Perth architecture and property development group Baltinas’ new mixed-use development on Beaufort Street in Mount Lawley has been approved.

The project was approved by The City of Vincent.

It includes 26 luxury apartments with a mix of one to three bedroom offerings, offices, and ground floor retail and café spaces.

Baltinas’ founder Barry Baltinas said the CHALLIS development on the Highgate Drycleaners site had been named in honour of the couple who’d owned the site since the 1950’s until his company purchased it two years ago.

Mr Baltinas said the new landmark building would feature quality architecture drawing inspiration from Mount Lawley’s cornerstone art deco buildings.

He says that the tree planting system CHALLIS incorporates is unlike any other seen in Perth, with trees growing throughout the upper levels of the building.

“The calibre of this development will help enrich the local community by activating residential life and the town strip with new bustling retail, cafe and office space, and the inclusion of public art of significant importance,” said Mr Baltinas.

The development is targeted at the owner-occupier demographic, in particular the downsizer. 

“This downsizer market is potentially one that will spend most of their daytime hours out and about in the town centre supporting the local economy, so it’s a very exciting project for Mount Lawley and for us,” he said.

Construction is due to start in January 2020,

The project is forecast to be completed by July 2021
