Dock One celebrated a big milestone today with a dirt-breaking ceremony on site by the Promenade.

The event, which was attended by 50 people including local VIPs, members of the community and Dock One build partners, marks the start of home construction in the heart of Port Adelaide.

Starfish Developments’ Managing Director, Damon Nagel said,

“This key stage of development is not just significant for Dock One and for Port Adelaide, it’s a real show of confidence for all South Australia to know that rejuvenation of the Port, and last undeveloped dockland in Australia, is finally underway.”

Groundworks are already completed and Civils underway at Dock One, with slabs to be poured this week for the first townhouses.

City of Port Enfield Mayor Claire Boan said she was excited by the new vibrancy emerging at Port Adelaide and welcomed the contribution made by Dock One.

“(Dock One) will help bring more businesses to the Port, attracted to the area due to the extra accommodation that will be available to people. So bring on extra people into the Port, continue to bring it back to life …. we’re starting to bring the Port alive and you guys are part of that with us so thanks very much,” said Claire.

Damon attributed the outstanding success of Dock One progress to the strength of teamwork within the inhouse team and with the company’s construction partners.

Damon said, “It’s a joint effort to get to this point. We couldn’t achieve it without the passion and commitment of the whole team. Our ethos of ‘winning together’ makes it all happen.
