Current status

The City of Adelaide is targeting commencement of works on the Central Market Arcade site as early as 2020.

Development process

The City of Adelaide is undertaking a multi-stage Expression of Interest (EOI) process to identify a development partner for the Central Market Arcade site.

The Stage 1 of the EOI process was released in 2017 and included a local, national and international call-out to the development industry. The City of Adelaide shortlisted developers/consortia from the Stage 1 EOI.

The Stage 2 process involved the shortlisted developers/consortia subsequently preparing development proposals.

The City of Adelaide is continuing to work through detailed proposals for the site with a view to realising the site vision, redevelopment objectives and guiding principles. 

Selection and announcement of the preferred proponent is anticipated during mid 2019 subject to Council consideration.

Trading in the lead-up to redevelopment

While working towards securing a development partner, Council is working closely with the Central Market Arcade Traders Association and traders to support the existing Central Market Arcade. You’ll find details of forthcoming activities and campaigns at the Central Market Arcade Facebook page and website
