Thirty-four local workers will be involved in the construction of 14 terrace homes, featuring bespoke design and strong sustainability features, is expected to be completed in late 2021.
The architecturally-designed homes are being delivered by DevelopmentWA as part of a partnership with TERRACE Homes, and are being sold on a turnkey basis.
Four terrace homes are now available for sale, with a further seven coming to the market later in the year. Three terrace homes have already been sold.
Eligible buyers may also be able to access the McGowan Government's Building Bonus and the Commonwealth's Home Builder grants.
Salt Lane will apply a fresh approach to medium-density housing and offer a diverse new range of housing close to Fremantle, including a total 35 terrace homes close to parklands which feature a kick-about space, shaded areas, picnic tables and benches, barbeque and a boardwalk.
Shoreline, which will ultimately be home to 5,000 people in 2,500 houses, is a visionary coastal development. On completion the development will include a primary school and provide over 10,000sqm of retail and commercial space, supporting 780 jobs for Western Australians.
