Adelaide has rejuvenated its side streets and laneways, making them destinations in their own right and is now developing the Market to Riverbank Link, creating a continuous walking path from the Adelaide Central Market to the Riverbank.
In the city’s West End, upgrades to Leigh Street and Bank Street transformed them and brought new life to these unique parts of the CBD. The Bank Street Demonstration Project, led by DPTI, was announced as the winner of the Public Realm/ Urban Design category of the Mainstreet Excellence 2013 Awards.
Neighbouring Peel Street is also now a real destination featuring some of Adelaide’s most popular eateries, small bars and the co work space Hub Adelaide.
Together, the Adelaide City Council, the South Australian Government and businesses have transformed these streets, creating attractive and exciting areas for people to discover, enjoy and use for both business and pleasure.
The Capital City Committee supported activating Adelaide’s side streets and laneways by outlining a vision for the city that committed the South Australian Government and the Adelaide City Council to work together to transform the little-used alleys and laneways of the CBD and spaces in between into exciting places that attract people to the heart of the city.
