A new apartment development in the heart of Beeliar is set to deliver more aff ordable housing options for Western Australians on low to moderate incomes.
The two-storey complex, which is a joint-venture project between the Department of Communities and Pindan Homes, will feature 14 one and two-bedroom apartments.
Designed with seniors and people with mobility or access needs in mind, the ground-level homes will incorporate Silver Level Livable Home Standards – guidelines that champion user-friendly design features.
Construction is well underway at the 31 Kowara Dale site, which is close to Beeliar Shopping Centre, Beeliar Oval, Beeliar Primary School and public transport.
Residents will have easy access to employment, education and recreation via direct links to Fremantle and Cockburn Central train stations.
Scheduled for completion in June 2020, the project is part of the State Government’s Affordable Housing Action Plan 2017-18 to 2019-2020, which committed to building 7700 homes for people on low to moderate incomes.
Housing Minister Peter Tinley said the Beeliar development would help provide a better mix of dwellings in a suburb where choice was limited.
It will increase housing diversity in a suburb dominated by traditional single detached homes and address the shortage of affordable housing in the City of Cockburn. The project, located opposite recreational and nature reserves, will embody the important concepts of people, place and home through the work of local artists commissioned to create art promoting the connection to land, people and environment.Housing Minister, Peter Tinley
