Construction starts on new Arts hotel

The Watson Apartments at Walkerville will provide residents with sweeping million dollar views of the City and Adelaide Hills for a fraction of the cost when they go on the market next month (16 March).

This week, construction started on the 210 apartments and 30 hotel rooms in the $120 million development, with developers Asian Pacific Group announcing prices for the one bedroom apartments will start from just $270,000.

The apartments are priced to make the apartments accessible, particularly to younger buyers, and give them a unique chance to buy into the blue ribbon suburb of Walkerville. Around 90% of the 210 apartments will be priced between $270,000 and $400,000. The project will include just one exclusive penthouse level where apartments will be priced from $1.2 million.

Asian Pacific Group founder David Deague said The Watson Apartments and Hotel will help to attract younger people into Walkerville and add to the vibrancy of this attractive suburb.

“We think there’s a demand for higher density living on the city fringe as long as its well-priced, high quality and in line with the aspirations and lifestyle of local buyers ,” said Mr Deague.

“This is what we’ve aimed to create at The Watson.

“Residents at the Watson will enjoy an enviable lifestyle with full access to the Hotel facilities which will include eateries operated by renowned restaurateurs, a commercial business centre, an artist in residence studio, pool, health and recreational facilities.

“They will also have direct access to the revitalised Riverbank precinct and Adelaide Oval via the Linear Park. Residents will be able to walk or cycle into the City by hiring one of the Hotel bicycles for a nominal fee.

“Alternatively, they can hire an environmentally sensitive Smart Car from the Hotel fleet rather than taking their own car.”

The Watson is named after Tommy Watson, a senior Pitjantjatjara elder, and one of Australia’s most collectable indigenous artists.

|Mr Watson began painting in 2002 following the establishment of the Irrunytju Community Art Centre. He has since then sprung to prominence in Australia and overseas. The hotel’s foyer and rooms will feature original artworks by Tommy Watson.

The group currently owns and operates The Cullen, The Olsen and The Blackman in Melbourne. Each Art Series Hotel is designed to embody an iconic Australian artist’s individual style and characteristics.
