Lands Minister announces shortlist for Knutsford Project

A FORMER industrial site near Fremantle city centre is set to be transformed, with the WA Government announcing that it has shortlisted three development partners.

Lands Minister Brendon Grylls announced the shortlist of three preferred development partners for the Knutsford urban renewal project. He said that the shortlisted development partners "were selected from a very competitive field of some of the nation's foremost designers, in partnership with some of Australia's premier developers."

The shortlist consists of:

  • Knutsford Consortium (Georgiou Group / Fini Group / Mainpart Holdings);
  • Match Group; and
  • Australand.

Mr Grylls said that the Knutsford project would feature a mix of densities, housing types and styles and that it will be an integral part of the Fremantle community. The project will "showcase innovation and best practise in the land development industry," he said.

A decision on the preferred development partner is expected to be announced in July, with development of the first stage to commenced later in the year.
