Last year’s redevelopment of David Jones’ facade in Adelaide’s Rundle Mall unfortunately resulted in the Mall’s most famous resident being homeless during Christmas 2014. The Mall’s giant Santa, who has stood on the David Jones’ facade each Christmas since the 1960s, remained in storage until last week when he took residence at his new home on the Central Market tower on Grote Street.

The 3 tonne Santa was installed on Saturday. WTP, Moto Projects, MLEI Consulting Engineers along with McMahon Services (builder) were involved in the project for Adelaide Central Market.
