We are proud to announce our Adelaide-based property development arm, Starfish Developments, has taken out 4 prestigious industry awards for its apartment building ‘Bohem’.
Located in the south-western corner of Adelaide’s CBD, the 22-storey building received the following accolades from the Urban Development Institute of Australia – South Australia (UDIA SA):
- 2018 High Density Award
- 2018 Urban Renewal Award
- 2018 Design Excellence Award
- 2018 Innovation In Development Award.
Starfish Developments has an established track record of award-winning residential developments; Starfish has now won the UDIA SA High Density Award – 3 out of the past 4 years.
“We are thrilled and humbled to accept 4 UDIA awards for Bohem on Whitmore Square, which represent the pinnacle of success for our industry,” said Starfish Developments and Ironfish Adelaide Managing Director, Damon Nagel.
“Our team strives for excellence, working closely with our external partners and suppliers to break new ground in quality and standards.”
At Ironfish, we work exclusively with developers who share our commitment to quality – whether they are industry-leading public or private companies or our own partners, such as Starfish Developments. This ensures we can continue to deliver genuine value to our investors, providing preferential access to premium developments and properties Australia-wide.
Life at Bohem
An urban renewal project, Bohem was designed to address the growing demand for city-living, the increasing trend towards smaller households and related need for higher density accommodation.
Designed by Enzo Caroscio, architect of the iconic ‘SAHMRI’ building in Adelaide, Bohem blends with the adjacent park square (Whitmore Square) and exudes an inner-city ‘oasis’ feel , with its 22-metre green wall and use of hanging plants and seasonal foliage. Luxury amenities for residents include a heated pool with recreation deck and gym.
Bohem allows residents to enjoy the hustle and bustle of city life with laneway bars, Central Market and China Town on doorstep – with considerable government and private sector investment in the immediate local area of the city. Other new commercial activity includes new cafes and a microbrewery, with businesses and creative industry relocating to the area.
UDIA SA CEO Pat Gerace said, “Bohem reinvigorated and re-energizes a previously neglected site creating a ‘vertical suburb’ integrated with commercial units, acting as a positive catalyst for the surrounding community space.”
Mr Nagel said urban renewal projects play an important role in helping to grow Adelaide as a great place to live, visit and do business.
“Effective urban renewal will continue to attract residents and commercial enterprises to historically under-developed parts of the city including the south western corner and very importantly, Port Adelaide, where we look forward to continuing our success with Dock One,” Mr Nagel said.
We congratulate Starfish Developments once again on the big win. We also congratulate our investors in Bohem – we are sure you are as proud as we are to be associated with such an outstanding development.
