Cockburn Central advances to Stage 2

• EOI sought from developers for Stage 2 of Cockburn Central Town Centre

• Civil works commence for Stage 2

• One of the Govt’s priority projects that demonstrates delivery of Activity Centres.

Cockburn Central Town Centre confirmed its position as one of the metropolitan area’s fastest growing Activity Centres with LandCorp, on behalf of the State Government, today calling for Expressions of Interest (EOI) from developers to purchase and develop the five remaining mixed-use lots of Stage 2.

Lands Minister Brendon Grylls said the successful transformation of Stage 1 had seen Cockburn Central Town Centre deliver residential apartments, business, lifestyle and recreation facilities in the southern suburbs.

“Cockburn Central Town Centre is one of the State Government’s priority projects that demonstrates the delivery of Activity Centres under the Directions 2031 and Beyond policy,” Mr Grylls said.

“The EOI seeks to identify suitable partners to develop one or more of the remaining mixed-use lots which range in size from 3,299sqm to 1.05ha.

“Updated design guidelines have been prepared for the land release to ensure Cockburn Central Town Centre continues to grow into a contemporary, attractive neighbourhood with an emphasis on liveability.”

Currently home to 550 residents in more than 300 apartments, the project is expected to ultimately house 2,000 residents and include 1,100 apartments. The existing retail and commercial space will expand from 15,000sqm to 21,500sqm.

The centre was expected to generate up to 1,000 jobs and the Minister said it would host two front-line government agencies - FESA headquarters and a planned Cockburn Central Police Hub.

“Civil works are under way for Stage 2 to ensure the land is ready for development as soon as the EOI and a subsequent request for proposal processes were completed,” Mr Grylls said.
