Riverside’s new commercial, retail, living,
entertainment and recreation opportunities
will encourage West Australians to interact with
one of Perth’s most unique and valuable assets
– the Swan River.
Plans from the Metropolitan Redevelopment
Authority (MRA) and other key landowners
will deliver more than 90,000sqm of
commercial and retail space, plus a vibrant
mixed-use precinct of offices, shops, cafes,
bars and restaurants, providing work for
approximately 6000 people.
The Riverside project includes the
Waterbank precinct to be delivered by Lend
Lease. With direct Swan River frontage and
views, Waterbank will include a natural beach
area, public promenades, a large wetland, and
direct connection from Hay Street to the Swan
River via a new pier.
Located opposite the historic Queens
Garden, the $450 million Queens Riverside
development by Frasers Property Australia
is well underway, with Fraser Suites Perth
offering new hotel accommodation options in
East Perth, and the second of four buildings –
a 26-storey residential tower – scheduled for
completion mid- to late 2014.
Further west, the MRA is currently seeking
a developer for the former Chemistry Centre
site. The future mixed-use development is
expected to see heritage buildings adapted to
incorporate new residential accommodation,
a supermarket and a bustling high street for the
growing East Perth community.
COST $2.1 billion
TIMELINE Estimated completion 2020 onwards
“Waterbank will include a natural beach area,
public promenades and a large wetland.”
