South Perth a city on the rise


Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - South Perth - Su­sanne Reilly

THERE’S a chance the South Perth sky­line could soon mir­ror that of the CBD across the river, with a large num­ber of high-rise de­vel­op­ments ap­proved re­cently.

Fol­low­ing the an­nounce­ment that Fin­bar plans to build a $300 mil­lion de­vel­op­ment fea­tur­ing a 30-level apart­ment build­ing, another 20-storey pro­posal by ZoneQ In­vest­ments, 300 me­tres down the road, was ap­proved by the De­vel­op­ment As­sess­ment Panel (DAP). At the same DAP meet­ing, ap­proval was also granted for a six-storey build­ing op­po­site Fin­bar’s de­vel­op­ment.

City of South Perth Mayor Sue Do­herty said res­i­dents had mostly em­braced the pro­posed de­vel­op­ments.

She said the de­vel­op­ments would be in the South Perth sta­tion precinct, which com­prised the land be­tween Richard­son and Dar­ley streets to the south and east, and Scott Street and Frasers Lane to the north.

“Well-de­signed de­vel­op­ments of ex­cep­tional ar­chi­tec­tural de­sign qual­ity, such as those re­cently ap­proved in the precinct, will con­trib­ute to the vi­brancy and at­trac­tive­ness of the area,” she said.
