Prospect has to be one of our favourite suburbs. Not only is it chock full of some of great restaurants (hello Mekko Market and New Nordic!), but the streets are bright with gorgeous art murals so you can feast your eyes as well as your bellies! It’s pretty much your ideal suburb.
Perched on the edge of Adelaide’s city, Prospect 1838 presents the perfect opportunity for first-time home buyers to create a future as rich as the neighbourhood’s history — which will be displayed like a story book along an artistically created history wall for the new community to enjoy.
The property development was initially inspired by the area’s historical strength of community and neighbourly values, which are instilled in the community there today.
Originally settled and developed by farmers, Prospect grew a wholesome community with prestigious private schools, inviting hotels, and community events like soap box racing and cycle races that brought people together.
Local Adelaide artists, Richard Browning, Dave Court, and Jake Holmes have begun collaborating on the transformation of the wall from nude brick to artistic gold, with Richard taking one side of the wall to display the stories of Prospect’s history and Dave and Jake taking the other to paint an inspired and abstract interpretation of Prospect’s history and culture.
Dave recently painted Adelaide’s largest mural, ‘City of Music’, on Hindley Street and is excited about taking on his next project in Prospect. You can have a read about the ‘City of Music’ mural here.
The history wall is officially underway and the developers invite members of the surrounding communities to attend the official unveiling of the magnificent history wall in the near future.
