Stockland’s family-friendly Amberton community in Eglinton is a wave of activity with construction firing up on an exciting $4 million foreshore development project that will provide residents with direct access to the beach.

Stockland celebrated the start of construction on the first stage of the project with a sod turning event on Friday, 6 October attended by The Honourable John Robert Quigley, Member for Butler and Attorney General; Mayor Tracey Roberts from the City of Wanneroo; and representatives of Stockland.

The project, which will offer Amberton residents and visitors easy access to the pristine sand and surf from Cinnabar Drive, includes a café overlooking the beach, a playground, and parking facilities.

The beach access, playground and car park are expected to be completed mid to late 2018, while the cafe launch is scheduled for 2019.

Col Dutton, General Manager for Stockland WA, said he was delighted that work was underway on the much-anticipated project.

“This foreshore development project will be a wonderful asset for residents at our fast-growing beachside Amberton community,’’ Mr Dutton said.

“It will be a convenient location where they can meet with family and friends and enjoy easy and quick access to the beach, while the café will be a fantastic spot to have a bite to eat whilst enjoying breathtaking views across Amberton beach to the ocean.”

Mr Dutton said Amberton’s location and affordable price tag made it a drawcard for all types of buyers.

“Amberton has been designed to suit many different budgets and lifestyles and it is the perfect location to raise a family as well as for singles, retirees or for those wanting a sea change,’’ he said.

The community offers buyers a very healthy and active coastal lifestyle with its kilometres of cycling and walking paths, outdoor spaces and parks. A multi-million dollar sports field provides residents with plenty of opportunities to exercise.

The first stage of the 8.8 hectare facility has opened and it includes an AFL sized oval and a park with an impressive scooter and bike track and adventure playground.

Stockland also sponsors the free Live Life Get Active program which offers Amberton locals and visitors from the surrounding area 45 minute sessions in cross-training, boxing and yoga, on a Monday to Friday during school terms.

Meanwhile, Amberton residents and their pooches also have access to free dog training sessions, which are a joint partnership with the RSPCA.

Amberton will ultimately have more than 2,500 dwellings ranging from free standing homes to townhomes and completed home packages. Home sites are currently priced from $194,000.
