ALL 41 apartments in a new nine-storey building proposed for the gateway to the east will be priced at more than $1 million
Plans for the $50 million block opposite the Brewery Apartments on Rundle St, Kent Town, have been lodged with Norwood, Payneham & St Peters Council. Urban Construct chief executive Todd Brown said his firm's latest high profile development would be promoted as a ``millionaire's club''.
``They will be pretty exclusive, it is a boutique-style development.'' The building is a scaled back version of a development rejected by NP&SP in 2003.
Mr Brown said significant changes had been made to the building's scale and design.
``We've worked closely with the ... council and Heritage SA to ensure the development complements its surrounding streetscape and respects and commemorates its heritage value,'' he said.
The new proposal submitted to the council last month is two storeys shorter than the original, and has a smaller footprint.
It also incorporates the site'e heritage-listed building.
NPSP development assessment manager Vanessa Nixon said last week staff were preparing to release the development plans for public consultation.
Ms Nixon said the application would go the the council's development panel in the coming months.
The company first submitted plans to the council in 2003, which were rejected by the panel.
The decision was appealed by the developers, but the Environment, Resources & Development Court upheld the council's verdict.
At the time, the court dismissed the appeal because the design was ``bad mannered'' and did not fit with the NP&SP development plan.
