  • State Government announces new lots to be auctioned at historic Perry Lakes
  • Site has undergone significant transformation into modern housing development
  • Design guidelines ensure homes at Perry Lakes incorporate the site’s style

The State Government has announced the first lots within Stage 2B of the Perry Lakes redevelopment in Floreat will be sold on site at auction on Saturday, December 8.

Planning Minister John Day said the release of the five new single residential cottage lots at the site was yet another major milestone that had been greatly anticipated by purchasers.

“Since land was first released for sale in late 2010, this location has undergone a significant transformation into a modern housing development while preserving its important sporting heritage.” Mr. Day said.

 

“Perry Lakes Stadium, built for the 1962 British Empire and Commonwealth Games, was a landmark sporting facility and its redevelopment is attracting strong interest from buyers seeking to be part of the established community of Floreat.”

Blocks, ranging from 250 sqm to 374 sqm are expected to be the most competitively priced lots to date and are located on a unique ring road (Stadium Drive) that mimics the original athletics track, allowing purchasers to buy their own piece of history.

The Minister said LandCorp had completed major landscaping and restoration work, including recycling timber seating from the athletics stadium as boardwalks around the edge of the

East Lake, allowing residents and the community increased access.

“In recent months, the development has been brought to life with the completion of a number of homes, including the Appealathon home.” Mr. Day said.

“Design guidelines ensure homes at Perry Lakes incorporate the modernist style which was reflected in the stadium and other civic buildings of the time and enhance this contemporary development.”
