I'd like to see the light rail link from the current railway station through the rail museum, then around past the old Colac Hotel and Santo Parade, over to Dock 2, where a marine park featuring the City of Adelaide and other historic ships has been proposed. Then over the existing rail bridge on Port River to Semaphore Rd and down to Semaphore Jetty. Then ultimately changing the current heavy rail from Outer Harbour to the city to light rail. Would also love to see the Tram Museum relocate from St Kilda to the Port and running some of the vintage stock on the Semaphore route on weekends. Business case of course, but the combination of commuter and tourist patronage makes it worthy of a study. The demolition of the Port Dock Railway Station in 1963 was an absolute heritage tragedy. It was a unique and iconic building. A replica of at least the façade would be a wonderful thing at/near the Railway Museum.
All that's nice and such, but it wont change anything in Port Adelaide.
Port Adelaide will boom as a location, when the nearby heavy dirty industry is moved on.
Why would anyone want to buy property either as investment or to live in, when there's pollution heavy industrial sites nearby?
Yeh, here, spend a few hundred thousand on this lovely apartment. Sit out on your balcony or look out your living area window and enjoy the view...not.

The whole Port Adelaide area and Le Fevre peninsula need to be improved.
Everything from Rosewater/Ottoway to North Haven.
A new road should be constructed through Gillman, near Torrens Island & the market, with a bridge over to Le Fevre peninsula connecting to Victoria Road for freight trucks to connect to the container terminal.

That's what the Port River Expressway and the Diver Derrick Bridge are for

Noo you don't say? lol
I'm suggesting that heavy freight traffic should be sent further north and further away from the centre of Port Adelaide.

Totally agree
A new tall bridge over the Port River with a new road that parallels Victoria Rd. Taking all industrial traffic off of the residential roads

If you want to think really big, it's not that far from the St Kilda breakwater to Pelican Point power station. The Barker Inlet end doesn't need to be really high, only from Torrens Island to Pelican Point.

The trouble is that once someone builds a new road, things move to match, and then a new road is required again. Port River Expressway was out of the way when it was built. I'm more interested to see where SA's next container terminal will be, and who will build it.

A "fluff" piece from The Advertiser on the renovations taking place at the Port Admiral hotel.
How Port Adelaide’s Port Admiral Hotel is getting its character back — the rebirth of a 168-year-old pub
Image

THE historic Port Admiral Hotel is about to start a fresh chapter in its life — after a two-year, million-dollar restoration.
Owner-renovators Alison Sloley and Adam Freeman have just handed the keys to the 1849 heritage pub to new tenants.
It’s the oldest remaining building in Port Adelaide and eighth oldest in the state.
Moving in are Angus Henderson with partners Angus Kiley and Jim Morrison, from nearby Low and Slow American BBQ, along with Crispian Fielke, Josh Baker and Dana Whyte from city bar Clever Little Tailor.
Renowned chef Stewart Wesson from Unley’s Whistle and Flute cafe will round out the new team known as Port Local.

Another sign of the Port Adelaide revival.

Seems to be the Railway Hotel in the picture - is it this pub, or is it a generic picture?

The Port Admiral started its life briefly as the Railway Hotel, when the original Adelaide to Port Adelaide railway was planned to terminate there. When the railway was eventually built the Port Dock station was located further down St Vincent St. The hotel changed its name to the Port Admiral and the current Railway Hotel opened directly opposite the station.

Just found this in The Messenger from a couple of weeks ago
Port Adelaide master plan revealed: New townhouses, shops, cafes, cinema on the waterfront

Image

ABOUT 1300 homes including four-storey townhouses, shops, cafes and an outdoor cinema are set to be built along the waterfront in the historic heart of Port Adelaide.

A public promenade around the inner harbour waterfront, converting the old Marine and Harbors building into apartments and shops and the creation of an observation deck are among the other plans for the site being released today.

The State Government has selected two Australian developers and a South Australian construction company as preferred proponents for five parcels of land on the inner harbour.

The developments are planned to take up 23ha of the 40ha of land the Government put on the market in May last year.

Housing and Urban Development Minister Stephen Mullighan said Port Adelaide was a unique development opportunity combining vast parcels of waterfront land with 180 years of distinctive maritime history and heritage buildings.

“These projects provide plenty of open space and recreational facilities, as well as preserving public access to the waterfront as well. It will be a great place for families looking to live in the west,” he said.

Good news story for the Port and an emerging, award-winning local SA business.

New craft beer brewery planned for Port Adelaide
Booming South Australian craft beer business Pirate Life Brewing plans to open a new brewery in Port Adelaide in 2018.
Pirate Life is fast outgrowing its inner-city Adelaide base in Hindmarsh where it was started in 2014
by West Australian father and son team Michael and Jack Cameron and Jack’s best mate Jared “Red” Proudfoot.

.... the new brewery would likely include a 200-250-seat hospitality venue – an aspect of the business lacking at its jam-packed Hindmarsh brewery.

He said a site in Port Adelaide had been chosen but could not yet be revealed ...

“There’s a lot of good things happening down at Port Adelaide; there’s a lot of new restaurants and a few pubs being redeveloped, so if we can get the brewery down there and have a front-of-house offering then we can add to the development of Port Adelaide.”

Pirate Life’s hoppy West Coast-style beers in a can have proven a hit, with production reaching 2.3 million litres in 2016/17. ...
“Two and a half years ago we started ... and we’ve now got 41 staff on the books and we are planning on building the new brewery in Port Adelaide"

"Moving to Adelaide has proven to be an absolute rock-star decision not only from a distribution point of view but it is a city that thrives on quality – its wine and food industries, its location and its beauty.”

“We’re still growing – we’ve got new tanks coming in the week after next, which will give us a 40 per cent capacity on that and it will allow us to open up some more markets within Australia and focus a bit more on export.
....

Port precinct revivals in other states
Craft beer has played a role in the revival of several major port precincts around Australia in recent years, including Fremantle, Darling Harbour and Geelong.

Cameron said Pirate Life recognised the potential of Port Adelaide.
“It’s going to get to the point where people are going to want to get down there to enjoy Port Adelaide,” he said

"It’s not just about craft beer – it’s about food and wine and all the quality things South Australia has to offer like art, music and architecture. Beer just becomes a part of that overall picture that makes Port Adelaide a great place to visit.

“The Government here are doing a lot of work to try and develop Port Adelaide and I think if we get the brewery up and running with a tourism facility then it will add to that.”
