Frasers Property Australia has sold the site for the planned Baldivis Parks Neighbourhood Retail and Childcare Centre to Oreana Property. Oreana anticipates delivering the new neighbourhood retail and childcare centre in 2024.
Baldivis Parks is a master-planned community 11 kilometres from Rockingham in Perth’s southeast and 40 kilometres from Perth CBD. The proposed shopping centre and childcare site is part of Frasers Property’s Baldivis Parks master-planned community which has been designed as a family-friendly environment with a series of green open spaces and natural bushlands with easy access to key transport routes and facilities.
Upon completion, the 5,500m2 site at the entrance to the Baldivis Parks community is proposed to incorporate a supermarket, specialty shops, a much-needed childcare centre and associated car parking. It’s in the heart of a rapidly expanding catchment, with the population of Baldivis North recorded in 2022 as 12,396 and forecast to grow to 31,352, or 152.93%, by 2046.
Tod O’Dwyer, General Manager Development – Western Australia, Frasers Property Australia says with a proven track record in delivering quality neighbourhood centres, Oreana Property is the ideal partner to bring the Baldivis Parks Neighbourhood Retail and Childcare Centre to life.
“The Centre will be an important focal point for the growing community, and we will work together with Oreana Property during the planning and design phases to ensure that the project is consistent with the character and design of Baldivis Parks,” says O’Dwyer.
The thriving Baldivis Parks community is nestled between Baldivis Road and Kwinana Freeway and is already home to approximately 1,300 residents. In addition to its easy access to major arterial roads and transport, its eight parks will encompass almost seven hectares of public open space upon completion, and with more than ten schools and education facilities in the immediate vicinity, Baldivis Parks is particularly appealing to families.
“The addition of the new neighbourhood retail and childcare centre will bring greater convenience and complement the growing community very well,” said O’Dwyer.
Baldivis Parks Neighbourhood Retail and Childcare Centre will be the second West Australian project for Oreana Property following planning approval for its Butler Village retail precinct in Perth’s northern corridor in June 2022.
Tony Sass, Managing Director at Oreana Property, said the company is pleased to be developing such a vital neighbourhood retail and childcare centre as part of its expansion into Western Australia.
“Our first priority is to create a design for the site that responds to the Baldivis Parks community’s lifestyle aspirations and the natural environment,” said Sass.
“Based on our current timetable, we expect to lodge a development application by early 2023 once the design and planning is completed with the centre operational and trading by late 2024.
“We look forward to continuing our close working relationship with Frasers Property as well as with local builders, retailers and service providers to deliver a project which meets and exceeds community expectations,” said Sass.
Conveniently serviced by bus and train public transport, Baldivis Parks is well-connected within, with cycleways and walking paths linking all parts of the community with nearby sports clubs and local shops. With its 6.87 hectares of open space, no home at Baldivis Parks will be more than 250m from a local park where residents can enjoy the bushland environment.
