Ideas worth pickling

Industry and art is packed side by side in the Pickle District.

IDEAS are being sought for the Pickle District as the old industrial wedge of West Perth undergoes a rebirth as an artsy hub.

Just south of Newcastle Street, it sits on a drained lake that was later home to market gardens, warehouses, manufacturers and pickling plants, which inspired the recent Pickle District rebranding.

The revival’s been spurred by arty businesses moving in among the warehouse, such as the Holmes √† Court Gallery @ No. 10, Stala Contemporary art gallery, Linton & Kay Galleries, and film hub The Backlot. 

Vincent council’s currently finalising a “place plan” that’ll outline big initiatives, including a potential underpass to better connect it to the Leederville town centre (it’s currently cut off by a busy four-lane street).

Feedback on the draft plan’s open until July 23 via imagine. vincent.wa.gov.au or at the council library at 99 Loftus Street.
