This building is weird, it looked 95% Trumpian today with all the clouds. Changes colour so much depending on the weather.

Opera House < Westin Perth.

Better let the tourists know they're photographing the wrong thing.

Had the weirdest dream last night where the entire Westin building tipped over/collapsed on the northern side. I was in the car with my family and i was screaming "mum, quick drive!" as a plume of dust and debris was coming toward us on Wellington street up near Perth Arena () there was even reasoning behind it something to do with shortcuts taken in the piling. 3 people died. Some sort of talk about they will rebuild it again. Strange.

What is the likelyhood of ANY building collapsing in Perth let alone within Australia for shortcuts taken in pilling or welding etc?

I have always wondered about what happens where some cities build high rises right on the edge of rivers or in canals etc and what would happen if they were built dodgy.

This one fell down because of soil being pilled up behind the building and water seeping through it... I didn't think you could dig out a basement anyway after a building was built. I guess however you can dig tunnels etc under buildings?

Westin Hotel to head CBD’s east end revival
Helen Shield
Wednesday, 17 May 2017 11:08AM


BGC Construction's Westin Hotel progress, the tower from Hay Street showing the Irwin Street side.

BGC’s $500 million, 28-level Westin Hotel development at 480 Hay Street is to spearhead a revival of the drab, shabby eastern side of Perth’s central business district.

The 360-room Westin’s drawcard landscaped food, drink and entertainment area, scheduled to open just weeks before the hotel next April, has been designed to merge seamlessly with the foyer of the five-star hotel, on the site of the old Perth Fire Station.

The development, in one of the least-loved areas of the CBD, has similar potential to Adrian Fini’s State Buildings revitalisation triumph, including the award-winning Treasury COMO hotel, Perth City Library and David Malcolm Justice Centre.

The Westin, bounded by Hay, Murray and Irwin streets, is a block from the Royal Perth Hospital and close to Victoria Square and is set to extend the clean, inviting space created by the nearby State Buildings, creating a welcoming, 24-hour entertainment precinct.

Perth Stadium is clearly visible from the upper floors.

BGC, which engaged place-making experts at RobertsDay, had worked through in detail plans for Hibernian Place, with street-level drawcard food, drink, restaurant, craft and convenience outlets to lure the 45,000 pedestrians expected to pass through the area each day.

Lease Equity’s Jim Tsagalis said, as well as a rooftop restaurant and bar on the Irwin Street side, there were a range of potential ground floor food and drink options, alfresco areas, potential for a cocktail bar, dine-in and takeaway options, and a downstairs late night jazz or blues venue.

The venues, from 100sqm to 600sqm, would be carefully curated to create a welcoming environment for hotel guests as well as locals, including doctors and nurses working all hours at Royal Perth Hospital.

An events program would likely prove a further attraction.

Demonstrating its long-term commitment to the building and the precinct, BGC will upgrade the heritage Hibernian Hall on Murray Street into a lounge bar-like venue, merging the historic building into the top-shelf component of the development.

A 22-level Hay Street office tower, part of the original hotel development, was on hold until a suitable tenant could be found.

However, Mr Tsagalis said, in the interim the office tower site would be landscaped, extending the public open space in the piazza near the hotel entry.

BGC acquired the land for $8 million under the then-State government’s hotel incentive scheme (it was valued at the time at $19 million to $26 million). BGC was proud of the high-quality development and its state-of-the art amenities which it was pitching as a “precinct for the people”.

“It’s going to create an active public space and central hub for the city’s east end,” Mr Tsagalis said.

“It’s a really exciting time for the city’s east end. We are at the very beginning of the gentrification of this area. Treasury has already hit benchmarks. With Northbridge, Perth City Link and Elizabeth Quay, it will all have a multiplier effect.”

Mr Tsagalis worked closely with Brookfield on 140William’s food and drink offering and on the vision for the stand-out Brookfield Place precinct.

Depending how the landscaped park space goes, it could be great if the city of Perth bought it and vested it as a park or Piazza.

Would the City of Perth be able to buy it at the subsidised price or market value apply? Looks like the FESA building could have been retained in a garden park setting and the hotel built on the unused car park.

The heritage Hibernian Hall is to covered by the hotel ballroom.
