Cockburn Central expands offering Stage 2 to development market Stage 2
• LandCorp has called for Expressions of Interest (EOI) from developers to purchase and develop the four remaining mixed-use lots of Stage 2 which range in size from 3,299 sqm to 1.05ha.
• The EOI closes at 2pm WST on 4 September 2012.
• Updated design guidelines have been prepared for the land release.
• LandCorp is progressing the structure planning for a 30ha of government owned land immediately west of the existing town centre.
• Consisting predominantly of degraded scrub, that site has the potential to become an extension of the Cockburn Central Town Centre. It is proposed to include significant regional recreation and tertiary research and education facilities with significant mixed-use residential development.
About the project
• Cockburn Central is one of the Governments priority projects that will demonstrate the delivery of Activity Centre precincts under the state government’s Directions 2031 framework.
• Capitalising on its proximity next to one of Perth’s busiest train and bus interchanges on the Mandurah rail line, Cockburn Central Town Centre is emerging as a high quality, transit-oriented, mixed-use centre with a strong sense of place.
• The town centre is being developed in two stages.
• LandCorp is undertaking planning and development work to deliver activated urban places (Activity Centres) in the metropolitan area including the Cockburn Coast redevelopment, the Murdoch Mixed Use Precinct, the redevelopment of Claremont North East Precinct centred on the Claremont Football Oval and Mandurah Junction.
• Stage 1 lots have now all been sold and development begun. Purchasers included the Fire and Emergency Services Authority, Giorgi Group, the City of Cockburn, Australand and the Department of Housing. Stage 2 lots will be released to the developer market in the near future.
• Stage 1 was released to market in 2006 and all lots have sold. Eight of the twelve sites are fully constructed with a further two in planning.
• Developers in Stage 1 have consistently achieved strong sales figures for residential and commercial / retail product since then.
• The town centre’s success was underpinned at an early stage when the relocation of Fire and Emergency Services Authority’s HQ was secured.
• An innovative apartment and commercial development by the Department of Housing features a futuristic design, unique landscaping, and the ability to incorporate universal and adaptable design across the majority of the units on top of a range of energy efficient features. Living Space, on Signal Terrace, provides a mix of rental accommodation for affordable living and units for sale by private treaty and shared equity.
• Lot 2 has been sold to the WA Police for the planned Cockburn Central Police Hub.
• Lot 7 was sold to the City of Cockburn and Lot 13 to Giorgi Group for a commercial development facing Beeliar Drive.
• The balance of Stage1 land was sold to Australand for a staged rollout of predominantly residential apartments with some retail/ commercial facing the town square known as “The Siding”.
• Australand has recently released its fifth apartment offering at Cockburn Central – Kingston which will deliver 41 new apartments.
