$40m development could house needy
By LOUISE TRECCASI
22apr06

A $40 MILLION development is earmarked for two major city sites owned by Adelaide City Council.

The council wants to seek developer interest for a single project at the carpark sites - 102 and 114 Waymouth St - which may incorporate residential and student housing, retail and commercial space.

The development proposal could include affordable housing for the vulnerable and low-income workers or a 190-apartment complex.

The council bought the sites in February for about $2.7 million.

Approval for a registration of interest process will be sought at a city strategy and policy committee meeting on Monday night.

A council report, to be tabled at the meeting, says the State Government has expressed interest in using one or both sites to provide affordable housing for the vulnerable and/or low-income workers.

Lord Mayor Michael Harbison said the latest acquisition would add to the "tremendous improvements already taking place on Waymouth St".

The report said favourable consideration would be given to proposals that designate a minimum of 15 per cent of all dwellings as affordable rental housing

If approved, the registration of interest process is expected to close in August.

I think this is the site opposite the proposed 105 Waymouth Street development. I have mentioned this carpark site before. I would say it is one of the, if not the most underdeveloped sites so close to prime office space in the Adelaide CBD. I will be interested to see exactly what gets proposed towards the end of this year. Sounds promising though and I'm glad the council has done something about this site. Waymouth Street has changed dramatically over the last few years and in the next couple it should look drastically different. Should become one of the most modern appearing streets in Adelaide after being so neglected over the last 2 decades.

I am actually not very happy about this development. 100 Waymouth Street or the Workcover building is in my opinion one of the most attractive buildings in the CBD, and I feel this development will block the building with a boring/ ugly concrete wall. As the proposed apartment is for homeless and poor people then I can only imagine what kind of soviet style cheap looking monolith will be erected on the site.

It's not for the homeless/poor people mate.

All it says is that the council will look favourably upon a affordable housing component of at least 15%.

From memory, the Balfours site proposal incorporates that or more and you wouldn't call that an unattractive development.

[COM] #Proposed: Kings Apartments - 26 levels, Waymouth Street

#10 Post by Ho Really » Sat May 05, 2007 1:53 pm

Saw side elevations for a proposed 26 level twin tower apartment complex in Waymouth Street on sites adjacent Queens Theatre. I think the sites in question are the ones in this thread: $40M Development Proposal - 102 and 114 Waymouth St.

The towers will be 23 levels above ground with a further three levels below ground: two for carparking and a third for services. The towers will be on each side of Queens Theatre which will be covered by a glass canopy. There will be a pool, fitness centre and a roof garden. Height to the 22nd storey floor is 69.3 metres (buidling's overall height probably around the 73 metre mark). Name of developer, architect, etc., confidential.

Cheers

Wish I could, but I would probably get into a lot of trouble. Since this hasn't been announced anywhere else (as far as I know) and, I'm not even sure if it has gone through ACC, let's hope it goes ahead and we get to hear about it soon. I can add that it is a typical residential building with balconies for each apartment. There were no construction plans or renderings of the buildings. I can't say too much more.

Cheers
