The Town of Joondalup is looking for an experienced Hotel Operator to run a ‘high quality’ food and beverage business in Burns Beach, even before the new beachfront site is built.
Expressions of Interest are open all summer for businesses to lease and operate a restaurant or cafe in a two-story building project on a city-owned site at Burns Beach Park.
A town notice said it was looking for businesses that could “enhance the coastal experience” of the Burns Beach foreshore and attract visitors and locals.
“This is a rare opportunity for food and beverage operators looking for an absolute beachfront location with unobstructed ocean views,” he said.
The two-story site is a centerpiece of the city’s concept plan for the coastal node of Burns Beach, which was released for public comment last year.
The city worked with landscape architects LD Total and café architects Bollig Design Group to develop the concept plan after the idea of a restaurant or café on the site was raised over a decade ago .
Other key features include public restrooms and change rooms, a playground, a grass gazebo, open lawns suitable for events, markets and food trucks, shelters, picnic areas and barbecue grills, and a path south of Burns Beach Sunsets Village.
The city has allocated $3.4 million for the cafe/kiosk/restaurant project from 2022-25 as part of its five-year capital works program, as well as $3.3 million for the node’s infrastructure redevelopment coast of Burns Beach.
A proposal for another storey restaurant or cafe was approved for Beachside Park in Burns Beach in 2018, with Joondalup town councilors approving changes to the plans in October.
