BankWest Tower, Perth

(1/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
108 St Georges Terrace or South32 Tower is a 50-storey office tower in Perth, Western Australia. Completed in 1988, the building measures 214m to its roof and 247m to the tip of its communications antenna. It was the tallest building in Perth from its completion in 1988 until 1992 when it was overtaken in height by Central Park. As of 2009, it remains the second-tallest building in the city. The concrete tower has a distinctive profile, with a triangular plan.The site occupied by the tower was home to the Palace Hotel, and organised opposition was formed to try to save that building from demolition to make way for an office tower. The site was subsequently acquired by businessman Alan Bond and the tower was approved and constructed in a plan that would retain much of the Palace Hotel. The tower then remained the headquarters of Bond's companies until their collapse. The tower has also been the headquarters of Western Australia's state bank, Bankwest, between its completion and 2012.

  • The Bankwest Tower is a rather modern building with a unique design for the top. Not sure how old it is but it makes a good impression on the Perth skyline.  more »
  • Into local friends dad works at a bank here, so I think you could. Only by seeing the views from the room and soon returned, but look down on the River was clean. There is another big building in front of the Swan River, it was out of the way slightly. Did not seem so clear and found the direction of Fremantle.
