The New Leederville Laneway Needs a Name

The Leederville Hotel’s exciting new development will include Leederville’s first true laneway precinct – we’re asking everyone to get involved and claim its new name through the ‘Name the Leedy Laneway’ naming competition!

About the Laneway

Part of the vision for the Leederville Hotel’s redevelopment is to create Leederville’s first true laneway precinct, a place that the community is proud to have at the centre of its city.

Its role is to bring together Leederville’s oldest and one of Perth’s most successful pubs with the newly created office development for ABN Group’s 750 plus team members and the wider Leederville community.

Plus! New tenancies are available for people looking to join the Leederville community in the laneway precinct. For more information please contact Michael Richardson on 0423 758 870 or email

The prize?

Not only will you have named one of Perth’s newest laneway precincts, but you’ll also receive a $500 voucher to dine at any of the new hospitality outlets when the development opens later this year!
