An element of creating a Vibrant City involves bringing new businesses or activities – and as a result, people – into areas that were once empty or underutilised.
Just one of the ways in which Renewal SA activates spaces in our city is through our partnership with Renew Adelaide.
Renew Adelaide is a not for profit organisation that works to activate unutilised and empty commercial properties in the CBD and Port Adelaide. Through their funding partnerships, and by working with property owners, they provide entrepreneurs and start ups with rent-free, short-term leases in which to grow their ventures.
Placemaking activity like this not only gives fledgling businesses a head start, but invigorates our city by increasing foot traffic in previously unoccupied areas and boosting the local economy by supporting local jobs. Just a few more things that contribute towards creating a vibrant city.
