Community a focus for iconic new Canning Bridge development
Posted 27 . 10 . 15
Stirling Capital has partnered with FORM to deliver a $1.5 million Public Art and Culture program for its new $80 million Canning Bridge development, granted approval by the City of Melville LDAP* today.
Planning is underway and community input will soon be sought on potential options for the ground floor tenancy where space will be made available for the community.
These facilities will be part of a 20 level, twin-tower luxury apartment development straddling Kishorn and Ogilvie Roads, to be built in two stages.
Designed by MJA – McDonald Jones Architects – the towers will provide 232 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments ranging in size from 51 to 145 square meters.
Apartments will be priced from $450,000 to $1,700,000, and will appeal to professionals and downsizers wanting to remain in the area.
The development will feature a spectacular 2,500sqm oasis of landscaped gardens, a gym, heated lap pool, steam and sauna rooms, private dining areas, theatre, library and small bar on the ground level.
Stirling Capital Managing Director, Luke Reinecke said: “It is likely to be an iconic development and will bring vibrancy and activity to an area which is undergoing significant transformation.”
“It is the first development approved in the precinct since the adoption of the Canning Bridge Structure Plan by Council and provides a benchmark for future development likely to progress in the area.
“Involving the community at the outset means that spaces within the development may be tailored to meet their needs,” Luke said.
Located 8 kilometres south of Perth CBD, the site is a short walk to the Swan River, close to great schools, a 24 hour supermarket, Garden City shopping centre, and is well serviced by public transport, being in close proximity to the Canning Bridge train station and high frequency bus routes along Canning Highway.
A total of 283 car parking bays will be provided for commercial, residential and public use. Charging stations for electric cars will also feature.
145 dedicated bicycle parking spaces will be provided, 39 of these for public use, along with five scooter parking bays. End-of-trip facilities at both towers will include a mix of male, female and disabled toilets, showers, lockers and towel racks.
Sales launch in early 2016 with first stage building completion aimed for 2018.
Commercial opportunities will soon be available.
