A $5 million foreshore development in Eglinton is taking shape, with a cafe and bar under construction expected to open in 2019.

Stockland is developing the foreshore precinct in Amberton Beach estate and opened a direct beach access point from Cinnabar Drive in July, with a playground and stairs to the beach due to open this month.

A 1.5ha park adjacent to the cafe and bar is also planned for completion next year.

WA general manager residential Col Dutton said the cafe would cater to about 200 people and include internal and external dining areas set 16m above sea level with views of the Indian Ocean.

“The next stage is about to commence with the construction of the cafe and bar, which is the first of its kind in the area due to its proximity to the ocean,” he said.

“This pristine stretch of coastline is a drawcard for many residents.

“Foreshore amenities will give residents and visitors another excellent location where they can gather for a meal with friends and family.”

The playground adjacent to the dining space will be fully-enclosed, and there will be a barbecue, shade shelter, seating, drinking fountains and three beach wash-down showers.

The estate, which will ultimately have more than 2500 dwellings, also has a skate bowl, AFL-sized sports field, outdoor exercise stations, pirate playground, scooter park and network of cycle and footpaths.
