Initial EOI process grinds to a standstill

Councillors at a special meeting on May 21 endorsed a recommendation to terminate its current EOI process for a commercial and office development at the site of the City’s administration building, the Lotteries House building and car park, or a combination of both.

Though Seven Capital (Perth) had been identified as the preferred respondent, negotiations had not been successful.

The new EOI process will |incorporate a minimum of 12,000sq m of office accommodation and a hotel and short stay development to be integrated with residential, retail and other commercial components across both sites.

It is possible a State Government department could become the tenant of the 12,000sq m office building. ‘The City will continue to lobby the State Government to bring that to fruition,’ Joondalup Mayor Troy Pickard said.

He said the development would increase the number of people who visited Joondalup for work, retail and commercial purposes.
