Residents raise concerns
A DEVELOPER has gained approval to add three storeys to a Karrinyup apartment complex despite overwhelming objections from residents.
The seven-storey residential and commercial building on Davenport Street and Francis Avenue is part of AMP Capital’s redevelopment of Karrinyup Shopping Centre. It had approval for a four-storey development but applied in May to the Metro North-West Development Assessment Panel to increase the height to seven storeys and number of apartments from 57 to 94.
A City of Stirling report said the height was compatible with the shopping centre and proposed eight-storey residential building along Burroughs Road. It supported the application despite 86 per cent of public submissions objecting to it.
