Australian developer Lendlease and Western Australia’s State Government land agency LandCorp have signed a development agreement for a new community that will be home to an estimated 4,650 people.
The Alkimos Central development will be based near the settlement of Mindarie, about 40km north of Perth, Western Australia.
The 145ha parcel of land will provide a homes and amenities to support the future Alkimos City Centre. As well as a primary and secondary school, 1,500 square metres of commercial space will be created along the proposed Alkimos Avenue.
Lendlease prepared the Alkimos Central masterplan on behalf of LandCorp. This allocated 100ha for recreational parkland and 11ha for sporting facilities.
Frank Marra, LandCorp’s chief executive, said: "Future residents will benefit by the close proximity of this area to retail, community, business services and railway station in the proposed Alkimos City Centre."
Lendlease expects to start work on the first 63ha precinct in 2017.
