A NEW skyscraper will dot Adelaide’s city skyline, after the South Australian government’s Development Assessment Commission approved a 27-level tower that will be the city’s fourth tallest.

Toga Group of Companies plans to develop a 100 metre, $80 million tower on its Grand Medina Treasury Hotel site in the Adelaide CBD (image, right).

The tower was approved despite warnings from heritage advocates and the Adelaide City Council. The proposed tower will overshadow the adjacent Pilgrim Uniting Church.

A Development Assessment Commission ruled the tower “is reasonably comparable” with surrounding structures.

An elevated gallery link between a new annex and a proposed new tower will be constructed, according to www.accomnews.com.au which reported the redevelopment.
