Walkerville DTEI Redevelopment
Written by Howie Friday, 16 April 2010 16:23
AdelaideNow have an update on the Walkerville DTEI redevelopment today.
THE former Transport SA building at Walkerville is set to be reborn as a $60 million residential and hotel complex.
Melbourne-based Asian Pacific Building Corporation wants to convert the building into 436 rooms, including 336 apartments, 100 hotel suites and 32 serviced offices.
With an indigenous art-theme, there would also be a gymnasium, café and restaurants, galleries, swimming pool and tennis court.
APBC chief executive officer Will Deague said the project would signal a potential future extension of the CBD area.
"We saw the site advertised and as we have done a very similar project in Melbourne, and specialise in the refurbishment of this style of building, we then investigated the location and came to the realisation that it is one of the premier suburbs in Adelaide and couldn't miss out on the opportunity."
The apartments will cost buyers from $299,000 to $1 million plus and will be available in November 2012.
The building was purchased from the State Government for about $12 million.

New Feature Sensational-Adelaide Forums on Iphone #Tapatalk
Last Updated on Thursday, 01 April 2010 08:57 Written by Howie Thursday, 01 April 2010 08:53
One of the drawbacks of our forum is that up until now it's been difficult to navigate through a mobile phone such as the IPhone. So it's been made a high priority that we sort this issue out.
We'd like to introduce to you a third party application on the IPhone called Tapatalk. It's a slimline forum browser, and we've just finished with the registration of Sensational-Adelaide onto the Tapatalk platform.
To install this app, you need to search for "tapatalk" on your IPhone's App Store. Then browse for Sensational Adelaide. Tapatalk Free has limited functionality (such as you can't see fullscreen images, reply to threads etc, but there is a paid version where this functionality is available. Note we don't make a cent from Tapatalk, we're just taking advantage of their platform.
Here's what it looks like once installed.
We'll be making quite a few more changes in the coming months, so stay tuned.
