What is the mini Festival Theater structure in front for? Is that for a new star chamber? Sounds like there is finance and political will to make this happen though, so hope it makes it

Personally, I think the massing in each of the 4 schemes is wrong. The taller high-rise tower should be built on the corner of KW and Wright St, hence addressing and fronting KW St and reinforcing the primary significance of this street. The second mid-rise tower should be built on the corner of Wright and Mill St, hence having a less significant form abutting Mill St.

Looks like some movement on this one?

http://m.indaily.com.au/business/2014/0 ... n-develop/
Adelaide’s proposed new courts precinct project has moved to the “design and develop” stage with three consortia shortlisted by the State Government.

The consortia – Activate 40, CBUS and Investec – have been invited to submit proposals for the precinct, which is located on the corner of Gouger Street and King William Road.

From news.com:
SA Attorney-General John Rau says the new $500 million courts precinct will be ready by 2017



This story was published: 35 minutes ago March 02, 2014 10:16PM


CONTRACTS to construct South Australia’s new $500 million courthouse will be signed by December and the building completed by 2017, the State Government says.

The Advertiser can today exclusively reveal the timeline for the development of the new facility, which Attorney-General John Rau calls an “absolutely essential piece of infrastructure”.

Three development consortia — Activate 40, CBUS and Investec — have been short-listed for the project and will submit their proposals over the next few weeks.

Mr Rau said the government wanted to see construction begin in the first quarter of 2015 and the new Supreme and District Courts open for business by 2017.

“We are absolutely happy with the way things are progressing on this absolutely essential piece of infrastructure for the courts,” he said.

“This new facility will provide the courts with what they need for the next 50 years, if not more.”

For more than a decade, judges and lawyers have called for a complete overhaul of the archaic, crumbling Supreme Court building on the corner of King William and Gouger Sts.

The structure is so outdated that, when former Chief Justice John Doyle suffered an injury in 2011 and required a wheelchair, he could no longer access his own office.

The District Court building, on Victoria Square, has long struggled with courtroom availability, outdated IT facilities and cell elevators that regularly break down.

In May 2012, Mr Rau announced a $300,000 “scoping study” looking at redeveloping the courts precinct.

Twelve months later, Chief Justice Chris Kourakis warned the courts’ IT systems were 25 years old and at “high risk” of failure .

In September, the State Government announced a “massive reform” of the justice system centred on a purpose-built, $500 million courts precinct .

It said the new building would unify the Supreme, District, Youth and Coroners Courts in a single location.

In January, top barrister David Edwardson, QC, told The Advertiser that SA’s courts were the worst in the country due to government under-resourcing .

Later that month the Opposition announced that, if elected, it would integrate a justice system-wide IT upgrade with the already-proposed redevelopment .

The next day, the State Government revealed an upgrade of the archaic IT system would cost in excess of $50 million .

Yesterday, Mr Rau said the consortia would present their proposals in May for evaluation by a government panel, which would give its recommendations by August.

He said he was confident the successful consortia would be chosen by September, allowing for contracts to be signed in December.

Work would then begin in the first three months of 2015.

“We’ve been banging away at this for the best part of several years,” Mr Rau said.

“It’s been procurement in the ordinary fashion, according to regulations, and these are necessary steps.

“But this thing has been a long time coming and, as far as I’m concerned, it now has real momentum.”

He said the development would continue to progress through the election campaign despite the government being in caretaker mode.

“This is the result of decisions we made months ago, and it’s just ticking away on its own internal momentum,” he said.

“The next government, be it this government returned or a new government, will be making the final decision.”


The consortiums that could build the new courthouse.

Activate 40, comprised of:

— Capella Capital (Commercial Developer and Financier)

— Lend Lease Building Contractors (Contractor)

— Mott MacDonald Australia (Stakeholder, Design and Project Management)

— Aurecon (Civil, Structural, Security and Services Engineering)


CBUS, comprised of:

— CBUS Property (Commercial Developer and Financier)

— Probuild Constructions (Contractor)

— Architectus + GHD (Architect)

— Architectus + GHD + Oxigen (Urban Designer)


Investec, comprised of:

— Investec Bank (Commercial Developer and Financier)

— Built Environs (Contractor )

— Cox Architecture (Architect)

— Hames Sharley (Architect and Interior Designer)

— Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners (Architect)


A COURT ORDER

The timeline:

March 2014: Proposals formally requested from the three consortia.

May 2014: Consortia present their proposals to the Attorney-General’s Department.

June — July 2014: State Government panel evaluates the proposals.

August 2014: Government panel makes its recomm-endations about the proposals.

It's a Court building that, most likely for security reasons, they're not mixing with offices, so I can't see it even going close to 30 levels. They'll build as many as they need with provision for a bit of future-proofing.

I'm fine with it being mid-rise, but am holding out hope that we get something architecturally striking.

I'm sorry, but why do we need a 30+ story tower? Think practically here, Adelaide is having trouble filling out office space the city at the moment as is, why add to the burden? Let's build what is needed; nothing more, nothing less.

I saw that a couple of trees were being felled on site this morning as I went by on the tram.

Big infrastructure investments are usually under-valued and & over-criticized while in the planning stage. It's much easier to envision the here and now costs and inconveniences, and far more difficult to imagine fully the eventual benefits.

To be fair, it's been so long since that site had anything on it, I'm actually quite surprised it's not heritage listed and claimed as parklands... :roll:
