Skydivers flying in on planned complex for Kings Rd

Indoor SkydivingIndoor Skydive Australia (ISA) has announced that it has signed an agreement securing the planning precinct the corner of Kings Rd and Main North Road for it’s indoor skydiving facility.

ISA Group has entered into an agreement with Commercial & General, the developer of the Kings Point Shopping and Entertainment Complex at Salisbury, to provide for the development and construction of an indoor skydiving facility at the Complex.

The Kings Point Shopping and Entertainment Complex has an initial budget of $180 million and will be located 15 kms from the Adelaide CBD. The Complex will be a new generation shopping, leisure and lifestyle destination, featuring around 64,000 sq.m of retail floor space combined with more than 20,000 sq.m of world class entertainment. iFLY Adelaide will headline leisure providers including cinemas, waterslides, aqua playground, indoor surfing, bowling, and more.

The location will be well connected to Adelaide’s public transport system and exposed to a high volume of vehicle traffic. The strong military presence in South Australia and the wider community’s passion for sporting events make Adelaide a natural fit for an indoor skydiving facility.

ISA Group anticipates that the facility will comprise a 12ft single return vertical wind tunnel with related merchandise and services. Under the current proposed timelines construction will commence in late 2015 with completion expected in November 2016.

“iFLY Adelaide provides the perfect opportunity for ISA Group to partner with a developer to incorporate indoor skydiving facilities into a broader entertainment complex.” said Wayne Jones, ISA Group Chief Executive Officer.

Earlier this year Salisbury Council endorsed a rezoning of the 20ha site on the corner of King and Main North roads in Salisbury South.

The project is expected to create up to 1600 ongoing jobs near Parafield Airport – in the retail, bulky goods, food and beverage, entertainment and service industries.
