With potential to redevelop up to 18 levels, the property represents an attractive opportunity to capitalise on the ongoing transformation of Burswood.  

“The Burswood peninsula precinct is positioned to become a vibrant and bustling residential precinct in the years ahead, boasting key attractions such as proximity to the CBD, transport links, the Swan River, Crown Perth and the thriving Victoria Park eating strip,” Mr Younger said. 

“With an expected population growth of 430% by 2036, Burswood is one of Perth’s fastest growing residential hubs.  This property has the potential to play a big part in the growth story of Burswood, providing accommodation and commercial business for the area’s expected 17,000 population.”

“It is hard to imagine a more prominent and key development site currently available that offers as much of a potential impact insofar as a gateway statement to the Perth CBD is concerned.  It is a sizeable parcel with excellent development scope positioned in a tranquil parkland setting with magnificent vistas across the Swan River to the city. Truly a unique and appealing offering that we are fortunate and very excited to be involved with.”
