Newport Quays – Stage 1 & 2, SA


Newport Quays – Stage 1 & 2, SA

The Newport Quays development is a $1.5 billion Multiplex construction project comprising residential accommodation and infrastructure situated on Port Adelaide’s inner harbour.

A mixture of medium and high density housing, retail, commercial and tourism buildings are situated on 50 hectares near the waterfront with dramatic views across the harbour. Newport Quays features six kilometres of water front promenades, pedestrian and cycle networks featuring public art, parklands and recreational facilities. New residential and commercial buildings make the most of this natural asset, including moorings and finger wharfs for yachts and powerboats.

Stage one, Edgewater, includes a combination of 61 townhouse villas and three separate apartment buildings with a total of 126 apartments. The townhouses have been built over two and three levels, the apartments are each five-level lifted buildings, comprising one, two and three bedrooms. All car parking is secured at ground level.

Stage two, Marina Cove, consists of 64 Villas and two independent seven-storey apartment buildings. All 164 apartments offer one, two and three bedroom configurations and secured parking.

This project also includes the construction of a 24-berth marina and associated infrastructure, including common service infrastructure, internal roads, public promenade and pedestrian/cycle paths, landscaped public green spaces and a buffer reserve.

Once the heart of South Australia’s commercial links to the outside world, the inner harbour of Port Adelaide will be re-born as a vibrant new community in the hands of Multiplex. The project is the biggest of its kind in Australia and will see a complete transformation of the once working port into a world class, mixed use waterfront precinct for people to live, work and play.
