Defining designs | Project WA
A significant transformation of one of the most
historically important and iconic sites in the
Perth CBD is well underway at the Cathedral +
Bordered by St Georges Terrace, Barrack Street,
Hay Street and Pier Street, the project involves the
restoration of the Treasury buildings, a new 33-level
office tower, and the new City of Perth Library
by Kerry Hill Architects, plus the refurbishment
of 565 Hay Street by Cameron Chisholm & Nicol,
construction of the new St George’s Chambers, and
an upgrade to St George’s Plaza.
The first major civic building to be built since the
Perth Concert Hall 40 years ago, the City of Perth
Library will be spread out over five levels.
The restored Treasury Buildings will make way
for a luxury hotel with a day spa, gym and pool
facility, plus a vibrant mix of retail and hospitality
offerings, including a glass rooftop restaurant.
Retail on the ground floor of 565 Hay Street will
enjoy the busy streetfront foot traffic, while the rest
of the building will provide approximately 7500sqm
of Grade A commercial office space over 11 levels,
including the ground-floor lobby.
COST In excess of $580 million
TIMELINE Completion due 2015
