I'm wary of this. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
The Marshall Government will replace the Riverbank Authority with an advisory committee populated by nearby property owners and occupiers and the city council.

Roger Cook AM, one of the founders of the Australian commercial real estate giant Colliers International, will chair the Riverbank Entertainment Precinct Advisory Committee (REPAC).

Cook has a long history in the development and real estate industries and has served as chairman of the board of the Motor Accident Commission.

The committee will report directly to the Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government Stephan Knoll, unlike its predecessor, which exerted a more direct managerial role over the Riverbank Precinct.

Knoll will appoint a representative each from SkyCity Casino, the InterContinental Hotel, Adelaide Convention Centre, Adelaide Festival Centre, the Adelaide Oval Stadium Management Authority, the Adelaide City Council and Renewal SA to sit on the committee.

What's the reason for the change? I seemed to be of the (laypersons) opinion that things were happening and getting done there on the riverbank ...

You're right. One of the key men was John Hanlon, the RenewalSA boss. A very driven man who has made sure plans for the area were seen through.

There are no distinct reasons provided in the article other than this: 'REPAC will advise on major capital projects, the development of a Precinct Master Plan, coordinating events, signage, lighting, branding and marketing for the precinct, which extends from Bowden to Hackney.

“The Committee will be charged with providing advice about how best to maximise the massive economic and job creation potential that exists within our Riverbank precinct,” Knoll said in a statement to InDaily.'

I just don't see the need for the change, and I certainly don't see any need to include someone from the ACC.

reading between the lines of what political scribes have been talking about (Mike Smithson et al) the Libs have been targeting what they considered Labor jobs for mates.

Not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but in this instance I don't even know the repercussions,

So much for 'getting on with the job of governing'. Not like the Libs can talk about jobs for mates - Rob Lucas is a prime example.

The car park is almost completely demolished except for a few bays right up against King William Rd.

It’ll be interesting to see how much they get done by Christmas once the sites cleared.

Hey guys, it has been far too long since I was last on this forum! Glad to see nothing has changed!

What's the approx date of this one being completed/opened to the public? Also, is it expected to be delayed?

Stage 1 by 2020
Stage 2 by 2022 . This entails the retail parts of it and the office tower

Does anyone know if they ended up saving the sculptures? There was talk that they were going to install them elsewhere.

City Sign / Hajek Plaza / Adelaide Urban Iconography? No. It was designed to be a single artwork, so selectively saving and moving individual parts was not desirable, and some of it was in severe disrepair sadly.

A couple of the short posts were definitely removed prior to the rest of the demolition. There was talk about using them elsewhere but not sure if there are concrete (excuse the pun) plans or not.

The best info I can find is on the Adelaide Riverbank website but I don't know how often it's updated?

Thanks Stryker and Melonhead for the great pics - really goes to show what a huge site the Festival Plaza is - it kinda feels like a huge part of the city centre is being reconstructed (and I guess it is!). If they get this right - the urban elements of the plaza itself, the retail component, the aesthetics of the tower and tenancy mix and the right links to the casino, station, riverfront etc. it will be a real game changer for Adelaide.
