The Forestville site presents a significant infill opportunity on the fringe of the city. We are currently seeking a development partner to deliver a medium-to-high density, mixed-use urban community.
Forestville—the former site of Le Cornu furniture warehouse—offers one of the last remaining large, vacant city fringe sites, providing one of the most significant mixed-use redevelopment opportunities for the inner suburbs of Adelaide.
The vision for the Forestville site is the creation of an innovative, sustainable and connected residential and mixed-use development, comprising medium to high density dwellings, retail/commercial opportunities, affordable housing, high quality integrated public open space(s) and connectivity with adjacent commercial and residential areas.
Located alongside Anzac Highway and only a short distance to Adelaide’s prized Park Lands and key facilities such as Richmond Primary School, Unley Swimming Centre, Ashford Hospital and Glenelg Beach, the site has much to offer both residents and workers.
The planning and design of the site will aim to meet the needs of the South Australian community now and into the future.

Renewal SA is committed to ensuring that key stakeholders, including the community, are engaged as part of the planning process.
The developer will partner with Renewal SA to engage with key stakeholders and the broader community on the draft master plan. Details on when and how that will occur will be provided once the developer is appointed.
During the EOI process Renewal SA will start engaging key stakeholders, including the neighbouring community. We are keen to learn about and understand the community’s connection to and interest in the area and to address any concerns regarding the Forestville development, while introducing the Renewal SA team.
