What is the Point Grey Marina Project?
Point Grey is a 275-hectare jewel in the crown of Western Australia’s Peel Region, with approvals in place to develop a quality master-planned residential community, designed to provide an exceptional lifestyle and investment opportunity.
Flanked by the water ways of the Peel Inlet and Harvey Estuary, Point Grey will offer more than 3000 new home sites with easy access to Perth, Mandurah and the South West coastal region, delivering a diverse range of housing choices and tourism opportunities in this fast-growing area.
The master-planned estate will be complemented by a 300-berth marina – the only privately-funded marina scheduled for development along Western Australia’s south west stretch of coast – together with retail and tourist facilities, a primary school and extensive open space, collectively creating an enviable lifestyle.
What does this project mean for the Peel region and its people?
The Point Grey Marina Project will become home to an estimated 7000 residents, with its construction expected to generate 4000 local jobs and 1400 permanent jobs post completion. It will strengthen the local economy with a world-class tourism destination and will provide much-needed boating and recreation facilities for a growing community.
Who is behind the Point Grey Marina Project?
From its roots as one of Australia’s oldest listed property developers, then known as Port Bouvard, Tian An Australia has grown to become one of the country’s most successful operators with a strong track record of quality residential development in key markets across Australia.
Backed by the strength of its Hong Kong-listed shareholder, Tian An China Investments Company Tian An is committed to maintaining its focus on the development of premium quality, sustainable places for Australians to live, work and play.
Point Grey & the environment?
Tian An Australia’s plans for Point Grey seek to protect and enhance the local environment, while providing more people with access to the unique lifestyle, tourism and leisure opportunities offered by the Peel Region. The Point Grey Marina Project has undergone significant environmental impact assessment and public consultation at both a State and Commonwealth level with approval given to allow the project to commence. The project has also been thoroughly reviewed assessed by the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) on two separate occasions and on both occasions the EPA determined that it satisfied its strict environmental conditions and that any potential impacts could be successfully managed and mitigated.
When will the project commence?
Point Grey is a vitally important project for the region’s future and we remain fully committed to delivering it. The project will be built in two stages. The timing will all depend on final approval of the marina being granted, but we aim to start work at the site prior to August 2022.
What does Stage One include?
Stage One of the project will take an estimated six weeks and covers a total area of 9.92ha. This includes a marina excavation area of 4.47ha and an earthwork soil stockpile area of 5.43ha. The stockpile area is located on a cleared paddock currently used for cattle grazing. It will hold approximately 88,000m3 of soil, which will be reach a height of no more than 2.5m and be covered by hydro-mulch with seed for erosion control. Stage One clearing works does not include any part of the adjacent estuary.
What happens next?
Following the decision by the State Administrative Tribunal, Tian An will now review the response in further detail, before meeting with key stakeholders to plan our next steps as we move towards construction. We are absolutely committed to Point Grey and remain determined to meet the needs of the local community with the creation of jobs, housing and recreation facilities.
