Kodo apartments is set to be Adelaide's tallest residential development, with its rooftop to feature the city's tallest "sky garden".
Kodo will offer one, two or three bedroom apartments in the heart of Adelaide within its commercial business district on Angas Street near Victoria Square with lofts and penthouses that will be designed using natural materials, elegant fine profiles and neutral colours. Prices start from $346,500.
The rooftop garden will comprise a 1,074sqm terrace area including lawns, trees and barbecue areas.On the top floor of the podium, an exclusive resident sky garden will be established with landscaped entertaining and recreation areas, as well as surrounding apartments with mezzanine floors and generous private terraces.
The external feature is aimed to set Kodo apart as a space for residents to maintain their own garden. Communal gardening is increasingly popular around the world, particularly for those who live in urban areas who wish to retain a garden.
The developers behind the project are PCD - Premier Capital Developments - who have recently completed the construction and delivery of one of Flagship’s key land holdings, the 237 residential tower – Sunday Coventry Street Apartments, Southbank plus the proposed residential development at North Terrace in Adelaide.
Located near Central Markets, Kodo will incorporate 208 apartments plus ground floor retail and commercial tenancies. It has been designed by world-class architect Woods Bagot with a four-level podium from ground level, which will incorporate car parking, bicycle parks and residential apartments.
Architect Peter Miglis from Woods Bagot is passionate about how the terrace amenities will elevate the lifestyle at Kodo.
“Being able to grow your own fruit and vegetables on the terrace gives a sense of ownership, and a community, that we’re creating,” he says.
“The project is very much a catalyst of rejuvenating vertical living within the city itself.”
Kodo’s residents will also have the Adelaide Central Market just 350m from the doorstep of the building.
Steve Wise, Director of Flagship Property Holdings and developer of Kodo apartments, told The Advertiser that Adelaide city continues to give buyers more bang for their buck.
“That’s why we are investing in Adelaide … history shows that it’s always better to invest in a recovering or rising property market, rather than at the top of the market or when it’s in decline, so on that basis alone Adelaide definitely looms as an exceptional buying opportunity.”
Australian construction company Watpac has been announced as the preferred contractor to build Flagship Property Holdings’ development worth $100 million, according to The Courier-Mail.
Construction on what will be Adelaide’s tallest residential apartment development is planned to commence mid-year and will create more than 200 new jobs.
Mr Wise said the developer is delighted to partner up with one of the country’s premier construction companies.
“To deliver a large residential project like Kodo, we know how important it is to assemble a delivery team in which purchasers can be confident,” said Mr Wise.
“In Watpac, we not only have a builder with a great track record for delivering landmark buildings across Australia, but we have a construction partner that we have worked with numerous times before who we know can deliver quality award-winning projects.
“Together with Watpac and Woods Bagot, we delivered the Sunday Apartments in Melbourne that won an Australian Interior Design Excellence Award, which is testimony to our combined ability to deliver on a promise.
