Mindeerup Piazza
The Connect South Project is about creating a positive environment, both economically and socially to support the growth of the South Perth Peninsula and greater region. The project is focused on improved access to transport, improved public amenity and greater economic opportunity.

The brief for the foreshore called for the creation of a Piazza space that would become a key civic space for the community and a gateway to South Perth. Located on the banks of the Swan River the project can be seen from Elizabeth Quay and Kings Park and provides a range of unique amenities for residents, local businesses and visitors. The Piazza’s revitalisation fulfils the City’s vision of the foreshore hosting high-quality spaces for civic and ceremonial events. The place has become a destination that welcomes visitors and commuters to South Perth.
