Adelaide's skyline is set for a dramatic change, with planning approval granted for the city's tallest residential building.
The new $100 million 30-level apartment development,
Kodo, will be built in Angas Street and will rise 103.2m over the CBD.
Approval by the Development Assessment Commission (DAC) follows strong endorsement of the project by the State government architect.
Designed by leading architects Woods Bagot, Kodo will incorporate 208 apartments with ground floor retail and commercial tenancies.
Kodo will be developed with a four level podium which will incorporate car parking, dedicated bicycle parks as well as residential apartments. On the top floor of the podium, Kodo will feature a communal sky garden with landscaped entertaining and recreation areas. It will also be home to six apartments with mezzanine floors and generous private terraces.
“Living at Kodo, residents will be in the heart of the city and just a few hundred metres from Victoria Square, Gouger Street and the Adelaide Central Markets. It’s also a short walk or tram ride to the burgeoning Riverbank Precinct including the new Adelaide Oval.”
Kodo will also provide a boost to the construction industry with around 250 jobs expected to be created through the development.
Kodo will launch to market this month with registrants given the first opportunity to purchase.
