East Perth Pedal Power
You can leave the lycra at home for this low intensity bike tour around one of the first major urban renewal projects in Perth. East Perth has become a global example of how successful urban renewal can revitalise and change the face of a once derelict area.
This tour incorporates some of the newer projects within the area and delegates will view the six-hectare centrepiece of the Riverside precinct – Waterbank. Waterbank will feature new homes, cafes and bars as well as extensive public open space including an urban beach.
Delegates will also tour the luxurious Frasers Suites and the iconic, six-star Crown Towers Perth.
All bikes will be provided for this tour.
Perth’s southern growth corridor is home to a diverse range of impressive urban development, including the three award winning projects featured on this exclusive tour.
Starting at the national award winning Cygnia Cove, located on the banks of the Canning River, delegates will gain insight into the challenges overcome by the developer from an environmental, cultural and heritage perspective to achieve one of the best residential developments in Australia.
Venturing further south, Cockburn Central is an excellent example of transit oriented development providing a mix of housing and commercial uses all within walking distance of the train station. While Port Coogee is a lesson in luxury with the impressive marina development featuring a mix of uses and housing typologies all in harmonious cohesion.
Heading 40km north of the city, delegates will drive through Brighton and Eden Beaches before alighting at the award-winning Alkimos Beach, a masterplanned community that has changed the face of the northern suburbs and is providing extensive amenities to residents.
The tour will finish with another award winning urban renewal project at Perry Lakes where LandCorp has produced a demonstration in cutting edge environmental and sustainable development while retaining the significant heritage of the former Commonwealth Games site.
North Eastern Highlights
First stop on this tour is the iconic Ellenbrook which has been a leading example of new community creation for over twenty years, securing the prestigious FIABCI (International Real Estate Federation) World Prix d’Excellence Award for 2015, being named the best master-planned community in the world. That is on top of multiple national and state UDIA Awards for Excellence in a range of categories. Delegates will also tour the latest in affordable apartment development.
This tour also features a visit to the Midland Railway Workshops, part of the redevelopment of Midland as a vibrant city. St John of God Healthcare and Curtin University have both recently secured land within this site, confirming its future potential as a medical and educational hub.
Innovative Affordable & Social Housing
Perth has undergone many changes in the last decade and one area that has benefited from innovative thinking and a desire to create more liveable, vibrant places for people to live is the affordable and social housing sector.
This tour will take in several projects that are showcasing how the sector is providing a range of housing options in different areas to suit various lifestyles and budgets. From inner city living in Northbridge, to experimental demonstration projects in White Gum Valley near Fremantle, there is plenty to learn from those on the cutting edge.
