RAAFA is set to plough more than $31 million into the next stage of development at its Bull Creek Air Force Memorial Estate.
Work will shortly commence by BGC Construction on the sixth stage of redevelopment on the site - the construction of 57 new apartments for independent retirement living, in addition to a new club house.
RAAFA CEO John Murray said the development was a continuation of RAAFA’s master plan to reinvigorate and reinvent the site.
“The development represents a new and exciting phase for RAAFA, and demonstrates our commitment to meeting the community's demand for high quality accommodation and ongoing amenities into the future,” Mr Murray said.
“It also reinforces our commitment to caring for ex-service men and women and providing for their future needs, in addition to other older West Australians in our community."
The staged redevelopment project has received unanimous support from the Metro Central Joint Development Assessment Panel (JDAP), and has been commended for design excellence.
The new retirement living options will provide long-term, sustainable and flexible living standards in a diverse mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments, which will achieve Gold Standard under the Livable Housing Australia Guidelines.
The building design will incorporate key sustainability features, including high level natural lighting, ventilation and solar power. Provision will also be made in the basement car park for electric car charging and future battery storage technology.
In addition, the new club house will incorporate a dedicated function center, restaurant, café and bar, with flexible spaces to cater for a variety of functions and uses. The design will also acknowledge RAAFA’s aviation heritage.
Construction is scheduled to commence in March 2019 and will take approximately 18 months to complete.
