The Property Council of Australia applauds the foresight of the State Government in accepting a futuristic and daring design for the much awaited Indoor Stadium.
The plans deliver a truly iconic structure to the City of Perth similar to Sydney Opera House and Melbourne’s Federation Square, said Mr Luke Saraceni President of the Property Council of Australia (WA Division).
“It would be tragic if once again political point scoring and knee-jerk reactions rob the City of a potentially world class structure. The Indoor Stadium will be consumed by the mediocrity of compromise if we turn our backs on this design.
“The under-whelming Bell Tower is a timely reminder of a great idea that is cut down by a comprised outcome.
“The Property Council urges the Government to stick with its resolve to deliver something special to the City of Perth and dismiss the “shed’ mentality of certain sections of the community”, said Mr Saraceni.
