Construction starts on Port Adelaide office
06 Feb 2017

Work has begun on a new office building in Port Adelaide which will house more than 500 public servants, helping to revitalise the Port, grow its daytime economy and support construction jobs.

Developer epc.Pacific Pty Ltd is developing the new building to be leased by the State Government, with a forecast value of more than $40 million.

The building at the corner of Nile and Robe streets will improve the vibrancy of Port Adelaide and provide an economic boost to local businesses, in keeping with the Government’s Our Port policy.

The building will consist of:

[*]ground floor retail space
[*]two levels of car parking accommodating 142 cars
[*]three levels of office accommodation

The new building has been designed to achieve a minimum 5 Star Green Star fit out rating and a minimum 5 Star energy and water consumption rating.

The project, which is expected to be completed in the second quarter of next year, is being conducted in line with the State Government’s Industry Participation Policy, which maximises the benefit for local businesses and workers, and the Steel Procurement Policy, requiring all steel to meet Australian standards.

It also supports the Northern Economic Plan, which is a blueprint for a prosperous northern Adelaide, focused on creating jobs and empowering local communities.

The Northern Economic Plan has been developed by the State Government in partnership with the Port Adelaide Enfield, Salisbury, and Playford Councils, along with industries, businesses, and the community.

More information is available at Northern Economic Plan website.

Port Adelaide tourism boost as Dock 2 poised to house historic ships

Image
Historic ships and replicas are key parts of Port Adelaide's rich maritime history

A plan for Port Adelaide to have a dedicated home for some South Australia's historic ships has been welcomed by local Mayor Gary Johanson.

The South Australian Government has recommended ships including the City of Adelaide clipper and the schooner Nelcebee go on permanent display at Dock 2 in the heart of the port.

The plan, aimed at boosting local tourism, has been unveiled to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the One And All, a purpose-built sail training ship operated by Adelaide volunteers and owned by the State Government.

Mr Johanson said work remained to be done on the Dock 2 plan, but he was optimistic it would come to fruition.

"This is a very rare opportunity where you'll have prime waterfront land the Government is releasing for this maritime precinct," he said.

Urban Development Minister Stephen Mullighan said Port Adelaide's maritime history needed to be preserved, in an era when new housing and development was transforming the area in Adelaide's north-west.

"It will ensure that, during this period of growth, the unique maritime history of our port is not only preserved but also embraced and celebrated," he said.

"The strategy sets out a clear path forward for the preservation and management of these historic resources to ensure the public can continue to enjoy them and to further develop them as drawcards for Port Adelaide."

Funds are being raised for City of Adelaide clipper restoration work.

Clipper travelled from Scotland to Adelaide

The hull of the City of Adelaide clipper was transported on a barge halfway across the world, from Scotland to Adelaide, and funds are being raised to help restore it.

Project director Peter Christopher is delighted with news of the Dock 2 proposal.

"The 1864 clipper ... together with other historic vessels in a central and accessible location can tell an important story to young and old.

"The City of Adelaide has international significance, being one of only two remaining composite clipper ships in the world today — the other being the famous, but younger, Cutty Sark in London."

The proposal is for currently water-based ships such as the One And All and the Falie to remain where they are now tied up, at Port Adelaide's McLaren Wharf.

Encouraging news. Would be great to see some of the lovely old hotels thriving again.

Introducing The Port Admiral Hotel

Clever Little Tailor, Low & Slow BBQ and chef Stewart Wesson are teaming up to make something very new and very different, in a very surprising location.

Image

Crispian Fielke and Angus Henderson have both – separately – always dreamed of running a pub.

“It’s the great Australian dream,” says Angus. “Pubs always existed in my mind as the pinnacle of society,” says Crispian – unprompted, and during an entirely different interview.

Despite this, neither of them have opened a pub. Crispian is part of the crew behind Clever Little Tailor (CLT), Pink Moon Saloon, and Pink Moon Deli. Angus is a corner of the trio who own and run Low & Slow American BBQ.

But now, the two teams are joining together to open a pub. And they’re doing it in Port Adelaide.

The new venture is actually an old one. The Port Admiral Hotel is the eighth oldest in South Australia, but for more than a decade its doors have been shuttered.

Image

Crispian and his CLT partners – Josh Baker (Coffee Branch, Larry & Ladd, Whistle and Flute, Pink Moon Saloon and Deli) and Dana Whyte (Pink Moon Saloon and Deli) – are coming together with Angus’ Low & Slow collaborators Jim Morrison and Angus Kiley and chef Stewart Wesson (The Flinders Street Project, Whistle and Flute) to open the pub’s doors once more.

It’s a venture that was almost over before it had even begun.

“Josh Baker has taught me that you should be open to everything,” says Crispian.

“And when this came up Josh’s words rang true because I nearly didn’t do the drive.

“But, eventually, I said to Dana and Josh, ‘Hendo has been ringing me – there’s something I have to show you’, and we went for a drive and then about three hours later the seven of us clinked our glasses.”

Key to that decision was the building itself – a classic Australian pub design with a front bar, saloon, space for a beer garden, and an enormous verandah stretching all the way around the upstairs level.

But Crispian’s familiarity with landlords Alison Sloley and Adam Freeman – who bought the tenancy in 2016 – was also important.

“I worked for them in North Adelaide when they opened The Store in 1997 or thereabouts,” says Crispian.

“You could write a whole article about Alison’s influence in the Port. She really has the community in mind. Adam is very hands on and he loves a build. They’re getting it to the stage where we can take a shell off them, and then we’ll fit it out fully.”

The seven-person-strong Low & Slow x CLT + Stewart Wesson team have come up with a vision for the pub which blends elements of what they’re already known for with an understanding of the area.

