A consortium – led by South Australian independent retail group Commercial Retail Group (owners and operators of Frewville and Pasadena Foodland) with national property developer Peet Limited and local developer Buildtec will bring this long-dormant site back to life after being named the successful developers.
The former Le Cornu site at Forestville will be transformed into a dynamic food-orientated retail and residential community complete with South Australia’s first rooftop urban farm, where fresh local produce will be used to bring residents and visitors together in a celebration of community.
Known as Locale, the $250 million project will deliver one of the most innovative masterplans created in Adelaide, combining a bustling market square with retail and services, outdoor dining and play spaces, a Green Urban School, short-stay accommodation and apartment and townhouse living. The result – a new heart for the city’s south-west corner.
As part of the bold reimagining of this iconic city-fringe parcel, the development’s Anzac Highway frontage will be fully activated to serve as a visual gateway to the precinct, while Leader Street and Maple Avenue will play key roles in both connectivity and access and will come alive with residential and retail opportunities.
Renewal SA is committed to ensuring that key stakeholders, including the community, are engaged as part of the planning process.
Renewal SA is keen to understand the community’s connection to and interest in the area and hear concerns regarding the redevelopment. Community members were invited to share their thoughts online at mysocialpinpoint. between July 23 – August 23 2021.

The consortium, led by Commercial Retail Group, will commence further consultation of their plans in October 2022.
