Canning Beach Promenade by Hillam Architects is a progressive new riverside precinct planned for Canning Beach Road in Applecross. With a vision to bring Applecross and the Swan River together, it will combine premium apartments and multi-generational services and facilities with a rejuvenated public foreshore. The proposed development offers a complete foreshore rejuvenation with improved public area, a new riverside piazza and exciting mix of businesses including café, gourmet deli, day spa and sport and lifestyle.

The design consists of 3 individual buildings comprising 242 premium apartments with a shared podium, central community space and extensive landscaping creating a much-loved residential address and riverfront visitor hub.

The organically shaped towers have been designed to promote view corridors through the site while reducing the perceived bulk of the towers. This has been achieved by stepping sections of each tower and curving all corners to soften the massing. Delicate horizontal and vertical framing around each tower provides further modulation while also providing privacy for residents and neighbouring properties.

The podium design has been inspired by the local rock formations found along the banks of the Swan and Canning Rivers. This stratified, solid element grounds the building and incorporates generous amounts of planting and vegetation.
