The City of Gosnells seeks Expressions of Interest for the development of a prime site in the heart of the Gosnells Town Centre (GTC).
The 3,391sqm development site, bounded by Albany Highway, Main Street and Lissiman Street, is zoned ‘Urban’ under the Metropolitan Region Scheme and ‘District Centre’ under Town Planning Scheme 6.
The site is owned by the City of Gosnells and currently contains several older buildings, which will be demolished in early 2021 to clear the site for future development.
Mayor David Goode said the site’s proximity to the Gosnells train station provides a genuine opportunity for a vibrant, compact and liveable Transit Oriented Development (TOD).
“This land is just across the road from the Gosnells train station and surrounded by predominantly commercial, office and retail properties,” Mayor Goode said.
“TOD is a core strategic focus in urban planning and the need for close integration between land use and public transport is recognised throughout the world.
“Building activity centres on key transport routes enables cities to shift away from a central business district dominant structure for employment.
“The Gosnells Town Centre is ideally suited to deliver TOD built form.”
Substantial revitalisation of the Gosnells Town Centre has occurred since 1998, including the relocation of the Gosnells train station, construction of the Agonis Centre, creation of Main Street, construction of the Pioneer Park amphitheatre and tree-top walk, plus streetscape upgrades and installation of public art.
“Over the next three years, the City will deliver a number of significant projects in the town centre, including a $1 million Town Square upgrade, incorporating a water misting feature, and a $200,000 upgrade and refurbishment of existing lighting,” he said.
“In the medium term, there are also plans to redevelop Gosnells Oval, construct a residential subdivision on Hicks Street and redevelop the Gosnells Bowling Club – each of which is within easy walking distance of the town centre.
“This EOI process provides an excellent opportunity for the right developer to create a significant development on this prime site, and we anticipate some innovative proposals will be submitted.”
Expressions of Interest in the Gosnells Town Centre Redevelopment close at 2pm (AWST) on Monday 22 February 2021. All enquiries should be made via the City’s eProcurement system at https://360providers.apetsoftware.com.au/request/open/gosnells at least three working days ahead of the close of the EOI.
