An additional level of parking with more bays for staff has been approved as part of the $800 million redevelopment of a Perth shopping centre.
The Metro Inner-North Joint Development Assessment Panel approved the proposed amendments to staff car parking for the Karrinyup Shopping Centre expansion on Monday.
The application proposes an additional rooftop level of the multi-storey car park on the western side, abutting Karrinyup Road, with 189 additional bays.
An additional ramp to access the staff car park and increase of wall height are among the other adjustments proposed by applicants Rowe Group.
The panel unanimously approved proposed amendments to the $800 million expansion which included relocating the staff car parking area next to the cinema.
The panel also approved deleting conditions on the timeframe for constructing residential components as part of the expansion.
Rowe Group senior town planner Sean Fairfoul said the original approval of the proposed development in 2015 included 134 apartments in two residential buildings.
“Since the original approval was approved, we had a rethink on the way it looks and the new R-codes have come in,” he said.
“The two conditions that included a mandate on the timing really do cause us some troubles from a construction point of view.”
