Positive Outcomes

Since its establishment, the Capital City Committee has delivered, facilitated and funded many successful projects for Adelaide and the people of South Australia.

These initiatives were diverse, such as supporting development of the Adelaide co work scene, piloting projects for a ‘vibrant and safe’ West End, continuing sustainability projects, and supporting Festivals Adelaide and Renew Adelaide.

The diversity of projects the committee has been associated with demonstrates its broad remit for the city’s strategic development. Projects have also included the redevelopment of North Terrace, pioneering sustainability projects, facilitation of student accommodation, the creation of an urban forest and support for the inaugural Adelaide Thinker in Residence.
