The Alta Apartments demonstrate a sophisticated approach to inner city apartment living. The luxury apartment building incorporates unique facade finishes and has picturesque views across the South Parklands, and the dynamic city skyline on the north side.


The scope of work included:

  • construction of a six-level apartment building including car park and service area to ground floor level
  • construction of 14 apartments and three penthouses
  • construction of a roof deck
  • installation of copper clad facade
  • installation of spiral staircase to roof deck.


The building encompassed a footprint of roughly 19 metres by 33 metres and was constructed in two sections to overcome tight space and access constraints, and the inability to close one of the cityÍs main roads for extended periods of time. This innovative, logistical solution allowed the first stage of works to be delivered with an onsite crane, and the second stage of works to be delivered using a mobile crane on the street in close consultation with Adelaide City Council. This enabled the project to be delivered without delay and resulted in positive community consultation outcomes.
