Project WA | Defining designs
With Mandurah’s population expected to grow to
117,000 by 2021, LandCorp’s Mandurah Junction
project will play an important role in providing
employment prospects, much-needed housing
choices, and opportunities for affordable living for
people seeking reduced car usage.
Apartments in Mandurah currently make up just
6.1 per cent of the overall housing types, compared
to 9.4 per cent in the Perth metropolitan area.
Offering a vibrant community with a distinctive,
laid-back Mandurah vibe, this high-quality
development by LandCorp includes a mix of houses,
townhouses, and apartments for up to 2000 people,
as well as office and retail space.
Located by the Mandurah train station, bus
interchange and ‘park and ride’ facility, it also caters
to those who are either without vehicles or who are
looking to minimise their use. Stage one landscaping
saw the creation of three new parks and recreation
areas, complete with barbecue and picnic areas,
interactive public art, walking and cycling tracks,
a kickabout area, and a boardwalk. Preparations
for a community garden are currently underway
with local not-for-profit group, Intework.
COST $22m (estimated)
