Million-dollar facelift for WA tourist hotspot

Million-dollar facelift for WA tourist hotspot

The Scarborough Beach foreshore in Perth will undergo a $75.4 million facelift as part of plans to transform the popular tourist spot into a 'world-class beachfront'.

Firms: Clayton Utz (WA Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority)

Deal value: $75.4 million

Area: Environment, building and construction

Key players: Clayton Utz environment planning partner Brad Wylynko (pictured), construction partner Clive Luck, and real estate partners Mary Pringle and Simon Taskunas lead teams advising the WA Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority.

Deal significance:

Together with City of Stirling, the WA government will invest $75.4 million to revamp the Scarborough Beach foreshore over three years.

The state government recently allocated $18 million from its 2016-17 budget for the project, with a contract to commence forward works and excavation for a waterfront swimming pool expected to be awarded soon.

Announcing the project, WA Planning Minister Donna Faragher shared her vision for the beachfront.

“The Government, through the MRA and in partnership with the City of Stirling, are working together to revitalise Scarborough Beach," she said.

“We will draw on its unique identity to create a vibrant hub of activity with facilities, events and activities and enhance its reputation as a great meeting place for families and people of all ages."

An existing surf club building and the Maureen Grierson Centre will be demolished and replaced with a new Beach Hub that will house the Scarborough Surf Life Saving Club. The site will also cater for the city’s beach services and community uses. Other project works include reconfiguration of car parks and removal of man-made sand dunes.

Clayton Utz's Mr Wylynko said the firm is “excited to be partnering with the MRA to deliver another landmark project for Perth”.

“It's a great example of the State Government further consolidating Perth's appeal as a place to live, and as a leading tourism and business destination in the Asia Pacific region,” he said.
