at Port Adelaide

Ari and I wandered around Port Adelaide after I had coffee with Dani McLean at the Red Lime Shack. The Ball of Light exhibition by Denis Smith at the Forge Warehouse wasn’t open so I took the opportunity to see what was happening with the redevelopment of the Port.

The Sawtooth building has a photo by Dani of its interior stuck on its outside wall:

Nothing much has happened in terms of redevelopment.

Many of the gracious old heritage builds in the Port stand empty with no tenants. Urban Construct, the developer of the new apartment buildings along the river, has gone leaving the redevelopment unfinished. The government had stripped Urban Construct of its contract to develop the Newport Quays precinct in October 2011.
