A 20-storey apartment building has been granted development assessment approval for Adelaide’s East End.
The $70 million "Monument" tower will rise 63 metres high and have sweeping views of the Adelaide foothills, parklands and city.

Stephen Connor, director of C Projects, said “As well as being catalyst for economic development in the East End, the design of this project will also see the existing heritage buildings on the site maintained and enhanced as part of the redevelopment.
“The project will also add significant employment and economic benefit for South Australia, with an estimated 110 jobs created in construction and a further 1100 jobs in the broader community.
“Not only is it the premier lifestyle destination in Adelaide, all apartments have superb, generous, functional floorplans and will enjoy priceless views.
“It’s a great time to be buying an apartment in Adelaide, with stamp duty, rate holiday and construction incentives available for early purchasers,” Mr Connor said.
Completion is anticipated for 2020.
