About the project

Lightsview – a joint venture between Renewal SA and Peet Group (formerly CIC Australia) – is testament to what can be achieved through industry partnerships where a shared vision is matched by a commitment to excellence.

The 100-hectare project was conceived to blend fresh architectural design with public open spaces, while an innovative approach to zoning enabled the project to provide the widest range of housing and land options of any Adelaide suburb.

Lightsview, which was completed in 2022, has won a range of awards including being recognised as the Best Master Planned Development in Australia and winning the coveted overall President’s Award at the Urban Development Institute of Australia’s National Awards in 2014. It also won the 2016 UDIA SA Award for Excellence in the category of Medium Density Housing.

Now home to more than 5,000 residents, Lightsview is a shining example of innovative inner- city infill land development.

Objectives and outcomes

Lightsview is characterised by fresh architectural design and an appealing and diverse streetscape.

High quality and varied public open spaces and wide streets with footpaths create a sense of space for residents to enjoy outside of their own homes, while the guiding design principles at Lightsview required homes to be oriented for maximum winter warmth and summer shade.

A key innovation at Lightsview was the introduction of zoning to allow small-lot, higher-density residential development. Because of this, Lightsview was able to provide the widest range of housing and land options of any Adelaide suburb.

Every dwelling is located within 300 metres of a high quality landscaped park while bus routes have been integrated into the development to encourage residents’ use of public transport.

Lightsview exceeded the state government’s 15% affordable housing requirement with a range of well-planned and appealing homes.
