THE Mullaloo Squash Centre could be replaced with apartments.

The City of Joondalup has received a development application from Helm Living for a four-storey, 23-unit development at 25 Koorana Road, near the Mullaloo Plaza Shopping Centre.

It proposes to have eight three-bedroom, 11 two-bedroom and four one-bedroom units, with five on the ground floor and six each on the next three floors.

It also proposes 43 residential and five visitor car parking bays, and eight residential and two visitor bicycle parking bays.

However, the applicant is seeking discretions in the areas of building height, boundary setbacks, visitor parking bays, bicycle parking, site works, retaining walls, storeroom sizes and dwelling diversity.

Developer and Helm Living co-owner Brad Kelly said the apartments were designed for “local area owner/occupiers looking to move from larger nearby homes”.

He described the site as a “very unique elevated location offering ocean views, even from ground level, combined with treetop and sweeping parkland views of Charonia Reserve”.

“Seventy per cent of the apartments are north facing and all apartments allow cross ventilation to utilise the cooling breezes,” he said.

The City is seeking feedback on the proposal until March 29 via info@joondalup.wa.gov.au or PO Box 21, Joondalup WA 6919.
