Australia: Adelaide Festival Centre to get $90 million upgrade

In partnership with:

The South Australian Government will contribute $90 million to redevelop the Adelaide Festival Centre, the most significant capital infrastructure works undertaken at the Centre since it opened in 1973.   

The redevelopment will address long-standing issues with the exterior of the building and create new features, including entries, foyers and an interactive arts playground on the bank of the River Torrens. 

In addition, the State Government has committed to a redevelopment of Festival Plaza.

The whole precinct redevelopment will provide a sweeping multi-purpose plaza seamlessly linking Elder Park and the Riverbank Footbridge to the Adelaide Railway Station and North Terrace and includes new underground car park, a premium office building along a closed-to-traffic Station Road, a row of cafes, restaurants and retail.
