A unique opportunity has opened up for a space on the mezzanine level of bookstore and café Read-e-book. Situated in the east end of Rundle Mall and nestled in between Valleygirl and Adidas, its proximity to Adelaide Uni and Rundle St means the area is always bustling with foot traffic making it the ideal location for a fresh new business venture.
We are looking for original ideas for this space activation, particularly those who could make best use of the upcoming Fringe season. As you would be within the Read-e-book building, you would ideally operate during regular daytime trading hours to maximise your potential. The space could suit a retail store, a studio or even a performance space, however, we are open to any creative idea that suits the location. It is essential that the successful project has an awesome idea that will draw on the tremendous foot traffic of Rundle Mall.
