Nestled amongst the Adelaide Park Lands, Lot Fourteen is emerging as a visionary neighbourhood of global innovation, entrepreneurship, research collaboration, cultural activity, bold ideas and creative thinking. The former Royal Adelaide Hospital site is being transformed to create high-value jobs across technology driven industries and become the future location of the Entrepreneur and Innovation Centre and Aboriginal Art and Cultures Centre.
This walking tour will take delegates through the Lot Fourteen site and provide historical context, details of the current planning and construction process and insight to the future vision. This tour will be hosted by Renewal SA and include updates from Renewal SA and the City of Adelaide.
SA Young Planners: The “Tell All” Tale of Adelaide’s Laneway & Riverfront Transformation
Tuesday 25 May 2021
Networking to follow at a location to be confirmed
Join Urban Futurist and former Adelaide Lord Mayor, Stephen Yarwood, for a “behind the scenes walking tour” from the Adelaide Central Market to the River Torrens waterfront.
Today, many of Adelaide’s laneways have been transformed and are becoming the centre of the city, serving as important pedestrian links and meeting places. Similarly, the Torrens Riverfront is a place to be, with new developments and bars popping up overlooking the beautiful River Torrens and Adelaide Oval.
How did this happen and what went on behind the scenes? There are some great stories to tell, some surprising spaces to discover and there’ll be plenty of time to ask questions and network. Get social and join the physically distanced cheeky chinwag tour that will explore Adelaide’s renaissance period secrets.

As other transport options drop away walking can help older people stay connected and engaged. Join the Heart Foundation as they undertake a practical application of the Healthy Active Ageing checklist, to observe and explore features within the built environment that aid or hinder a city to be age friendly.
