*** From 21st of January 2019, until construction of the new Grenville Hub is completed, all regular programs and activities will be held inside the Playford Civic Centre, conveniently located next to the old Grenville site. ***
The Grenville Community Connections Hub provides a single point of contact for a broad range of services for people 50 years and over, offering a range of programs, which encourage and promote lifelong learning, physical activity, healthy living, social connections, participation and enjoyment.
The facility provides information, knowledge and support to assist people to remain independent in the community and to live life to the fullest.
What is happening to the Grenville Hub?
The Grenville Hub is moving! A $50 million 4.5 star hotel will be built on the current Grenville Hub site. The hotel will have restaurants, rooftop bar and swimming pool and a day spa. This is a private development fully funded by an experienced hotel developer. Council will need to provide a cleared site to the CBD hotel developer by the property settlement date negotiated with the developer. The brand-new Grenville Hub will be located very close to the old site, on the eastern edge of the Prince George Plaza.
Council has listened to feedback that patrons and other stakeholders have provided. One of the most consistent messages is that people using Grenville Hub services wish to remain on Prince George Plaza – close to the existing location and amenities. The best solution and compromise is to make the Playford Civic Centre function rooms available as temporary accommodation for Grenville operations while the new Grenville Hub is built.
Every effort will be made to ensure that the business as usual services of the Grenville Hub can continue as effectively as possible during the transition phase. We know that our Grenville Patrons and external clients will understand that this transition period will require patience and occasional compromise. We are also sure that once the new state-of-the-art centre is ready for use, that the few months of inconvenience will be worthwhile.
Expected to be completed by late 2019, the new Grenville Hub will provide 40% more floor space and a new community garden, while retaining the old building's range of facilities, such as dance halls and performance areas, kitchen, dining and activity spaces, together with the offices and other amenities required to deliver the full range of services and programs.
