Is this the office tower or the full development of the plaza?

Yes just the carpark for now & yes I agree it’s going to be slow. They still have to dig out the whole 5 levels underground plus winter/rain to come.. see article below.

One of the largest earthworks contracts in South Australia’s construction history has been awarded as a key Riverbank project continues to gather pace.

Walker Corporation has handed a $30 million contract to national civil contractor Delta Group for its $500 million development at Festival plaza, which will deliver arts upgrades, a new carpark and office tower as part of the project now known as Festival Square.

A new 1600-space, five-level underground carpark will be the focus of the contract — which has resulted in Delta opening an office and yard in Adelaide off the back of being awarded it.

As part of the contract, Delta will move an estimated 130,000m3 of material from the site in a 14-month program, drilling 15m into the ground.

Walker Corporation South Australia Senior Development Manager Ben Moore said this would get the site ready for the construction of the carpark this year.

“We only started work in May of last year when we were formally provided access to the site, so it’s been a very busy work schedule since then,” he said.

“The demolition and excavation process is literally huge, it’s creating an enormous space that is starting to give a sense of the scale of the development.

5 level underground car park right next to the Torrens, let’s hope spray on concrete is not the answer.
