The State Government has marked the start of construction on the first commercial building in the heart of the Perth City Link project. Planning Minister John Day said the plans for Kings Square, developed by Leighton Properties, represented a significant investment in the future of Perth. The Perth City Link will reconnect Perth’s CBD with Northbridge for the first time in more than 100 years.

“In total, Kings Square will contain 95,000sqm of office space, 7,000sqm of retail and community spaces and 520 apartments, responding to the growing demand for new commercial, residential and retail development in the city,” Mr Day said. Development approval has now been confirmed for four buildings with a number of major tenants and funding partners also secured. The first three commercial buildings are due for completion in mid-2015.

In addition, the State Government has marked two other significant project milestones: the shortlisting of proponents to construct the underground bus station; and the first train is expected to travel through the new rail tunnel in July 2013.

Together with Elizabeth Quay, Riverside and the revitalisation of the Perth Cultural Centre, Perth City Link is a key part of the Government’s vision to transform Perth and deliver much-needed places for people to live, work and visit.
