We are creating a new neighbourhood on the site of the former Royal Adelaide Hospital, now known as Lot Fourteen.

Located amongst the cultural treasures of North Terrace and covering approximately seven hectares on the north-eastern edge of the city of Adelaide, Lot Fourteen is the site of the former Royal Adelaide Hospital. The site’s primary frontage is on North Terrace with further street frontage on leafy Frome Road. Sharing its eastern boundary with Adelaide Botanic Garden and situated only a stone’s throw from some of the best restaurants, bars and shopping in the city, this place is one the most exciting urban redevelopments in the world.

Lot Fourteen is becoming Australia’s first creation and innovation neighbourhood; a place where highly skilled and agile talent will thrive. Our future generations can become part of a neighbourhood that supports them to launch new ventures that leverage the deep technologies of the twenty-first century.

As such, the key element of Lot Fourteen will be the new start-up hub-space catering for our future industries that will span across seven heritage and historic buildings, now being repurposed.

These buildings will bring together the entire entrepreneurial ecosystem including start-ups working to develop new ideas or products, researchers and laboratories to test their concepts; incubators that provide start-ups with catalyst tools, mentoring programs and logistical support; and business advisers and investors including angel and venture capital firms to help take ideas to the global market.

The site is becoming an ideal environment for entrepreneurs to partner with industry, researchers, mentors and investors to help grow their start-up or existing businesses and is bringing together members of the entrepreneurial ecosystem including start-ups, mentors, corporations, researchers and investors with creatives to share spaces, experiences and most of all, talent.

When fully established in the next five years, thousands of people will work and stay here, creating a centre of gravity for the Adelaide start-up community.
