Brookfield Place in Perth encompasses a major sector of a city block and is positioned in the heart of the CBD. The centrepiece of the development is Brookfield Place tower which has more than 74,500 square metres of premium grade commercial space and is one of the largest and most technically advanced commercial office buildings in Australia.
This development has received over 25 property awards to date and was undertaken in collaboration with Hassell Architects.
Brookfield Place also includes the refurbishment of five heritage buildings which contain boutique office accommodation, restaurants, bars and first class fashion stores. It has been recognised as one of the catalysts of recreating the urban heart of Perth, creating destinations that extend the CBD beyond the traditional work day period.
