Heathcote to be a hub of ac­tiv­ity

Melville Times - - Opinion -

PLANS to re-imag­ine and re­vi­talise Heathcote are well un­der way, with the City of Melville keen to trans­form the site into a must-visit cul­tural hub.

In Fe­bru­ary, Melville Coun­cil en­dorsed plans for the fu­ture of the Heathcote Cul­tural Precinct and a re­port at the time pre­dicted the over­all cost of manag­ing the build­ings on site was ex­pected to drop by about $60,000 per an­num if the ac­ti­va­tion strat­egy was im­ple­mented, based on an 80 per cent oc­cu­pancy rate.

The City is now seek­ing reg­is­tra­tions of in­ter­est for the more than 2000sq m space, which boasts a wide va­ri­ety of build­ings that are avail­able for lease.

Melville Mayor Rus­sell Aubrey said he hoped to see the site come to life with a broad range of users.

“We want Heathcote to be­come one of Perth’s lead­ing and most dy­namic in­ter­con­nected spa­ces for artists, well­ness stu­dios, co-work­ing and col­lab­o­ra­tive spa­ces, per­ma­nent and tem­po­rary food op­por­tu­ni­ties, and unique events of vary­ing sizes through­out the year,” he said.

“We are open to reg­is­tra­tions of in­ter­est from any in­di­vid­u­als, re­tail­ers or or­gan­i­sa­tions who align with our vi­sion.

Our ideal out­come is the cre­ation of a space in which vis­i­tors and site users can all me­an­der freely through the build­ings and spa­ces.”
