The City of Joondalup has its prospects set on constructing its commercial heart to rival the Perth CBD.
Today marked the opening of Prime House in Joondalup, which will be the workplace for up to 800 public servants – and that’s just the beginning for development in the area.
A 17-storey, $85 million apartment tower is presently under construction. A Hospital expansion is underway and a Marina at Ocean Reef is due to begin soon.
Joondalup mayor Albert Jacob has big plans for the city saying the CBD needed to expand by about 700 jobs a year to meet its goals.
“Joondalup’s activity centre, it’s CBD is actually the same size as the city of Perth’s CBD and we’re out to be that big,” he said.
“It will take a few decades for us to get there but with projects like opening Prime house today that’s a big step forward.”
Members of the community who took part in the Joondalup 2022 engagement process made it clear they wanted the City to distinguish itself through leadership, spirit
and energy – its Elected Members are committed to achieving this.
