Australand's Port Coogee scoops UDIA pool

Australand is hoping the success of its $2 billion Port Coogee coastal marina project, which took out two national awards at the weekend, will stimulate the state government to allow more innovative developments in coastal locations.

The Port Coogee development took out two categories at the 2012 Urban Development Institute of Australia National Awards for Excellence; Best Residential development and Environmental Excellence.

The 85-hectare project was the only Western Australian development to win a national award.

Australand general manager Tony Perrin said the UDIA recognised the project’s significance to Perth’s waterfront and coastal development in Western Australia.

“These awards recognise more than a decade of comprehensive planning and extensive infrastructure works undertaken to deliver an unprecedented marina and residential development,” Mr Perrin said.

“The Environmental Excellence award confirms how professional management of sensitive environmental factors can allow transformation of oceanfront land into an environmentally sustainable coastal address.  

“Port Coogee’s success will hopefully provide the state government with further confidence to entrust the development industry as a whole to undertake innovative and futuristic developments in more coastal locations. “

The estate, located five kilometres south of Fremantle, will be home to more than 5,000 residents once complete, and comprises a 300-berth marina and up to 1,100 apartments alongside 12,000 square metres of retail space.

“The development offers a diverse range of housing options from family-sized lots, premium waterfront lots, future apartments and penthouses through to exclusive island home sites which merge seamlessly into the marina village located in the heart of the estate,” Mr Perrin said.
