The Connect South Project is about creating a positive environment, both economically and socially to support the growth of the South Perth Peninsula and greater region. The project is focused on improved access to transport, improved public amenity and greater economic opportunity.

The brief for the foreshore area called for the creation of a Piazza space that would become a key civic space for the community and a gateway to South Perth. It is to be a destination space on the banks of the Swan River that can be seen from Elizabeth Quay and Kings Park and a space that welcomes visitors and commuters to South Perth. The project will provide a range of unique amenities for residents, local businesses and visitors to the City as well as fulfilling the City’s vision for the creation of a revitalised foreshore with high quality spaces to host civic and ceremonial events.
