Western Australia’s southwest may soon welcome a new medium-density mixed-use development. The new housing product planned for Albany’s mixed-use precinct at Middleton Beach is one step closer, with the submission of a development application to the City of Albany.

Called Duettes, the project is being created by government agency DevelopmentWA, and is the first purpose designed medium density mixed-use development by the agency in the Great Southern region.

“Duettes are a unique product, which will deliver genuinely flexible and modern housing choice for people living and working in regional WA.”

Tony Buti, Lands Minister

A decision on the development application is expected next month. A tender for the construction of the homes will be released following development approval.

Nearby, a four-star hotel will also be constructed, the 3,700 square metre site was sold to a consortium between Pacifica Developments and Ausglobal Group, with the Seashells Group as the hotel operator.

The hotel will be five to seven storeys tall, with 80 to 100 rooms.

The local member, Rebecca Stephens, MLA, said, “Seeing development like this in Albany is extremely exciting. It will not only create more housing options and working spaces but also a number of new, local jobs.”

“It’s wonderful to see the progress being made on the Middleton Beach Activity Centre and the opportunities it has already opened up for local contractors.”
