    • Expressions of interest sought to develop Reserve Street land in Scarborough
    • Rare beachfront opportunity for new residential or mixed-use development
    • Site offers sweeping ocean and city views and easy access to popular foreshore attractions

    One of the most sought-after sites in Scarborough is on the market with expressions of interest sought for redevelopment of the Reserve Street land.

     

    Lands Minister Ben Wyatt said today the sale offers a prime opportunity for an exciting development that maximises its location on one of Perth's iconic beachfronts and complements the revitalisation of Scarborough.

     

    Lot 500 Reserve Street is a 6,442 square metre site fronting West Coast Highway and situated on the northern end of Scarborough Beach. The site is zoned for an eight to 12 storey development with shops, bars or cafés on the ground floor, providing opportunities for visitors and locals to work, shop or enjoy a meal with a view.

     

    The site is currently used as a car park managed by the City of Stirling. The developer will be required to incorporate 100 public car parking bays as part of this development.

     

    Expressions of interest close at 2pm on February 26, 2020. For more information and agent details, visit https://www.dplh.wa.gov.au/information-and-services/crown-land/land-asset-sales 

     

    Comments attributed to Lands Minister Ben Wyatt:

     

    "Scarborough has a long history as one of Perth's most popular beaches and that popularity continues to grow as more developers are drawn to invest in the area.

     

    "The Reserve Street land is one of the largest sites on Scarborough Beach and offers a rare development opportunity to deliver an exciting destination for tourists and local residents.

     

    "The sale of this land will offset the State Government's investment in revitalising Scarborough Beach, creating new foreshore destinations that will continue to attract and entertain visitors for many years to come."
