About the project

The redevelopment of the former Kaufland site on Churchill Road at Prospect will deliver much needed housing at a price point rarely seen within seven kilometres of the city.

As the master developer, Renewal SA will partner with experienced private developers and builders to create 180 new homes, with a minimum of 55% offered as affordable housing. This is almost four times the statutory 15% obligation required under the Planning and Development Code.

In activating the site, Renewal SA will provide much-needed public open space and extensive tree planting. We have been engaging the community on views and ideas about the open space at Prospect as part of our master planning process.



The 2.36-hectare Prospect site has sat unutilised for many years despite its prime position along the Churchill Road Development Corridor.

The site was purchased by Renewal SA in late 2020 as part of a two-site deal with former retailer Kaufland Australia, which also included the former Le Cornu site at Forestville.

The Prospect project will generate an average of 80 full-time equivalents (FTEs) jobs annually, peaking at 144 FTEs per annum midway through the project.

A minimum of 55% of the dwellings created will qualify for the state government's affordable housing program HomeSeeker SA. Initiatives such as HomeStart’s shared equity product will be utilised to enable townhouses to qualify as affordable housing.

Stakeholders and community

Renewal SA is committed to ensuring that key stakeholders, including the community, are engaged as part of the planning process.

In May 2022 Renewal SA conducted online community engagement for the Prospect open space to help us understand the community’s current and desired use of open space. Following this engagement, three landscape concept plans for the reserve areas were developed for community feedback, along with inviting feedback on the two smaller reserves and the proposed plantings.

The community was invited to view the public open space design options and share their thoughts at two community drop-in sessions in August 2022 as well as online.

The engagement reports summarising the feedback from both stages of the public engagement, which includes engagement with young people to gain their perspective, can be downloaded from the Resources section below.

If you have any queries regarding the community engagement for the Prospect development, please contact the Renewal SA Engagement Team on 8207 1300 or email [email protected]
