    • New health and knowledge precinct near university and hospital in Murdoch
    • LandCorp releasing Stage 1A this week following significant interest

    The Liberal National Government today released the first lots of a health and knowledge hub, which will eventually deliver 400 residences and 33,000 square metres of commercial space next to the $2 billion Fiona Stanley Hospital in Murdoch.

     

    Lands Minister Terry Redman said a range of businesses had expressed interest in developing or occupying the lots, which are planned to provide a collaborative environment for cutting-edge research and development and services in the health and education sectors.

     

    More than 100 interested parties have downloaded details about the precinct, while more than 30 developers, health-related businesses and other proponents have already registered their interest.

     

    Mr Redman said the Stage 1A release in the health precinct included three lots, ranging in size from 2,966sqm to 5,965sqm and presented an opportunity for land uses that were health and education-related, as well as commercial, retail and residential apartments.

     

    "We are targeting medical research and commercial activities, health tourism, consulting suites, clinics, community health and medical research facilities, education services and other complementary industries," he said.

     

    The Minister said the precinct was part of the broader Murdoch Specialised Activity Centre, which would become a vibrant employment centre delivering up to 35,000 jobs, homes for 22,000 residents and facilities for up to 44,000 students.

     

    "The precinct is one of many State Government projects supporting Perth's growing population through the delivery of diverse urban housing choices connected to job opportunities and essential infrastructure," he said.

     

    The three Stage 1A lots in the health precinct are available via a Request for Proposal process and close 2pm (WST) on December 15, 2016.
