674-678 & 680-692 (Lots 100 & 101) Hay Street Mall, Perth. Demolition of Existing Development and Construction of a 24 Level Mixed-Use
Development Comprising a Mixed-Use Podium and a 17 Level Office and Education Tower Building - Bonus Plot Ratio​

DETAILS

Approval is sought for the demolition of the current development on the site, known as Carillon City’, including the newly installed pedestrian bridge linking the site to Forrest Chase/Padbury Walk, and the Hay Street Mall entry to the Carillon food court.

The proposed redevelopment of the site includes the construction of a new 24-level development that will consist of two basement levels, a six-level retail, hospitality and entertainment centre, and a 17-level office tower above the podium. A new pedestrian bridge linking to Forrest Chase/Padbury Walk is also proposed adjacent to the eastern side of the site.

The applicant has explained that the development maintains the existing street
building height line to both malls, and concentrates activity to the street. It removes and replaces the existing tower to Murray Street Mall with a more contemporary, efficient and transparent tower and will bookmark Forrest Place as a key urban civic space while providing a small extension to the public realm, embellishing the role of Forrest Place as a natural cross section in the city.

The basement level will include a loading area, 50 tenant car parking bays and end of trip facilities. Vehicle access to the site will be from Wellington Street via the Forrest Place loading dock and a new vehicle tunnel under the Murray Street Mall. This will require works to the Forrest Place loading dock with minor impacts on the public realm above during construction of the tunnel.

The development will maintain pedestrian arcades through the site (‘Carillon Lane’ and ‘Carillon Walk’). The applicant has advised that the new walkways will offer more streamlined routes, clearer wayfinding, with more central vertical transport than those existing, and together with more diverse uses, provide a substantially enhanced pedestrian experience. The lower levels of the podium element will incorporate a range of uses including specialty shops and flagship retailers, ‘Business Services’, a variety of food and beverage offerings, a tavern, small bar and consulting rooms. Recreation facilities (‘Recreation & Leisure’ uses) such as a bowling alley and an e-games studio, are proposed to be located on Level 3 of the development. A cinema/theatre complex is proposed on Levels 4-8 including incidental retail and lounge areas, where food and beverages, including liquor, may be served and/or purchased.

The tower is proposed to be used for tertiary education purposes (‘Education 2’) and ‘Office’ uses and will incorporate lobby space at the Murray Street Mall and Hay Street Mall levels, with a ‘sky lobby’ at upper levels. The proposal is seeking 20% bonus plot ratio for the provision of public facilities on private land, specifically for providing strategic pedestrian links (arcades) and landscaped public spaces at the Murray Street Mall entry (the Carillon Lane entry and Terraced Garden) and on the upper podium level (Carillon Common).

The spaces have been designed by landscape architects, with the theme of the spaces extending throughout the development. The green spaces are surrounded by active uses that maximise pedestrian interest. The spaces integrate seating, softscape, and hardscape in unison with adjacent tenancies. The treatment of the Carillon Common extends through that entire level, to enhance the perception of scale and its public nature. The applicant has provided a Landscape Design Concept (Attachment C) as part of the application which provides further details on the design of the proposed public spaces.

This is a complicated document, does this mean that there will be undercover pedestrian access from the Cultural Centre entry to the station concourse all the way to the waterfront via Trinity Arcade and Allendale Square?

Page 8
Ground Level – Murray Street Mall
This level includes a new lobby for the proposed tower, a flagship retail tenancy facing Murray Street Mall and a new ‘Carillon Lane’ pedestrian link and public space. ‘Carillon Lane’ is proposed to link to Trinity Arcade via a bifurcated access measuring 3.5 metres to 4 metres in width. The level will include specialty retail, food and beverage and associated seating ‘kiosk’ tenancies.

Page 26
Carillon Lane and Carillon Walk will provide essential through connectivity in the retail core, and will function as an important nexus that feeds from the waterfront, through the office and retail core, to key public transport hubs and the Cultural Centre and beyond. The connections support the function of Trinity Arcade and Forrest Place, as well as Forrest Chase. The pedestrian network is essential to the success of the retail core and a key part of its unique offering.

The undercover link from Perth Station to the Esplanade was mandated in the 1985 Citiplace plan and has been there ever since. Train station-Forrest Chase-Trinity-Allendale-Allendale 2.

No mention of the Hay St portal. Going off the renders it's being removed.

So this has been given all the approvals and can actually go ahead?
Getting rid of the eyesore that is the City Arcade office tower is definitely a good thing.

Yup received DAP full approval tonight with fairly reasonable conditions. Looks like the bells will have to be incorporated into the design.

Paywall.....

Just use incognito/private browsing mode.


I thought this part was funny:


There were also concerns around demolishing the existing Forrest Place pedestrian bridge which is technically “brand new”.


However Dexus representatives said rather than rebuilding the bridge, it would seek to relocate it and remove two support columns to give it a more contemporary design.

I wonder how this will perform in terms of leasing. Forrest Chase seems to be slowly filling up, but only with retailers who have an existing presence in WA and are relocating or opening a city store.

My hope is that Carillon will be able to draw new retailers to Perth have a presence in Syd/Melb.

It would have been great if Dexus were able to buy up some of the surrounding sites to the east and west as well.
