ADELAIDE: Moseley Square Redevelopment

Major Projects – Moseley Square Glenelg
Major redevelopment of the Moseley Square Area
Moseley Square, adjoining Adelaide's Premier Beach - Glenelg, is the major node on Adelaide's Metropolitan Coast. It is the premier seaside destination for visitors and tourists in South Australia.

The construction of the entertainment precinct of Holdfast Shores will provide a new and exciting frontage to the northern side of the square. The next 18 months will also see the redevelopment of the Glenelg tram terminus. The desire and need to upgrade Moseley Square has been reflected in an Urban Design Master Plan which has undergone a broad consultation process and subsequently been approved by Council.

The Master Plan proposes a much improved streetscape appearance with landscaping elements providing more public space for events. Moseley Square will also be integrated into the Metropolitan Coast Park initiative through strong links between the foreshore and the commercial precinct of Glenelg. The area will benefit from new paving, an integrated water feature, street furniture and lighting, a new terrace level integrating with the Holdfast Shores development, new areas of outdoor dining and three times the number of trees that will retain and further reinforce the use of palms as a design theme.

The eastern end of Moseley Square, adjacent to the coast and jetty, will include new paving to accommodate a range of events, including an amphitheatre for smaller events such as outdoor plays.

Council is also looking at new and innovative ways to manage traffic and pedestrians at the Colley Terrace end of the square. The traffic management measures being considered may incorporate a shared pedestrian zone and vehicle slow zone of 10kmph to improve pedestrian access and safety. Negotiations with Trans Adelaide are continuing in respect to relocating the tram terminus further east to increase the area of the square available for the general public.

This project is expected to commence construction in mid 2005 with completion in mid 2006.

This project is well under way. Company called Bardavcol is involved with this project. The western end of the square is mostly fenced off with the ground beginning to be ripped into.

Should be looking good when complete. I am unsure of the beach residue stone features on the ground, seems a little too corny to me. But other than that the project is certainly a vibrant and welcoming addition to the ever bubbly Glenelg.

Would anyone agree that Moseley Square might be a better place to position Michael Harbinson's idea of Times Square in Adelaide?

It is great that the council after 15 years has begun construccion of the new Moseley Square.

I know that this might seem a bit hypocritical but I am dissapointed that the old Glenelg courthouse will soon be demolished. If it was being demolished for a tall building then it would be ok, but destroying an attractive Georgian building for a two level bland concrete shopfront seems stupid.

Will I agree with you. If the facade was retained and given a makeover it could a wonderful entrance to an upmarket restaurant as part of the entertainment complex, which I see is due for completion in Feb 2006. The Irish Pub next to Mc Donalds is to be known as 'Dublin Pub'. Looking ahead, with trams coming down from O'Connell St, North Adelaide with all its cafe culture and motels, both North Adelaide and Holdfast Bay will become the states most visited places.

It's unfortunate that the current planned extension will see the tram only go as far as Brougham Place under current plans, not right up to the middle of North Adelaide.

The bigger picture will emerge later, due to North Adelaide being blighted with 'two bob snobs' that control the Adelaide City Council, and the state seat of Adelaide, held by Rann Govt by margin of 1 per cent, plans have to be drip fed at the moment. Once it has been proved that the trams in the city are a big success, the business people in North Adelaide will clamor for the extension.

Those renders are 2003, and are conceptional at that period. The tram lines will be on the Hilton Hotel side and the new plan is quite different.

well glenelg is growing up.traders used to complain about the glenelg tram. at last due to track work its been proved that good public transport helps traders.as a adelaide city council resident i welcome the glenelg tram extention along king william street into north tc. stopping at adelaide railway station.extention costings of $26 to $30 million at todays prices.adelaide is coming alive and due to improved public transport.any way leave your car home.who can afford current high prices of petrol? in London it costs $20 to bring your car into the city.cities are for people not cars. power to the people.walk around adelaide it may save your life.

Has anyone seen the new Irish pub on Moseley Square? It is a great addition to the square as it was built to blend in with the 19th century buildings in the square. It is a great imitation of a 19th century building.

The Washington Palms got planted yesterday 29 Oct, at the end near the pioneer marker. If anybody with a camera is down that way, it would be great for them to post an update. Also a pic of the Dublin pub.

If you read Kota's post again it would be a dead giveaway.

You have this annoying habbit of asking questions that are already answered in the thread you're asking them in.

Pants or AtD, you must visit Moseley Square for some pics. The makeover is simply stunning. My inspection yesterday filled me with joy, for here is now the most beautiful place in Adelaide, reminicent of Santa Monica or a transplant of the best from West Coast of USA. Even though only half complete. It is all so bright, and I would suggest some of those staid old Adelaide City Council people, get on a new tram and see what could be done with Vic Square. A big tick to all who planned it.

Will do mate.

Drove past yesterday but on sunny days at Glenelg, other things than landscaping tend to catch your eye.

Thanks Pants, a friend from Melbourne rang me to say they were there and how lovely it is. Last year there was an excellent yankee show on best resort hotels in Oz, and the Grand came in as best of 8, and it did focus on Moseley Square. They had backed Makybe Diva for a nice win, and next week over fly Adelaide on a quick visit to Perth for horseracing at Belmont.
