Raine Square dates back to 1883 when the Royal Hotel was established. Consistently since then, for over 110 years, the site has been home to a hospitality establishment of one kind or another. With the new Bankwest Place commercial tower and Shopping Centre, Raine Square has been developed into a community space, to be enjoyed by the people of Perth.
The 22 level office tower, built to a premium standard for major tenant, Bankwest, opens onto the Murray Street Forecourt, where CBD workers, shoppers and commuters alike can sit and enjoy sculptures by Peter Zappa.
Bordering the corner of Queen Street and Murray Street is 306 Murray Street, a 3 level building. The ground level houses Bankwest’s brand new Flagship Store and two fashion stores, Vangoh Shoes and Amiracle. On the upper commercial level is Wave Engineering.
On the corner of William Street and Murray Street, the Moon & Sixpence and The Boheme will satisfy any appetite with their range of food and beverage menus. The Boheme’s rejuvenation in the spirit of its olde-worlde origins is a feast for the eyes. Two hotels, both with beautifully restored heritage facades, are located on both corners of William Street.
Inside, on the Murray Street level, you will find a range of fashion, gift, fast food, supermarket and convenience stores, with more to come in 2013. The Food Court, downstairs on the Wellington Street level, gives you 10 different choices of cuisine.
The tunnel, which will soon cater for a range of convenience offers, connects Raine Square directly to the Perth Underground. An overpass allows pedestrians to cross directly to the Perth Bus Station from the Murray Street level. Never in Perth’s history has a Shopping Centre had such access to the public transport system.
Western Australia’s first Coles Central brings a whole new level of convenience to the Perth CBD. Now your top up shop or last minute ingredient grab is on your way to the train station after work or after your city shopping.
