An $18 million office building with space for up to 200 staff is property mogul Andrew Taplin’s latest plan to transform Jetty Rd.
The Taplin Real Estate director has lodged plans for a six-storey building at 85-87 Jetty Rd, between Byron and Jetty streets.
If the state’s planning body approves it, the development would spark a huge change for the strip, which is based around retail and entertainment.
Mr Taplin’s latest plans are part of a $85m development package at the Bay, involving other large retail and apartment blocks at Colley Tce, Partridge St and Bayside Village, Brighton Rd.
“One of the areas Glenelg is lacking in is good, high-quality, A-class office accommodation,” he said.
“You should really have offices that feed straight out into retail precincts – they work hand-in-hand. It’s really an evolution if you like, of new centres.”
The development would feature shops and parking at ground level and more carparking space, along with offices, on the floors above.
Mr Taplin said the existing shop spaces – which currently include Haigh’s Chocolates – would be retained and receive a facelift, while the office building would be built around them.
Jetty Rd retailers would be boosted not only by an incoming office population of up to 200 people, but the clients and visitors that went along with it, Mr Taplin said.
“It could be an opportunity to inject a lot of people into the area,” he said.
“Professionals will be meeting clients, buying coffees and lunches, they might utilise public transport to easily get into the city, they would drop off their dry cleaning as they walk into their office – it’s good in my books all year round.
“We’ll be providing an additional service, plus it will assist all of the retailers that are already down there.”
Many existing offices at the Bay are in converted homes.
Mr Taplin hoped work could start later this year, in conjunction with a planned $17m upgrade of the Bayside Village shopping centre, turning the mall into an eight-storey building with shops and apartments.
After that, his company would work on a seven-storey apartment and shopping complex at the corner of Jetty Rd and Colley Tce, followed by an eight-storey development at the corner of Patridge St.
The office plans are under assessment by the State Commission Assessment Panel.
