PENTHOUSE owners will be living 100m above Victoria Square in a 30-storey tower set to become Adelaide’s tallest residential building.

The $100 million Kodo development, next to the Federal Court building on Angas St, will have 208 apartments and top out at 103.2m.

That will make it about 14m taller than the Vue on King William apartment project under construction at the southern end of King William St.

Kodo will have a communal “sky garden” and recreation area at the top of a five-level podium that will serve as the base for a tower rising a further 25 storeys.

Marketing will begin immediately after the Development Assessment Commission gave the green light last week.

Developers Western Core Core Projects and Flagship Property Holdings previously sought planning permission for an 83-storey building, but put the original application on hold when it bought adjoining land from the State Government fronting Penny Place and Nelson St.

Kodo will now be the first stage of a masterplan for the combined 5340sq m development site, which will connect Angas and Carrington streets via Penny Place with a walkway and plaza. Stage 2 would be another large apartment tower.
