Projects putting people first
Renewal SA is helping Adelaide to set the pace for urban renewal with projects including Bowden, Tonsley and Lot Fourteen that put people first — and meet the demand for integrated environments that combine work, life and play.
Lot Fourteen to accelerate startups
Adelaide is another step closer to becoming the startup capital of Australia, with Premier Steven Marshall’s announcement of Stone & Chalk as the operator and anchor tenant for a 650-workspace hub at the Lot Fourteen neighbourhood.
A Lot of neighbourhood vibe
The synergy of Lot Fourteen in the CBD is not only bringing the city into focus globally, but also shifting how Adelaide views itself. And by summer 2019/20, it’s estimated that more than 1,000 people will work at Lot Fourteen. So what is it like to work in the innovation and ideas neighbourhood?
Lot Fourteen ecosystem grows with new future industries
Forward-thinking businesses Presagen, Life Whisperer, Defence Teaming Centre, Convergen, JumpgateVR and Artisan Post Group will continue their important work in artificial intelligence, defence, media and creative industries at Lot Fourteen.
Recycling on a major (hospital) scale
How do you recycle something as big and complex as a major public hospital? We explored this question with South Australian school children who took part in a major World Environment Day event at Adelaide Botanic Garden, next to Lot Fourteen.
OZ Minerals collaboration unlocks value for mining, renewable energy
Tonsley Innovation District is proud to be part of a new collaboration with OZ Minerals to develop opportunities to integrate renewable energy systems on mining sites and optimise electrical and fuel demand.
Join Australia’s most awarded innovation district
A large commercial tenancy within the Administration Building at Tonsley is now available for lease. This is an excellent opportunity for companies in Tonsley’s focus sectors to be amongst organisations well-known for innovation and success.
Major gateway land for sale at Port
Renewal SA is seeking proposals to transform the Port Approach North Precinct into a light industrial, commercial or mixed-use development. The land offers a strategic location with access to key transport routes and close proximity to defence industries. This opportunity closes on 11 July 2019.
Bowden is a place where the good old days are back
The new, lively neighbourhood is fast becoming a mecca for residents like Deborah Schofield, who want to live in a friendly, well-resourced community whilst at home, but have all of the benefits of ‘lock-up and leave’ for when they’re not.
flowerbar blossoms in the Adelaide Railway Station
Rail commuters noticed a splash of colour inside the Adelaide Railway Station following the launch of flowerbar last month — in time for Mother’s Day. The new pop-up florist is operated by Youth Inc. students.
Train commuters get on board with Platform 10
Conveniently located in an original 1920s wooden booth below the station’s iconic clock face, station visitors, commuters and city workers have been embracing Platform 10’s funky vibe, gourmet food, freshly pressed juices and barista-made coffees.
Building great communities is about people, not only bricks and mortar
It’s fantastic to see new businesses opening up, but new shops, gardens, parks and homes aren’t constructed without the people to build them and they certainly don’t operate themselves.
Growing employment avenues
Jamie, Harrison and Augustin love learning the ropes of garden and grounds maintenance from supervisor Kane Richards. Their employer yourtown has signed a one-year service agreement to maintain the grounds at Lot Fourteen, and the trio is the first to reap the benefits.
Tonsley tour sparks curiosity in young students
Students from Coorara Primary School spent a day at Tonsley Innovation District exploring, making, questioning and playing — opening their eyes and imaginations to the exciting and innovative careers available to them at home in South Australia.
Kickstart a career through the Works Program
Know someone who might like a career in the signs and graphics industry, or early childhood education? Registrations are open for two new pre-employment programs, supported by Renewal SA’s Works Program. Applications close from 19 July 2019.
Young business talent time
Congratulations to this year’s winners of InDaily’s 40 Under 40 awards, which recognises South Australia’s best young and emerging business leaders. As a major sponsor, Renewal SA was pleased to present the inaugural Inspiring Future Collaboration Award to high-achieving entrepreneur, producer and mathematician Anton Andreacchio.
