Gawler Place Upgrade – Home of the Pigeon

City of Adelaide, ProcurePM, WGA, URPS, BMD

25,000+ daily pedestrians travelling between Grenfell Street and North Terrace, makes Gawler Place one of Adelaide’s busiest streets. It connects city workers, students, visitors, tourists, delivery and private vehicles to key cultural and retail destinations and public transport.

Gawler Place Upgrade creates an important link to the heart of Rundle Mall precinct. A street that was once dominated by vehicles and taxis, is now a people-focused street, providing high-quality retail and outdoor dining experiences.

Generous footpaths, lush-paved surfaces, a green arbour, tree planting throughout, integrated lighting and artistic furniture and public art has transformed Gawler Place into an inviting and attractive destination.

 It is also now home to the Pigeon. The Pigeon artwork builds on Adelaide’s reputation as a place of culture, creativity and innovation. Carefully located to surprise and delight, this engaging artwork has attracted many admirers.
