I think this sort of thing is actually good for Adelaide, might wake it up out of its slumber.

Adelaide's 25-storey city office tower now set to be approved ... 5890500704

PLANS for a 25-storey King William St office tower rejected by Adelaide City Council as too tall are set to be approved by the state's top development authority.

The proposed $17 million, 86m tower would be constructed next to the Pirie St tram stop and would become the city's sixth-tallest building.

It has been recommended for approval in a report to be tabled at a Development Assessment Commission meeting today. The council's Development Assessment Panel and the state DAC previously clashed over the Grote St Freedom Apartments and a 13-storey Light Square office block. DAC meetings are closed to the public and a council code of conduct bars sitting DAP members from speaking about developments outside of meetings.

Councillor and former DAP member Sandy Wilkinson told The Advertiser the DAC seldom denied a development application.

"It makes a mockery of the planning process," he said.
