Dock One is a four hectare waterfront development site which was released in 2015.
As the first large-scale site in Our Port that was planned for redevelopment, Dock One will become a primarily residential precinct with activated ground floor spaces facing the waterfront and public promenade.
In December 2017 it was announced that Starfish Developments was the successful proponent to redevelopment the land at Dock One, which harbours so much potential. Their proposal includes about 270 homes, which comprise predominantly of two and three bedroom townhouses.
It also includes redeveloping the Marine and Harbors building. Starfish have announced the building is to be converted in a retro style hotel with 100 rooms and a rooftop bar. They have also suggested they would like the ground floor to have a terrace restaurant and an outdoor cinema. The murals on the outside of the building are to be retained.
Following public consultation, extra open space has been included, while public access to the waterfront will be maintained with a promenade and a pedestrian bridge will be installed across Dock One.
Construction has started on the first stage of the Starfish Developments proposal at Dock One, with major contractor McMahon Services working on site preparation.
Starfish Developments Managing Director Damon Nagel says “There’s a growing excitement and anticipation, not only for those that already live and work there but for potential new residents and businesses – attracted by the prospect of investment and infrastructure that will help to position the Port as an eclectic, interesting and very accessible destination. Starfish Developments is delighted to have been selected to be part of the transformation, a rare opportunity to evolve one of the last underdeveloped Australian dockland areas into an iconic thriving place for generations to come. Dock One is all about building community and will include park linkages and direct water access for people to enjoy.”
Waterfront development will be centred around a public park with a playground and will form a hub for local and tourist activities.
Fronting St Vincent Street, new development will include a variety of uses, all designed in keeping with St Vincent Street’s main street character.
Dock One will be easily accessible to pedestrians by the waterside public promenade and along landscaped footpaths on St Vincent Street.
Building heights in Dock One will generally range from three to five storeys. Development fronting St Vincent Street will incorporate mixed-uses and will be influenced in design by the character of its surrounds. Development in the remainder of the precinct and along the waterfront will be innovative and contemporary in design.
Dock One is currently the temporary home to the Port Adelaide Community Garden. For more information on the garden, please visit the Community Garden page.
