The Lower North Shore’s most sought-after address ‘The Landmark’, is the perfect launch pad to Sydney Harbour and beyond. It has set a new benchmark as one of the tallest residential towers in Sydney.
The 43-storey residential tower, comprising 429 studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments and “sky homes” with three or four bedrooms, will include a communal area on the ground floor, where access to a pool, spa and fitness facilities will be offered. The 3 levels above ground floor will accommodate commercial office space, while the basement car park will provide parking for residents and visitors alike.
A key aspect of the project was the council-owned Friedlander Place, connecting Pacific Highway through to Nicholson Street, with landscaped amenities and play areas, providing easy access through to a future bus interchange planned by Lane Cove Council. The area is lit with feature lights that blend into the building and help make this a statement piece of the area, with potential to integrate into and expand the Vivid festival up past North Sydney.
Along with public amenity, the building boasts many residential facilities including bookable entertaining spaces, cinema rooms, library, music room, a children’s play area, gym, swimming pool, yoga studio, and virtual golf rooms. All apartments can upgrade to smart control technology with dimmable lighting, tablet or phone-controlled switching and HVAC, and live data on energy usage.
Another challenge was the reticulation of the mechanical services for the retail and commercial provisions, which was achieved by the team through careful coordination with the architect.
Located in the inner-west of Melbourne and within walking distance of Melbourne’s central business district, The District Docklands is a mixed-use development which includes state-of-the-art entertainment, dining and fresh foods precincts alongside a five-star hotel, commercial offices and modern residences.
Ashe Morgan envisions the redevelopment of this waterfront location will rejuvenate this area, providing a community to this previously industrial site.
ADP are currently working on 1B-6, an office development designed by Woods Bagot and 2B–2, serviced apartments by Fender Katsalidis. ADP are proud to be collaborating with a great team; PDS Group, Generate Property Group, 4D Workshop and Slattery.

Situated within the beautiful landscape of Kangaroo Point, the Trilogy rises above its urban counterparts with three iconic towers excelling in world class design. Adding to the Brisbane city skyline, the Trilogy is an ambitious project requiring creative engineering and collaboration with the project team. Realising Arden Group and Altis Architecture’s vison of uninterrupted views over the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, South Bank, Botanic gardens and the CBD, each of the three towers in the mixed-use development has private amenity roof tops. They include entertaining areas, communal spaces, swimming pools and two interconnecting sky bridge pools on the 18th floor.
With the tallest tower 28 levels above Vulture street, creating these grand roof top spaces posed many challenges for our team. Rooftops are areas generally reserved for plant rooms, so we needed a unique plan. Leading to the creation of mid-level plant rooms, alternative mechanical systems, smart delivery of hot water and using CFD modelling to reduce the amount of duct in the basement, our team had to think creatively to solve these challenges. The display suite is open for inspection. The Trilogy is due for completion in 2022
An exemplar mixed-use community, retail and residential destination, this landmark development will integrate sustainability, health and modern design with the market’s legacy and Melbourne’s famous laneway culture.
The project comprises significant new community facilities, interconnecting laneways and a hotel and residential development adjacent to the $250 million redevelopment of the iconic market.
The site was purchased by the City of Melbourne to protect the market from inappropriate development and prevent a supermarket or large chain stores being built in direct competition to fresh food offerings of the Queen Victoria Market.
ADP are currently providing the engineering design for Stage 2 for PDG which will include 490 Build-to-rent residential apartments, a 110 room hotel and 7 retail / F&B premises on the ground level.
Located at the former Celtic Club site, the 48-level mixed use development comprising 227 apartments is a truly unique project.
The ground floor lobby will set the precedent in luxury for the whole building, with its distinct sense of arrival and premium level of security.
A key standout is the inclusion of Melbourne’s first urban forest; a three -storey light filled atrium space that will be wrapped in greenery, bringing residents close to nature without leaving home. Apartment floorplans are predominately larger than most developments and range from one, two and three bedrooms in various configurations. Penthouses will feature floor-to-ceiling windows and open plan design with spiral staircase to private rooftop terraces.
