Kings Square 1 now complete

John Holland is celebrating completion of the Kings Square 1 (KS1) tower, as part of the wider $4b Perth City Link project.

The building was constructed for CIMIC Group company Leighton Properties

Located on the corner of King and Wellington Streets, KS1 will have 22,600sqm of tenancy space across 19 levels. In addition to four commercial and retail towers, the Kings Square precinct will include a further commercial tower and two residential blocks. Completion of all four buildings - KS1, KS2, KS3 and KS4 – has now been achieved.


John Holland Chief Executive Officer, Glenn Palin, said the Perth City Link will reinvigorate the CBD.


“We’re proud to be part of an initiative that will draw billions of investment dollars into Perth through a vibrant mix of new transit, commercial and retail zones, public spaces and residential opportunities,” he said.


Key milestones on the KS1 project have included the achievement of a Green Star design rating.


“John Holland was contracted by CIMIC to achieve a 5-Star Green Star Design and ‘As-Built’ rating, as well as deliver a 5-Star Energy Rating, which measures the actual energy efficiency performance of the building against the design commitments, after project occupancy.


“KS1 has been designed to meet the changing needs of the office environment. The commercial tower has been built to facilitate worker health, performance and collaboration within the organisation. This includes maximising natural light and external views, with areas for use as alternative meeting spaces that take advantage of elevated terrace areas, garden views and green spaces.”


John Holland has previously delivered the Perth City Link rail project in the precinct in alliance with the Public Transport Authority and GHD. This involved sinking a 600-metre section of the Fremantle rail line to reconnect the CBD with Northbridge, the construction of a new pedestrian underpass connecting Perth and Perth Underground stations and major upgrades to Perth Station.
