$9.7m makeover for Midland’s historic railway workshops

We have two upcoming projects in Midland.

Midland is currently undergoing exciting revitalisation. Below is a recent news article published in the West Australian about the current plans for Midland's historic railway workshops. 

The design for Midland’s newest public open space near the historic railway workshops has been unveiled, with $9.7 million allocated in the State Budget for the renovation.

The transformation in the Midland Railway Workshops precinct will include a public space at Railway Square, predicted to be nearly twice the size of Perth's Forrest Place. 

Planning Minister Donna Faragher said the Government aimed to revive Midland's industrial and innovative history.

"For more than 90 years, Midland Railway Workshops were the centre of social and community life for generations of railway workers and local people living in the area," she said.

The new area will include alfresco dining, water features and public art but also acknowledge the area's heritage with a "ceremonial" railway line.

"We are creating a dynamic urban village, a place where people can live, work and invest, and an important commercial, residential and recreational activity centre," Ms Faragher said.

Most of the work will be finished next year.
