Retail hub interest

Tayler NealeAlbany Advertiser

A new a shopping centre in Albany could be on the horizon with a 2ha plot of land in Oyster Harbour being advertised as a potential shopping centre site.

The land, on Lower King Road at the entrance to Oyster Harbour, has planning approval to become a shopping complex with the potential for a service station and fast- food outlets.

Wellington and Reeves sales and marketing manager Darren Leslie said there had already been strong interest in the site. “We’ve had quite a lot of interest and there has been some good discussion with a number of leasing agents,” he said.

“The current estate population within Oyster Harbour is over 700 residents with potential growth to 4000 and there is a dedicated primary school site.

“With the growth of Albany and big infrastructure spend in that area, there are plenty of positives.”

Mr Leslie indicated there was potential for the installation of more services in the Oyster Harbour area.

“There is a fast food shortage out that way,” he said.

“The site is adjacent to established suburbs of Bayonet Head and Lower King and also services outer-lying rural and residential areas.

“It’s a gateway to the Kalgan tourist precinct and is within five minutes of Great Southern Grammar and only 10 minutes from the Albany CBD.

“There is scope for a wider array of services in the area.”

Expressions of interest for the site closed last Thursday.
