i didn't think griffin tower was going ahead until BHP was finished anyways. Would be a logistical nightmare constructing BHP with griffin going ahead at the same time!

Speaking of resi towers, that article says luke saracini is waiting for the govts waterfront plans before he goes ahead with 18 the esplanade so maybe resi is still on the table.

The latest feeling in the economics world is that WA might escape the worst ravages of the economic crisis due to Chinese and Indian demand, and even if problems start to emerge in China chances are that things will be improving elsewhere by then anyway. I would say it is now at worst 50/50 whether WA will go into recession at all.

Living away from Perth for the last two and a half years I can really see the changes every time I go back now. Such things as new buildings, bars, restuarants and residents in the CBD are really starting to change things for the better. Attitudes to things like longer trading hours have changed hugely since the referendum.
I put most of the improvements down to a combination of immigrants bringing new ideas to the city, returning expats bringing back what they have learned elsewhere and extra travel by the locals opening minds to alternatives.

I really have high hopes for inner city Perth over the next decade or so. The city does not have the same physical limitations that affect Sydney and Brisbane CBDs (or transport issues) so I see no reason why the population shouldn't continue to grow at over 10% for that period. If the city council and the state government can agree to new projects such as tram lines, foreshore redevelopment and rail line sinking the inner city should grow even further beyond that.

Roll on Perth!
Perth (COP) and Vincent are approx 2000 ppl per sq km, where as in sydney amd melb there inner city pop is between 10000-15000 ppl per sq km, so Perth deff has potential. Its also a good property investment opportunity as well.

Couldnt agree more. Apart from nickle and exploration (drilling) the resource sector is still ticking along very nicely. Our business has had a solid year of growth from our WA customers, but Africa is FLAT OUT booming atm!!

Yeah, I saw your update in the Updates Thread - wow!

Could just be a better render but I agree, that looks so much better than the original we saw.


Hold on...this is depicted from Hay St right?

Don't think so, hack. It's either from the tree that's in the way or is a light?

I meant the turret-style roof of the building to the right of that photo. Compare that to the render, which has a completely flat roof.

Hold on...there's a start of a turret at the far left of the render.

Woot! Never mind
