Iconic Scarborough – Media Release 27/06/2018
3 Oceans Property Group welcomes the MRA Board’s decision to approve the revised development application for the Iconic Scarborough project.
3 Oceans originally acquired the former Contacio site on the strategically located corner of Scarborough Beach Road and West Coast Highway in 2014 and have been working on this proposal for over four years.
Whilst we were disappointed that the original proposal was refused in late 2017, we have worked hard to respond to the issues raised by the MRA through a collaborative, productive and rigorous mediation process.
The new design is reduced in scale, gives a higher level of consideration to its coastal location and has achieved ‘design excellence’ status from the Design Mediation Group.
Iconic Scarborough will be a strategically important asset for WA. It will promote tourism, provide a new place for local people to enjoy, improve the accommodation offering, and create exciting new retail and food opportunities.
Importantly it will create 2,200 jobs during construction and over 700 permanent jobs in Scarborough.
3 Oceans would like to thank Western Australians and the Scarborough community for their support and encouragement of the project.
3 Oceans is now committed to making its Iconic Scarborough vision a reality, with early works to commence immediately and construction to begin in January 2019.
