THE first slab has gone down at Jindee es­tate in Jin­dalee, mark­ing a mile­stone over a decade in the mak­ing.

The build is a land­mark mo­ment in the devel­op­ment’s long jour­ney, which started in 2006 with an un­prece­dented land ex­change pro­posal be­tween de­vel­oper Es­tate Devel­op­ment Com­pany, the WA Plan­ning Com­mis­sion and the City of Wan­neroo.

EDC chair Fiona Roche said the con­struc­tion of the first fam­ily home saw the begin­ning of the shared vi­sion for the com­mu­nity com­ing to life after years of plan­ning.

“We put a lot of thought into the cre­ation of Jindee and have al­ways main­tained a fo­cus on a unique life­style and sense of com­mu­nity to set it apart from more tra­di­tional sub­ur­ban de­vel­op­ments,” she said.

“We are now see­ing the be­gin­nings of what is an in­no­va­tive new ad­di­tion to the City of Wan­neroo, as the first form­based ap­proach to devel­op­ment in WA – char­ac­terised by the clear vi­sion we had from the out­set of what the com­mu­nity will look like from the build­ing types through to streetscapes.”

New Choice Homes is in charge of build­ing this first fam­ily home in the es­tate and is ex­pected to be fin­ished by sum­mer.

“It is re­fresh­ing to work with a de­vel­oper whose main ob­jec­tive isn’t to just ‘cut-up’ as many blocks of land as pos­si­ble to give the high­est pos­si­ble re­turn on the in­vest­ment,” New Choice Homes sales and mar­ket­ing man­ager Joe Vara­calli said.

“We strongly be­lieve that the es­tate will be a great place for all fam­i­lies and pro­fes­sions at dif­fer­ent stages of their lives, and that Jindee will be the place to be.”

As work com­menced on the home, the ini­tial land­scap­ing works for Jindee were also com­pleted, in­clud­ing a park which fea­tures Aus­tralia’s largest bench swing.

Ms Roche said that there had been a great re­sponse to the re­cently re­leased Stage 1B, with sites over­look­ing the new park­land.

“After more than a decade of plan­ning, it is fan­tas­tic to see our vi­sion of a truly unique coastal vil­lage be­come a re­al­i­sa­tion,” she said.

The new on­site sales of­fice is ex­pected to open in June.
