A new home for your business on leafy Gilles Street!

A view of the exterior of the building on Gilles Street, showcasing large street front windows and a welcoming entrance.

Are you looking for a bright and airy space for your studio or small business? Check out this little gem on Gilles Street!

The space

This light-filled, ground-floor space on Gilles Street is ready to be activated with your business concept! It features floorboards, white walls and large windows facing onto the street – perfect for capturing the wandering eyes of passersby. The open plan lends itself to retail, gallery or studio usage, with the opportunity to divide the space for multi-purpose use. With one on-site gated car park included and ample free on-street parking for customers or clients, the space is a practical and easy-to-access hub in the heart of the city.

The location

This tenancy is situated on a leafy stretch of Gilles Street, nestled in the South-East of the city. Located in a mixed residential and commercial area, you’ll be a short walk from several pubs and iconic cafes Paddy Barry’s, Bar Peripheral and Etica, with the greenery of Hurtle Square a stone’s throw away.

Who you are

If you have a concept that will bring life to this space, we’d love to hear it! While the street frontage lends itself perfectly to retail, the tenancy would also be suitable for studio, gallery or office use. Due to the residential surroundings, high-volume operations would not be appropriate for this space.

Frequently asked questions


How does the Renew Adelaide program work?


We partner with property owners and agents to offer rent-free spaces to emerging businesses, allowing them to test their concept in the Adelaide CBD. You can read more about our program on the how it works page.


How long is the rent-free period?


This differs with each space but the minimum term is a 30-day rolling licence. This means the licence continues each month, up until you or the lessor chooses to end the licence, giving 30 days notice. In some cases, we can negotiate a fixed rent-free period with our property partner anywhere up to 12 months, depending on your concept and the property owner’s goals.


What is the benefit of being on the Renew program?


In addition to the rent-free space, Renew Adelaide acts as a support system for new ventures and can help in areas you might not have experience in – whether it’s budgeting, marketing, visual merchandising or legal. Becoming a Renew Adelaide venture also provides you with greater exposure through our marketing channels.


How do I apply for this space?


If you’re interested in this space, we recommend you come along to an inspection to ask any questions you might have. From there, you can submit an application form via our website. Visit how to apply for full details on the application process.


Can I apply without an inspection?


We strongly encourage you to attend an inspection, however, if you’re unable to attend you can still apply. If you are successful in progressing to the next stage of the application process we can arrange a private inspection.


I’ve missed the application deadline, can I still apply?


If you see a space online but have missed the application deadline, it’s best to reach out to us to see if we’re still able to accept your application.
