Central Park is a 51-storey office tower in Perth, Western Australia. The building measures 226m from its base at St Georges Terrace to the roof, and 249m to the tip of its communications mast. Upon its completion in 1992, the tower became the tallest building in Perth. It is also currently the equal seventh tallest building in Australia and the tallest building in the Western half of Australia.Using our online itinerary creator, Perth attractions like Central Park can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
The approval of the tower was controversial due to the plot ratio concessions made by the Perth City Council to the developers. These concessions enabled the developers to construct a tower more than twice the height which would otherwise be allowable on the site. There was also opposition to the Council's decision to ignore its own town planning experts in allowing a large car park to be constructed underneath the site.
The building is formed by a composite steel and concrete frame, with various setbacks in its profile, meaning the upper floors are much smaller in area than lower levels. Outrigger trusses at the top of the building and at the various setbacks help to stiffen the building's reinforced concrete core against the strong winds prevalent in the area. The base of the building features a small park, for which the tower is named.
Department storesFrom as early as the 1930s, the site was home to a Foy & Gibson department store, which was known by the locals as Foy's. The store extended all the way through from St Georges Terrace to Hay Street, featured a popular cafeteria and "had great areas of window display with island windows beyond the street frontage".

セントラルパークと言う名前からはちょっと想像出来ないくらいにコンパクトな広場でした。Western Australian Visitor Centre（観光案内所）のすぐ近くでした。 more »It was from Central Park the name I can't imagine as a compact square. It was near the Western Australian Visitor Centre (Tourist Office).
Enjoyable place to sit. Watch the busy CBD world go by.
Nice spot with some good events held of late (mainly Rio Tinto sponsored)
