Can anyone explain why the developer of these low-rise buildings at Hurtle Square are allowed to block off entire roadways for their construction sites? Hurtle & Co just down from this has literally blocked up that whole corner both in terms of parking and thoroughfare, the development across the road did the same...
The building is on the boundary on the West, South, North (with power lines) sides. How do you think they could erect precast panels, structural steel work and load materials onto the floors? Helicopter or sky hooks? :roll:
I guess they applied to the City of Adelaide for permission, and someone did an assessment of how much disruption would be caused by closing that street for a bit, and set an appropriate fee for the permission to be granted.

250 East Tce is nearing completion which means the crane could come down sometime in the next 6 months (at the rate this project is being built). Please click on picture for bigger.

Looks to have turned out pretty well. These mid-rise developments occurring mostly on the South and East side of the city really help to add a greater sense of density.

Former City Holden site to be transformed into $8 million accommodation complex, $6 million development approved for Gouger St precinct

An $8 million, eight-storey housing complex – described by developers as an “elegant box” – will be built on part of the old City Holden site.

Adelaide City Council’s development panel last night approved the Di Fava Group’s plan to develop the land off Pirie St – between Dawkins Place and Worsnop Ave – with 32 two-bedroom apartments, 10 one-bedroom apartments and three studio apartments.

Thirteen of the units would meet affordable housing guidelines, set to sell for below $407,100.

At the meeting, panel member Mads Gaardboe said the 31m-high development would benefit the city.

“There is a mixture of different sized apartments and that is something that we need in the City of Adelaide,” Prof Gaardboe said.

“This particular part of the city will certainly be invigorated.”

The Di Fava family bought close to 1ha of land from City Holden, which moved its showroom to Mile End, for $35.6 million in 2019, The Advertiser reported.

The new building will be on land previously used to store cars for the vehicle service centre.

Meanwhile, the panel also last night approved a $6 million, seven-storey student accommodation block, including two levels of restaurants, for Field St, near Chinatown.

A council report said Adelaide Golden Field’s development, with 22 apartments and a communal deck, would contribute to making the area a food precinct.

“This proposal together with the recent restaurant expansion at 22-30 Field St and 23-31 Field St supports the evolution of this street as a restaurant destination,” the report said.

At the meeting, there were concerns raised about a lack of bicycle parking and the size of the lobby.


The panel’s presiding member, Mark Adcock, said he was “quite concerned” about the amenity of the building.

“I think it is a poor design, and I don’t think it is such that it shouldn’t be approved, but people need to make informed decisions when they move into these units,” Mr Adcock said.

However, Cr Arman Abrahimzadeh said the design “was not too confronting or protruding”.

The City attempted to contact both developers.

Now THAT is a waste of prime real estate! I had hoped if they built something bigger on this site and more people living around that side of Grenfell Street that the producers bar may re-opened, oh well!

Producers has been closed since the owner was arrested two and a half years ago
Is it heritage listed?
Don't see any future for it until after it's sold and most likely renovated

That’s only one small section of the City Holden site, so still plenty of room for something far greater.

The City Holden site is massive; this appears to be only a small, tangential part. The scale is probably appropriate given it seems to be replacing the parking shed on Worsnop Avenue (sorta behind the Hotel Tivoli). The main sites on Pirie St and Grenfell St remain ripe for development.

Can anyone post the renders from the article?
