Future designs | Projects WA
One of the largest projects in the State, covering 40ha. The design by HASSELL will turn East Perth into
a cosmopolitan mecca and maximise river access with a man-made beach, inlet and kayak-launching
facilities. A ferry terminal is a possibility in the future. A mix of the usual suspects like cafes, bars, shops
and offices will swell the population by 5800 residents and 1700 employees.
Several key developments will play a role in transforming the eastern gateway to the city. The
flagship $1 billion Waterbank precinct, adjacent to Causeway Bridge, will include a shopping quarter
and landmark tower at the entrance to the city. Lend Lease takes occupancy of the site and will start
building works in 2013. Additionally, the $450 million Queens Riverside development includes a
236-suite luxury hotel by Frasers Property Group, which is scheduled for completion in 2012 and
which will deliver much-needed short-stay accommodation for Perth.
COST $3.5 billion
