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, nestled against the Adelaide Botanic Garden and a stone’s throw from some of the best restaurants, bars and shopping in the city, this place is one of the most exciting urban redevelopments in the world.

The seven-hectare neighbourhood 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.

Lot Fourteen is a creation and innovation neighbourhood that is all about nurturing talent and driving jobs for our children in some of the world’s fastest growing industries like artificial intelligence, cyber security, smart sensor networks, robotics, big data, defence and space technologies, plus media and creative industries.

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.

Lot Fourteen is a place where highly skilled and agile talent will thrive.

Master Plan + Innovation Framework

The site

The former Royal Adelaide Hospital site covers approximately seven hectares on the north-eastern edge of the city of Adelaide. Its primary frontage is on North Terrace with further street frontage on leafy Frome Road and it shares its eastern boundary with Adelaide Botanic Garden.

Project management

Renewal SA is managing all stages of the site’s development including:

  • Site management and operation
  • Tenant attraction and partnerships
  • Curated site activation
  • Demolition of obsolete buildings
  • Delivery of new infrastructure, public realm, building refurbishments and new builds.

Demolition and redevelopment

Join our neighbourhood

When fully established in the next five years, several thousand people will work and stay at Lot Fourteen, creating a centre of gravity for the Adelaide start-up community.

Seven heritage and historic buildings are being retained and repurposed, offering great opportunities for activations, short- and long-term tenancies and redevelopment.

These buildings are bringing 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.

A curated program will bring like-minded people together in carefully designed spaces.

Our technology strategy will ensure the ecosystem is supported by site-wide high speed internet connections through GigCity Adelaide (and public and shared area advanced wi-fi capabilities.

Each building will have spaces for shared work and socialising and others for working quietly. Across the site, we also provide event spaces, a 220-seat lecture theatre, the Vintage Boardroom, meeting rooms, health and wellness facilities, and food and beverage offerings, in recognition of the fact that the most attractive environments for talented people from around the world cater for work, life and play.
