Perth Cultural Centre Set For $35 Million Revamp
The announcements following last week’s 2022-23 State Budget continue flowing thick and fast, with news coming over the weekend the Perth Cultural Centre (PCC) will be getting a $35 million facelift.
The McGowan Government has committed a further $15 million to the project, in addition to $20 million of joint State-Commonwealth investment.
The project’s aim is to enhance connection between WA Museum Boola Bardip, the Art Gallery of Western Australia, State Library and State Theatre Centre, as outlined in the PCC Masterplan.
The freshen up will include new broad and shady central spaces, the demolition of the amphitheatre and increased accessibility, while at the eastern end the AGWA car park will be demolished.
“We don’t need new public spaces: instead we are rejuvenating our existing precincts to make them people friendly, places where people want to visit and stay”, said Perth Minister For Housing; Lands; Homelessness & Local Government John Carey. “Urban design is critical factor in making that happen.
No start date on the project has been committed yet, but you can learn more about it via the Department of Local Government, Sport & Cultural Industries Website.
