- Perth, Western Australia
CHRISTOU submitted a proposal to the Premier, the Honourable Mr Colin Barnett, suggesting relocation of the key AFL Stadium to a location close to the Burswood Casino.
The proposal highlighted an opportunity to develop a vibrant event and entertainment mixed-use precinct on the Swan River. It would deliver intergenerational benefits for people of Western Australia, maximise the return on stadia investment, capture the imagination of the State, create a new economic driver on the eastern edge of the city and connect the east bank to the CBD including connection of waterways.
The WA Government has decided that the stadium will be relocated to this site. CHRISTOU are now working with Populous to deliver a Project Definition Plan for the new Perth Major Stadium on this site.
