Karrinyup West viewing tower approved to help sell proposed apartments

The developer behind a proposed $300 million apartment complex at Karrinyup Shopping Centre has received approval to put up a 10-storey high viewing platform to help with its sales campaign.

Stirling council approved the temporary steel open structure for the carpark area next to Burroughs Road for up to 12 months from the date of approval.

The application had been lodged in January, stating it would be used as a marketing tool for AMP Capital’s controversial three-tower development of up to nine, 15 and 24 storeys, which the Metro Inner-North Joint Development Assessment Panel approved in September.

However, since then Blackburne Property Group has teamed up with AMP Capital to design a new concept for the Karrinyup West development, which is currently out for public comment.


The city had recommended the initial $150m proposal with 270 apartments and about 570sqm of commercial floorspace be refused, with concerns about excessive height, bulk and scale, parking, and incompatibility with the local context.

This prompted resident Simon Wheeler to question at the council meeting how city officers could recommend the viewing tower for approval, if it was proposed to support an “incompatible development”.

During public consultation for the tower application, the city also received 29 submissions including 26 objections as well as a 219-signature petition also opposed.

Concerns included height and scale, excessive overlooking, the tower being “not aesthetically pleasing”, increased traffic and noise, and anti-social behaviour.
