Defining designs | Project WA
Addressing the key topic of urban sprawl, and
creating communities where people want to work,
live and play, an under-utilised parcel of land
alongside the Swan River is being developed by
LandCorp into a high-quality living environment
with housing and commercial opportunities.
The transformation will include bicycle and
pedestrian pathways, access to the river, dining and
entertainment offerings, and public open spaces.
When complete, it will be home to more than 1700
people and offer 10,000sqm of office space.
Situated just 5km from the Perth CBD, the first
few complexes have been completed, including
Spring View Towers by Finbar, Ace Apartments
from Oracle Projects, and Regatta Apartments by
Motus Architecture. Other apartments include
Arbor North by Finbar, Proximity Apartments
by Blackburne Property Group, The Collective
Apartments by Edge Visionary Living, Flo by
Psaros, and Tribeca by BGC. BGC also has plans to
develop a hotel and office tower in the estate.
TIMELINE Approximately 10 years
A landmark new hospital for the Pilbara is now
closer, with Brookfield Multiplex to design and
construct the new $207.15m project.
It marks the single biggest investment in
a public hospital ever undertaken in regional WA.
Funded through the Royalties for Regions program
and $650,000 through the Pilbara Health Initiative,
the project is a joint venture between the State
Government and the WA Chamber of Minerals
and Energy. The hospital will be designed and
built to meet the health needs of the growing
Pilbara community so it has health care closer to
home. It will double the number of emergency
department bays, and include a state-of-the-art
CT scanner, a brand new surgical centre, new
maternity wing and delivery suites, helipad, and
expanded outpatient facilities.
It is an important step in the continuing
transformation of Karratha into a vibrant City
of the North.
