Demolition of the former Perth ABC Television building on Terrace Road is currently underway to make way for two new buildings.


Stage 1, located at 90 Terrace Road, will become a 23 level building comprising 117 two and three bedroom apartments ranging in size from 105 to 147 sqm. A 343 sqm penthouse and a 265 sqm sub-penthouse will occupy the 22nd and 23rd levels.

Stage 2, located at 88 Terrace Road, will be developed into a 21 level apartment building comprising 43 premium half floor apartments averaging 172 sqm in size. A 676 sqm penthouse and a 476 sqm sub-penthouse will occupy levels 20 and 21.

The third and fourth stages will comprise the refurbishment of heritage buildings and the construction of a new 29 storey tower on Adelaide Terrace. Details will be released at a later date.

The Basil Kirke Studio and the adjoining radio building fronting Adelaide Terrace will be retained but the remainder of the block will be considerably redeveloped.

Meanwhile another Perth icon, the Perth Entertainment Centre will be demolished and replaced by a string of office and apartment towers after a land swap deal between the West Australian state government and Kerry Stokes’s Seven Group.

The mothballed Perth Entertainment Centre will be demolished and replaced by a string of office and apartment towers after a land swap deal between the West Australian state government and Kerry Stokes’s Seven Group.


The entertainment centre opened in 1974, drawing major acts over 28 years before it was shut in 2002.

This development will enable the City Link project to proceed, which will connect Perth and Northbridge, after the city rail line and bus station is lowered underground, to free up the surface real estate.
