Approval secured to transform iconic North Adelaide site

For 30 years, the site has lain dormant. Now, with Eighty Eight O’Connell securing planning consent from South Australia’s State Commission Assessment Panel, new life is about to be breathed into North Adelaide.

Woods Bagot is thrilled to be designing this project for Commercial & General. It will transform a community and further enhance Adelaide’s reputation as one of the world’s most liveable cities.

Perched atop an articulated podium structure, a mix of approximately 160 apartments and four penthouses will be incorporated across three structures; orientated to capture views of Adelaide’s city, coast and hills.

The three buildings will be connected by a multi-functional podium and include access to indoor and outdoor swimming pools, as well as a gym, spa and sauna.

An active retail strip will build on O’Connell’s high street history – presenting cafés, restaurants and thoroughfares to create visitor permeability across the development. The unique podium will form the project’s urban density and connect the development with the broader North Adelaide public realm.

The long-awaited catalyst project will transform North Adelaide and bring vibrancy to one of the city’s premier streets.

“It’s beyond aesthetics, for us the responsibility is in regenerating North Adelaide and giving it the future it deserves,” said Woods Bagot Adelaide studio chair Rosina Di Maria, herself a long-time North Adelaide resident.
