A new dining and culture landscape has been given the go-ahead for the redevelopment of Perth CBD.

The new dining hub will form part of Cbus Property’s construction of 140, which will focus on a shop eat play ethos to deliver food, culture, fashion and the arts to the city.

Retail manager Kristi Dempster said the new 140 will provide a fresh new urban dining experience and with tenants such as Jamie’s Italian already confirmed.
“Cbus Property’s aim is to push the construction and design process over the next 12 months to transform 140 and deliver an authentic urban destination to our constantly evolving city,” she said.

“We see our approach as a real breakthrough for Perth – 140 will become a destination in its own right. The urban village vision will see something for everyone. Leading retailers mixed with Jamie’s Italian, small bars, The Aviary, cafes and restaurants.

“All of this coupled with an arts program supportive of both local, national and international artists will make for a something special in the Perth CBD.”

Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi praised the revitalisation of 140 saying it was a welcome addition to the expanding food and beverage choices on offer in the city.

“The last couple of years and the next decade in front of us signify a period of transformation and growth for the city of Perth and 140 is an integral part of this,” she said.

“As the fastest growing capital city in the country, we must continue to embrace the advancement and evolution of existing buildings such as 140 in order to provide the people of Perth with cutting edge dining and retail options.”

Construction of the revitalised 140 is expected to be completed by the end of 2013.
