No, part of the state's agreement with Walker Corp was that we'd spend $180 million on the plaza's (and Station Rd) public realm with only a $40 million contribution from Walker Corp. IIRC, that's in addition to the state's $90 million repairs and upgrade to the Festival Centre, northern promenade and new railway station plaza/casino entrance. It always seemed like a dud deal to me, because although Walker Corp is contributing $40 million to the public realm and paying for the carpark, they still got grade-A free land for a 27 storey tower (which is more than double the height of what was initially permitted). For the privilege they should've been fully paying for the plaza.
All high-rise, low-rise and street developments in the Adelaide and North Adelaide areas.
