DevelopmentWA has submitted a development application to the City of Albany to construct two-storey terrace homes in Middleton Beach’s mixed-use precinct area.
The unique “Duettes” houses, to be constructed and sold as completed homes ready to occupy, include two separate accommodation areas in two-storey terrace homes.
WA Lands minister Tony Buti said Duettes was the first purpose designed medium density mixed-use development by DevelopmentWA to be launched to market in the Great Southern region.
Development decision expected
The City of Albany is expected to make a decision on the development application next month, before a tender for the construction of the homes is released following development approval.
The houses are part of DevelopmentWA’s Middleton Beach activity centre area adjoining a premium four-star hotel.
The 3,700sqm site is to be owned by a consortium of Pacifica Developments and Ausglobal Group, with the Seashells Group as the hotel operator.
Mr Buti said the WA Government had invested heavily in Albany’s growth and development.
“Middleton Beach will be the first development in Western Australia to feature Duettes, a new mixed-use housing product from DevelopmentWA,” he said.
“Duettes are a unique product, which will deliver genuinely flexible and modern housing choice for people living and working in regional WA.”
Housing options and more jobs
Member for Albany Rebecca Stephens said this kind of development in Albany was exciting.
“It will not only create more housing options and working spaces but also a number of new, local jobs,” she said.
“It’s wonderful to see the progress being made on the Middleton Beach Activity Centre and the opportunities it has already opened up for local contractors.
“Occupying a prime, oceanfront location in Albany will benefit Albany’s tourism and hospitality sectors, encourage more people to visit Albany and create many new local jobs.”
