Fuck the Pen

I don’t really know what to say’, but P says, ”
Oldfield Knott Architects propose a rework of the Peninsula Tavern site (owned by ALH Group), which looks more like Galleria Shopping Centre with a Dan Murphies tacked on to the side. ”

If shedist architects start taking notice of this blog, the the future of the city is going to be fucking magnificent! Anyone have a shot of the New Pen proposal? Whatever it looks like, will be nice to have somewhere to wait sipping a Fluffy Duck waiting for a Mad Kuntz booth to free up.

Wait, they cite this blog and then put fucking Cocoses in the artist impression? And another thing. It is nowhere near the actual Maylands Peninsula.

    More like a Dan Murphys with some filigree Siberian retros 60s barn attached.Note the focus on the bottle shop in that blurry photo. This is where ALH Gruppen earn.

    As seems to be illustrated, did they mention the complete bulldozing of all surrounding structures to the horizon in the ‘revitalization’ plan?

    OT – this leaves no doubt which demographic WA Toady are chasing, but just in case the comments seal the deal.

    Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that the Maylands Peninsula (actual, not booze-addled) seen from the air looks massively scrotey? Nature’s own C&B – perhaps a likeness could be the new Pen’s logo? Bar staff to wear on white polo shirts &c.

    The original proposal back in 2008 or something was going to be much better. New pub, bottle shop and apartments. Four or five storeys. Was scuppered by the GFC though apparently. So replace run down piece of crap with a new piece of shit instead. Shame.

    So they are moving the Pen to a field near Pingelly? Someone should do an exhibition of Perth ‘artists impressions’

    If you think this is bad wait until you see what it REALLY looks like. signed Multiprix Corporation.
