An oceanfront site at Burns Beach is being offered to the market with a flexible pitch to developers and restaurant and café operators.
During the four-week campaign run by Colliers International, the 500sqm site at 59 Beachside Drive will be offered for sale, and with the vendor willing to facilitate the development once a lease has been signed, it will also be offered as a design and construct project to operators who want to lease a purpose-built café or restaurant venue.
Development approval for a café, with an approximate area of 159sqm, has been secured for the Beachside Drive site.
Colliers International’s Tim Scott and Tory Packer said the master-planned community at Burns Beach was growing rapidly and there would be good demand to buy and develop the site or to operate a café that would service the community and visitors.
“The café will open onto Beachside Park and will help to make the foreshore a vibrant destination,” Mr Scott said.
“Because food and beverage outlets have been one of the more resilient sectors in WA’s retail market, there is also strong competition to secure leased retail investments.”
The Beachside Drive site has an urban development zoning from the City of Joondalup.
Ms Packer said Beachside Park was a popular year-round meeting place and a café or restaurant would complement the foreshore.
“Foreshore cafes are now an essential part of beachside communities and with the residential market at Burns Beach set to grow over coming years, we expect a good level of support for a local café,” Ms Packer said.
