ELIZABETH QUAY is one step closer to being the site of a 50-level residential complex after the City of Perth planning committee backed the proposal on Tuesday night.

The proposal from CA & A Associates involves a 25-storey hotel/serviced apartment building as well as the 50-storey residential building on land owned by the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority.

The proposal includes two common basement levels of carparking and services, separate hotel/serviced apartment and residential podium elements – five storeys each – linked by a covered plaza, with separate hotel/serviced apartment, 20 storeys, and residential (45 storeys) towers above.

There will be 209 hotel rooms and 171 short stay serviced apartments, alongside 323 residential dwellings.

A variety of retail, office, dining, gymnasium and shared amenity spaces are proposed for the ground and podium levels including covered plaza, laneway and alfresco spaces.

About 375 carparking bays will be provided for the proposed development.

Perth Planning Committee members councillors Judy McEvoy, Keith Yong and Jim Adamos voted to give the proposal “in principle” support, subject to a number of considerations.

They included the height and setbacks of the residential tower building being “extensively reviewed” to ensure they align with the objectives of the Elizabeth Quay Design Guidelines; residential car parking and hotel/serviced carparking bays being reduced in accordance with the maximums prescribed by the Elizabeth Quay Design Guidelines and Perth Parking Policy; and the submission of a detailed management plan for the proposed plaza space.

The item will come before the full council next Tuesday .
