FOR The Assembly’s first buyer Michelle Tan, affordability and the opportunity to live near Fremantle made buying in the Coolbellup estate an easy decision.
The 28 year old, who works in the port city, loves the suburban lifestyle and being close to home.
“I love working in Fremantle and being able to just go down to the beach and local markets on the weekends” she said.
“The blocks at The Assembly were affordable and close to shops, schools and public transport.”
The first-home buyer is planning to build a three or four-bedroom, two-bathroom house with two car bays on her 375sq m lot and move in within 12 months.
“I love the parks and all the established trees and it seems like a really nice area. I can’t wait to move in and get to know my new neighbours,” she said.
Forty per cent of stage one lots have sold at The Assembly, Lendlease and LandCorp’s redevelopment of the third and final former school site in Coolbellup.
At the former Koorilla school location, The Assembly follows The Primary and The Playground developments.
The 4ha parcel of land, which is bordered by Coolbellup Avenue, Cordelia Avenue, Benedick Road and Rosalind Way, features 40 green-title residential lots ranging from 188-462sq m and one grouped dwelling site.
Remaining lots priced from $220,000 are available as land-only sites or house-and-land packages.
Anthony Rowbottam, general manager of the Lendlease Communities business in WA, said a great range of stage one lots were available including Summit Homes Group house-and-land packages.
“This is the last development of former school sites in Coolbellup and may be your final opportunity to build your dream home in this established, leafy suburb,” he said.
The Assembly’s planning and urban design was carefully considered and inspired by the site’s former school use.
“A significant investment in advanced native trees and plantings will ensure the area’s natural beauty and amenity is highlighted for all residents and visitors,” Mr Rowbottam said.
LandCorp chief executive Frank Marra said Lendlease and LandCorp had delivered vibrant new communities in Coolbellup that were being recognised throughout the state, with The Primary winning the award for best residential development under 250 lots at the UDIA WA Awards for Excellence.
