Barbaro Builders and Developers lodged plans for the 29m-high building, on the corner of Metro Parade and Main St, with Salisbury Council this month.
The project is expected to be worth about $30 million and would include 63 apartments, four penthouses, five office spaces and seven restaurants or shops. The two and three bedroom apartments would and range in price from $300,000 to $380,000.
The penthouses would cost about $1 million each.
Construction is planned to start as soon as possible, subject to building approval.
This will provide a fantastic addition to the activity in Mawson Lakes, with 150 jobs would be created during construction and many more with the take up of the commercial space. The companyâ€™s managing director, Frank Barbaro Â said â€œthe project, known as Emperor Living, was designed to feel like a five-star hotel. Youâ€™ll have clear views of the hills and coast, cafes and restaurants to visit down stairs and access to parks and public transport.â€
Salisbury Mayor Gillian Aldridge said the plans looked exciting and, if approved, would give a boost to the northern suburbs.
â€œIt will create jobs, be classy and enhance an already great area in Mawson Lakes,â€ Ms Aldridge said.
â€œIâ€™m pretty excited by it, the area has nothing like it at the present time.â€
