Projects & Discussions | Stirling City Centre (SCC) | Urban Renewal

Given the Alliance has a new website i thought it would be apt to give this major project its own thread. A potential $15billion development (similar in size and cost as Docklands).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Official Website
http://www.stirlingcitycentre.com.au/

City of Stirling
www.stirling.wa.gov.au/

Quote:
Stirling is proud to announce its goal to become ‘the world’s most sustainable city’ by 2031. The Stirling City Centre is emerging as a high-density people friendly city offering exciting lifestyle opportunities and world class facilities.
Quote:
The Stirling City Centre is driven by the Stirling Alliance – a collaborative partnership between the community, the government and the private sector committed to achieving ‘win-win’, best for community outcomes.
Quote:
Diversity

As the people’s city, Stirling celebrates diversity while striving for a sense of community.

Social diversity will be complemented by affordable housing, family dwellings and aged care facilities, as well as an array of cultural activities and recreational opportunities.

The Stirling City Centre will also embrace the challenge of bringing ecological diversity back to a currently degraded area. A particular focus is on the urban stream that extends from the city’s northern end, to Herdsman Lake in the south. The stream will assist with environmental remediation, recreational opportunities and dynamic aesthetics.

Plus, as one of WA’s primary strategic activity centres, Stirling will accommodate a variety of business and employment opportunities across commerce, education, research and industry; as well as the employment prospects normally found in metropolitan centres.

In terms of immediate development... we should start to see some plans in the coming months (more likely the end of the year) regarding what will be "Westfield Arcade".

Essentially it will be a link into Westfield Innaloo but will form the bulk of retail functions along what will be Stephenson Avenue and the "living stream". Of course, a lot of this hinges on the state budget and the outcomes of the Infrastructure Australia report.

I really like the idea of this development, it would make Stirling more like a city in its own right, as well as giving Osborne Park what is in my opinion a much needed facelift and upgrade

With the space available for development this could become a proper TOD / alternative CBD. It'll be fantastic if it goes ahead as planned (it's just a pity that damned IKEA store is in the way).

I avoid the new IKEA store like the plague, the built it so big that it attracts people, too many people, it's always so packed, and you can escape without doing a loop, terrible.

IKEA will give all the low cost housing and student housing tenants somewhere good to purchase low cost furniture, and for the students, eat.

Who here doesn't love IKEA's $3.50 breakfast?

Stirling Festival of Ideas

The Stirling City Centre project has just completed its "Festival of Ideas" forum.

Its findings are now online.

FESTIVAL OF IDEAS OUTCOMES

I encourage everyone to view this presentation as it gives a good outline of the proposal and its direction (17mb)

Great plan, I want to see it done as well. It's about as good integration with the Mitchell as you could probably get, but I'm not from Perth so I wouldn't know.

I get the intent (grammatically) but it's quite funny seeing a ? (Q mark) after 'world class beaches'.

The Alliance has since opened an office in Innaloo (near the old Ewin Street shops)...but the project seems to have lost a lot of traction.

I believe they were going to make a bid for Infrastructure Australia money but never made the cut.

I suspect some more updated, more detailed plans will be released soon with regards to the upgrade of Stirling train station, particularly the bus station and parking. It seems the first part of this project is going to be around IKEA and the station.

Oh thanks for that Aaron.
Interesting, I look forward to see what is planned for around the IKEA and the station in upcoming months then

I guess the City of Stirling is the website to review and not the Alliance's website if they've lost traction and fundings didn't get approved /go through....

I believe the first project will be duplicating the bus access to the station by creating a second bus access bridge on the southern side of the station.

This of course, would have to be done in tandem with some kind of "stage 1" development of Stephenson Avenue that crosses the Mitchell Freeway.

Initial problem; cost.
