Precision Group’s Port Adelaide Plaza will welcome 12 new stores in the final stage of its highly anticipated $50 million development, including a first to South Australia health and fitness concept – Blackbird Fitness. On completion, Port Adelaide Plaza will accommodate more than 70 stores and services.
Port Adelaide is transforming into an area where creativity, commerce, entertainment, and education fuse as one energetic and rewarding destination.
“Port Adelaide is currently going through a revival with an expected increase in housing and infrastructure spending linked to the $90 billion worth of shipbuilding projects at the Osborne shipyard and the jobs boom that this creates. Port Adelaide Plaza is nestled in the epicentre of that area.” Trevor Dill Precision Group Chief Operating Officer.
The Blackbird Fitness concept began after identifying a growing gap in the market within the health and fitness industry. One of the defining features of Blackbird Fitness, Port Adelaide Plaza will be the focus on building a community or tribe of members creating a unique culture that sets Blackbirds apart from the rest of the competition.
The 1,800m2, 24-hour, Blackbird Fitness, Port Adelaide Plaza will feature HIIT classes (High Intensity Interval Training), yoga and mobility training, sauna, cryotherapy, physiotherapy and separate multiple male and female infrared sauna units. To differentiate itself from the standard gym facility model, Blackbird will feature a large women’s only area to serve as a fitness hub for all the female members. The gym has already signed 250 members which will attract 1,200 visitations per week.

The Port Adelaide Plaza Cue store features a 20-metre shop front which will showcase new arrivals each week – dresses, skirts, pants, shorts, peplum tops, accessories, workwear and more.
