The Kailis family is planning to start its redevelopment of the Trigg Island cafe site next year, but it will be at least two years before it’s completed.
The family took over the lease of the site at Trigg last year when the City of Stirling refused to recommit to a lease with previous tenant Des de Clerk.
It reopened with the new name - Kailis Beach Café Trigg - under the new lease, which was secured for 10 years with initial rent of $150,000 per annum.
In negotiating the lease, the Kailises proposed refurbishing the site at a cost of between $2.5 million and $3.5 million.
It has now been announced that construction of a new development will commence next year. But firm plans for the site are being kept under wraps.
“Our vision is to bring vibrancy to the area with a stunning venue that delivers delicious, fresh, high quality food at an affordable price,” director George Victor Kailis said.
“We are working with (renowned interior designer) Hecker Guthrie on some exciting creative concepts that will set a new benchmark in design quality and appeal to people of all ages.”
The Kailis family also owns and operates the Kailis Fish Market Café at Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour.
