$35 million has been allocated to the rejuvenation of the Perth Cultural Centre.
As part of the Perth City Deal which also includes the New Swan River Bridge, a further $15 million has been allocated from the McGowan Government on top of the $20 million from both the Australian Government and State Government to the rejuvenation of the Perth Cultural Centre (PCC) project.
“The McGowan Government’s commitment to this project will see the PCC transformed into a more vibrant, welcoming and accessible place for Western Australians and tourists alike.”Mark McGowan
This investment will rejuvenate the Perth Cultural Centre precinct to create vibrant, safe and attractive areas to connect Perth’s cultural institutions and the surrounds, delivering improved liveability, cultural and tourism outcomes for the city.
Immediate works include the development of a preliminary master plan for the precinct, including ambient lighting, improved security, signage, landscaping and upgraded entrances to the precinct.
Watch: Perth Cultural Centre Master Plan Flythrough
The Perth Cultural Centre master plan includes the development of a new broad and shady central space to provide the precinct with a new focal point.
The works will also include the demolition of the amphitheatre and development of a more accessible, graded streetscape.
At the eastern end of the PCC, an Art Gallery of Western Australia (AGWA) car park will be demolished to introduce better connections to Beaufort Street and create a new children’s play place.
The project will deliver enhanced lighting and security, open up under-utilised spaces, and create a better environment for families and tourists visiting the area.
