STAGE one works for the future City Gardens Booragoon project will begin mid-next year after the Joint Development Assessment Panel approved plans last week.
The $400 million project will establish the district as a premium hub of residential and business occupants.
Builder TRG Properties said the project will offer an eastern states-style retail living lifestyle.
Stage one, on the corner of Davy and Marmion streets, will house 122 one- two- and three-bedroom apartments and is budgeted at $90 million with completion slated for 2018.
The finished product will be part of a bigger picture for the City of Melville, which hopes the revamped city centre will encourage a boost in community’s amenities, including new community activities, cinemas and a revitalised High Street.
TRG Properties chief operating officer Tanya Trevisan said City Gardens Booragoon would provide WA with its premium amenities in a sought-after suburb.
“The idea of combining shopping, dining, entertainment and living is being embraced both by residential buyers and by shopping centre owners and investors,” she said.
The Garden City precinct will undergo a $750 million redevelopment after owner AMP Capital submitted plans to the City of Melville last month.
