    Central Park completed its biggest transformation since its development—refurbishing the lobby and exteriors. The 14-month transformation project reimagined the entire Central Park experience for our customers and visitors. The expansive refurbishment transformed Central Park into a vibrant business precinct and created sophisticated spaces with unique features including open business lounges, discrete business pods and a brand-new cafe. The refurbished lobby was officially opened by Perth Lord Mayor, Basil Zempilas on 28 October 2020.

  • The CBD’s Green Oasis

    1993

    When the building’s park opened in 1993, its intent was to give space back to the community – a breath of fresh air in an increasingly built-up city. Incredibly, today it remains the CBD’s only green space. This 2,500 square metre landscaped park has since been a popular spot for those in the city to have lunch, enjoy a coffee, or simply relax.

  • An Icon is born

    1992

    Upon its completion in 1992, Central Park forever transformed the Perth skyline. Standing at 249m tall and 51 floors, not only was it now and still is Perth’s tallest building, it set a new benchmark for premium office space in WA. The building was officially opened on 27 September 1993 by the Hon. Richard Court, MLA Premier of Western Australia.

  • Brian McKay: Making a Masterpiece

    1988

    Artist Brian McKay was commissioned to create a series of artworks for the lobby. Living with his family on the small island of Kythira in Greece, artist Brian McKay was fascinated by the architecture, including the small Byzantine chapels and the ancient Greek script etched on the walls of the crypts.

  • The Making of Creating Central Park

    1988

    After several alterations and planning changes, construction on Central Park began in 1988. The building was constructed in a modular method, whereby over 60,000m2 of floor units were pre-cast off-site and dropped into the steel frame of the tower as construction progressed.

  • A Striking Form

    1988

    Designed by iconic Perth architectural firm Forbes & Fitzhardinge, its creators envisioned an angular, geometric and striking building that would forever shape and redefine the city’s skyline. From its soaring glass canopy, to its podium towers, and the sprawling park at its base, Central Park is even today unlike any other building in Perth.
