The Western Australia government has announced plans for the sustainable development of hotel rooms in the state's capital.
Two new city sites have been released for development, with tourism minister Kim Hames calling for registrations of interest on May 22.
"This is a prime site in the central business district consisting of more than 7,300 square metres over three lots, and we are very confident it will attract a lot of interest from developers," Dr Hames said.
It is the first site released under the state government’s new hotel incentives package, which looks to provide provision of Crown land at reduced market rates, flexible floor space bonuses and infrastructure grants.
The City of Perth council has welcomed the move, with lord mayor Lisa Scaffidi stating that it is a positive step forward for the city.
"Releasing a big, strategically located site opens the door for developers to make an investment in the future of our rapidly growing city," she said.
"A quality, new hotel will do much to stimulate the eastern end of the city at a time when other major developments have been focused on the city centre and West End."
