High rise developments in Hindmarsh Square

Hindmarsh Square is a public square in Adelaide, South Australia. It is located in the centre of the north-eastern quarter of the city, and surrounds the intersection of Grenfell and Pulteney Streets, near the eastern end of the Rundle Mall. Pirie Street forms the southern boundary of the square.[1] It was named by the Street Naming Committee after John Hindmarsh, the first Governor of South Australia.[2]

The east side of the square was for many years dominated by the Congregational Church,[3] which later became the orchestral studio for ABC Radio and the South Australian Symphony Orchestra at No. 44, with other studios in adjacent buildings (48–56) and a rehearsal studio and recording facilities across the Square in the ground floor and basement of Football House (No.55).[4]

There was a massacre in this square in 2002. [5]

Hindmarsh Square is also where the new electric car charging stations are. Any non-electric car that parks here can be fined [6]
