The state government has chosen Knutsford Consortium, including Fini Group, Georgiou Capital and Mainpart Holdings, to partner LandCorp to develop a former industrial site near Fremantle into a residential precinct.
Lands Minister Brendon Grylls made the announcement today.
Fremantle architect Michael Patroni from Spaceagency will lead the consortium's design with input from a highly-renowned multidisciplinary project team.
Mr Grylls said the consortium's submission was particularly strong in design quality, accommodation diversity, affordability and environmental leadership.
"LandCorp in conjunction with the Knutsford Consortium, will be focused on making this site an integral part of the Fremantle community through relevant, thoughtful urban design and contemporary architecture." he said.
Ross Holt, CEO, LandCorp said the development was a rare opportunity to rejuvenate a unique development infill site in Fremantle.
"We will work collaboratively with the Knutsford Consortium and other stakeholders to deliver this innovative medium-density residential project, which will introduce considerable community amenity to what was once an old industrial precinct," Mr Holt said.
The consortium's proposal features a wide variety of accommodation options, from single residential dwellings, townhouses to grouped dwellings and apartments of varying types and sizes.
The dwellings are being designed to be both flexible and adaptable to accommodate the changing demographics of our future population, family structures and the ability to support intergenerational living arrangements.
