De­vel­op­ment in­ter­est runs high

Canning Gazette - - NEWS -

A HIGH-RISE de­vel­op­ment is set to spring up op­po­site Cannington train sta­tion.

Ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est are be­ing sought for the large re­de­vel­op­ment site at 230 Rail­way Pa­rade, East Cannington.

Within the City of Can­ning Ac­tiv­ity Cen­tre Struc­ture Plan, the de­vel­op­ment must be a min­i­mum of six storeys and max­i­mum of nine storeys.

Ray White Com­mer­cial (WA) sales and leas­ing agent Nigel Ten­nant said the 6351sq m site was in a growth area.

“There are fu­ture growth plans for high rise mixed-use de­vel­op­ment on the sub­ject site and sur­round­ing lots,” he said. “The suc­cess­ful pur­chaser can un­der­take com­mer­cial and res­i­den­tial uses from the site.”

Ray White Com­mer­cial (WA) di­rec­tor Chris Matthews said the lo­ca­tion and ac­ces­si­bil­ity of the site would make it a draw­card for devel­op­ers.

“The site is op­po­site Cannington train sta­tion and a carpark, so it’s con­ducive to ground­floor com­mer­cial de­vel­op­ment with steady pa­tron­age daily,” he said.

“The site ben­e­fits from the re­cent $350 mil­lion re­fur­bish­ment of Carousel Shop­ping Cen­tre, the in­creased res­i­den­tial den­sity planned for the area, as well as the fu­ture re­tail/com­mer­cial hub for the south-east­ern cor­ri­dor.”

The site cur­rently houses the Perth Train­ing Cen­tre. THREE in­ter­sec­tions within 200m in Queens Park will re­ceive $400,000 in up­grades.

The in­ter­sec­tions of Wharf Street, Fur­nace Road and Mur­ray Road South with Welsh­pool Road re­ceived fund­ing un­der the State Gov­ern­ment’s 2019-20 Black Spot pro­gram.

The three in­ter­sec­tions are all in close prox­im­ity, with ve­hi­cles from both sides of Welsh­pool Road of­ten turn­ing right on to the busy ar­te­rial road.

A Main Roads spokes­woman said the in­ter­sec­tions were sig­nif­i­cantly over-rep­re­sented in right turn and rear end crashes, with 46 in the five years to the end of 2018.

Safety en­hance­ments in­clude the in­stal­la­tion of right, left and U-turn lanes, new me­dian is­lands and up­grades to street light­ing.

Can­ning Mayor Paul Ng said se­cur­ing the safety of their res­i­dents was of “para­mount im­por­tance”.
