Your Guide To Comparing Adelaide’s Apartment Developments


Adelaide is kicking some major goals right now. As well as being named the 5th Most Liveable City in The World recently, we’ve just taken out the World’s No. 1 Rising Star Destination and have been in the top cities for the Perfect Weather All Year Round list.

In addition to the external accolades for our city, it’s one under constant evolution.

Solea Apartments

The new Royal Adelaide Hospital is on the cusp of opening with a September 2017 launch date, which will see our Health & Biomedical Precinct along North Terrace come to life. The South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) sits at the heart of the Precinct as South Australia’s first independent, flagship health and medical research institute. The University of Adelaide Health & Medical Sciences Building is also under construction. Once complete, this corner of the city will be bringing thousands of jobs to the city, along with new residents. Team that with the city’s booming bar & restaurant scene, and ever-increasing after hours offerings, the endless festivals and entertainment, and the reasons to move into our CBD are forever growing.

Luckily for those of us who want to get amongst it, there are dozens of amazing apartment buildings under construction, or about to be developed, in and around the CBD.

To save you hours of driving around, we’ve put together a handy little guide to show you the highlights of each, their locations, and when they are expected to be completed, so you know how long you have to get your ducks in a row. There’s also a map at the bottom so keep scrolling.

West Franklin, 142-150 Franklin Street

A visionary union of modern design, ideal location, dramatic spaces and curated luxury amenities, West Franklin offers an opportunity to be a founding member of Adelaide’s newest creative epicentre. Rising skywards out of the humble bricks and mortar of the old Balfours site, West Franklin is the first in a series of mesmerising towers planned for an urban village already garnering a reputation as one of the city’s hippest.

Within exists a space of comfort and convenience, and around its base spills the city’s busiest district, pulsing with culture, art and ideas. A defining point in any view of the skyline, Adelaidean rises from a clear and simple architectural vision: timeless elegance, evoking heritage and a thriving future city, encased in an envelope of glass.

The journey of gold is at the heart of Elenberg Fraser’s architectural vision. Fluttering golden screens alter as they rise up the tower and transform Adelaide into something kaleidoscopic. Designed to filter the elements, these screens are a mesmerising tribute to the history of the location.

Bohem, 150 Wright Street

Hurtle & Co, Halifax Street

Make the move up to a more interesting lifestyle in the city, without feeling like you’ve crash landed in the midst of a concrete jungle. Hurtle&Co. is far from the high rise towers and hassles, yet so close to the cosmopolitan city attractions, bordered by parklands, heritage listings and lower scale height limitations, this is the aptly named “The Forest of Dreams”.

Forget the car – stroll to work, a live performance or enjoy some exercise walking, jogging or cycling through Rymill Park, the Botanic Gardens or the River Torrens. The location… the choices.

Luminesque, 108 Currie Street

An address in the centre of the city is one thing. Above the Sofitel is something else again. The name alone says prestige, with a touch of glamour and buzz about it. And by buying an apartment shared by a five-star hotel you can indulge in some hotel extravagances, should you wish. The idea: to add a whole new dimension to staying at home.

Bowden (The Artisan), between 5th & 6th Street Bowden

The Artisan is inspired by the artisans of past and present. Bowden’s newest apartment building is urban living at its best – aesthetically pleasing and aspirational.
