CONSTRUCTION has started on a beachside cafe in Jindalee, which is expected to open early next year.
Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts, Satterley development manager Grant Wilkins, Mathew Walker representing the operator Nummus and Design Management Group architect Lindsay Allen visited the site on March 9 to mark the start of construction.
The $2.5 million building will have a 200-seat cafe overlooking the ocean and an alfresco area overlooking the foreshore park on Reflection Boulevard.
There will also be a kiosk fronting the park to serve takeaway coffee, ice creams and snacks, as well as public toilets underneath and storage for Surf Lifesaving WA equipment.
“We are very excited the construction has commenced on the new cafe,” Mr Wilkins said.
“(It will) make the foreshore park a vibrant area for families to enjoy all year around.”
Last month, the Wanneroo council unanimously agreed to enter a development deed for the site with Ocean Springs Pty Ltd to develop the cafe and surf lifesaving facility at 100 Aurora Boulevard.
It approved granting Ocean Springs a ground lease for 20 years and the City will put $10,000 a year in its asset replacement reserve for the duration of the lease.
