Asian Pacific Group appoints project team for King William Street project

8 October 2013    

The Asian Pacific Group has appointed South Australian based architects Woods Bagot along with a locally based multi-disciplinary project team to work on plans for their second Adelaide development.

Woods Bagot Principal Gavin Kain will lead the local team along with Design Architect EnzoCaroscio who worked on the architecture for Sydney’s Ivy – a project which inspired the appointment of Woods Bagot.

Woods Bagot will also draw on the expertise of its global studio network for the King William Street project.

Other local consultants appointed as part of the project team include planning firm MasterPlan, Murray F Young, Sonus, Rawtec and Flightpath.

Asian Pacific Group Chief Executive Officer Will Deague said we’re delighted to have Woods Bagot and a strong local team on-board.

“These appointments highlight our commitment to using South Australian consultants and suppliers,” said Mr Deague.

“Woods Bagot is a South Australian success story which has grown into a global company with an enviable reputation built on designing some of the world’s most outstanding buildings.

“This expertise will be invaluable as the Asian Pacific Group embarks upon creating a brave and bold development which will add a new dimension to the Adelaide skyline.”

The development site is located next door to the Origin Building (formerly Optus Centre) at 411-427 King William Street and within a growing precinct, which has seen the recent development of The Wave and Edge and the new Credit Union Centre.

“We are excited by the opportunity of creating a new landmark building for the city of Adelaide, said Woods Bagot Design Architect EnzoCaroscio.

“Working with Asian Pacific Group will allow us to create a new Adelaide city address of an international standard, said Mr Caroscio.

“The site is in a great location on one of Adelaide’s main city boulevards with the opportunity for amazing views to the city skyline, Adelaide Hills and the coast.”

Plans will be developed for the site over the next two months with a development application expected to be lodged in November.

The Asian Pacific Group will start marketing the project in early 2014 subject to receiving the necessary planning approvals.
