Civic Precinct (Stage 1)
The Civic Precinct, or Stage 1 of LIVING CITY, comprises the multi-purpose civic building, 500 space multi-level car park, Food Pavilion and a market square. The site is bounded by Best Street, Fenton Way, Rooke Street and Oldaker Streets.
Construction on Stage 1 commenced in June 2016 and is being funded by Council, State and Federal contributions.
The multi-purpose civic building will be home to a state-of-the-art new Devonport LINC (library), Service Tasmania, community meeting rooms, Council offices and a 800 seat conference & convention centre.
The Food Pavilion will be known as Providore Place and feature a number of restaurants, distillery and multi-level space capable of hosting food markets and events.
Completion of the Civic Precinct in April 2018 will free up land for the future Retail and Waterfront precinct developments.
Construction is being undertaken by local builder Fairbrother and is progressing well. You can view the live webcams of the Stage 1 construction site here.
