Today, Curtin University formally invited development partners for Greater Curtin Stage One via the commencement of an expression of interest process.
Greater Curtin Stage One is a key enabler for the long term Greater Curtin vision. The procurement phase marks a significant milestone in Curtin’s long-term plan, which will see the emergence of a dedicated innovation precinct and a vibrant well-connected community.
Stage One will deliver a revitalised central precinct on the Bentley Campus. It represents a development value of circa $500 million and will comprise new accommodation for 2,000 students plus short stay accommodation, academic buildings, research space, curated retail, a bus transport interchange and a range of public spaces and amenity.
Development within the main street precinct will provide excellent opportunities for business to locate themselves at Curtin and leverage opportunities within our academic, research and social areas.
Greater Curtin Stage One development is being led by Tim Urquhart, General Manager, Greater Curtin. Mr Urquhart most recently worked with international developer Lend Lease where he delivered precinct-based developments including the Olympic Village in London.
Potential partners will be shortlisted and invited to submit detailed development proposals in September 2016, with preferred proponents selected in early 2017.
