Desti­na­tion Can­ning­ton

Canning Gazette - - NEWS - Carmelle Wilkin­son

A FOUR-STOREY de­vel­op­ment on Wharf Street in Can­ning­ton will in­clude 10 hol­i­day ac­com­mo­da­tion units.

Can­ning Coun­cil ap­proved the pro­posal as part of plans to di­ver­sify liv­ing op­tions in the City and at­tract tourists who want to be close to Perth.

The mixed-use con­struc­tion will in­clude two com­mer­cial units, 10 hol­i­day ac­com­mo­da­tion units and 20 dwellings.

Res­i­den­tial op­tions in­clude six one-bed­room dwellings, 12 two-bed­room dwellings and two three­bed­room dwellings. Can­ning Mayor Paul Ng said the City’s planned frame­work en­cour­ages a di­ver­sity of de­vel­op­ment and liv­ing op­tion in the Can­ning City Cen­tre.

“The $76 mil­lion Can­ning City Cen­tre Re­gen­er­a­tion Pro­gram will cre­ate greater amenity for the Can­ning com­mu­nity by de­liv­er­ing new parks and ur­ban streams to sup­port the an­tic­i­pated in­crease in higher den­sity liv­ing in the fu­ture,” he said.

“De­vel­op­ment of this kind is wel­comed by Can­ning as it will cre­ate a greater choice of liv­ing op­tions and in­creased ac­tiv­ity in the City Cen­tre.”

Lo­cated on a 2000sq m site at 129 Wharf Street, the com­plex will have 41 car bays and com­mu­nal space on the ground floor, in­clud­ing a gym.

The site is 850m to the Can­ning­ton train sta­tion and less than 300m to West­field Carousel.
