Plans lodged for 12-storey apartment building at 6-8 South Esplanade, Glenelg, next to Seafield Tower mansion

PLANS have been lodged for a 12-storey apartment building on Glenelg’s South Esplanade — the first since major zoning changes were introduced to allow taller developments at the Bay.

The 63-apartment building is planned for 6-8 South Esplanade.

It would be immediately south of the 1876-built State Heritage-listed Seafield Tower mansion — divided into apartments — which would be restored using funds raised through the sale of apartments in the new building.

Property Council executive director Daniel Gannon said renewed development interest in Glenelg would mean “more hard hats and steel caps for South Australians, along with economic development and stimulus for our state’s economy”.

“This type of interest in Glenelg — and other metropolitan suburbs — represents a green light to the calls made by the property sector ... to remove onerous planning and development barriers,” Mr Gannon said.

“The density fuse has now been lit, which means it’s up to the property sector to produce quality residential stock to a market whose appetite is growing for vertical living.”

The rezoning in May allowed 12-storey buildings on South Esplanade between Jetty Rd and Saltram St, on Colley Tce, the western end of Anzac Highway and the southern end of Adelphi Tce.

The South Esplanade project is a partnership between the Australian National Institute, which owns holiday units at number seven, and Chasecrown architect Louis Kanellos and Medallion Homes managing director Peter Katelanis, who together own the La Mancha holiday suites at number eight.

Both modern buildings would be demolished under the plans, which have been lodged with the state’s Development Assessment Commission.

None of the project partners were available for interview last week.

However, they said through a public relations agency the development would make the beach more accessible through a new public walkway connecting South Esplanade with St Johns Row.

“The project will be the first significant residential development on the Glenelg seafront for more than a decade and provide much-needed 21st century housing stock and an economic boost for Glenelg,” they said.

Seafield Tower is among four State Heritage-listed mansions on the South Esplanade.

During consultation for the rezoning, several South Esplanade residents expressed concerns about 19th century homes being overshadowed by taller developments.

Belinda Singleton said if tall buildings were built next to the heritage properties, this would make it even harder to imagine what the area was like when they were built.

“When they’re next to a high-rise building, it does not give that same appeal,” Ms Singleton said last week.

In June, Planning Minister John Rau gazetted Glenelg and Glenelg North as suburbs where applications for developments over four storeys could go directly to the Development Assessment Commission, rather than Holdfast Bay Council.

I am pretty sure she is the only person imagining that when viewing the heritage buildings. That argument wouldn't hold up on appeal.

I wonder if this will get approved, I heard that when 3 St Johns Row (diagonally opposite this site) was sold the new owners wanted to build apartments and it was turned down - not sure if this was true or "office gossip", that group does have 13 units making about 125K a year in rent - It was sold for $1,650,000 in 2014 - 7.5% yield is pretty good maybe they want to sit on it for a while. Anyway the Grand is 12 stories so I don't see an issue with this project apart from the heritage buildings - this article about 3 St Johns Row has a good picture showing the site in question - - http://www.news.com.au/finance/real-est ... 6768537707 - It's 3 blocks 6, 7 and 8 (The west side of the road is numbered as South Esplanade - east is St Johns Row)

As far as I know this development will be assessed by the DAC, not the council, so local politics will be less of an issue.

There should be a law whereby people have to dress in period costume when they walk in front of heritage buildings. This will help people get an idea of what the area was like when the building was built.

As an obvious heritage advocate on this forum, even I feel that her comments are nonsense... The same kind of bullshit that the APPA pull. If she has a problem with the height or the fact that the development simply doesn't please her, fair enough. But to use heritage as a tool in her quest against the said proposal just makes those of us who promote the retention of heritage in progress look like we share a similar perspective to her.

The only problem I see with building on the foreshore is the fact that it blocks out the appeal of developments that are built more inland (i.e. destroying the view).

There was an article in the local Messenger, where a spokesman for the developers states that interest in this development has been high, and that they may have to "manage demand, rather than generating it".

Sounds promising, however, I also realise it may also just be marketing spin.

Just shows when an apartment building is well designed, well located and marketed well. It will sell fast.

I think Glenelg is on a cusp of another boom period.
Almost all apartments in Glenelg’s 8 South Esplanade development sold less than three months after the building was approved

ALMOST all of the apartments in a Glenelg beachfront apartment building approved less than three months ago have been sold, which the owners say is “unprecedented”.

Only eight apartments of 52 remain unsold in the 8 South Esplanade development, situated just south of the Stamford Grand hotel.

Medallion Homes general manager and 8 South Esplanade Consortium spokesman Jordan Katelanis said interest from buyers had been overwhelming.

“8 South Esplanade has benefited from its high-profile location and the volume of passing foot traffic over the Christmas and New Year holiday period,” Mr Katelanis said.

“Buyers have been impressed by the development’s dress-circle location, design and the quality of the planned amenities within the building.

“This is reflected in the unprecedented sales and all buyers being owner-occupiers attracted by the lifestyle offered by 8 South Esplanade.”

The Development Assessment Commission approved the 12-storey, $75 million project on December 15.

Back then, it comprised 63 apartments, but demand for larger apartments from buyers has led to the consortium last month lodging amended plans for 52 instead.

This has yet to be approved by the DAC.

Prices for those still for sale range from $695,000 to $2.75 million.

Two penthouses will be released later this year.

Construction will start later this year and is expected to create up to 200 jobs.

As well as the apartment block, the development includes a new walkway between St Johns Row and the esplanade and renovation of the 1870 Seafield Tower mansion.

Sixteen neighbours opposed the development during consultation, mainly concerned about traffic and parking issues on St Johns Row.
