DevelopmentWA has reported that breakwater construction at the landmark Ocean Reef Marina development is nearing completion.

The two new breakwaters have been built out to their full length, with the northern breakwater now at its final height.

In a statement, DevelopmentWA said that with the breakwaters now protecting the marina, the project was able to move into its next phase.

“This includes dredging to create adequate water depths for vessel navigation and storage, and land-side clearing to provide fill for land reclamation and enable the commencement of future earth works,” the Agency said.

“The contractors for the breakwater construction, local businesses, WA Limestone and Italia Stone Group, have been selected to undertake the works which are scheduled to commence in early August and are expected to be completed early to mid-2023,” it said.

DevelopmentWA said the Ocean Reef Marina would be an iconic recreational, boating, residential and tourism precinct with Perth’s first coastal pool and a family beach within the protection of the marina.

“When complete, it will have capacity for 550 boat pens, 200 boat stackers, boat ramps and trailer parking,” the Department said.

“More than 1,000 residential dwellings are also planned for the marina precinct across a range of housing types, including home-sites, apartments and mixed-use developments.”

It said this would be accompanied by up to 12,000 square metres of retail and commercial floor space, as well as more than five hectares of community spaces.

The Agency said the project was being delivered in collaboration with the City of Joondalup.
