Adelaide’s skyline is set for a dramatic change, with planning approval granted for the Australian city’s tallest residential building. The new $70 million, 30-storey apartment development, called Kodo, will be built on Angas Street and rise 103 metres over the central business district.

Approval by the Development Assessment Commission follows a strong endorsement of the project by the South Australian government architect. Designed by leading architects Woods Bagot, Kodo will incorporate 208 apartments with ground floor retail and commercial tenancies.

The building will be developed with a four-level podium which will incorporate dedicated car and bicycle parking. The top floor of the podium will feature a communal sky garden with landscaped entertainment and recreation areas. It will also be home to six apartments with mezzanine floors and generous private terraces.

Kodo is the first stage in a master plan for the 5,342 square metre development site, which provides the opportunity to connect Angas Street and Carrington Street through Penny Place with a walkway and plaza. This will run alongside the Commonwealth Law Courts building. Steve Wise, CEO of Flagship Property Holdings, which is developing the site for the owners, Western Core Projects, believes that Kodo provides a genuine opportunity for buyers to make the city their home with a focus on attracting owner-occupiers to help grow the central business district’s permanent residential population.
