Perron reveals 20 year vision to transform Cockburn
Perron Group, the owner of Cockburn Gateway, has revealed their 20-year vision to transform Cockburn, seamlessly blending residential, commercial, retail and public open spaces to create a bustling and vibrant townsite.
The proposed $1 billion redevelopment – which will eventually be known as Cockburn Quarter - will include additional shops, dining options and a cinema complex. The project will also blend residential, commercial, retail, childcare, aged care, medical and health services and public open space into one vibrant location.
Links between the shopping centre and the local transport hub will be enhanced with a pedestrian bridge across Beeliar Drive connecting the redeveloped shopping centre to the Cockburn Central train station and bus interchange. This is currently being planned and will form part of a separate development application.
A key element of this process has been community consultation over the last 2 years, which has helped form a clear project vision based on insight from the local community. This significant private investment from Perron Group will create more than 7,400 jobs over the 20-year lifespan of the project and generate an estimated $2.8 billion worth of economic activity. As well as construction jobs, expanding the retail and hospitality offer of the shopping centre will also create ongoing, local employment opportunities for our community.
The development application is split into key stages across the 20 years. Stage one includes additional retail, cinemas, dining, entertainment and child care and is anticipated to commence within two years of development approval.
