The plan to put ‘parklets’ at certain points in Argent Street is now on indefinite hold, it seems.
The parklets, formally known at the
Mineral and Art Intersections project, were set to be built as part of
the Living Museum and Perfect Light project, funded by a BHP grant of
The grant was first announced in January
2016 by BHP CEO, Andrew Mackenzie, who said the money would go towards
the parklets and to create a ‘living museum’.
Nearly two years on and plans for the
museum and auxiliary projects are still in the design process, and the
parklets have been tabled indefinitely.
