SIXTY-FIVE apartments will be delivered under a partnership between the Housing Authority and LandCorp at Shoreline, the first precinct in the $4.9 billion redevelopment of the Cockburn Coast.
Housing Minister Colin Holt said the Housing Authority had acquired 2500sq m of land on Reinforcement Parade.
Most of that will be used for 65 one, two and three-bedroom apartment units, with about 750sq m of commercial space also available.
“This project will provide new affordable housing opportunities in a highly desirable area,” Mr Holt said.
“It will also provide a range of housing options, including full-market sales, shared equity ownership and social housing.”
The Shoreline development, located north of the power station and south of South Beach, will provide about 2500 medium to high density homes for about 5000 people.
The 47 hectare site will also include a primary school, sporting facilities and commercial and retail space.
Shoreline, together with the Hilltop and Power Station precincts, will be home to up to 12,000 people in 20 years time.