Level 5 will feature a private theatre and screening lounge, library and exclusive entertainer’s club for residents that will combine several formal and informal areas to entertain family and friends for private dinners, cocktails and functions. It will include a professional kitchen and luxurious custom-designed furniture for lounge areas.
The original heritage façade has been retained and the Celtic Club itself will also have a place in the new development, which will include a bar, restaurant and outdoor terraces.

East Brunswick Village is a mixed-use, medium-rise multi-residential, commercial and retail development in East Brunswick in Melbourne’s vibrant inner north. The village has been designed around the concept of an Urban Village with its generous open spaces and amenities welcoming use by both residents and the surrounding community.
Sustainability drivers have sat at the core of the development from project initiation. ADP have considered the environmental impact of all aspects of the development, from the materials used and the way construction waste is managed to the design of systems that optimise residents’ energy efficiencies and making alternative transportation integral to the design. Solar panels, the capture of rainwater to use onsite, and nearly one thousand bike racks are just some of the initiatives that have been put in place.
Other features include specialty shopping, a landscaped piazza, pedestrian mall, office spaces, a Coles supermarket, roof top gardens and cubby house, ample parking for vehicles and bicycles.
A real game changer in Australian real estate, Sky Garden will be the first time an air-rights transfer above a shopping mall has allowed a development of such scale. This trio of new towers reflects the change in direction of the property market towards the Asian “apartment above mall” model to deal with increasing housing demands in popular suburbs.
Sitting atop the Glen Shopping Centre, the development is being marketed at families, offering a 4,000sqm park and open space as well as outdoor dining and entertainment amenities.
The Docklands is a mixed-use development comprising of a Marriott hotel offering 200 premium hotel rooms and 110 contemporary residences across 16 levels.
The Marriott is a landmark for Melbourne and international tourism and the five – star hotel will be Marriott International’s first new-build hotel in Australia in 20 years.
A visionary mixed-use development showcasing Marriott brands’ innovation, approach to functionality and sophisticated style, the hotel will include an open air public infinity pool on the rooftop which is also complemented by a world-class bar and dining facilities overlooking the CBD and the harbour.
A complex architectural design, the towers cantilever over the existing District Docklands retail precinct with an integrated, automated car parking system for the apartments. Our team worked in close collaboration with project stakeholders to minimise the services impact, achieving the required project outcomes through clever planning and design .
With the creation of this new park-side community on this inner-city former industrial site, a whole new way of urban living is being realized. The development which is surrounded by the 44-hectare Sydney Park in Alexandria will provide the opportunity for residents to live at one with nature whilst enjoying the amenities and convenience of Sydney’s inner-city lifestyle.
The development will consist of 400 apartments across eight six-storey buildings enveloped on three sides by Sydney Park. With a new public plaza connected to the park, the development will embody its natural surrounds of natural light, fresh air and a rich ecology through clever design and open spaces.
A key driver for the rezoning of the site is the need to mitigate the noise associated with the Euston Road traffic to a level that is adequate for residential living. The design team will balance the conflicting requirements of acoustic attenuation and natural ventilation by strategically placing openings in the façade to allow airflow into the apartments to maintain a high quality indoor environment whilst restricting noise into the apartments. This will be achieved by using CFD modelling.
The proposed $750m development aims to contribute to the revitalisation of Albion, and will position the site as a community hub that provides new residential accommodation, office space, dining and shopping facilities, including $28.7m of upgraded transport facilities and public access to the Albion train station. These improvements would complement planning currently underway by Queensland Rail for an upcoming accessibility upgrade of Albion train station which could include new platform access with lifts, raised platform sections for improved access and other accessibility features such as hearing aid loop, signage and tactile flooring surfaces.
Design options are currently being worked through to be submitted to Brisbane City Council as part of standard development application processes. Designs put forward by the team will endeavour to respect Albion’s surrounds and support State Government planning objectives for transit-oriented developments including:
- Improved accessibility to the train station
- A mix of residential, retail, commercial and community uses
- High quality public spaces and streets, which are pedestrian and cyclist friendly
To date the ADP team have been working on Stage 1 of the project.
