Edge Visionary Living is pleased to announce its appointment by the Department of Communities to deliver high quality apartments, commercial and creative space in Fremantle’s east end.
Comprising 265 apartments over five buildings, the $129 million project promises to contribute to the ongoing regeneration of Fremantle and provide people the opportunity to live cost effectively in the area.
“Edge Visionary Living is WA’s premium apartment developer and despite having projects all over Perth, this is an exciting new area for us,” Managing Director Gavin Hawkins said.
“We are looking forward to working closely with the Department of Communities to bring our residential apartment expertise to affordable housing,” he said.
The Burt Street development is located on a 1.4ha site and benefits from close proximity to Fremantle CBD, the Arts Centre, Leisure Centre, and public transport networks. In collaboration with award-winning Hillam Architects, this inclusive community has been thoughtfully designed to reflect the vibrancy of the port city through its built form and shared open space.
Hillam Architects’ Principal David Hillam is proud to be contributing an enduring architectural aesthetic to this unique initiative.
“Following the lead of the Department’s commitment to establishing inclusive communities, we have taken care to complement a mix of diverse housing solutions. Burt Street will also include live-work artist studios and makerspace to encourage emerging talents to access affordable accommodation and studio space,” Mr Hillam said.
“It was crucial too, that we incorporate sustainability initiatives into the blueprint to future proof the apartments and ensure they remain affordable in the long term.”
Following a period of community consultation and development approvals, the first stage of works is anticipated for October 2021.
As Perth’s leading premium apartment developer, Edge Visionary Living brings a wealth of experience to the Burt Street development. Recently completed projects include Botanical Apartments in Subiaco, which last year won a UDIA WA Award for Excellence in Medium Density, and Vantage Riversedge in Rivervale. Other developments currently under construction are the prestigious Eden Floreat, and Arthouse Joondalup, which is due for building completion later this year.
