About The Prince’s Terrace

The Prince’s Terrace Adelaide was a collaboration between Defence Housing Australia, The Prince's Trust Australia and the State Government’s Urban Renewal Authority (Renewal SA).

As the first residential project to receive a ‘6 Star Green Star’ design rating from the Green Building Council of Australia, the Terrace encapsulates innovation and world leadership in sustainable design.

Located in the revitalised urban precinct of Bowden in South Australia, The Prince’s Terrace Adelaide provides 12 high-quality homes—a mix of eight terraces and four flats built as mews behind the terraces.

These homes use 50 per cent less energy and 50 per cent less potable water than a typical urban townhouse, with a carbon footprint also reduced by more than 40 per cent when compared to a standard house.

This project demonstrates the benefit of well-located and sustainable living, with a vision to not only influence DHA’s future projects, but to become a benchmark for residential development in Australia.  

The Prince’s Terrace Adelaide officially broke ground in November 2015, with His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, turning the first sod. His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC, Governor of South Australia, Senator for South Australia and Chair of the Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade, Senator David Fawcett, and City of Charles Sturt Mayor, Angela Evans, opened the Terrace in December 2017.
