Perth CBD Expansion Project – Elizabeth Quay

By August 9, 2012 No Comments

Elizabeth Quay (formerly Perth Waterfront) is a $2.6billion project that will return the city’s focus to the iconic Swan River and enhance Perth’s reputation as one of the most liveable cities in the world. It is the centrepiece of a bold plan to revitalise central Perth.

Delivered by the State Government and supported by the City of Perth, Elizabeth Quay will cover nearly 10 hectares of prime riverfront land between Barrack and William streets in the heart of the city. The project will create a magnificent precinct featuring a 2.7 hectare inlet surrounded by a split level promenade, shops, cafes, restaurants and other exciting entertainment venues.

The project will provide new inner-city residential options as well as much-needed hotel and short-stay accommodation, and significant additional commercial space. It is one of several major urban developments being undertaken that will help to further position Perth as contemporary, international city.

Elizabeth Quay has moved into delivery phase – funding has been committed, works have commenced on site and the procurement of works and supply contracts is underway. The public realm around the waterfront inlet will be available for public use in mid-2015, in advance of the completion of private sector developments. Whether you’re a local or a tourist visiting for work, rest or recreation, Elizabeth Quay will be a destination for everyone.

When complete, Elizabeth Quay will be an exciting destination that offers a range of activities to attract people of all ages, at all times of the year.
