A $200 million dollar building which will be South Australia’s tallest has begun construction.

At 132 metres high and with 40 levels, the Realm Adelaide apartment tower will be built in Adelaide CBD’s east end and create 1800 jobs through its build, South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill said.

“Adelaide’s East End is entering an exciting new era; Realm Adelaide will become a focal point, towering above the city,” Mr Weatherill said.

The Lord Mayor of Adelaide Martin Haese says the project supports the council’s target to have 50,000 residents living in the CBD by 2040.
