South Australian Deputy Premier John Rau and Martin Haese – Lord Mayor of Adelaide were on hand to officially break ground on Kodo. Along with Jo Chapley – ALP Candidate for Adelaide, Martin Monro – Managing Director Watpac, industry guests and members of the Kodo project team joined Flagship as construction officially commences.
Steve Wise, CEO of Flagship, said the delivery of Kodo will add further vibrancy to the city CBD and Victoria Square precinct.
“We’ve always said that Kodo will become an iconic feature on the Adelaide skyline, and now it’s time to deliver,” said Mr Wise, who anticipates that construction will be complete and ready for people to move in by the end of next year.
“Having assembled an outstanding project team which has put in an enormous amount of work, it’s great to reach this point of the project and see the builders on site and construction underway.
“Our vision for Kodo is about to become reality, which is not only great news for our buyers, but a real vote of confidence in the broader Adelaide economy, including an estimated 250 local jobs during the construction period.”
