Perth property development firm Stirling Capital's $20 million Marine Village Apartments proposal has been given the green light.
Perth property development firm Stirling Capital is set to begin its next project at North Coogee, following the approval of its $20 million Marine Village Apartments proposal.
The five-storey, mixed-use development, designed by MJA Studio architects, features 61 apartments, a commercial tenancy, gym and rooftop terrace.
The development, which has been touted as a gateway to the Port Coogee Marina, will be built across a 2,300 square metre lot on Orsino Boulevard, which has remained vacant since being titled.
But the site has been earmarked for development for several years, designated a ‘Development Zone’ for future residential, industrial or commercial development under the City of Cockburn’s local planning scheme.
The Metro Outer Joint Development Assessment Panel met on Friday to consider the proposal, voting to approve the development with a suite of conditions.
The development was considered to be ‘in keeping’ with the development in the area, sitting adjacent to a five-storey building, an aged care facility, a childcare centre and a supermarket.
The project isn’t the first proposed for the area by Stirling Capital, which was responsible for the delivery of the Barque Marina Village Apartments in 2018.
More than 1,100 apartments are expected to be delivered as part of the Port Coogee Marina development at Cockburn Sound, which is being spearheaded by Frasers Property Australia.
In March, data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics found North Coogee to be one of Perth’s fastest growing suburbs, with its population up 7.1 per cent in the year to June 2020.
