School site chosen, childcare centre sale and more in the latest fortnightly installment of Business News' wrap-up of property deals. 

School for sustainability, entrepreneurship sited

Lateral Capital Ventures, on behalf of Green Total, has finalised the funding for the purchase of a 20.7-hectare site in Metricup, near Margaret River, where a school for sustainability and entrepreneurship will be developed.

 Lateral Capital Ventures chief executive Tommy Shin said Green Total had been eyeing a number of land parcels in the South West.

A feasibility study had outlined the area as a desired location, based on increasing demand for education in the region, as well as its close proximity to the Busselton Airport. “

When we think of green, we think of Margaret River,” Mr Shin said.

“The whole ethos of the school is to teach them about sustainability, renewable energy as well as global citizenship.”

The sale is anticipated to settle next month, with the funding and purchase price undisclosed.

Following approval of a rezoning of the site from residential to commercial, Green Total anticipates the school to open in 2023.

“We want to grow a generation of young people who are inspired to make a difference in our world,” Green Total executive director and founder Sabrina Liu said.

The school will comprise a main campus to accommodate kindergarten to year 12 students, a multi-sports field and arts centre, among other features.
