Amongst the best of Adelaide

Adelaide Oval

The historic 53,500-seat Adelaide Oval is one of the most revered cricket grounds in the world and also plays host to football, soccer and concerts. The oval’s redevelopment in 2014 was awarded the highest accolade for architecture in Australia.

Health & Research Precinct

Adelaide's new hospital (or RAH as it is commonly known) is the single largest infrastructure project in the state's history and incorporates cutting-edge health care. The adjacent SAHMRI is a flagship world-class health and medical research facility.

Central Market

The Central Market is one of Australia's finest fresh produce markets and a must-stop place to shop for residents and visitors alike. A magnet for food lovers, its vibrant atmosphere is also responsible for attracting more than eight million visitors a year.

Restaurant, Café & Bar Scene

Adelaide is fast becoming a serious culinary hotspot, with everything from casual cafes and bistros to swish high-end eateries. This part of the city also houses some of the best small bar venues in the square mile, for relaxed social gatherings, an after-work drink or sustenance before a show.

Riverbank Precinct

The River Torrens is the scenic backdrop for this entertainment and hospitality strip, home to the Convention Centre, Festival Centre, SkyCity Casino and a cluster of hotels. The precinct links to the Adelaide Oval via a footbridge spanning the River Torrens.

North Terrace Cultural Boulevard

Adelaide's famed cultural and educational places can be found dotted along this classic 19th century leafy boulevard, with its lineup of Parliament House Government House, State Library, Art Gallery, Museum, University of Adelaide and Botanic Gardens.

Rundle Mall

Rundle Mall starts at the Beehive Corner, with its Gothic heritage building. Rundle Mall is Adelaide’s main shopping promenade, a long pedestrian artery and home to the city's department stores. Specialist and funky designer shops, restaurants and bars continue east on Rundle Street.

Prestige building

An address in the centre of the city is one thing. Above the Sofitel is something else again. The name alone says prestige, with a touch of glamour and buzz about it. And by buying an apartment in a building shared by a five-star hotel you can indulge in some hotel extravagances, should you wish. The idea: to add a whole new dimension to staying at home.

Construction Start Announced

Mar 7, 2018

Construction of Adelaide's most prestigious building - the 33-storey glass tower which will be home to the new Sofitel Adelaide and the luxury Luminesque apartments - will commence in May.

Daniel Palumbo, Managing Director of Palumbo Group, was joined by the Chief Operating Officer of AccorHotels Pacific, Simon McGrath, and the SA Tourism Minister, The Hon Leon Bignell MP, to make the announcement from the Luminesque display centre on Currie Street on Wednesday.

The announcement marks a huge milestone for the project, representing the culmination of several years of work with one of the world's leading hotel brands to create what will undisputedly be Adelaide's premier hotel.

Residential apartments

The building also provides residents the unique opportunity to call this building home, offering just 70 luxury apartments on the top eight levels. 80% of the apartments have been sold with the vast majority of these sold to local owner occupiers who are seeking a luxury, low maintenance but high amenity lifestyle with breath-taking uninterrupted views.

Our onsite display centre will remain open daily 10am-4pm until demolition commences in May, so please visit to find out more.

Luminesque – Buyer Testimonials

Aug 17, 2017

My husband and I have taken the leap into buying an apartment in the city of Adelaide. This decision has not been taken lightly as we have been exploring differing opportunities over the past few years, however there has been no project to date that has caught our eye enough for us to take the step. Step forward Luminesque...

Luminesque stands out for layout, finishings and of course the views; it is the best we have seen in recent years. Also the benefit of having the Sofitel as our co-resident adds to the grandeur and sophistication that this building has to offer.

The sales team are fabulous and are over all the details. The display room on Currie Street is well placed to enable you to get a great idea of what the final product will be, including those fabulous views!

We really look forward to making Adelaide city and Luminesque our home.

