Sounds like it has been dumbed down to 4 x 4 Levels but i'll be happy to see anything put on the vacant land.
Work nears on $9m development next the The Highway hotel at North Plympton

WORK on a $9 million apartment complex between the city and the beach will start early in the new year, its developer says.

Palmer Group director Martin Palmer said s tage one of the Anzac Highway, North Plympton, project included a four-storey apartment block made up of 24 two-bedroom and four one-bedroom apartments.

The group will retain the building to rent the apartments out for $300-$400 per week.

Mr Palmer said stage one would be complete at the end of 2016. It had previously been expected to start last year.

The building will go up at the western side of the group’s 20,000sq m site, which surrounds The Highway hotel on Anzac Highway.

Future stages of the project will include three more four-storey apartment blocks, offices and shops as well as a small park.

However, Mr Palmer said there were no plans to start future elements of the project at this stage.

“We’re only focusing on stage one at the moment,” Mr Palmer said.

He felt the project was finally coming together, after the group began buying properties in the area, starting with the Highway 11 years ago.

“It’s a good area because it’s extremely well serviced by public transport – the city is accessible, the beach is accessible,” he said.

“The tram is a minute away.”

The project was approved by the State Government’s Development Assessment Commission in December, 2013.

Believe it or not, but there are actual, real life size construction vehicles on site. What are they doing? No idea, hopefully something more significant than shifting more dirt around.

From The Advertiser, another article saying this project is finally at construction stage...
Work starts on long-awaited $40 million Highway Hotel pub apartment complex

Image

WORK starts today on the long-awaited apartment and retail complex next to Plympton’s Highway Hotel.

The first stage of the project – to be known as Residences on Anzac Hwy – is a $9 million, 28-apartment building called West Tower, on Elizabeth Ave.

Most of the rest of the $40 million project faces Anzac Highway and Marion Rd; it includes shops and a supermarket as well as 90 more apartments.

The development was first approved in 2007 but scaled back in 2013.

Developer and Palmer Hospitality Group director Martin Palmer said he was “thrilled to see this project coming to fruition”.

“This development has been several years in the making and during that time many things, including a fluctuating market and economy, have shaped and changed the plans of the project to ensure that the development will best serve the community,” Mr Palmer said.

“Overall, the changes have created a more sympathetic, smaller footprint project.

Looks like a modern version of a block of flats.

Stage one I think is up to around level 4 when I drove past the other day.

Some amendments to Stage 2 on public notification.

Let's hope that it actually materialises and gets built in less than 10 years.

Highway Hotel’s $40m project changed to house huge supermarket

AN EXPANDED supermarket is at the heart of revised plans for the second stage of the Highway Hotel’s $40 million residential project.

The developers, the Palmer Hospitality Group, has resubmitted designs for the Plympton site.

Stage two initially included an apartment building named East Tower with 16 apartments and another building with 26 serviced apartments.

Under changed plans presented to the State Commission Assessment Panel, the second building has been deleted – and 12 apartments added to the East Tower.

Office space initially proposed for the first floor is replaced by car parking, which moves from the basement to make way for a supermarket storage area.

The supermarket space will be increased by more than 200sq m and space for specialty retail shops reduced and reconfigured.

Development company director Martin Palmer said discussions with potential retail tenants were ongoing.

However, building plans show two of the retail tenancies have already been labelled burger bar and cafe.

“We’ve had some in-depth conversations with a couple of businesses that would be the major tenants,” he said.

“They’re fairly advanced but nothing that is confirmed as yet.”

Mr Palmer said the changes were caused by shifts in market conditions and opportunities.

The variations to the original plans, which were first approved in 2007 and scaled back in 2013, combine the second and third stages of the project into one.

The project’s second stage does not have a start date.

Two additional carpark spaces have also been added to the first part of the project – a $9 million, 28-apartment building due to be completed in May.

The original fourth stage of the development for the northern section of the site is now set to become the future stage three.

It includes another residential tower with 42 apartments.

The whole development could take up to six years to complete and will create an estimated 85 jobs during construction, according to a report by Property & Consulting Australia on behalf of the Palmer group.

Another 215 ongoing full-time jobs would also be created in retail, management, administration, grounds keeping, maintenance and cleaning.
