1.1 Edwardstown District

The Southern Adelaide Economic Development Board has highlighted Edwardstown as a priority precinct.

The opportunity is to transform the Edwardstown District into a vibrant employment zone.

Edwardstown district, strategically located within 8km from the CBD and well serviced by electrified rail and the North-South Corridor, is a key growth precinct for inner Southern Adelaide. 

It has long served as a key employment generator for the region. Further investment is now required to deliver a mixed-use employment precinct with advanced manufacturers, export focused businesses, integrated creative industry and housing diversity to contribute to a vibrant place to live and work.

Current investment:

  • $8M Federal Government and Council funded Edwardstown Oval Redevelopment delivering:
  • ​An integrated sports and community facility injecting
  • $2.11 m into the economy and creating over 56 jobs
  • A vocational training facility with up to 325 job outcomes
  • $40M Castle Plaza retail redevelopment to expand the shopping centre and create a high street with active frontages at street level

Further investment is required to unleash the full potential of the district:

  • redesign of the local road network and improvements to streetscape amenity
  • Integration of public transport including a future train station
  • Provision for higher density housing (both stand alone and above compatible commercial and retail uses)
  • Further development of the walking and cycling network, particularly the Adelaide to Marino Rocks Greenway
  • Realignment of Ackland Street, providing a connection between Raglan Avenue and the Edward Street/South Road intersection
  • Creation of high quality open space and Lifestyle Precinct.