“It’s going to be a full Australian classic hotel, but just done right,” says Angus.

Image

“There will be modernisation of those classic menu items. And there’s not hospitality in hotels anymore, we’re bringing it back.

“The face of the publican is so important in the Australian pub culture. So you’ll have us three [from Low & Slow] and Crispian down there pouring beers every day.”

Angus grew up in the area, as did Angus Kiley – and Low & Slow is based there. They bring a strong local slant to the plans for the Port Admiral Hotel.

“Everyone is very community minded around here. The business owners want new stuff because it’s just going to bring more people to the area,” says Angus.

“The people who live here are just so excited about it… I always thought the biggest problem was there was no businesses – why would you live here if there was nothing to do?

“But now we have wine bars, hotels, new hotel, a great little BBQ joint, West Side massive up in Semaphore from Big Shed. Sweet Amber which is like a craft brewery and café.

“There’s things to do – you can eat, you can drink, you can watch some live music, you can spend the day here.”

Incorporating a front bar, a kitchen, a beer garden, upstairs function rooms, a take-away bottle shop, and a fish and chippery for all day eat in and take-away, the pub will have staples like footy tips and schnitzels.

But, the team know they will also have to offer enough points of difference to attract people from outside the area as well if it’s going to be a success.

“Because there’s six or seven pubs around here where you can get those things, so we’ll offer what we know best,” says Crispian.

“We won’t pour West End but we will have it in the can. Coopers Pale probably fits, Pirate Life definitely fit. We have to navigate that ground carefully but we’re not going to completely ignore what’s in our hearts, which is tasty things made by smaller companies.”

The food offering will also be a stand out. Stewart Wesson will be cooking over a charcoal grill as he re-works classic pub menu items, and will be taking full advantage of his close proximity to water by focussing heavily on seafood on the regular menu and in the fish and chip shop.

“The Port Local Fry Shop is what we’re calling it,” says Angus. “There will be fresh fish delivered every day and all of our chips will be hand cut.”

The opening of the venue is still a while away – although Crispian says he “would love to be open by the time The Saints win the 2017 Grand Final”.

But, even while the venue is under construction, it gives a solid indication that this time around, something truly is happening at The Port.

Great news about the Port Admiral, unfortunately there at least 3 other derelict pubs in Port Adelaide at the moment. I don't think they will all be coming back...........
I am looking forward to the opening of the new office block next to the Quest Hotel and the re-deployment of 500 government workers to the Port, this should really generate economic activity in the heart of the old town.
Small steps...but at least we are now travelling in the right direction.

Historic Port Adelaide transformed into technicolour delight for Wonderwalls Festival

Image

HISTORIC Port Adelaide will be transformed into a technicolour wonderland as local and international artists convert more than 30 walls into vivid street art murals.

More than 10,000 people are expected to descend upon the Port this coming weekend for the Wonderwalls Festival to witness once decaying and neglected walls given a new and colourful lease on life

The three-day event returns after a inaugural 2015 festival which found a number of walls and buildings in the area transformed in larger than life pieces of art.

Image

Among this years artists will be Wonderwalls Festival curator Joel van Moore, also known as Vans the Omega, and renowned San Francisco street artist Amanda Lynn.

Ms Lynn said the simple act of painting a wall could transform the space into a neighbourhood icon.

“It’s always amazing to me how people really gravitate towards murals,” she said.

“They see them as something that belongs to them personally and often use them as an icon of their neighbourhoods. My hope is that the work I do inspires and enlightens a person’s day.”

I don't know how long the Golden Port Tavern has been shut for.....maybe 7 or 8 years.......certainly before it closed the owners never did any maintenance work, so it looked derelict even when it was still open.
The Colac is closed and no news on that site.
And the pub diagonally opposite the Port Admiral (on the corner of Commercial Road and St Vincent St) has been re-developed into shops.
So maybe only 2 derelict pubs......

I know the Colac has been sold and plans are being drawn for the restoration plus building new short term accommodation behind. Have also heard a few of the old wool stores have sold to Ginos (Leigh St owner)... Possible mixed uses inc. bars/live music/restaurants/microbrewery/markets & possible apartment conversion.

Glad to hear there are plans to re-use the Colac and expand development around the pub.

Also great news that the wool stores are to be repurposed, Port Adelaide really does need more residents (and people with money to spend, more social housing just doesn't cut it). Short term residential growth would solidify the base of existing businesses, allowing the shops/pubs etc that are already there, to continue trading profitably.

The wool stores, as a residential area, would be quite a change for Adelaide. I believe this would be a longer term development, Adelaide people still seem to be coming to terms with "apartment" living (in all sorts of forms).

The wool stores could be fantastic if treated well. I'm thinking along the lines of the DUMBO neighborhood in Brooklyn. Good medium and high density living that maintains (and leverages) the heritage of the existing warehouses. Mix in a healthy dose of retail, hospitality and arts businesses, and maybe some light manufacturing (like bespoke furniture makers).

Even better if can be done alongside a new Port Dock rail station.

Adding to PeFe's recent post on the Wonderwalls Festival .... coming up at the end of this week.

Wonderwalls Festival is back, bigger and brighter
6 international and 23 Australian mural artists will create works of art on wall spaces in Port Adelaide.

Adding colour to the Port - a free 3 day festival (21-23 April) and open air art exhibition.

Image
ABC

According to the Curator ...
Some of the artists have picked up on the maritime theme, but everyone has tried to be considerate of Port Adelaide and the space.

[The artists] will work with the property and building owners to make artworks that are just going to be breathtaking to a public audience.
