The approved plans for 3 Oceans’ Iconic Scarborough development reveal some of what people can expect from the twin towers, with more detailed designs to come following consultation with the City of Stirling and relevant agencies.

Ground floor

The ground floor includes a proposed surf shop, wine store, WA market hall, tapas-style restaurant and wood-fired pizza restaurant.

There are alfresco areas to West Coast Highway and Scarborough Beach Road, and a western and central plaza.

The hotel lobby entrance will be facing Scarborough Beach Road.

Hotel

The four-star hotel will offer 199 rooms across levels three to five of the development, which is part of the podium structure.

The third floor includes a pool and outdoor area, kiosk and hotel spa.

Apartments

314 residential apartments will be spread across levels six to 39 in the western 43-storey tower and levels six to 31 in the eastern 33-storey tower.

These include affordable housing options and at the other end of the scale, a 680sq m penthouse on level 39 that includes five bedrooms, four bathrooms, two balconies, a theatre, games room and pool.

Parking

The 720 parking bays are spread across two basement levels and five upper levels, with 100 public parking bays. It proposes entry via West Coast Highway, with a new crossover created, and a second crossover from Filburn Street to the second floor.

Features

A WA Coastal Experience centre is planned to run across the first and second floors, though Tourism WA noted it would not be involved.

Two restaurants and a wine/cocktail bar will be on the first floor and above this will be a convention centre and meeting rooms.

Level 40 will include an exhibition space and a café or bar, while level 41 will offer the observation and sky decks.

A restaurant on the 42nd floor is likely to be a drawcard.

There will also be roof decks on level 32 of the eastern tower and level 43.
