Over the weekend the WA Government announced that development approval had been secured for a 54 -storey toner on Lot 4 at Elizabeth Quay, the last remaining lot for future developments. The tower, being developed by the CA Corporation, will likely be the fifth tallest tower in the CBD once its finished, and will cost $400 million to deliver.
According to this article in The West, the tower actually exceeds maximum height limits by 18 storeys, but who’s counting?
The building will be located on the corner of The Esplanade and William Street, delivering 70,000sqm of office space and 176 short-stay accommodation units, along with a bunch of amenities including a restaurant, bar, café, gym, rooftop pool and child-care centre.
It’s expected to create hundreds of jobs.
“Once all the developments are built, Elizabeth Quay is expected to be home to up to 2,000 residents and host around 10,000 city workers… The continued development of Elizabeth Quay will see the creation of thousands of construction jobs over the coming years,” said Lands Minister Tony Buti.
“On completion, this vibrant waterfront destination will play a pivotal role in supporting CBD businesses and furthering Perth’s growth as a thriving modern city – delivering jobs and economic opportunities to continue driving our State’s growth into the future.”
