WHO’S COMING TO RAINE SQUARE? – 4 DECEMBER

Raine Square 3D Video

 

Q&A with Darryll Ashworth, Metier CEO

As the leasing agent, what is your overall aim in terms of the tenant mix for Raine Square?

We are very conscious that most of the big suburban shopping centres are expanding so competition will be significant. In the coming years, each of these centres will have the same mix of retail outlets. So, what we’re looking to achieve at Raine Square is to create something that’s tangibly different. Several the tenants who have committed to Raine Square are new to Perth and will only be doing one or two stores. So, we can say that we will have the only store with that type of merchandise in the CBD. While this makes our job a little harder to find those retailers, it is much more rewarding because we’re helping to create a unique retail experience, that can only Raine Square can deliver.

What is the Raine Square fashion precinct going to look like?
Raine Square brings beautiful heritage architecture and new contemporary structures being created from scratch together. So, we can create a very diverse offering for retailers whose brand character lends itself to either the heritage style of the wonderful Wentworth Hotel or the stunning double height shopfronts in the new architecture to help create their brand structure. We’ll be able to offer fashion retailers a choice of retail façade. Key to our fashion precinct at Raine Square will be flagship fashion outlets. The average size of a fashion store at Raine Square will be between 250 and 300 square meters which means retailers can offer their full range of merchandise, rather than limiting the number of sizes or styles they make available. These are very bold footprints compared to a typical shopping centre of about half the size. So, it’s all about flagship fashion retailers making a bold statement that they’re here at Raine Square and this is where you’ll find everything they have to offer.

Tell us about the dining space at Raine Square?
We’re totally redesigning the food and beverage experience at Raine Square. Traditionally, food courts are only busy for three hours in the middle of the day. Being in the CBD, and with a new 12-screen cinema complex as part of the redevelopment, we have an opportunity to transform the dining experience beyond the typical workday cycle. Combine that with commuters from the new Wellington St underground bus station, easy access to Perth Underground through the linking tunnel and easy pedestrian access to the main train station, plus Yagan Square across the road, the number of people crossing through or close to Raine Square throughout the day and evening will be significant. Food outlets at Raine Square will have larger spaces of around 120 square meters, meaning each tenancy will have its own seating. This allows the operators to be licenced and diners can sit at a dedicated space have a drink with their meal after 5pm. So, at lunchtime you could enjoy a burger, and after work you can have a beer with your burger before catching a movie upstairs.

What can we look forward to at the convenience level of Raine Square?
The convenience level of retail at Raine Square was very popular and we’re delighted that the only Coles in the CBD will be returning along with Bakers Delight, Central Convenience Express, Maven Espresso, My Adventure Travel, NewsXpress, Subway and Superchem. There are other convenience outlets we want to offer such as optical and a liquor store. With the goal being to provide outlets suited to people who live and work in the area, which can be accessed daily.

What do you envisage for the laneway area of the complex?
A stunning new laneway will be cut through off William Street into Raine Plaza. It will have the heritage listed Wentworth Hotel on one side and brand-new architecture on the other, making it a fantastic alfresco walkway, which adds a new dimension and curiosity to Raine Square. In order to complement the eat-in al fresco offering we’ll have grab-and-go food operators so that commuters can pick up something on the way to work. Alternatively, if someone is staying in the city on a Friday night they might have a quick spruce-up at the salon. It’s about not being too exclusive in that part of Raine Square because we know people will be moving through reasonably quickly on their way to somewhere else. So, our vision is for the laneway is for it to be a place where people can catch-up, top-up, touch-up and keep moving.

If anyone wants to contact you about a leasing space in Raine Square, how can they reach you?
We’re delighted to be the leasing agents for what is a truly transformational project in the CBD.

The best way to be part of Raine Square is to contact Darryll Ashworth on darryll@metierconsult.com at Metier on 0407 606 933.

Raine Square is pleased to be partnering with Bankwest and Foodbank WA, to be a collection point for food donations in 2017. This year’s campaign is focussing on the thousands of Western Australian children who would otherwise be without a meal this Christmas. Foodbank WA is now feeding more than 94,000 people a month.

RAINE SQUARE DEVELOPMENT NEWS – 4 DECEMBER

Development pic 1

We are focussed on preparing for the arrival of Palace Cinemas and the construction of the 12 screen facility. To date, we have completed the construction of the expanded area, pouring a new concrete slab within what was the Raine Square atrium void. The installation of services and cinema walls is progressing very well.

We’re also excited about the start of construction of a new laneway that will allow direct access into Raine Square from William Street, and we are opening spaces on the ground level which will be the future flagship restaurants on William Street.

Inside, the size of the ground floor retail area where Coles will be returning is also increasing. So far, the void has been filled to make way for a newly-designed convenience level precinct.


RAINE MEDICAL RESEARCH FOUNDATION PARTNERSHIP – 30 NOVEMBER

Team pic

Raine Square owners, Charter Hall, held a well-attended breakfast to launch the Mary Raine Exhibition, which included Heritage Perth’s Executive Director Richard Offen, Director of the Raine Medical Research Foundation, Lyn Ellis, Build Site Manager, Robert Lennox and Patrick Hollingworth, Charter Hall Development Manager.

Charter Hall’s Regional Portfolio Manager Miles Rowe announced a partnership between Charter Hall and lead Raine Square contractor Built and the Raine Medical Research Foundation to raise funds over the course of the Raine Square redevelopment.

Dr Sally Lansley Guest Speaker

On top of that, from 2018, Charter Hall will give $10,000 annually to an overseas-based medical professor to spend time in Perth with clinicians to pass on knowledge and expertise to further medical research here in WA.

On the partnership, Mr Rowe said: “We’ve been so enthralled by the Mary Raine story. She was a woman of great tenacity, a business leader of her day and whose legacy we want to honour by helping the community to make the connection between Raine Square and the work of the foundation she established to benefit medical research.

“What more fitting tribute could there be for Raine Square’s current owners Charter Hall to continue supporting her Foundation and for Raine Square itself to continue being a place for people to gather and enjoy themselves.”

MARY RAINE EXHIBITION SUCCESS  – 30 NOVEMBER

Miles Rowe

Our exhibition showcasing the history of Raine Square, and its namesake and previous owner, Mary Raine, was a huge success. Part of 2017 Perth Heritage Days, we had more than 400 visitors view the exhibition on October 14 and 15. It was such a success, the exhibition was extended until November 30. Our exhibition of Raine Square past and present included a selection of photos along the wall of the mezzanine floor of Bankwest Place. Talks were given on each day of the Perth Heritage days’ weekend by Lyn Ellis and Dr Amanda Cleaver, who are the Director and Project Manager of the Raine Medical Research Foundation, respectively.

Mary Raine was a successful business woman who helped shaped Perth’s CBD. She immigrated to Western Australia in 1900 and from humble beginnings built up a business and property empire during the 1920s including a small hotel, which she rebuilt and renamed The Wentworth, which was later to become her home and flagship, and is now being carefully restored at a part of the Raine Square redevelopment. In World War II, the Wentworth was even used to accommodate US Navy submarine crews!

When she died, Mary bequeathed 1 million pounds (equivalent to ~$45 million today) to the University of Western Australia, which allowed for the establishment of the Raine Medical Research Foundation. The Foundation represents the largest bequest ever received by UWA for medical research. The Foundation is celebrating its 60thyear, and has allocated over $50 million for medical research since it started, and currently commits over $1.3 million for research programs every year.

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.

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.
