"Its all happening in Brompton"

The 'CityEdge' development has been the driving force of change in the area for the past four years. With the development coming to an end, the transformation is amazing! The central reserve, located on Cappers Drive, is a fantastic spot for the children to play.
Ongoing construction around the reserve will continue to enhance the look of the site.
The 'CityEdge Apartments' located at the southern side of the reserve is set to create a frenzy when released to the market in the coming month. Featuring three levels of two bedroom apartments with undercroft secure parking, this is the setting the standard of living in the area.
Many townhouse sites are under construction and are proving to be very popular.

"An up-and-coming neighbourhood"

This up-and-coming suburb, situated just north of Adelaide and west of Prospect, is undergoing a huge transformation. Previously an industrial heartland, Brompton is becoming a residential hotspot. The old cottages in this suburb are undergoing major renovations and modern townhouses are springing up everywhere.

Rents are still quite low in the area, and the house prices haven't quite taken off... yet. Expect a boom once the economy starts to pick up.

In a close and convenient location to Adelaide's CBD, getting to work is easy. It's just a 15 minute drive to the heart of the city, or otherwise simply hop on the bus on Torrens Road and you'll be in the CBD in less than 20 minutes.

There are still a few old areas and not so friendly pubs around Brompton, so do take care at night time.

The shopping and café facilities in this suburb have not kept up with the rapid residential development, so you'll need to go to neighbouring Prospect for your grocery shopping or to catch up with a friend over coffee.

One hidden gem, tucked away on Second Avenue, is the Brompton Hotel. A recently renovated bar and restaurant, this place is perfect for a quiet mid-week drink, casual pub meal, restaurant dining or a big Saturday night.
