Stage one of the East Green housing development in Greenwood will open for lot sales soon, following the completion of a public park and civil works.
The newly completed parkland makes up 25 per cent of the estate, more than double the amount required by law.
A pedestrian path, active exercise spaces, a barbecue station, a playground and picnic areas will encourage interaction and activity throughout the estate, and sets to enhance the quality of life for future residents and the broader Greenwood community.
Interest and enquiries from 287 prospective buyers was recorded in the first three weeks of June, almost double the amount for May.
This comes after the State Government’s announcement of a $125 million Building Bonus, offering incentives to build new homes.
The first 27 lots will be released for sale in July, with the Department of Communities and Frasers Property Australia jointly developing the estate.
Housing Minister, Peter Tinley, said the first sales release is epextec to sell very quickly on the back of the Government’s Building Bonus.
“Projects like East Green provide much needed work for Perth tradies, and support jobs in WA’s second biggest employment sector – the housing sector,”
“They help to create diverse residential communities in exisiting urban zones, close to where people live, work and play,” Mr Tinley said.
Jessica Stojkovski, Kinglsey MLA, said the diversity of housing in East Green will provide a range of alternative housing opportunities for future residents.
“There will be options for older people wanting to downsize in their local community, young people wanting to buy a home close to where they grew up, and lower income families wanting better access to services and work,” she said.
