South Perth shines light on city-wide planning problems

Despite more than two years of uncertainty, a pair of Supreme Court challenges and two redesigns of his building, Gavin Hawkins remains committed to bringing one of the most contentious apartment projects in Perth development history to market.

And Mr Hawkins said he’d do it all again, even if he knew of those challenges when he first lodged a planning application to build the 29-level Lumiere development at 74 Mill Point Road in South Perth in early 2015.

“The reality is, it’s a great site and people want to live there, that’s borne out with the $80 million worth of sales that we had in the first three months when we launched way back in 2015,” Mr Hawkins told Business News.
