On a site previously earmarked for a six-storey hotel and apartment block, PASA Building has been engaged to construct a supermarket and retail shops on what was the old Transforma site on the corner of Goodwood Rd and Young St, opposite the Adelaide Showgrounds.
The development will comprise a shop suitable for use as a supermarket and separate retail tenancy suitable for use as a pharmacy, including on-site car parking for 113 vehicles. Construction will make use of an existing structure on-site with new buildings constructed from pre-cast concrete panels painted in two different tones of grey to create visual interest on these facades.
The proposed supermarket building will incorporate a two-metre-high parapet entry statement located at the northwestern corner of the site. The western elevation of the building to Goodwood Road will contain a feature graphic “GDWD” to break up the mass of the façade, together with additional graphics detailing the name and type of retailers present.
Construction work commenced in early 2017 and is expected to take approximately 9 months to complete.
