Adelaide Converts to Loft Style Living

Adelaide’s urban evolution is continuing to take shape with the launch of an innovative new residential development which takes its cue from New York style loft living. 

Flinders Loft, developed by Guava Lime Property Solutions, is a $16 million project to convert a nineties former office block on Flinders Street into one of the city’s most fashionable and forward-thinking new residences.

Featuring double height ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and spacious open plan living areas, Flinders Loft is the first redevelopment of its kind in Adelaide. The building’s 18 boutique apartments echo the design of the Manhattan warehouse conversions which have revolutionised urban living in New York over the past decade.   

Guava Lime director Michael Loucas said that demand amongst Adelaide homebuyers for high quality, design-led residences in the city centre is increasing.

“Adelaide may be Australia’s most liveable city, but modern city dwellers are looking for more than just a central location,” Mr Loucas said. “As our population grows and cultural renaissance continues, we need to deliver innovative and inspiring accommodation options that go far beyond the standard high density, compact apartment living.

“With Flinders Loft, we are offering residents an aspirational lifestyle that combines the convenience of a city centre location with spacious, innovatively-designed and ecoresponsive living spaces not seen before in the CBD.  The emphasis is on work, live and play all within the same precinct. This is what sets Flinders Loft apart from other developments on the market.”

Flinders Loft will place a strong emphasis on green living practices. Residents will also be encouraged to embrace more sustainable lifestyles, with a range of green measures planned including a shared pool car.  

“Once complete, the building’s green credentials will be considerable,” Mr Loucas said. “Ensuring the development is sustainable has been a priority from the start – it’s one of the reasons we chose to convert an existing building which had redevelopment potential rather than sending in a demolition crew or building from scratch.”

Buyers will have the opportunity to mix and match from a range of premium, contemporary finishes that include timber floors as standard fitout and complemented by high quality finishes including Miele appliances and innovative joinery.

Apartments will comprise the upper levels of the building, while the ground floor will feature office space and a ground floor café or organic food store.  Flinders Loft is centrally located on Flinders Street and in close proximity to parklands, popular retail and dining precincts and Adelaide’s business centre.

The sales office at 276 Flinders Street will be open from 30 April. For more information or a private viewing, register your interest at www.flindersloft.com.au. Alternatively, contact Julianne Price at the sales office on 0467 276 276.

Adelaide’s hottest new address is a near sell-out

Proving that the Baju apartment complex in Henley Beach is set to become one of Adelaide’s most sought-after and exclusive addresses, almost all of the 38 luxuriously appointed apartments and 10 exclusive penthouses have been sold prior to public release.

Sales for neighbouring complex H20 are quickly following suit, with just a handful of apartments still available. Agent Julianne Price said she’s not surprised at Henley Square’s popularity:

“Both Baju and H20 offer state-of-the-art living in a stunning beachside location, with all the convenience of the city just a 15 minute drive away.

“Many buyers have commented on the cosmopolitan feel of the development and the fact that it ticks so many boxes – from the high quality of the finishes through to the stunning views.

“We’re expecting the last few apartments at H20 and Baju to be snapped up very soon.”

A stunning addition to the Henley Beach landscape, Baju comprises 40 luxuriously appointed apartments and 8 exclusive penthouses. Living up to its superb location, each home presents the very best in architectural design and premium fixtures and fittings, such as European style kitchens with Miele appliances.

Environmentally sustainable design principles feature throughout, including a remote-controlled louvre system, cross-flow natural ventilation and energy efficient air conditioning. Residences range from one, two and three bedroom apartments with stunning ocean vistas or views to the city and hills beyond. Penthouses offer three or four bedrooms and generous living spaces with sensational views. The address also has its own gourmet supermarket, fine food and boutique shops.
