Kangaroo Bay set to become a world-class waterfront destination

Tasmania’s largest waterfront redevelopment project, Kangaroo Bay in Bellerive, is now open for development proposals, as Clarence City Council seeks to realise its vision for a vibrant waterside hub in the heart of the city.

The invitation calls on private developers to help unlock Kangaroo Bay’s potential, with 2.2 hectares of private freehold land available within a thriving business and community precinct.

Clarence Mayor Doug Chipman said the invitation to developers was the latest important stage in a joint initiative with the Tasmanian Government, supported by the Federal Government, to stimulate investment and jobs.

“The City of Clarence is the fastest-growing city in Tasmania, and the redevelopment provides an exciting opportunity for developers who can contribute to our shared vision of creating an inclusive place for both residents and visitors,” Mayor Chipman said.

“There is potential here for accommodation, tourism, apartments, retail, entertainment, hospitality and water transport.

“The precinct has been rezoned for mixed use development and aims to achieve a balance between commercial, residential and recreational activities.”

Mayor Chipman said Council’s vision for the precinct was embodied in the Kangaroo Bay Urban Design Plan, which was adopted by Council following extensive community consultation.

“The Plan includes landscaping for Kangaroo Bay Drive, new traffic arrangements, a new urban plaza near the old ferry terminal, and a foreshore promenade linking Kangaroo Bay to the Bellerive Boardwalk,” Mayor Chipman said.

“The project is an excellent example of three tiers of government working together to achieve great outcomes for the community, with funding assistance provided by the Australian Government, and Council working in partnership with the Tasmanian Government to implement the plan.”

Kangaroo Bay provides one of the most attractive harbour-side vistas in Tasmania – overlooking the Derwent River to the city of Hobart and beyond to Mount Wellington – all within walking distance of the nearby Bellerive Quay business precinct, the world-class facilities of Bellerive Oval and the Rosny CBD.

The closing date for submission of development proposals is 17 June 2015. More information is available from Knight Frank Tasmania by calling +61 (0) 3 6220 6911.
