Albany Waterfront Precinct

The Albany Waterfront is a State Government project managed by LandCorp.

Albany Waterfront

The project’s key stakeholders are LandCorp, the City of Albany, the GSDC and the Department of Transport. The development was completed in June 2011 and includes serviced freehold lots for a mix of commercial buildings, tourist accommodation and entertainment. Developments on these lots are subject to the City’s planning and development approvals processes in terms of the commercial and residential accommodation mix.

Since the handover of the site in July 2011, the City of Albany has managed the Waterfront’s public spaces and the Department of Transport has been responsible for the 74-pen marina and associated infrastructure. The GSDC is a member of the Albany Maritime Advisory Group, which provides feedback into management decisions affecting the Waterfront.

Albany Waterfront Master Plan

The Albany Waterfront Master Plan is a collaborative project managed by the GSDC with partners, designed to activate the Albany waterfront precinct.

The area stretches  from the Port of Albany in the west, to the Albany Wool Stores in the east, and has significant community, economic, environmental and cultural value. Prominent state-owned assets such as the Museum of the Great Southern, Albany Entertainment Centre and the Port of Albany occupy this parcel of land, with unoccupied lots still remaining.

Stage 1 of the Albany Waterfront Master Plan was completed in late 2023, with Stage 2 currently underway.

Stage 2 will include considerable stakeholder consultation and collaboration with key partners to develop a plan to activate the precinct. The plan sets out to create a roadmap for future development of the area, focussing on improving liveability for the community, minimising barriers to economic growth, and keeping environmental sustainability high on the list of priorities.
