The transformation underway in the Adelaide CBD is the result of policy, legislation, investment and place making coming together over five years. The outcome is changing the lives of thousands of South Australians.
Since April 2013, with the aid of a case management service, 70 new businesses have opened, equating to over $70 million in capital investment and over 800 new jobs. Peel Street has been transformed from a primarily vacant through road to Adelaide’s hottest new ‘eat street’, with twelve small venues and a thirteenth to open before the end of 2017.
In 2016, the state government embarked on the $15 million Market to Riverbank project with the City of Adelaide to reinvigorate the network of small streets and laneways between the Adelaide Central Market and the Adelaide Riverbank.
