Eighty Eight O’Connell is at the heart of the city’s most refined neighbourhood.
North Adelaide is a place of art and culture, of acclaimed restaurants, homegrown neighbourhood cafes and Adelaide’s finest parklands. On its elegant streets, lined with heritage architecture, it feels as though you are stepping through the pages of time.
Once a thriving retail destination, 88 O’Connell Street holds iconic, intergenerational memories for many. Lying in wait for over 30 years, the address now embarks on a new journey, one that connects, creates and energises the future of this vibrant, historic neighbourhood for future generations. North Adelaide is where youthful spirit meets classical soul. It’s where the local barista knows your name and the florist offers a friendly wave as you walk by.
Adelaide City Council’s vision to preserve North Adelaide’s landscape and biodiversity can be admired in the neighbourhood’s bountiful green spaces that transform throughout the seasons. Residents will discover favourite everyday escapes in revegetated bushland trails, dog-friendly spaces, University Ovals and Park 10 running loops and fitness stations, or Lefevre Terrace’s beloved ‘Helicopter Park’ with its neighbouring horse field, a favourite for every generation.
