Area K involves a joint venture between the Kariyarra and Mugarinya Traditional Owners to develop an 11.9 hectare land parcel located in South Hedland. The development will comprise 121 single residential lots and four grouped dwelling sites.
Whilst the majority of the lots will be sold to fund the project, the client will retain a number of lots to be developed with residential housing. These assets will be incorporated within a property trust providing a sustained income stream and future benefit for the Traditional Owners.
As development manager, NS Projects’ role is to work with the Traditional Owners to deliver their vision. This includes the delivery of subdivision planning approvals, detailed design, subdivision works and negotiating sales contracts and participation.
A key factor in the project’s success has been the strict project governance, decision making framework and reporting systems implemented by NS Projects. This has provided confidence to Pilbara Cities and the purchaser to deal with the project owners.
With an initial release of seed funding, NS Projects undertook planning and engineering design enabling us to scope and secure a pre-sale of approximately 70% of the site.
