Brookfield Properties receives approval to develop two towers in Perth, Australia

WCN Editorial Team 27 Oct 2020 OCEANIA BUILDINGS

Brookfield Properties has secured development approval for the construction of two towers in Perth, Australia.

The towers of 58 and 21 stories each will be developed on Lots 5 and 6 at Elizabeth Quay.

To be located at Perth's landmark waterfront precinct, the project is worth $367m, and is expected to create 2,500 jobs during the construction phase, which will support Western Australia's Covid-19 economic recovery.

The towers have been designed by New York-based architects Rex in consultation with local firm Hassell.

The towers will provide 52,000m2 of office space, 1,800 m2 of dining and retail space, 237 apartments and 84 hotel rooms.

The complete upper section of the 58-storey tower will be cantilevered to extend from the lower portion.

This new project will complement Brookfield's adjoining $360m Chevron tower as well as the $300m EQ West tower, both of which are under construction now.

Western Australia Premier Mark McGowan said: "This promises to be a landmark development for our city, in what is another sign that confidence is returning to Western Australia's economy.

“The two towers will generate thousands of jobs during construction and many more ongoing jobs. As we continue on the path to recovery, my Government will continue to support projects that boost the State's economy while generating life and vitality in the city."

Lands Minister Ben Wyatt said: "The 2,500 construction jobs created by this project will add to the employment opportunities already delivered through ongoing construction at Elizabeth Quay, and the 10,000 jobs expected from the recently announced $1.5 billion Perth City Deal.”
