THE CRITICAL MASS OF BOTH RESIDENTS AND VISITORS BROUGHT TO THE AREA BY NEW MAYFIELD WILL REVITALIZE THE PRECINCT.
THE REGENERATION OF STURT STREET.
While the New Mayfield site is one of the largest sites in Adelaide CBD, it occupies a prime location. To the north is the popular Central Market. One block away are the South Parklands. West of the development is Whitmore Square, one of the city’s five major squares. And to the east is King William Street. “New Mayfield is literally a stone’s throw away from these four major activity areas,“ says Architect Thomas Masullo.
The significant upgrades and widening of the streetscape along Sturt Street will not only enhance Adelaide’s historic city grid, but importantly, will strengthen the city’s connectivity. Rather than see New Mayfield as a separate entity, the architects and city planners have taken a holistic approach.
AROUND THE AREA
From New Mayfield, residents will be able to walk to a huge variety of hip establishments, inviting eateries and welcoming shops. Whether it’s a splurge or something more simple on the menu, there is a nearby restaurant to please. Cheap and cheerful Asian restaurants are clustered around Gouger Street, and Italian lovers are well catered for as well.
On the weekend, linger over coffee and the papers at the local café, get inspired at a gallery, or spend the morning stocking the pantry at the market or explore the latest styles at one of the neighbourhood's many boutiques. New Mayfield is thriving, stimulating, and thoroughly urban.
