The West Australian government has chosen Perth-based Finbar Group Ltd to develop a 367-apartment complex at Port Headland.
The $300 million complex will be built on the 3.15ha site overlooking Spoilbank Marina that formerly housed the Port Headland Regional Hospital. The site is near to Mirvac's planned $125 million, 178-room hotel and 116 residential units announced last year.
The Spoilbank development will include commercial office space and ground floor retail outlets. Finbar expects to begin construction early next year, according to managing director Darren Pateman.
"The Spoilbank Marina project itself will be a milestone for the Port Headland area and will provide real relief to local residents and businesses that are crying out for alternative recreation and accommodation options," said Mr Pateman. "We be;ieve that Spoilbank Marina will become the prime Port Headland location."
Finbar has recently completed the 114-apartment Pelago West project in Karratha and started work on a further 184 apartments in Pelago East in the Pilbara town.
