BHP, Treasury office tower plans revealed

Architecture firm Fitzpatrick + Partners has revealed plans for BHP Billiton's new Perth head office on the former Westralia Square site and Brookfield Multiplex's proposed Old Treasury Building redevelopment.

Artist impressions of City Square and the Treasury Building have been placed on the Sydney-based firm's website at www.fitzpatrickpartners.com

They appear alongside images of a 14-level, 24,000 square metre office tower planned for the Southern side of City Square, fronting Mounts Bay Road, a plan which developer Griffin Group has just lodged with the City of Perth.

The plans for the site include a retail arcade, public plaza and a 110-bay tenant car park.

Brookfield Multiplex's proposed 46-level office tower is a step closer, meanwhile, after receiving the go-ahead at last night's Council meeting.

BHP Billiton has commited to some 60,000sqm within the 71,000sqm City Square tower, which Brookfield Multiplex will likely start construction shortly, ahead of its completion in 2011.

The buildings, which will contain retail, restaurant and office tenants, will connect St Georges Terrace with a public plaza at the southern end.

The main tower will contain a five level podium, with 39 floors of office space above, and is targeting a minimum 5 star green star rating.

The images of City Square show how Brookfield Multiplex plan to re-energise the heritage precint, through the refurbishment of Newspaper House, the WA Trustee building, the Royal Insurance building and the Perth Technical College, and their integration with the modern office tower.
