City Beach Surf Club Building & Commercial Development

Project Description

The City Beach Surf Club Building & Commercial Redevelopment will involve the demolition of the existing City of Perth Surf Life Saving Club and construction of a new Surf Club Building, along with three food & beverage tenancies at City Beach.
The Surf Club Building will see a state of the art facility delivered to house Surf Club operations, function and training centres and a gymnasium. The Commercial Tenancies will provide a diverse offering of food & beverage operators which will benefit the precinct by attracting both local residents and tourists.
