Mirvac’s $52.5 million eight-storey Burswood apartment complex, forming part of its 17-hectare Peninsula precinct, has received development approval.

A Joint Development Assessment Panel today approved the Ador development, comprising 88 luxury apartments on Bow River Crescent near Optus Stadium.

The building will contain a mix of one to four bedroom apartments, public open space, 159 car bays and 54 bicycle parking spaces.

Its communal areas will feature a ground level swimming pool, a rooftop residential lounge, dining room and work from home area.

A Mirvac spokesperson said the total value of the project is expected to reach $96 million. 

Mirvac’s Peninsula precinct includes luxury apartments and townhouses, landscaped parks and gardens, as well as retail and dining venues, expected to be developed in coming years.

Mirvac Group residential development WA general manager Paige Walker said the latest development was part of “an exciting period of transformation” for the area.

“Ador represents the evolution of Mirvac’s The Peninsula, Burswood masterplan,” she said.

“The dynamic facade with sweeping lines provides an articulated and engaging built form which will contribute to the design excellence of the community.

“The design is driven by the desire to embrace the river and landmark views of the Swan River, Matagarup Bridge and Optus Stadium and will provide a new profile for the precinct.”

The Town of Victoria Park earlier this month recommended the project be approved on several conditions.

These include requirements around heritage planning linked to the Burswood canal, as well as landscaping, public art, infrastructure and sustainability guidelines being met.

The project drew opposition from some residents, who argued that the development deviated from a structure plan governing land use at Burswood Lakes.

It is understood Mirvac will apply to amend the relevant structure plan by the end of this year.

In late 2018, Mirvac received development approved for a 31-level, 97-dwelling residential tower in the same precinct.

The property giant has since advised that are not proceeding with the 31-storey complex at this point in time, yet its approval remains valid.

Planners Rowe Group designed the Ador complex.