S.R, T.R, Tranmere, Adelaide

We have just signed up for an apartment at Luminesque. The idea of living so high on top of a five star hotel was immediately attractive to us and the area promises to be vibrant with restaurants, the Festival Theatre, Adelaide Oval, the market and shopping all within easy walking distance.

We were impressed with the quality and size of the apartments. Sam was able to answer all our questions and his professional, unhurried approach made us feel comfortable and unpressured. The whole purchasing experience was painless and we are looking forward to staying in our fabulous new eerie.

D.P & S.F, Joslin

We are thrilled to be taking this opportunity to be part of such a unique project and are looking forward to enjoying some of the best views Adelaide has to offer.  We take comfort in knowing the builder is proudly South Australian and extremely reputable in this construction space. Thanks Sam for presenting the apartments so well and making our decision so easy.

Luminesque – Buyer Testimonials

Feb 15, 2017

Luminesque has established itself as the project of choice for people looking for exceptional quality at a fair price. See what some of our buyers have had to say about the project.

My wife and I are US citizens and have decided to live most of the year in Adelaide - our favourite spot to retire, especially the CBD with its outstanding walkability.

Being foreigners we can only buy new construction and so began exploring all the various projects around.  It did not take long to see that Luminesque stood out among the rest due to its high quality (having Sofitel as partner speaks volumes) and amazing value (not as dear per sqm of interior space as most of the others).

The staff at Luminesque did not bother us with unnecessary sales calls nor offer dodgy inducements like some of the projects - 'a diamond if you sign!' - and consistently stood for quality and value.  They proved helpful in answering any concern that we posed and assisted us in completing the FIRB application required of foreigners.  

All in all, Sam and Phi and other Luminesque staff have proven to be paragons of professionalism, and my wife and I are excited about buying into such a high quality project.

R.W & C.D, Albuquerque, USA

After spending nearly a year searching for the right development in Adelaide, a search looking for the one that would speak to us, one that would jump out from the crowd and tick off all the boxes on our demanding and fussy list we were delighted to finally settle on Luminesque as our future home.

The quality build, generous size, a well thought out layout and an attention to detail missing in most other city developments we looked at convinced us that Luminesque was the one for us.

The straight forward marketing approach and an ability to view a wonderful display unit where all of our questions and queries could be answered by Sam and his team made the purchasing of our unit in Luminesque a stress-free situation for us and one that we would not hesitate to recommend.

R.D & A.L, Adelaide

My wife and I have invested in the Luminesque development as first time apartment owner/occupiers as a lifestyle choice. We were impressed and attracted to the high class quality of the fixtures and fittings proposed as well as the impressive design of the building with the promised high end energy efficient properties. To live in a vibrant area of the city with close and easy access to the heart of Adelaide and the many attractions this offers will be exciting.

During the process of making our decision to purchase we were very comfortable dealing with the marketing staff who were very helpful, patient and professional in answering the many questions we had without making us feel under pressure.

We are looking forward very much to moving into our new apartment in late 2019. The views will be amazing!

Anon, Croydon

After weeks of looking at units we settled on the Luminesque project because of location, quality fittings and finish and value for money - all on top of a 5-star hotel. We can't wait to move in.

B.S & P.S, Beachport

I was first made aware of Luminesque through a friend – she told me that Palumbo, the developer of East Park had a new project in the Adelaide CBD. I was immediately interested.

Luminesque offered everything I was looking for - excellent location, high quality fixtures and fittings and well-designed floor-plan layouts. The sales process was simple and Sam was a pleasure to deal with. The display centre is well designed and was very impressive.

I look forward to the uninterrupted views from my apartment in 2019!

A.S, Kurralta Park

We were attracted to the design and location of Luminesque and continued to be surprised by the thoughtfulness and liveability of the entire project when visiting the display centre.

The sales team were a delight to interact with and we are thrilled with our purchase.

G.F & H.F, Sheidow Park
