On behalf of the state government, the Department of the Premier and Cabinet is leading the management and delivery of Lot Fourteen, transforming the former Royal Adelaide Hospital into a $2.2 billion world-class innovation district with a curated, collaborative research and business ecosystem dedicated to driving productivity and solving complex global challenges.
The project also has responsibility for the development of Tarrkarri-Centre for First Nations Cultures, the Entrepreneur and Innovation Centre (working name) and the Digital Technologies Academy (working name).
One of the most exciting urban renewal projects in Australia, Lot Fourteen is the centrepiece of the 10-year Adelaide City Deal to provide a springboard for innovation and bring together the state’s leading abilities in space, defence, hi-tech and creative industries.
In 2022, Lot Fourteen is already home to a skilled workforce of more than 1,400 people from more than 140 businesses, attracting some of the world’s most innovative organisations including Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.
The district is also home to research and industry powerhouses such as the MIT bigdata Living Lab, Australian Space Agency, SmartSat CRC, Australian Cyber Collaboration Centre, the Australian Institute for Machine Learning, and Stone and Chalk.
