Expresso Property Ltd has announced that it has concluded missives on The Mill Quarter site, a brand new landmark mixed leisure scheme with residential apartments.  The scheme will be a catalyst for economic change in Perth and will significantly transform the City’s visitor destination offer on completion.

 Mill Quarter is a new leisure hub at the heart of the City, comprising a state of the art multi-screen cinema: a mix of bars; restaurants and speciality shops, a 205 space multi-storey car park and 58 new apartments.
