New community with aged care announced for Champion Lakes

  • Armadale

Yolk Property Group has been selected as the preferred proponent to develop an exciting new community at Champion Lakes with more aged care facilities and job opportunities.

The group, in partnership with Southern Cross Care, will work to create a sustainable and liveable community, completely transforming the vacant 14-hectare site at Champion Lakes, Armadale.

"This exciting new mixed-use development will deliver a diverse range of highly affordable and innovative housing including aged care, and create a dynamic community hub precinct to benefit the wider region." said Minister Rita Saffioti.

The development will incorporate diverse housing options including apartments, townhouses, standard and micro-lot homes, aged living and retirement housing.

Southern Cross Care will deliver strong aged care outcomes in the new development, in line with the McGowan Government's commitment to fast-track aged care developments.

The new Champion Lakes development will also include commercial and retail opportunities and public open space - key elements that will strengthen Armadale's role as a strategic centre.

The development will also offer a range of community amenities to promote recreation and wellness for residents and neighbours alike.

Champion Lakes is a newly established locality, 22 kilometres from Perth, that is bound by Tonkin Highway, Lake Road, Ranford Road and Albany Highway.

"This represents an excellent outcome for Armadale and surrounding suburbs such as Roleystone where the ageing population needs more facilities to age in place."

MRA has been working for several years to improve amenities and create more residential, employment and business opportunities in the area.
