    High demand expected for prime Oyster Harbour land release

    15/10/2021 10:10 AM
    • Sales begin for new lots at Albany's Oyster Harbour residential estate
    • Lot sizes 544sqm to 694sqm available in premium coastal development
    • Homesites located just 10 minutes from Albany CBD, with views over Oyster Harbour, King River
    • Local contractor Landchoice Civil and Survey has commenced ground breaking works 

    Two new land releases at Albany's sought-after Oyster Harbour estate are being brought to market, with a total of 46 lots set to meet growing demand for residential land in the Great Southern city.


    Sales for new homesites in Stage 8a have started, with civil works now underway on 27 lots ranging in size from 544sqm to 694sqm.


    Prices for Stage 8a lots, which are ideal for families seeking space to grow, start from $165,000. Planning is also underway for the release of Stage 8b, which will offer a further 19 lots.


    The Oyster Harbour land releases follow significant uptake of the McGowan Government's $20,000 Building Bonus grant, with more than 500 applications received from the Great Southern.


    DevelopmentWA's Oyster Harbour estate is one of Albany's most sought-after residential addresses, located just 10 minutes from the city's central business district, and will ultimately provide up to 1,500 much needed residential home sites in Albany.


    When complete, Oyster Harbour will include more than 35 hectares of dedicated public space including landscaped parklands, playgrounds and boardwalks, and a foreshore reserve and conservation wetlands.


    A new primary school is planned and the amenity in the village centre should be realised within the next five years.


    In addition, DevelopmentWA is in the process of securing a contractor to start civil works at Clydesdale Park, another residential estate in Albany, which will yield approximately 30 additional home sites in the next stage.


    At nearby Middleton Beach, local contractor Nigel Palmer Earthmoving has recently been awarded a contract to provide remaining subdivision civil works and public infrastructure.


    The site will be home to six two-storey architecturally designed terrace houses called duettes. The duettes will be the first stage delivered on the project, set to provide a vibrant mix of village atmosphere and beach connectivity.

    Comments attributed to Lands Minister Tony Buti:


    "With residential land in such high demand around Albany, it is pleasing to see new lots at Oyster Harbour being brought to the market.


    "The McGowan Government has invested heavily in the growth and development of Albany, where the population continues to grow strongly.


    "This is a perfect opportunity for families to invest in their own piece of Albany, just 10 minutes from the city centre.


    "This release includes a wide range of lots that will suit all lifestyles and importantly, new public housing is a part of this development."
