UNDER CONSTRUCTION – 10 MAY 2017
We are redeveloping Raine Square to become the new heart of Perth’s CBD. It will include new retail, food and entertainment facilities and we are restoring the heritage Royal and Wentworth, to create flagship retail, accommodation, and dining. Ultimately, there will be 40 new stores and fabulous dining experiences that will transform Raine Square into a major Perth destination.
As part of the redevelopment of Raine Square, the retail, food hall and public access tunnel to Perth Underground will close from Tuesday 6 June 2017 and anticipate reopening mid-2018. Bankwest Place will still be open with access through the existing entrances off William Street and Murray Street, with the Bankwest branch remaining open and accessible via Murray Street.
We are pleased to announce that we have appointed Built as primary contractor for the redevelopment of the Raine Square, with work on site commencing in mid-July 2017.
SAFETY FIRST – 11 SEPTEMBER 2017
Safety hoarding has been installed along Wellington Street, William Street, Murray Street and near the entry to the Bankwest office tower. The graphics on the hoarding showcase the artist’s impressions of the future Raine Square development.
AND WE ARE OFF – 24 SEPTEMBER 2017
More than 100 people, including the Premier Mark McGowan, Government ministers and City of Perth representatives, primary contractor Built, key stakeholders and community members joined us in celebrating the start of the $75 million development of Raine Square.
Celebrating the ‘soil turn’, Charter Hall’s Head of Office Development Services Andrew Borger outlined our vision for Raine Square – to reimagine the space into an inviting and enticing seven-day-a-week experience, which combines entertainment, dining and retail.
Under the guidance of construction company Built and chief architects Taylor Robinson we will deliver 40 new stores along with enhanced food and entertainment choices and ultimately become one of the premier destinations in the Perth CBD. Through our partners, Palace Cinemas, we are bringing the movies back to the CBD for the first time since 2013 with 12 new cinema screens to create a vibrant film, arts and entertainment hub.
The redevelopment of Raine Square will include a beautiful new all-glass, retail building which will redefine the entrance to Bankwest Place.
We’re very excited to be refurbishing and incorporating the heritage Wentworth and Royal hotels into the site. This will be a particularly careful and respectful redevelopment to ensure the original features of these beautiful buildings are retained. The Royal Hotel will be restored to create a flagship venue connecting the new dining precinct with the thriving activity surrounding the William and Wellington Street corner.
We will invite people to the site through the clever reactivation of the street fronts and pedestrian walkways.
Coles’ only CBD store will be returning to Raine Square in 2018, along with Rebel. Other stores returning to Raine Square in 2018 include, Bakers Delight, Subway, Maven Espresso, SuperChem, NewsXpress, and Central Convenience Express. We are delighted that our first newly located tenant My Adventure Travel has now settled into their Murray and Queen Street corner store.
We are also pleased to have engaged Built to undertake the construction of this project. Built delivered what has been described as one of Perth’s best restoration projects at COMO – The Treasury on Cathedral Avenue in Perth, where many of the original features of the WA State Treasury Buildings were preserved.
Built will undertake the redevelopment of Raine Square while the office tower continues to function. We’d like to thank Bankwest and other tenants for their understanding, cooperation and support during this time.
