Master plan

Location

Nestled on the edge of the river, opposite the parklands in Adelaide’s prized inner east, Botaniq presents the ultimate city retreat with just the right mix of hustle and bustle, and peace and quiet.

Located where Hackney Road meets Bertram Street and Richmond Street, the redevelopment of the heritage-listed Hackney Hotel site is set to create a locally crafted lifestyle precinct without peer.

With the National Wine Centre and Adelaide Botanic Garden as neighbours, residents are within a short cycle or leisurely meander from the cultural heart of the city on North Terrace and the vibrant retail and entertainment hub on Rundle Street and East Terrace.

Future benefits include significant infrastructure projects underway in the vicinity, including the O-Bahn extension on Hackney Road, as well as Lot Fourteen – which will redefine the old Royal Adelaide Hospital site on North Terrace as Australia’s first innovation district.

Nature

Set to transform the everyday experience of the lucky few who call Botaniq home, residents will own a piece of a perfect urban sanctuary surrounded by nature. The River Torrens and Linear Park are a mere one minute walk away, with Botanic Park directly opposite.

Wander down Plane Tree Drive and reach the redeveloped Adelaide Zoo in under ten minutes. Cross through the gates of Adelaide Botanic Garden in less than twelve minutes – giving residents access to the biggest backyard imaginable – 51 hectares to be exact.

World-renowned and locally adored, Adelaide Botanic Garden is an oasis of native flora, majestic trees and stunning heritage to explore. A partnership in the making is set to provide residents with exclusive membership benefits – apt considering Botaniq’s nod to its namesake.

Education

Surrounded by some of the best schools and educational institutions that Adelaide has to offer, Botaniq is just a six minute walk from St Peter’s College, with the apartments and sky lofts to the east overlooking the beautiful school grounds.

Further highlights include the brand new Adelaide Botanic High School which is a five minute drive away or a fifteen minute walk from home through the parklands. Prince Alfred College is also within a short four minute drive or seven minute cycle. And Wilderness School for girls is just a five minute drive away.

Not so much further afield are the prestigious campuses of the University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia – giving the next generation an opportunity to follow in the footsteps of Nobel Laureates and Rhodes Scholars.

Lifestyle

Adelaide is a city filled with culinary delight and life at Botaniq ensures seamless connection to the best of it all. The East End is home to two of Australia’s finest restaurants, Orana and Africola – walk to either in under 20 minutes.

Grab a coffee from any one of thirteen cafes on Rundle Street, including firm favourites Penny University and Hey Jupiter, or a casual bite from popular eateries like Hello Harry, Lemongrass and Sicily Pizzeria.

Indulge in a bit of retail therapy at Saba, Gorman, Mimco and more. Watch a movie at Palace Nova, enjoy date nights at Golden Boy, catch ups with tapas and cocktails at Mothervine, sample the broad selection of wine and soak up the atmosphere at East End Cellars.

Culture

In February and March, the East End comes alive for the much-celebrated Adelaide Fringe and Adelaide Festival, drawing crowds from all over the country and beyond for fun and festivities. WOMADelaide music festival takes place in Botanic Park, offering the perfect singles, couples or family experience.

By living minutes from Adelaide’s cultural boulevard on North Terrace, residents can explore the arts to their heart’s content, with the Art Gallery of South Australia, the Migration Museum, the State Library, the SA Museum and Aboriginal Art Gallery perfectly placed within a leisurely ramble from home.

A little further down, exciting changes are underway at the Adelaide Festival Centre with Sky City currently under development and various improvements being made to the Adelaide Riverbank walkway over the River Torrens, Adelaide Casino set above the grand Adelaide Railway Station.

Not to mention the nearby, world-famous Adelaide Oval which offers a variety of footy, cricket and music performances from globally-recognised stars all year round.
