we see OUR CIT Y REDEVELOPMENT


UNITING COMMUNITIES’ CIT Y PRESENCE IS GETTING A BOLD MAKEOVER, WITH THE CONSTRUCTION OF A STRIKING NEW REDEVELOPMENT IN THE HEART OF ADELAIDE’S CBD.


Due for completion in mid-2018, the $80 million ‘Uniting in the City’ project will create a 20-storey, multi- use building to provide specialist long-term rental and respite accommodation for people living with disability, along with unique city retirement living and office, hospitality and community spaces.


The new venture will create up to 180 new jobs for South Australians and provide 85 new purpose-built apartments, helping to further regenerate and revitalise the Market District precinct.


…an exciting opportunity to grow, develop and respond to the evolving needs of our community.


“This is a hugely exciting project for South Australia. It’s bold and ambitious, and celebrates the enormous commitment to inclusive community that is a hallmark of Uniting Communities,” says Chief Executive, Simon Schrapel.


The development will incorporate parts of the existing Uniting Communities site on the corner of Pitt and Franklin Streets, and is designed to respond to evolving and growing community needs. Continuing the legacy of the Methodist and Uniting Churches on the site, the building will offer space for worship and church activities.


It will also offer a new home for our services including Lifeline Adelaide, personal and family counselling, and youth health programs. An innovative new youth employment enterprise and creative community art installations will also feature in the building.


THE BUILDING WILL ALSO SHOWCASE SUSTAINABILIT Y FROM ALL ANGLES. IT WILL AIM TO ACHIEVE A HIGH- LEVEL BUILDING RATING, DEMONSTRATING OUR ONGOING COMMITMENT TO REDUCING CARBON EMISSIONS AS PART OF OUR BEYOND CARBON NEUTRAL PROGRAM.


Additionally, the multi-use development will incorporate café spaces, retail and commercial offices, and open up a new pedestrian laneway connecting Franklin and Grote Streets. This will invite additional opportunities to partner more broadly with the community and develop relationships with other socially driven individuals and organisations.
