The iconic redevelopment of the Adelaide Festival Plaza began in December 2016, since then the plaza is constantly changing. Watch the project progress on site with one of the time lapse videos below.
The Adelaide Festival Plaza is set to become a world-class destination at the heart of the Adelaide Riverbank, a place to meet, relax, and enjoy a unique experience.
When completed, the redeveloped plaza will include a new square, upgrades to the northern promenade alongside Adelaide Festival Centre, a stronger integration with King William Road, a reimagined Station Road and a new entry to the Adelaide Railway Station.
Since the Adelaide Festival Plaza redevelopment began in December 2016 a lot of work went into preparing the plaza and restricting access for construction with hoarding around the entire 3.9 hectare site.
The time lapse video begins with the demolition and removal of bridges (such as the glass bridge that went between the Adelaide Casino and the Adelaide Festival Centre), clearing of existing roads and relocation of sewer and stormwater mains.
The construction of 342 concrete pilings to form foundations for buildings is well underway, as well as grade separation works. All these works have been completed whilst allowing access to three loading docks which were used by businesses around the redevelopment.
