How to manage a multi-storey apartment in Adelaide’s CBD
A multi-tenant apartment is a relatively new concept in the Australian capital, but the city is making the process easy.

The multi-level apartment concept is the latest innovation in the city’s ongoing battle against the scourge of gentrification, according to an official statement from the city.
“For over 40 years, the City of Adelaide has been engaged in a battle against gentrification to preserve affordable housing for all,” the statement reads.
“[The multi floor building] will also provide the opportunity for residents to work, play and socialise, which will have a positive impact on the city centre.”
The city has been battling the problem for more than a decade.
In October 2016, the city launched the RSLI (Residential Livability Improvement Fund) to help people and businesses who were unable to afford new construction with affordable housing.
Since then, more than $40 million has been put towards affordable housing in the area, including more than half of the total funding for the RCLR (Resident Livability Resource Centre).
The City of South Australia is planning to build about 300 affordable rental units in the CBD, which are currently held by private developers.
A new apartment complex is currently under construction in the inner west of the city, which could be a model for other city areas.
According to the city website, the multi-floor apartment is “designed to give residents and businesses a more spacious living environment, provide them with convenient access to shops, dining and recreation, and to create an affordable and livable home for themselves and their families”.
The project is currently in the planning stage and the project has already been approved by the South Australian Government.
There are currently about 200 apartments in the RGLA, and the new apartment complexes will increase the number of units in Adelaide by 1,200.
This is an example of a city-wide initiative which is a result of the RRLI and the recent Government’s housing affordability program, said Adelaide city council leader Dr Andrew McAlpine.
While the City Council will be involved in the design, it is a collaborative effort between the council, the developer, the developers and the local community.
I think that is really great that the developers are getting involved and are able to bring in this new investment, said McAlp.
But for now, the RFLI is focused on ensuring that all the existing units are affordable and providing an inclusive and safe environment for residents and residents of the area,” he said.
McAlpine said the city will continue to work with developers to ensure the apartments are affordable.”
It’s about affordability and accessibility, and I think that’s the most important aspect,” he told the ABC.
Council to make $40m in rental subsidy payments in the next financial yearThe city’s planning team is also working with the local development authority, which is the state’s development authority.
As a result, the council will make $20 million in rental subsidies in the coming financial year.
Adelaide is also partnering with the city to help with the $15 million rental subsidy program.
If approved by local council, this will see the city pay the cost of the rental subsidies for tenants of rental units up to $25,000, including any costs associated with obtaining the apartment.
It will also make a $5 million payment for the rental subsidy payment program for those with no rent.
Other key projects that are under consideration include a multi unit apartment in the Yarra Valley, a three-storeys apartment complex in the Adelaide CBD and a five-storeyn apartment complex on the South Coast.
