North Perth Common Project

North Perth Common will be a new public shared space located in the heart of the North Perth Town Centre, at the corner of Fitzgerald Street and View Street, which will be highly visible, will significantly improve pedestrian comfort, and will be a meeting place and centrepiece of the North Perth Community. The North Perth Common Concept Design is the product of a collaborative workshop process with the North Perth Common Working Group who worked to conceptualise the feedback received from the community.

The key elements of the concept design include:

  • An exciting suspended lighting installation with a circular design that is interactive and responsive to people moving through the space below.
  • Plenty of shade and green space with an additional 14 trees and an additional 370 square metres of tree canopy coverage compared to what is provided in the space currently; and
  • A more pedestrian friendly shared space that can be adapted for community events and markets.

The North Perth Common project will see an overall investment of $741K which includes a $250K contribution from the State Government. The construction of North Perth Common will commence in 2018 and is planned for completion in mid-2019.

North Perth Common is phase one of a larger shared space initiative for the North Perth Town Centre which will forge a pedestrian link between View Street, Angove Street and Fitzgerald Street.
