North Terrace Redevelopment
North Terrace Redevelopment
The master plan established a generous pedestrian zone along the north side of the street which both has sufficient integrity and strength to read as a single place, yet be responsive to the many urban conditions which abut the Terrace.

About

The North Terrace Precincts Redevelopment masterplan provides a vision for the entire length of North Terrace including forecourts to the adjacent cultural institutions and University.

The $60 million plan (2001) establishes guiding principles and design outcomes which form the basis of all current and future stages of the project. The foundation principle was to establish a generous pedestrian zone along the north side of the street which both has sufficient integrity and strength to read as a single place, yet be responsive to the many urban conditions that abut the Terrace.

Attention to detail and the use of quality durable materials have created an environment befitting the cultural significance of this iconic space within the City of Adelaide.
