Customs House Redevelopment set to Reinvigorate Historic Port Adelaide


Exciting plans are in progress to rejuvenate the historic Customs House in Port Adelaide, with the goal of transforming it into a lively centre and top destination for residents and tourists. Led by SMG Property Developer Hans Ehmann, the project honors Port Adelaide's rich heritage by repurposing well-known landmarks such as Customs House, the Telegraph Office, Institute Building, and Waterworks offices.

Mossop is incredibly excited to be delivering the Customs House Redevelopment Project for One SMG Property, in collaboration with John Byleveld Architects, which is set to breathe new life into Port Adelaide's historic precinct.

Situated within the city block bordered by Commercial Road, Nile Street, Robe Street, and North Parade, these heritage buildings will undergo careful restoration to maintain their original appeal and historical importance. The revitalisation project seeks to convert the precinct into a dynamic community space, offering a mix of function, studio, and gallery areas, as well as retail stores and various dining choices, which will include an outdoor dining space and a brewery. Spacious open areas, decorated with street furnishings and abundant greenery, will create welcoming settings for social gatherings and recreational pastimes.

The new public plaza will have carefully designed landscaping with interactive play areas that honor Port Adelaide's deep heritage. A notable feature at the main entrance will be portions of glass flooring, providing views into the historic Harbour Master’s cellar located beneath Customs House.

It is a testament to the dedication and vision of individuals like Mr. Ehmann from One SMG Property, who see the true potential of this wonderful historic area. This redevelopment represents another step forward, and we look forward to being part of this vision to make the Port “better than ever” and seeing the positive impact it will have on the community.
