The MCC Plaza is defined as the public realm surrounded by Marion Cultural Centre (MCC) to the east, South Australian Aquatic and Leisure Centre (SAALC), Centrelink and GP Plus to the west. Located to the south is Westfield with pedestrian and vehicle connections along Warracowie Way and Milham Street.
The MCC Plaza vision and objectives endorsed for community engagement is as follows.
The Marion Cultural Centre (MCC) Plaza provides an opportunity to create an active public realm that enhances the Regional Centre as a destination, supporting community activities, social engagement and the visitor economy.
To enhance activity, amenity and accessibility to and within the precinct the following design principles were considered in the concept plans:
The proposed development builds on Council’s $5 million investment in the area which includes the recent development of Dwyer Rd Reserve and streetscape improvements that enhance community connections to public transport and the regional centre.
