Woods Bagot has released the plans for Glenelg Jetty, a redeveloped gateway and new tourist destination in South Australia. The 15-meter-wide by 400-meter-long public jetty project was born out of a study to help revitalize Glenelg and the City of Holdfast and is hoped to attract new visitors, including visiting cruise ship passengers.
A large public event space will be located at the entrance of the jetty, and an enclosed pavilion space will be at the jetty’s end. The project additionally includes a boutique hotel, a center for marine excellence, and terminals for catamaran ferries, private luxury yachts, and seaplanes.
The hotel will be elevated over the jetty, providing continuous shelter along the length of the jetty and framing the reinstated sea baths below.
Woods Bagot had a bold new vision for Glenelg that builds on the ideas of the past, as well as creating a new future, said director Thomas Masullo. The jetty will provide a renewed focus for Glenelg and the state and more importantly become a strong piece of social infrastructure to connect with the community.
