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.
