FAQ on the proposed Performing Arts Centre

leave a comment »

Council adopted the concept, submitted by Harmer Architecture, which is very impressive and look ‘outside the square’ to ensure Council’s requirement of a visually dynamic building is fulfilled.

The concept links the Wangaratta Exhibitions Gallery with the proposed Performing Arts Centre as well as establishing a new iconic building. The concept takes advantage of the views to the Anglican Cathedral, providing a focal point for a restaurant and strengthens connections with the new Joined Up Government Centre.

The proposed development will have a high degree of flexibility and caters for the performing arts, conventions, conferences, community events, exhibitions, weddings, balls and other functions.

The new building has been designed to maximise energy efficiencies. It will also preserve car parking space and gives scope for temporary function spaces to be placed on site.

A large viewing screen can also be added to the new building at the Ford Street entry point that can be used for street events.

The total project cost is estimated to be $7.5 million, with the bulk of the funding to be provided by the State government.

Since Council adopted the Harmer concept considerable interest has been shown in the project and a number of questions have been raised. Council has put together a FAQ (frequently asked questions) sheet to assit our community to further understand the project.
