Leederville Laneway Competition Winner Announced!

Leederville Laneway Competition Winner Announced!

The Laneway that connects The Leederville Hotel to the ABN Group Headquarters finally has a name – Electric Lane – The Leederville Hotel was the first business to have electric lights in 1905 and will be the main connection for ABNs employees to the hotel and a space for the community to enjoy.

This is the first major milestone ahead of its August opening for the multi-million-dollar refurbishment which commenced in November 2020 – which includes the construction of a new dining area and bar, shop and kiosks that will open onto the laneway.

The competition to rename the laneway commenced in January 2021 and invited the public to help rename the laneway with Mary-Anne Goulden walking away with a $500 voucher to dine at any of the new hospitality outlets to be revealed in the coming months.

“We are delighted to announce the first major milestone ahead of opening in August. The new laneway will be the start of the unveiling of the new social hub of Leederville, a multi-faceted space for the community anchored by the best hospitality, retail and entertainment spaces with something for everyone and every occasion,” said FJM Property.

“The name Electric Lane is a great nod to the history of the hotel and a link to the bright future for the development.”

The official launch of the laneway will take place once all retailers for the laneway have moved in.

The City of Vincent have been working in collaboration with FJM Property and Hesperia to upgrade the laneways core infrastructure, including drainage, paving and street lighting. The laneway complements the character of Leederville, tying in with Leederville Village Square using the same red brickwork that was laid in the shared space and featuring public artwork to further support the day and night trade of this precinct.

“Electric Lane was one of the names proposed under our Naming Places project. It was put out for community consultation, assessed by Landgate and our Local History Centre to ensure the name was meaningful to Leederville. I love that Electric Lane creates both a sense of history and has a great energy.’’ Mayor Cole said.

“We’re excited the laneway name reflects what will be a vibrant dining and entertaining hub for the community to enjoy, whilst also providing high quality access for residents and visitors to Leederville.

“With works underway, it won’t be long before locals and visitors can enjoy this beautiful, illuminated and energised laneway precinct in the heart of Leederville.

The Leederville redevelopment is on track for an August opening with new food and beverage offerings to be announced in the coming months with an acclaimed culinary team coming to the precinct.
