PROPERTY developer Cedar Woods has announced plans to develop a $25 million, 21,000 square metre home maker centre in Balcatta designed to attract bulky goods retailers in an integrated homewares site.
Cedar Woods chief executive Paul Sadleir said the local council had supported the rezoning of the site to cater for the proposed use, which allowed the sale of bulky goods.
“Retailers excluded from trading in the area had instead decided to occupy premises in other areas, such as Scarborough Beach Road and Joondalup,” he said.
Mr Sadleir said the site, located on the corner of Balcatta Road and Bendsten Place in Balcatta, was well located to both the Reid Highway and the Mitchell Freeway and would serve the growing residential areas of Carine, Hamersley, Karrinyup and Duncraig.
“The area has already attracted national retailers such as Bunnings, Clarks Rubber and WA Salvage, however the shortage of vacant land in Balcatta limits the number of remaining opportunities to access this catchment area,” he said.
The development will provide a series of modules ranging in size from 250 metres to 7,500 metres, which can be tailored to each tenant’s requirements. There’s also parking for 720 cars.
Development is expected to begin later this year and take approximately 12 months.
