What We Thought Would Kill Us - The Raffles Waterfront Development

The ‘What we thought would kill us series’ examines some of Perth’s most controversial developments, which have generated large amounts of community opposition either during the approval or development stages. In doing so, the Committee for Perth aims to remind us all that what was once controversial can become an accepted part of our community.

This case study is the fifth in the series, and examines the Raffles Waterfront Development, a
controversial high density residential development constructed within what has become known as the Canning Bridge Precinct.
