Actually the question posed was "Where was that photo taken from?" as opposed to "What is this photo taken of"?

As if you look at the photo the development is clearly a corner of two roads and the photo is taken from a higher position back from the corner.

I looked up the corner and the old back packers in street view is the development site and that corner is the corner of Brighton Road and WC Hwy.

I think the real answer Dilaz is looking for is:

The photo looks like it was taken from the very Western corner of Oceanna 29 of 29 Hastings Street, Scarborough.

Like the idea (as I have said before, the first location to build an ocean pool in Perth will suddenly become the number one beach destination), but not so keen on the location or the execution.

However, if Mosman Park council are the ones to do it, there is no real choice on the location - as they only manage a few hundred metres of ocean frontage along Curtin Ave - south of Cottesloe and north of Freo. Also shows how cashed up they must be if they can fund this with an area of 4.3km2!! And with no apparent plan for a commercial precinct / kiosks or anything to go with the pool!

Personally I would still prefer an ocean pool alongside an existing groyne / sea wall (southern end of Port Beach, Alongside South Cott Groyne, Cottesloe Groyne, or one along City Beach / Floreat Beach etc). Less intrusive, and less effect on longshore drift etc.

Mosman Park can make a riverside pool though! I am sure they would love all the new visitors to their suburb!!

edit - Looking at this area on google maps I see that the proposed location is right in front of the disused railyards that are prime for a game changing ocean front development. Town of Mosman Park trying to get the jump before MRA take over a large portion of their domain?

New proposal in Scarborough by Cedar Woods and DMG Architecture. Not sure exactly what site it is.

Looks like that's CeVue apartments on the left. I wonder what the southern elevation looks like.

I'm disappointed with the lack of street activation along brighton road, with nothing from Cevue, i was really hoping the south side of the street would deliver. Totally blown the chance to connect west coast highway shops with the esplanade.

It also looks like a single cafe as the only tenany.. poor effort given the development is over 3 blocks. and is that two garage entries? surely not necessary? Otherwise visually its quite striking. Curved balconies paying somewhat of a tribute to the historic Sandbar building, and looks far less disjointed than CeVue's curves to rigid line transition.

Agree there, though I don't think it's necessary to activate Brighton Road. It's MRA so you'll get a chance to make a few comments.
