On the hunt for a unique, character-filled space for your creative concept? Look no further than this mid-century basement tenancy on Flinders Street!

The space

221 – 225 Flinders Street is an exciting blank canvas, featuring details from a bygone era – think mid-century wooden details, ornate light fixtures, wrought iron gates and beautiful parquet floors. The white-walled, open-plan basement space is lit by contemporary downlights, and includes a small bar with a beer tap – perfect for events or a fun studio!

The location

You’ll be nearby Renew Adelaide graduate Pogo Coffee Roasters and located next to bustling co-working office space, WOTSO. With access via Flinders Street (or via the adjacent alleyway), this spot is perfect for a concept keen to play into the ‘hidden gem’ vibe of the location.

Who you are

Renew Adelaide is open to a concept that can activate this unique gem of a space with an equally unique concept! While the tenancy lends itself to a studio, gallery or office-based venture, we are open to any venture that brings new energy to the precinct. Please note, due to space’s proximity to WOTSO, noise levels will need to considered if your concept involves music production.

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.
