Nightingale Housing has announced Bowden as their first project outside of Victoria. They've won a slew of awards for their sustainable and community-focused housing in Melbourne. Not sure which site they'll be taking on, but the ballot for involvement (as an 'ethical' social/environmental builder, there are eligibility criteria) is open: https://nightingalehousing.org
That's excellent! I saw they were teasing an Adelaide project, and have always thought they would be a great fit for Bowden. Their model and developments to date have been very interesting. If we didn't already have an apartment, we'd be all in on that ballot.

And in other news, the mural on the western wall of Park Central is now underway by Seb Humphreys. There were a few options by different artists that were put to the owners in the building to vote on. (Image via the Life More Interesting FB page)

Whether it's accurate or not, who knows.

Here's the article it's from:
Nightingale Housing to build carbon neutral Bowden apartment project without carparking

Investors will be unable to buy apartments in a new housing project, with priority instead given to essential workers, Indigenous Australians and people with disabilities wanting to own their first home.

Melbourne-based Nightingale Housing is undertaking its first “sustainable” SA project at Bowden, which will have no carparking and feature up to 30 per cent affordable housing and 15 per cent disability- accessible housing.

Costs will be further reduced, Nightingale says, through the absence of a marketing campaign or sales suite.

Nightingale has not revealed the precise location of the project, or number of apartments, citing ongoing negotiations with development partners.

Charles Sturt Council is still assessing the development application. Nightingale has built, or is building, 14 similar projects across Australia and has been looking for an Adelaide location since late 2018.

Head of operations Dan McKenna said the city was a “logical step”.

“We have a great site close to the city and parklands, and we have really dedicated partners in South Australia who are keen to facilitate the process,” he said.

All apartments will be sold to owner-occupiers, with a portion of apartments allocated, with priority, to essential workers, such as nurses, Indigenous Australians, people living with disabilities and people working in the arts. An initial 20 per cent of units will be sold by a priority ballot.

The building will be carbon-neutral, featuring high thermal ratings and rooftop solar.

The building will be designed by Melbourne firm Breathe Architecture, whose director Jeremy McCleod is also founding director of Nightingale.

Construction is expected to start early next year and take 12 to 18 months to complete.

Going by the larger render it’s on Second St, backing on to the train line (the large gum on the left is where the crossing over the train line is over to Loose Caboose, and the white building behind is the terraces opposite the back of The Gov)

Should have quite a few more levels to go. Pretty sure it's the same as higher On The Park building on the right (they should look like one building once completed).

Still not full height. It will have the same 3-level setback as the completed section on the right (painted in the dark grey)
