The demolition of the old Entertainment Centre has now begun, to make way for the Perth City Link project. I have to say I’m personally a little sad to see the old girl go – I remember going to a concert with my grandmother there when I was little, but I am really hoping that this means we are getting a step closer to a real, working concert venue.
“Perth City Link – a project that will reconnect the CBD with Northbridge for the first time in 100 years – is moving from vision to reality,” Premier Colin Barnett said. “This is a project that will benefit everyone, locals and tourists alike, and is expected to attract more than $3billion of private investment into our State.The State Government is working closely with Seven in the delivery of the Perth City Link project and we are pleased to confirm our ‘in-principle’ approval for their development plans.”
When complete, Perth City Link will provide 1,650 new apartments for more than 3,000 new city residents, and isexpected to create jobs for over 13,000 workers in 244,000sqm of new commercial and retail space.
