Council appoints a familiar face to deliver Mainstreet Upgrade Stage Four

10th February 2022
Outside Ideas is a commercial landscaping and civil engineering firm, with a portfolio that encompasses a number of high-profile projects from across the state.

The City of Victor Harbor is excited to announce that South Australian company Outside Ideas has been appointed to deliver Stage Four of the Victor Harbor Mainstreet Precinct Upgrade.

Outside Ideas was previously contracted to deliver Stage 1 and Stage 2 of the Mainstreet Precinct Upgrade, completed in 2016 and 2019 respectively.

Outside Ideas is a commercial landscaping and civil engineering firm, with a portfolio that encompasses a number of high-profile projects from across the state.

Stage Four of the Mainstreet Precinct transformation will complement the modern streetscape designs from the first three stages.

The project will primarily focus on improved pedestrian usability, street greening, inclusion of public art, and enhancing the overall appearance of the area to showcase the Mainstreet Precinct’s offering to locals and visitors.

City of Victor Harbor Mayor, Dr Moira Jenkins, said this particular stage of the Mainstreet Precinct Upgrade is set to transform how Victor Harbor’s town centre is perceived and enjoyed by the wider community.

“The project area includes the busy southern end of Ocean Street, which is often described as our tourist hub and the beating heart of our town centre,” Mayor Jenkins said.

“The new streetscape design will create an inviting atmosphere for the community to gather, dine and be entertained.”

“Outside Ideas has already been extensively involved in the revitalisation of our town centre and Council is pleased to be working alongside their experienced and highly applauded team again.”

Outside Ideas Director, Aaron Superina, said the team is overjoyed to be continuing the revitalisation of Victor Harbor’s Mainstreet Precinct.

“Victor Harbor is a place that so many South Australians feel a personal connection to, so we are thrilled to be a part of this next stage and bring one of the busiest areas in the town to life.”

Last year, it was announced that Stage Four of the Victor Harbor Mainstreet Precinct Upgrade will be co-funded by the Government of South Australia’s Local Government Infrastructure Partnership Program.

Early works are expected to begin in March 2022 and full construction in May 2022.
