Perth City Link

Perth City Link

The Perth City Link is Perth’s most significant urban regeneration project, and will connect the Perth City Centre and Northbridge with a vibrant new destination that embraces the city’s lifestyle and character, and distinctly reflects Perth’s 21st century aspirations.

The Link is Perth’s most significant urban regeneration project. The project will not only reconnect the city centre with Northbridge for the first time in over 100 years, it will create strong linkages to the foreshore and deliver an intensity of people and activity into the city.

As lead Masterplan consultant, Taylor Burrell Barnett has been pivotal in the delivery of a plan that has achieved widespread community support.

The commitment by the state government and City of Perth to sink the Mandurah-Clarkson and Perth-Fremantle rail lines through to Lake Street, and provide a new underground bus station, is the catalyst for the redevelopment of the land.

The physical, technical and operational constraints of numerous infrastructure elements presented significant challenges for the Masterplan, as did the effective incorporation of the new Perth Arena.

The Masterplan results in an innovative, progressive destination bringing together shops, offices, hotels, apartments, parks and plazas, cultural venues, restaurants and bars, whilst retaining and integrating high quality public transport.
