Built Environs reaches the top of West Franklin
Built Environs has reached a significant milestone in reaching the top of West Franklin, a 20 storey structure and one of Adelaide’s largest urban regeneration developments located in the West End part of Adelaide’s CBD.
Nicho Teng, Managing Director of Greaton comments, “Construction started on the project in April last year and we are on track to open early next year. This is a significant milestone for the business. We are demonstrating our commitment to job creation in Adelaide and helping stimulate the growing economy.
Daryl Young, Managing Director at Built Environs said, “The West Franklin project has provided the perfect platform to showcase Built Environs multi-story building ability, whilst continuing to grow and develop our collaborative working relationship with Greaton.
“With the super structure now reaching its highest point, both jump forms have been removed. The next major milestone will be the removal of the two tower cranes which is programmed for September this year.”
Lord Mayor Martin Haese congratulated Greaton and Built Environs on reaching this milestone.
“Quality developments are strong contributors to Adelaide’s reputation as a truly vibrant place to live, work and play,” said the Lord Mayor.
“Aided by schemes such as the City of Adelaide’s ‘Free Rates for Five Years’ program for owner-occupiers, West Franklin is another great example of how Adelaide’s West End is growing into a thriving residential precinct.”
The first stage of West Franklin is located on the corner of Elizabeth and Franklin Streets and comprises 271 residential apartments spread across two towers (north tower is 20 storeys and the south tower is 18 storeys). They both share a common podium comprising 1,245 sqm of retail and commercial on the ground level, resident facilities and car parking.
Residential facilities in the podium area, adjoining the two towers on level seven include a 20 metre glass edged pool, gym, sauna and steam room with spectacular views to the beach, CBD and parklands. This area will also feature a landscaped Sky Park BBQ area, seated areas, indoor lounge, kitchen and dining spaces, golf driving simulator, exclusive cinema and shared library/office. The north tower’s level 20 boasts a stunning roof top terrace, indoor/outdoor seating and fireplace for residents.
