A new place to meet
Whether you live in the city, commute in to work or just visit to shop and enjoy entertainment, you’re sure to enjoy the new Perth City Link area.
With a cosmopolitan mix of shopping, business, dining, entertainment, play areas, transport and new housing, there really will be something for everyone. One third of the area will be devoted to public spaces, which will include sheltered sections for winter and places to keep cool in summer.
New connections through Kings Square
In the heart of Perth City Link, Kings Square will link the popular strips of King Street in Perth and Lake Street in Northbridge.
Home to commercial tenants HBF and Shell as well as cafes, bars, a gym and childcare centre, Kings Square - developed by project partner Leighton Properties - is the city's newest commercial and retail precinct. A further two residential buildings are planned for the area which, once completed, will be among the tallest residential buildings in Perth.
Explore Yagan Square
Yagan Square is due to open in 2017 and is set to become an iconic destination in Perth.
This pedestrian square is one of the main public spaces in the project area, sitting within the arms of heritage listed Horseshoe Bridge. Yagan Square will be uniquely Western Australian, with a permanent food market, native gardens, play areas, cafes, restaurants and Aboriginal art.

An estimated 80,000 people are expected to move through Yagan Square each day.
Enjoy the bustling Perth Arena entertainment precinct
Some of the world’s biggest names in music, sport and entertainment have already appeared at Perth Arena, a 15,500 seat multi-purpose arena which opened in 2012.
Since then, Perth Arena has been ranked at number 22 in the world’s top 200 venues in a list compiled by music industry magazine Pollstar. A new plaza surrounding the arena will provide even more entertainment options, including new places to enjoy a drink or meal before or after a show.
Next to the Arena will be a new hotel and entertainment precinct, featuring a 250-room Dorsett Hotel as well as new cafes, bars and public spaces featuring art and alfresco dining.
Tree-lined streets and promenades
As part of the Perth City Link project, Wellington Street will be transformed from just a busy road to a linear park. Four lanes of traffic and a cycle path will still provide easy access to the city, but the area will be given new life with trees, public art, grassed areas and a 14m wide pedestrian promenade.
