Naming Lot Fourteen

The name Lot Fourteen links two prominent innovations which have shaped South Australia and beyond.

In a nod to Colonel William Light’s 1837 pioneering vision for the city of Adelaide, as well as Sir Robert Richard Torrens 1858 innovative land titles law reform for South Australia, Allotment 14 (Lot Fourteen) is today’s official land title number for the majority of the seven-hectare precinct fronting North Terrace and Frome Road.  

Situated on Adelaide’s premier cultural boulevard,  nestled within the Adelaide Riverbank precinct and neighbouring the lush expanses of the Adelaide Botanic Garden and Botanic Park, Lot Fourteen sits within the original ‘Adelaide Park’ in the north east of the city, one of the nine designated areas for government use in Colonel Light’s surveyed Plan of Adelaide which were not provided with a street address or allotment number.

Using this modern allotment number as the ‘address’, the series of buildings comprising Lot Fourteen rely on this prominent name and location.

It is important we acknowledge the Kaurna community as the Traditional Owners of the Adelaide region, their continuing relationship with the Country on which Lot Fourteen sits and the opportunities that can be achieved when we work together.
