EOS by sky city is one of the newest and you’d have to say shiniest buildings in the Adelaide CBD, and even though when the concept plans were shown to the public, it was thought to resemble a stack of gold coins, it’s actually pretty wonderful to look at.
The building was completed in late 2020 and the gold coin stack referred to the fact that it is part of the sky city casino complex.
As well as this shiny new building, it has expensive motel accommodation but there are also quite a few venues in and around it for dining and enjoying an entertaining night out. The District is the name of the club inside which is a venue for fantastic, quality live music, and Sol bar and restaurant is a rooftop bar with indoor and outdoor spaces to gain spectacular 270 degree views of the city, coast and hills.
Underneath the building is one of those sought after Instagram shots, an interestingly lit curvy walkway which joins the river precinct and the Adelaide Railway Station.
The riverbank areas have slowly been getting facelifts over the years including the bridge over the Torrens River that leads to Adelaide Oval, and the addition of sculptural pieces like these metal orbs created by artist George Popperwell, and named Drift.
These metal orbs of looping steel are based on an oversized game of boules and are etched with messages which in the artists words ‘speak of humanity, of life’s existence, and suggest that humans are entangled in a similar game’.
