The plan

The Felixstow Neighbourhood Renewal Project will replace ageing South Australian Housing Trust homes with new homes, create better quality social housing, increase housing choice and affordability, and create jobs.

The Felixstow Neighbourhood Renewal Project area consists of a 9.3 hectare site, situated six kilometres from the city and bounded by Briar Road, Langman Grove, Shirley, Redden, Fraser, Reid and Thrower Avenues.

The project will involve a staged redevelopment or refurbishment of 86 South Australian Housing Trust properties and increase the total number of homes in the area from 100 to around 190-200, of which 60-70 will be Housing Trust homes. The remaining homes will be sold privately. Final numbers may vary as renewal plans are fine tuned.

No apartment buildings are proposed and most new homes will be one- and two-storey.

An independent traffic assessment concluded that there will be minimal impact on existing conditions.

Renewal SA will partner with City of Norwood Payneham St Peters council to upgrade and improve the public realm and infrastructure.

Project plan

  • Create a vibrant mixed and balanced community by reducing the public housing concentration
  • Provide a range of housing types to meet varied lifestyle needs and budgets primarily comprising one- and two-storey homes
  • Deliver new social housing and innovative small lot housing to achieve a range of housing styles for differing lifestyle needs including affordable housing choices

Renewal outcomes

  • Improve the quality of public housing
  • Focus housing growth in established suburbs, close to transport, and other services and facilities
  • Improve access to affordable housing through purchase and rental
  • Improve the aesthetics and amenity of streets and open space
  • Create jobs for a range of businesses in the building and constructions industries and supporting services.
