CITY of Stirling will recommend a proposed four-storey, mixed-used development with 42 apartments and nine shops in Mirrabooka be approved by the Metropolitan North-West Joint Development Assessment Panel (JDAP).

Applicants MacCormac Architects’ $9.5 million Nuhaven development is planned for 19 Sudbury Road, Mirrabooka, which is currently occupied by a sales office, and located next to Mirrabooka Library and across from the bus station and The Square Mirrabooka.

The site was sold by the City of Stirling to current landowner Hampton Developments (WA) Pty Ltd in April 2017.

City officers have also recommended conditions including a right of carriageway easement, no obscure glazing permitted to the ground floor, a revised landscaping plan, five commercial car bays and 32 residential car bays.

According to a City officer’s report, with the imposition of appropriate conditions, the proposal will represent an acceptable form of development in the location.

Hampton Developments director James Wright said the Mirrabooka Town Centre was touted as one of Perth’s next significant growth suburbs following the City’s initiatives to create a centre with affordable living, commercial, retail, medical and aged care facilities.

“Nuhaven Apartments is the first mixed use development of its kind for the centre- not likely to be the only one in the years to come,” he said.

The JDAP will sit on January 17.
