Hamp­tons duo view sites

Southern Telegraph - - Telegraph News - Gareth McKnight

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Hamp­tons City Beach vis­ited Rock­ing­ham last week to view sites for po­ten­tial in­vest­ment.

The Tele­graph re­ported last week the own­ers of the suc­cess­ful Perth res­tau­rant and bar were in­ter­ested in open­ing a sec­ond venue in Rock­ing­ham.

Owner Mar­cel Slobe said he would like to repli­cate the res­tau­rant he had at City Beach in Rock­ing­ham and men­tioned the po­ten­tial Port Rock­ing­ham Ma­rina site as of in­ter­est. Ma­rina pro­po­nent Paul Ogilvie plans to build a $35 mil­lion, 500 boat-pen fa­cil­ity at Wan­liss Street that would have about 4500sqm of re­tail space.

Mr Slobe and busi­ness part­ner Craig Shearer were in Rock­ing­ham to look at sites along the fore­shore last Wed­nes­day and both said they were im­pressed with what the city had to of­fer.

Mr Slobe re­it­er­ated his ex­cite­ment over a po­ten­tial venue that took in the ad­van­tage of Rock­ing­ham’s north­fac­ing beach. The pair met with Rock­ing­ham Kwinana Cham­ber of Com­merce chief ex­ec­u­tive Tony Solin, who said any fu­ture in­vest­ment would be wel­comed by the busi­ness com­mu­nity.
