The City of Joondalup is located in the heart of one of Australia’s fastest growing regions – Perth’s Northern Growth Corridor.

Skylines and good times: The CBD’s rising ambitions
Prime House

Commanding the heights above Lake Joondalup, the Joondalup City Centre is fast evolving as a dynamic place to do business.

With Joondalup’s iconic council chambers in the heart of Boas Place, the City Centre encompasses a world-class hospital, Edith Cowan University – an internationally linked campus, and Lakeside Joondalup Shopping City, one of WA’s largest and most acclaimed retail centres.

These civic and business jewels stand amid tranquil bushland lined boulevards, well-ordered streets and strategically sited business hubs.

Now the push is on to transform this strongly established City Centre into a magnet for jobs and growth through the Joondalup Activity Centre Plan.

Its goal is to grow employment in the Joondalup City Centre to 45,000 jobs by 2050, and this ambition is fast becoming reality through building projects that are transforming the City’s skyline and growing its fortunes.

New developments driving Joondalup’s growth

● The $32 million Prime House multi-storey office development is now open for business.

● 700 state government workers have been relocated to the Joondalup City Centre with most taking up tenancy at Prime House - a major boost to local business.

● A state-of-the-art $50 million science facility has just opened at ECU’s Joondalup campus designed to boost the City’s growing status as a centre for innovation. Two floors are devoted to cyber security.

● The $85 million Arthouse high-rise apartment complex is under construction and will add to soaring views in the City’s skyline.

● Quest Hotel on Boas Avenue has opened its doors with 90 serviced apartments offering luxury accommodation for business travellers.

● A multi-storey car park with close to 600 bays has been constructed on Boas Avenue to support the growing workforce.

The next investment opportunity: Boas Place

With a new wave of professional workers, retail outlets, innovation drivers and property investors flocking to the City Centre, Joondalup is thriving.

The Boas Place development will unite the City’s civic, cultural, retail, transport, recreation and education hubs.

Right in the heart of the City Centre, Boas Place will be a vibrant mix of commercial, retail, residential and commercial spaces that create a compelling urban experience of landmark buildings.

Each element of the development represents a significant investment opportunity:

● An A Grade office building ideally suited to a major anchor tenant.

● Hotel/short stay accommodation.

● Civic square and other public spaces.

● Residential options – for example student accommodation, independent living units.

● Retail/commercial options.

● Underground car parking.

Opportunities for private investors, developers and other relevent businesses with a focus on digital, medical, education and cyber are set to be a part of the symbolic development.

Once constructed, the Boas Place development could create at least 2,900 jobs with at least 63 per cent of them filled by locals, boosting the economic sustainability of the region.

The total ongoing economic benefit to Joondalup is expected to be $648 million.

Joondalup’s leaders are now seeking investor support to bring this unique vision for Boas Place to life and share the bright future the City is creating.
