Presenting an exciting new future for Perth’s ‘epicentre of culture’.
As part of the Perth City Deal, $20 million has been allocated to the rejuvenation of the Perth Cultural Centre (PCC) with both the Australian Government and State Government committing $10 million each to the project.
This investment will rejuvenate the Perth Cultural Centre precinct to create vibrant, safe and attractive areas to connect Perth’s cultural institutions and the surrounds, delivering improved liveability, cultural and tourism outcomes for the
Immediate works include the development of a preliminary masterplan for the precinct, including ambient lighting, improved security, signage, landscaping and upgraded entrances to the precinct.
The Cultural Precinct Taskforce has been established to guide the overall direction of the project. The Taskforce is chaired by the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Tourism; Culture and the Arts; Heritage, Ms Jessica Shaw MLA, and is comprised
of key representatives from:
As lead delivery agency, DLGSC has engaged the services of architects Taylor Robinson Chaney Broderick and landscape architects Taylor Cullity Lethlean to lead the development of the masterplan.
Engagement is currently underway to develop a starting point for further master planning and subsequent implementation. Project objectives, visioning statements and ‘key moves’ are being developed to guide potential interventions and opportunities
for redevelopment of the PCC.
The Cultural Precinct Taskforce has been engaged throughout development of the project. Other key government agencies, PCC institutions and major surrounding attractions, a Whadjuk Elder Reference Group, the arts sector, local businesses and community groups are also being engaged.
To support development of the preliminary masterplan, a series of objectives and ‘key moves’ have been developed as shown below.
Six ‘key moves’ outline the large conceptual changes that will take place to rejuvenate the Perth Cultural Centre:
The State Government has allocated an additional $15 million in funding to deliver an expanded redevelopment of the PCC.
The precinct will undergo a $35 million rejuvenation, with a $25 million State Government contribution. The remaining $10 million is a contribution from the Australian Government as part of the $1.7 billion Perth City Deal.
The PCC Masterplan has now been released, following a lengthy consultation process and detailed consideration by the Cultural Precinct Taskforce.
Also now available is a virtual tour of the rejuvenated site.
The project will see the PCC transformed into a connected, thriving and welcoming precinct that connects the major cultural institutions in the area.
