Foreshore towers get the green light
December 11th, 2019, 06:00PM

A 15-STOREY, three-tower development has been approved to overlook the river at Applecross despite community and council concerns about its impact on the area.

The Metro Central Joint Development Assessment Panel yesterday decided to give the green light to Edge Visionary Living’s $121 million, 224-apartment complex titled Canning Beach Promenade.

Presiding member Megan Adair said while concerns about the development were a part of the consideration, the area was undergoing a transition and the overall design of the building was of an international standard.

At today’s meeting the panel heard deputations from several people concerned that the buildings were actually 18 storeys and that community benefits proposed were not proportionate to the extra heights being sought.

Edge Visionary Living representatives along with lawyers and planners spoke positively about the development.

Melville council showed its disdain for the development at a meeting in late November when it voted not to support the plans.

The site is part of the 10-storey area, with further height allowed provided developers can show community benefits.

Among the council’s reasons for not supporting the development at the time were community benefits not being proportionate to the proposed extra storeys, the impact of the development on the foreshore area and Canning Bridge and that it was actually 16-storeys.

Among the features of the proposed development is a common podium design at the base of the towers made up of a ground floor and two more levels on the 6431sqm site.

The developer has touted large gaps between the towers to promote “view corridors” for neighbouring developments.

The north-western tower is set back about 17m from the boundary which borders the residential area.

The development will include five food and beverage tenancies, public changing infrastructure and 640sqm of community facilities, including a resources centre which will be handed over to the City of Melville.

Edge Visionary Living executive director Gavin Hawkins previously said some of the other community benefits would be disabled facilities, a $500,000 community art contribution, health spa and kayak hire.

Anything that isn't designed by SS Chang, or look similar to any design chosen by Finbar executives.

They mean from another countries perspective the design is international. To us it's just standard.

Planning changes pave way for Royal George revamp
Dan Wilkie Wednesday, 18 December, 2019 - 09:52

Developer Saracen Properties will start work early next year on a heritage restoration of East Fremantle’s historic Royal George Hotel, after Planning Minister Rita Saffioti approved changes to planning guidelines to facilitate the development.

Ms Saffioti announced today that new development controls had been put in place for the site, with a 28-metre height limit, around a metre higher than the hotel’s spire, to ensure the project is in keeping with local character.

Saracen Properties had originally proposed to build a 21-storey apartment building alongside the restored landmark.

Project director Joel Saraceni said the company had been working with the Minister’s office, the Western Australian Planning Commission and the Town of East Fremantle for the last two years, describing the guideline changes as a “balanced outcome”.

“It gives us the certainty now to go on with the whole project and restore the heritage building,” Mr Saraceni told Business News.

“(The height limit) is well under what we originally designed and put forward, but all things considered it is a pretty balanced outcome and gives us the scope to do a really good design on the balance of the site.”

Mr Saraceni said design works would commence in January for the non-heritage portion of the site, while restoration work was set to begin in March.

Construction on the apartments component is not expected to begin for at least 12 months, and is subject to development approval and a successful pre-sales program.

Discussions with potential builders for the heritage component were under way, Mr Saraceni said, with the Royal George Hotel to be restored to its former status with a significant hospitality offering.

Saracen Properties has been working with Fremantle-based architecture group Spaceagency on the redevelopment plan.

“The idea is it will be a restaurant, bar, short stay accommodation and an urban winery or gin distillery in the basement area,” he said.

Another Woolworths development proposed for inner city. This time Charles St North Perth, replacing derelict/vacant sites.

Looks good. Hope this also triggers Coles to upgrade the North Perth store (really needs a total rebuild - and could be funded by sales of apartments above).

But also hopefull the Bulwer St store doesn't stall/fall behind this one... with the Bulwer St location likely becoming my new local supermarket.

How is it multiple Woolworths are popping up in the city area adding to the already multiple Woolworths yet all Coles can seem to manage is a half arsed one in crammed into Raine Square (that doesn't honour catalogue specials) and another half arsed one that closed down in Northbridge lol. I think Woolworths are the better supermarket anyway, Coles feels too sterile and more corporate somehow. Plus those red and white plastic bags with handles they provide are hideous. I like the lightweight material grey or green ones that fold into the size of a matchbox that Woolies offer.
