New re-developments 70km apart are set to re-shape two of WA’s major population hubs.
Eight-hundred jobs are about to be created in the heart of Perth, while in Mandurah the council is gearing up for a major foreshore overhaul.
The people of Mandurah are set to get a new floating pool.
“There’s also going to be a 5m boardwalk all the way around the outside of the pool, so we’ll be able to have music events on there and people there performing and entertaining our community,” Mandurah mayor Rhys Williams said.
The pool is central in $17 million plans to revitalise both the east and western foreshore.
The plans include a new skate park and a new play area for the 87,000 people live there.
If the plans get the go ahead the new swimming pool will be built right near the new traffic bridge. And it won’t be small, in fact it’ll be as wide as an Olympic size swimming pool —50m.
The council has endorsed the plans, They now it need the tick of approval from the public.
The State Government is pitching in $10 million towards it.
In the CBD there’s the Perth Hub project.
It included a 30 storey apartment tower and a 21-storey hotel placed between Yagan Square and the RAC Arena.
Construction on the $300 million project starts next year.
