New Stadium In Perth To Cost $806M, Half Of Funding To Come From Taxpayers
Published July 18, 2014
DESIGN LAUDED: ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN's Nathan Johnson reported the project will be developed by Westadium, a "consortium led by Brookfield Financial and John Laing." Westadium spokesperson John Flecker emphasized the design's "seating bowl, lightweight fabric roof and tech-heavy facilities as key features." Flecker: "The new Perth Stadium seating bowl will deliver unrivalled sightlines" (ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN, 7/17). ABC reported Barnett said "the cost of the stadium and the surrounding sports precinct" would be about A$860M, but "that figure does not include" a A$16M ($15M) project management fee. Barnett said that the stadium "will be lit up in the colours of the teams playing on the day" (ABC, 7/17).
