LandCorp and Lend Lease have announced the launch of redevelopment project The Playground, a 4.16 hectare site that will see buyers chosen through an electronic random selection process.

The project, called The Playground after its previous use as former North Lake Primary School in Coolbellup, has already seen hundreds of expressions of interest and offers 54 lots ranging from 275 square metres to 448 square metres.

The first release is expected for April, with the electronic process to sort through interested buyers.

The Primary, the redevelopment of former Coolbellup Primary School site by the same developers, saw strong demand that is expected at The Playground as a result, said LandCorp general manager metropolitan Luke Willcock.

There was a sell out of land in The Primary during 2013.

“We expect significant demand for the land at The Playground following sales at The Primary. An electronic random selection process is the fairest method to ensure all interested purchasers have the same chance of buying in this popular area,” he said.

Lend Lease general manager of communities in Western Australia, Anthony Rowbottam, said that the design will blend into the Collebellup community.

“The name of the development is inspired by the children's playground that was central to the former North Lake Primary School. The Playground will deliver amazing play and exercise spaces, facilities and parks, delivered through the evolution of the site," said Rowbottam.

The outdoor focus of the site is set to be extended in conjunction with community feedback. Current features suggested include a fitness trail with exercise equipment through the public open sapce, walkways and play areas.

“We are delivering an innovative product that will offer a range of high quality homes to meet many different lifestyles and budgets,” Willcock said.

“The Playground will showcase innovation in planning and design by developing new homes and amenities in harmony with an established suburb, just as we successfully did at The Primary.”
