Your first peek at the proposed future plans for Cottesloe’s iconic Indiana.
Tattarang has unveiled plans for its vision to transform the iconic Indiana into a world-class beachside precinct.
The proposed plan includes a new multi-level terrace design with new restaurants, cafes, kiosks, promenade and covered public plaza, a multi-million dollar upgrade to Cottesloe Surf Life Saving Club, a relaxing day spa and a 31-room boutique hotel connecting to a rooftop terrace.
Birthed from over two years of planning and stakeholder engagement, the developed vision aims to create “a backyard for locals and a front door for visitors” and will look to retain and enhance the iconic exterior of the existing Teahouse building.
It features two separate but interconnected structures stepping down towards the ocean, which will replicate the existing Cottesloe Terraces and natural sand dunes landscape. Their plans will still include the existing Teahouse building which is set to be getting a major facelift while a new building at the rear will provide improved public shelter and spaces to enjoy.
Tattarang Director Nicola Forrest AO said the future of Indiana must respect the history while also delivering a sustainable future with improvements.
“We share the community’s passion to retain Indiana’s iconic western façade and to preserve the building’s legacy for future generations. As the committed custodians of this important site, we believe Indiana can, and should, play a more meaningful role in the lives of locals and visitors alike, and our ambitions are clear: we want to deliver the best beachside precinct in Australia; one for all Western Australians to enjoy,” Mrs Forrest said.
CEO Andrew Hagger has confirmed the project will be expected to create over 100 ongoing jobs and inject millions into the local economy during construction.
