Rosewood given green light for $74M aged care redevelopment in West Perth

Published on

The aged care provider’s development application for a new 152-bed aged care home over five storeys at its existing 52-bed Cleaver Street site has been approved after Rosewood changed the façade and decreased the height of the building.

The provider had lodged an initial application last December, but in February, the Metro West Joint Development Assessment Panel (JDAP) deferred its decision over the height, bulk, overshadowing and amenity of the planned building.

Following a re-design by the architects, Rosewood reduced the height of the building by seven metres, withdrew proposed ancillary services including a pharmacy and medical consulting rooms, and moved parking to the basement carpark – plans the JDAP have labelled a “genuine improvement”.
