De­vel­oper’s vi­sion

Wanneroo Weekender - - Opinion -

DE­VEL­OP­ERS of a fu­ture 50unit apart­ment block in Min­darie have re­leased artist im­pres­sions to en­tice lo­cal buy­ers.

Over­look­ing Clay­tons Beach on Alexan­dria View, the $15 mil­lion M/30 de­vel­op­ment by Match will have a range of one- to three-bed­room apart­ments spread over five storeys.

The de­vel­op­ment had caused con­cerns among nearby res­i­dents about ve­hi­cle ac­cess and rub­bish col­lec­tion at sev­eral North Met­ro­pol­i­tan De­vel­op­ment As­sess­ment Panel meet­ings ear­lier this year and in 2016.

M/Group man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Lloyd Clark said the site al­lowed the ar­chi­tects to de­sign an apart­ment build­ing for a spe­cific mar­ket group.

“We saw this project as an op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate an en­vi­ron­ment spe­cific to the peo­ple who are al­ready liv­ing in the area,” he said.

“We recog­nised that just be­cause a per­son might choose to down­size, it doesn’t mean they have to down­grade or leave the area.

“In most apart­ment de­vel­op­ments, the de­sign of­ten re­mains some­what generic for broad ap­peal.

“Due to the sheer num­ber of Min­darie res­i­dents liv­ing in large homes with grown fam­i­lies, we have been able to fo­cus purely on cre­at­ing an en­vi­ron­ment that blurs the line be­tween apart­ment liv­ing and large in­de­pen­dent hous­ing.”

Min­darie was es­tab­lished in 1988 on the back of an ur­ban ex­pan­sion and fea­tures large fam­ily homes.

De­vel­op­ers ex­pect to fin­ish build­ing the apart­ment block in late 2018.
