Pitch for Iluka shops

Wanneroo Times - - News -

PLANS for a two-storey spe­cialty cen­tre in Iluka have been an­nounced.

Dubbed Iluka Plaza, the AGEM Prop­erty Group de­vel­op­ment will have a mix of na­tional and lo­cal ten­an­cies on the cor­ner of Burns Beach Road and O’Mara Boule­vard.

This fol­lows Fri­day’s ap­proval of a Bright­wa­ter re­tire­ment vil­lage on the south­ern part of the site.

“We have iden­ti­fied another op­por­tu­nity in the mar­ket to sat­isfy the need for lo­cal ameni­ties – some­thing the res­i­dents have been wait­ing in an­tic­i­pa­tion for,” AGEM Prop­erty Group man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Adrian Fiore said.

“Early signs of strong ten­ant in­ter­est con­firms our con­cept and strat­egy.”

He said as the coastal com­mu­ni­ties of Iluka and Burns Beach con­tin­ued to grow, a lo­cal re­tail and food precinct had been iden­ti­fied as a re­quire­ment “to as­sist with the daily needs of res­i­dents whose cur­rent al­ter­na­tive is com­mut­ing to neigh­bour­hood cen­tres in sur­round­ing sub­urbs”.

De­signed by DMG Ar­chi­tec­ture, the “com­mu­nity-feel” de­vel­op­ment is also ex­pected to gen­er­ate lo­cal em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties.
