Demolition work has started on the Chan building to give way for the redevelopment of Darwin’s Civic and State Square precinct, part of the $200 million Darwin City Deal.

McMahon Services Australia (NT), a local contractor, has been awarded a $2 million contract to undertake the demolition of one of the Darwin CBD’s ugliest buildings.

The demolition alone will support more than 50 jobs, according to the Minister for Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics. It is expected to be finished by the middle of the year.

As part of the $200 million City Deal, Civic and State Square will be overhauled to make it “more attractive” to the community and for tourists, with large lawns, an art gallery, garden, and café space.

Charles Darwin University City Campus, Austin Lane Revamp, and State Square Art Gallery are among the $200 million City Deal projects ready to start or out for public tender or about to be released.

Member for Port Darwin, Paul Kirby said the redevelopment would provide a boost for local businesses.

“The Masterplan celebrates the Territory’s rich history, and aims to tell the stories of the landscapes that transcends into a public space designed to be highly memorable, rejuvenating and ever changing for our community and visitors,” Mr Kirby said.
