Defining designs | Project WA
Thousands of people are re-engaging with the Perth
Cultural Centre, thanks to an investment of more
than $35 million by the State Government through
the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA)
and the Department of Culture and the Arts.
The project has already seen the installation of an
urban orchard on a carpark rooftop, a giant Cultural
Centre Screen and children’s play space, plus free
WiFi, improved lighting, security and signage,
and new retail pods. Events, festivals, community
planting days and public art are just a few elements
that are attracting new groups of people to the city
– in particular, families and children. The Perth
Cultural Centre will also be home to the state’s new
$428 million museum.
The neighbouring heritage-listed William
Street precinct is home to a niche strip of
independent retailers, small bars and restaurants,
as well as creative-industry tenants.
In 2015, the precinct will also welcome
Hotel Alex, a 74-room hotel being developed
by Adrian Fini, Nic Trimboli, David Martin,
Miles Hull and Howard Cearns.
COST $35 million
