The Easts Group are pleased to announce that they have entered into an agreement with the Mirvac Group to redevelop the Waverley Bowling Club. Mirvac plans to restore the site to its former glory as a thriving lifestyle precinct and social hub for Members and the community that reflects local architectural styles and the distinctive urban context of the iconic coastal location, while showcasing leading environmentally sustainable design.
The development will include a new and modern bowling club featuring one championship bowling green and one synthetic green, a cafe and landscaping upgrades, as well as 55 premium apartments for people aged 55 and over or those with a disability. The project has been managed by Hamptons Property Services who have guided the Easts Group throughout the process, and designed by Altis Architects. JLL acted for the Easts Group in marketing the development through a professionally conducted Expression of Interests campaign.
The Easts Group will retain ownership of the bowling club, greens and underground parking for Members.
Easts Group CEO Joe Kelly said this is wonderful news for our Members, and that Mirvac was the ideal partner to deliver this project as a new social hub and heart of the community.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Mirvac to deliver a vibrant new facility for Waverley. Mirvac’s reputation for excellence and proven success at delivering high calibre projects in the Eastern Suburbs means that they are perfectly positioned to reimagine this iconic location for the future,” said Mr Kelly.
“Waverley Bowling Club has a long and rich history, and it’s exciting to know that our Members and local community will have a contemporary club to call home when it opens in mid-2023, coinciding with the Club’s 130th anniversary.”
Mirvac Head of Residential, Stuart Penklis, said that this is an exciting opportunity to create an exceptional new community and residential precinct for a specific demographic that is much needed in the locality.
“Our vision is to celebrate the site’s unique heritage while setting new benchmarks for innovation, sustainability and the high-quality built form Mirvac is known for. We look forward to working with the Easts Group to unlock the site’s special potential and deliver a legacy project for Members and the community.”
The appointment of Mirvac to redevelop Waverley Bowling Club is an important step in what has been a lengthy development process, with construction expected to begin by mid-2021.
