Urban Design: Adelaide’s Tallest Skyscraper

adelaide-skylineUrban Design: A new 36-level project planned for Frome Street, just off North Terrace, in the Adelaide CBD is set to become the city’s tallest residential tower.

Developer Kyren Group has appointed Colliers International to market the slender mixed use building which is set to occupy a 4163sqm site at 11-27 Frome Street in the Adelaide CBD.

The project will yield 88 apartments, with the residential component of the building occupying levels 22 to 36 as reported by The UD.

The Frome Street development, which is currently before the Development Assessment Commission, features outdoor entertaining areas, an outdoor pool more than 10 floors up and luxury penthouses at the top.

Developer Kyren presented its design to Adelaide City Council last week in order to make Tavistock Lane — which runs adjacent to the development on the south side — a public lane.

Levels 11 to 21 will comprise 60 one, two and three bed serviced apartments, while the ground floor to level nine will be home to a hotel.

Colliers International’s Nick Pelvay and Aimee Guo have been appointed marketing agents.

Urban Design – Skyscrapers

“The residential and serviced apartments will have separate car parking, entrance lobbies, and lift access from the residential,” Mr Pelvay said.

The project will also incorporate a separate 21 storey student accommodation tower fronting Synagogue Place, which will incorporate approximately 268 beds with a ground floor cafe.

Mr Pelvay said the project would be integral to the activation of the eastern end of the Adelaide CBD, including the activation and development of a key laneway, Tavistock Lane. To read more click here.
