Application of water sensitive urban design strategies to provide retention, ltration, litter management and bio- retention outcomes, as well as improvements to local amenity.
The Kings Square development in Perth’s central business district is part of Perth City Link – an urban renewal project including offices, retail space, community open space and residential development. The project extends the commercial core of Perth and reconnects the city with Northbridge.
As part of the development’s approach to sustainability and total water cycle management, a network of raingardens were incorporated into the streetscape design to provide stormwater treatment, protect sensitive groundwater systems that flow into the nearby Swan River, improve the long term health of street trees, enhance amenity, and integrate with the surrounding built form and elements of the streetscape.
