Central Mall Upgrade Project

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Central Mall Project will mark the start of the 10-year vision for the Kalamunda Town Centre coming to life.

The vision of the Kalamunda Activity Centre Plan, is for Central Mall to become the heart of Kalamunda’s night-time economy, delivering an intimate and vibrant urban experience that supports both day and night-time activities.

Background

In 2018, the City of Kalamunda undertook preliminary community and stakeholder engagement to understand the community’s 10-year vision for the Kalamunda Town Centre. Through a range of workshops, surveys and conversations, the City engaged with Kalamunda businesses and residents. Their ideas and comments were incorporated into the draft Kalamunda Activity Centre Plan, which was released for public comment in June 2019.

Following the public advertising period, the plan was finalised and endorsed by Council at the 24 March 2020 Ordinary Council Meeting and lodged with the Western Australian Planning Commission. On 30 June 2020 Council adopted the 2020/2021 Budget, which includes a $2.4 million commitment for upgrades to the Kalamunda Town Centre, commencing with the upgrade of Central Mall.

About the Project

The vision of the Kalamunda Activity Centre Plan, is for Central Mall to become the heart of Kalamunda’s night-time economy, delivering an intimate and vibrant urban experience that supports both day and night-time activities in the centre.

Central Mall will become a precinct with a food and beverage focus and act as a counterpoint to the more traditional and heritage spaces of the Kalamunda town centre.

The City has engaged an experienced team of landscape architects, space planners and engineers led by PLACE Laboratory to undertake the Detailed Design and Tender Documentation for the Central Mall upgrade in the Kalamunda Town Centre. PLACE Laboratory will deliver this over two phases:

  • Phase 1: Concept – produce a finalised concept plan for Central Mall and undertake community consultation.
  • Phase 2: Detail Design – finalise specifications and constructability for works to be undertaken, based on the finalised concept plan, which will also be advertised for public comment.

To learn more about the project, please take a look at the proposed concept design, Frequently Asked Questions, or Image Gallery which can be accessed in the menu on the right.

Draft Concept

The draft concept for Central Mall is now open for public comment.

To view the concept, please refer to the draft Concept document, Fact Sheet 1 & Fact Sheet 2 or Frequently Asked Questions.

The City would like your feedback on the draft concept plan for Central Mall. What features do you like and what improvements you would like to make? We are also seeking ideas on a potential new name for Central Mall once upgraded, so we would love to hear your ideas!
