Historic East Perth Power Station released to market

  • East Perth Power Station

We are seeking expressions of interest to develop the historic East Perth Power Station into an iconic mixed-use, waterfront destination.

The East Perth Power Station project area is an 8.5 hectare site located between East Parade, Summers Street, the Swan River and the Graham Farmer Freeway.

From site today, Premier Colin Barnett said the release of the East Perth Power Station site was the first step in a long-term redevelopment plan, following the announcement of the State property asset sales program.

“We are looking to gauge market interest in this important precinct and are seeking innovative proposals on future development that will create, prioritise and maintain community access to the site,” Mr Barnett said.

“The site’s proximity to the CBD, key transport hubs, the new Perth Stadium and proposed Burswood Peninsula development, offers developers an opportunity to capitalise on the exceptional transport accessibility and increasing residential population.”

Planning Minister John Day said the vision was to deliver a facility that embraces the rich culture and history of the site, activates the riverfront and creates a premium inner-city destination with a mix of living, working and leisure opportunities.

“We recognise that there is a very high level of community interest in the future of the former East Perth Power Station and we are seeking developers that share our vision of retaining, conserving and providing public access to this iconic heritage building.”

Future development of the site will celebrate the heritage of the former power station building, ensuring the social and cultural value of the site is preserved and interpreted for future generations to enjoy.
