Perth showcases new hotel and infrastructure developments

Perth is undergoing a period of rapid expansion that is aimed at transforming Western Australia's social and cultural landscape.

Two projects for the central business district (CBD) include Elizabeth Quay and Perth City Link, with the public realm of the Elizabeth Quay development due for completion by the end of the year. The development will cover nearly 10 hectares and feature a 2.8 hectare inlet surrounded by landscaped terraces, boardwalks and promenades fringed by shops, cafes, restaurants and other entertainment venues, located minutes away from the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. 

This month sees the launch of the luxury hotel COMO The Treasury, opening at the redeveloped Cathedral and Treasury Precinct, one of the most historically important and iconic sites in the Perth CBD.

Located within the Elizabeth Quay development will be the upcoming Ritz-Carlton, expected to open in 2018 and nearby the DoubleTree byHilton Perth Waterfront, set to open in 2017. In addition, Crown Perth has transformed into a fully-integrated tourism resort with two hotels and work progressing on the six-star, 500-room luxury property Crown Towers, due to open at the start of 2017.

The Crown Perth Events and Conference Centre development will provide approximately 4,800sqm of new multi-purpose venue space.

These new developments are being showcased in a new Perth product video that can be viewed on Perth Convention Bureau's website.
