National building construction, engineering and property development company Georgiou Group has been chosen as the preferred tenderer for Liv Apartments, Defence Housing Australia’s (DHA) mixed-use residential development in Fremantle. The contract is valued at approximately $61 million. Construction will commence next week.
Situated in Fremantle’s up and coming east end precinct, the Liv Apartments’ project will transform a run-down former car yard site into an attractive, modern, mixed-use development, adding diversity and character to the local area.
The development will feature 166 apartments and approximately 1,300 square metres of commercial space as well as landscaped courtyards and public open spaces. Around one third of the apartments will provide housing for Australian Defence Force families stationed in WA, with the balance being offered for sale to private owners and investors.
‘The announcement of Georgiou as our construction partner for Liv Apartments is a significant milestone in our efforts to bring this part of Fremantle to life,’ DHA Managing Director, Jan Mason, said.
‘One of the reasons we chose Georgiou was their reputation for delivering high quality mixed-use developments, which complements our own track record as an award-winning residential property developer. We look forward to working with Georgiou in delivering on our mission to provide innovative housing solutions to our customers.’
Georgiou Group Chief Executive Officer, John Georgiou, said the company was pleased to be appointed preferred tenderer after successfully delivering the forward works package on the development earlier this year.
‘A key focus of our growth strategy in Australia, and Western Australia in particular, is to build our reputation as a quality builder while strengthening our relationships with key clients such as Defence Housing Australia,’ Mr Georgiou said. ‘We look forward to delivering this iconic project in Fremantle and adding to our portfolio of quality, mixed-use developments.’
