Renewal SA is seeking expressions of interest from individuals or businesses looking for a short-term opportunity to develop an existing business or test a new model at The Chapel, Lot Fourteen.

Renewal SA has been busy over at the site formerly known as the Old Royal Adelaide Hospital knocking down buildings and tidying up the heritage buildings so as to welcome new businesses into what we’re now calling Lot Fourteen.


Lot Fourteen – FREE RENT

The Chapel is a retro-looking space with light-filled windows, parquetry floors, a raised stage and a main room area of approximately 200sqm. It also has a balcony area with a view of the Chapel Lawns. The space can cater to events, workshops and cocktail functions. A small kitchenette and four smaller rooms are also available for the operator’s use. Read more and apply here. Expression of Interest closes 2pm Thursday, 07 March.

There are 400 tenants working out of Lot Fourteen and 100 more contractors actively engaged in demolition works and refitting old buildings for the city’s central innovation neighbourhood. Into this mix, Renewal SA is looking to insert a quality food and beverage operator at the site’s central social hub, The Chapel.

Lot Fourteen has all the trimmings of a tech campus – some significant tenants like the University of Adelaide’s Institute of Machine Learning and nano satellite company Myriota, but also the progressive social and cultural policies of a Silicon Valley juggernaut. Lot Fourteen is investing heavily in the social and cultural fabric of the site as well as the built environment. They’re targeting a 6 Star Green Star Communities certification for “world leadership” as well as an International Well Building Institute certification for Lot Fourteen’s commitment to wellbeing, health and fitness, social engagement and cohesion in a sustainable community.

And a big part of hitting the Green Star and Well ratings is the requirement of the site to reduce its ecological footprint and encourage better eating habits in its tenants. This is where you (if you’re a food and beverage business) come in.

The successful operator will “offer healthy and fresh food options as part of their standard offering which would include breakfast items, lunch and afternoon snacks that include vegetarian and vegan alternatives. Ideally the operator will have, or will apply for, a liquor license to enable functions and events in The Chapel and is willing to actively participate, where appropriate, in the Lot Fourteen tenant activation program – in particular the Hello Fridays activation held on the final Friday of the month, 4pm to 8pm (pictured in the slideshow above),” a statement from Renewal SA says.

“The successful operator will enter into a lease for The Chapel for a six month term with access to one (1) car park for deliveries. A six (6) month rent-free period will be offered to the successful applicant to enable the new operator to get a return on the capital they may invest in fitout and set-up. Renewal SA is open to negotiation to support minor fitout costs.”

It’s a captive audience of 400 people plus the tradies. It’s a rent-free space for six months. Lot Fourteen is a major priority of the Marshall Liberal Government and is a centrepiece of urban and economic renewal in our state.

This is an opportunity for sure. Download the expression of interest form  here for more details and to apply.
