Riverfields will cater to the hospitality, lifestyle, leisure and shopping needs of locals and visitors to the area.
Harvest Square is Riverfields’ flagship mixed-use development and will incorporate a neighbourhood shopping centre with office and residential facilities. A central public square will be a key feature of this centre designed by one of SA’s leading architectural firms – GAPP Urban Designers & Architects.

- Access to untapped & underserviced markets
- Growing resident & work force community
- Development opportunities across retail sector
- Strong business tourism opportunity for 150 – 200 room four star hotel with conferencing facilities
