An Embleton church site with development potential has remained in religious hands.

LJ Hooker Commercial Perth confirmed the sale of the 4,025 square metre site, which was the home of the Jehovah’s Witnesses Kingdom Hall, to a Hindu faith spiritual group.

The freehold site changed hands for $2,175,000, plus GST.

The Shree Swaminarayan Sidhant Sajivan Mandal Perth INC – part of the Maningar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan – is a local not-for-profit incorporated religious association and charity.

The association has a legacy in Perth that dates back two decades, when families from East African including Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda migrated to the city and began holding religious services in private dwellings.

LJ Hooker Commercial Perth agent Vincent Siciliano said the group had undergone growth in membership.

The Kingdom Hall on site included modern improvements across 700 square metre of the property.

“The group will re-launch the former Kingdom Hall as the Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Temple, Embleton,” said Siciliano.

The site offered potential for 11 lots with the local planning scheme allowing for a minimum lot size of 300 square metre with dual street frontage to Irwin Road and Gaull Place.

Following the sale of the church site, LJ Hooker Commercial Perth has now been appointed to sell a second Jehovah’s Witnesses Hall at 44-46 Chelsea Court, Dianella.
