Accor Pacific chief operating officer Simon McGrath welcomed the construction milestone.

“Sofitel Adelaide will be a truly world-class asset – exuding a refined and understated sense of modern luxury with a touch of Sofitel’s renowned French decadence,” he said.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled that we’ve reached this pinnacle construction milestone.”

The construction of the hotel is expected to be complete in December.
