That parliament house building would probably equal the Opera House for tourism drawcard merits by now. Splendid.

I think the clock tower could easily be retrofitted to the station right now.

Building clocks isn't one of PTA's strengths.

Is the Barnett government still suffering from a hangover from winning the election in a landslide? Is there much they havn't cocked up lately?

Wasn't it like announced already back in March, but the city council rejected it for being too tall at 11 stories high, bulky and over shaddowing the bell tower.

My guess the hotel would be built at 6 stories tall and take up double the land it would take up if it were built at 11 stories.

Maybe that day was chosen to fit in with this:

Chevron are buying a site in Elizabeth Quay. No commitment to build a tower but have made the purchase because they're getting it at a good price and it gives them options in the future.

Just heard today that they are starting to ramp a huge program of works with Gorgon getting ready to transition to operations and Wheatstone getting ready for ramp up. Certainly won't be leaving Perth anywhere soon. Hopefully they buy this site and hopefully they put a nice tower on it for themselves.

Well this is good news because there is no way that land will come without a caveat to build within 24 months.

A good price today? To pay off some government debt perhaps? :P
