A BOUTIQUE apartment complex, which was officially opened on Friday, became the first new property in the heart of the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA) led Scarborough Beach redevelopment zone to be released to the public.

“Edge Scarborough would not have been possible without the foresight of the City of Stirling and the MRA to allow new and innovative development close to the beach,” First National Druitt & Shead selling agent Rob Druitt said.

“Scarborough MLA Liza Harvey officially opened the building and has also been a great advocate for the redevelopment of Scarborough since she was elected in 2008.”

The redevelopment, which is expected to cost about $100 million over three years, is a collaboration between the State Government and the City of Stirling.

It will include a $26 million waterfront swimming pool built by Stirling Council, Scarborough Square with new cafes and restaurants, and a Beach Hub with all-season play facilities.

Edge Scarborough, designed by Marcello Carbone and built by Zorzi’s Mercedes Construction, is a complex of 10 two-bedroom luxury apartments.

“It’s been fantastic to see the concept come to reality with the combination of a bespoke design, an innovative building company and a spectacular location offering buyers an opportunity into the area,” Mr Druitt said.

“Since we launched, two apartments have already sold and eight are still available.”

The complex also includes two commercial properties, both of which have been taken up.
