Construction commenced in 2020 for Stage 1 at Wearne Cottesloe, transforming the heritage site into a landmark care and residential development for Perth’s senior community.
The Wearne Aged Care Redevelopment, currently in the construction phase, is in a prime coastal location in Cottesloe. The high-end project will consist of 76 independent living units and 129 residential aged care rooms, as well as associated amenities, cafe and allied health services. The staged delivery of the project caters for staged decant and demolition of a portion of the existing facility on the site.
Taylor Burrell Barnett was appointed the statutory planner and community engagement specialists responsible for implementing a Structure Plan; Master Plan; Development Application and community participation process for the development of the historic Wearne site.
The TBB-led community and stakeholder engagement processes resulted in the establishment of key values, identified opportunities to be considered during the redevelopment, as well as established draft design principles to guide the design scenarios and ultimately the preferred design scenario for the redevelopment. Our team also led Statutory and Strategic Planning processes, representing the Client during key advocacy negotiations with the Towns of Cottesloe, Claremont and Mosman Park and the Shire of Peppermint Grove.
