QUBE joins JV partners to mark commencement of construction at Yarrimbah Heights and critical second access route
QUBE Property will mark the commencement of construction at its Yarrimbah Heights development in Bullsbrook on Monday November 20th as well as the first works on a critical second access route in and out of the estate and nearby Shady Hills Estate.
QUBE managing director, Mark Hector, said presales for Yarrimbah Heights, which were launched in September, have been ‘particularly strong’, with more than 300 registrations of interest received to date.
Construction of the 173-lot estate, which is spread over 491 hectares and boasts panoramic views back to the city, across to Walyunga National Park, west to the coast and north to the hills, commences on November 20 with an anticipated completion date for the first stage of July 2024.
QUBE released an initial 18 lots for sale and said that the demand had been very significant for the two plus hectare house and land offerings with buyers attracted by the estate’s semi-rural but accessible location and large lifestyle sized lots.
“The first influx of buyers has been attracted to Yarrimbah because of the lifestyle it offers them with room for the kids to play and a country style lifestyle within close proximity to the city.
“They’ve also cited the option to build a granny flat and to build larger family homes because of the larger building envelope size,” Mr Hector said.
Early purchasers Catherine Smith and partner Adam Harris, who have purchased a 2.37 hectare lot, said they had been looking for a larger block to give their two young children room to play and explore for some time.
“We’d been looking at blocks in Ellenbrook but these blocks were definitely better value for money and we’re moving from a house in Brabham so it’s definitely a nice change to a rural setting,” Ms Smith said.
“It is a big lot but still close enough to a range of amenities and we’re not hugely far out so we can still visit the city when we need to.
“This will definitely be our forever home and when we get too old to look after it we plan on being able to hand it down to our boys,” Ms Smith said.
The commencement of construction of the second access route, which also kicks off on November 20, will provide an important connection for current and future residents to Clarkson Road to the east and critical access in and out of the area in case of a bushfire emergency.
“The second access route in and out of the estate will give residents further peace of mind that there is sufficient access in and out of the estate in the event of a fire emergency and it will also provide that access to residents of the neighbouring Shady Hills Estate.
“The project has been very well supported at both a State and local government level and by the local community itself,” he said.
The second access road is jointly funded by the City of Swan and the WA State Government with the developer paying a pro-rata contribution towards the cost of the road as lots are developed.
Mr Hector said he expected construction to remain on schedule with contractors locked in and supply and labour issues continuing to ease.
The QUBE syndicate, backed by the BNI Group has entered into a 50% joint venture with existing landowners, the Park Family, who have farmed the Bullsbrook land for the past six decades and McRae Investments Pty Ltd (The Clough Family Company).
The sod turning ceremony will take place on site on Monday November 20 at 9am.
