The City of Playford is supporting growth and embarking on a major development scheme for the region, through the development of the CBD of northern Adelaide.
It will see the transformation of the Elizabeth City Centre into a thriving metropolis that offers the services, amenity and cultural diversity to support an enviable lifestyle and sustainable community.
The CBD will help create connectivity and integration between the existing retail, commercial and entertainment facilities, with new developments. This will include creating pedestrian linkages, paths and public spaces between facilities to help create a main street feel.
It will be the place for residents and visitors to go for retails, arts, entertainment, commerce, government services, health, education and training in northern Adelaide.
The next steps are for Council to prepare the land around the Civic Centre for government and private sector to construct a number of mixed use developments, including main street retail, office and apartments. These preparatory works will include upgrading Playford Boulevard and creating a brand new Prince George Plaza, which will be a central community space. The Grenville Community Centre will also be redeveloped as part of this project. Works are expected to commence in mid-2016.
The significance of this project has been recognised nationally, with the Federal Government investing $2.75M as part of the National Stronger Regions Funding, which Council will match.
