 'Built.' banner-cloth.

They have recently lodged a stage 1 application to commence so it should start any week now.

What will stage one involve. Doesn't look like there'll be much demolition involved.

Love the street activation. Is stage 1 both or just one of the buildings?

Stage 1 is usually demolition and piling.

Ah apologies!
Even still, will this development see both buildings commence about the same time or will be done in stages?

They have publicly announced leasing for the bigger building. Nothing has been announced for the smaller building as yet.
