Burswood Goodwood Parade Warehouses

BECAUSE ALL HISTORY IS IMPORTANT series

Whilst the photos largely focus more on the corner warehouse (number 104-106) in a pictorial sense, both warehouses (102 & 104-106) tend to be connected in the way of expressions of interest and development applications.

Sales History

  • 104-106 Goodwood Parade was built in 1965 over 1,529m² with the only history listed as sold on 20 December 2019 for $3 million.

  • Ross Scarfone Real Estate expands on this with a leasing, which began on 31 July 2012. The floor space is an approximate 1,000m² which includes the 180m² reserved for offices.

  • Real Commercial list the warehouse as being sold on 18 February 2020 for an undisclosed amount. The property is zoned as Town of Victoria Park's Office/Residential zone, which allows for a residential development of up to 15 metres tall.
     

Perth Mower Centre

Whilst they appeared to have once been a tenant in this warehouse, the only information that can be found on them is a brief listing for their business name, which is marked as having been registered on 08 August 1981 and cancelled on 15 September 2008.

Perth Dishwasher Centre

Like the Perth Mower Centre, which no-doubt was a joint business, the only information that can be found, is a business name registered on 22 May 1981 and cancelled on 11 June 1990.

Redfurn Office Furniture

They appeared to have operated out of 104-106 Goodwood Parade prior to December 2004 (judging from their now-defunct website), although they were established in 1980. With a focus on manufacturing and supplying quality commercial seating, their range of clients was extensive and included: Armadale Hospital, Australian Cricket Board, Bankwest, Curtin University, The Supreme Court of Western Australia and The University of Western Australia.

 

Between February and October 2009, they moved the company to Malaga, although the signage on the Goodwood Parade warehouse stayed until it was stripped and renovated in November 2022. A fire destroyed their Malaga warehouse and showroom in September 2011, causing more than $3 million worth of damage. The fire was believed to have been caused by an electrical fault and was responded to by 10 crews and 30 firefighters.

Between 2010-2011, the company became known as Atama Furniture and continues to operate today from a warehouse and storeroom in Balcatta. Although their website maintains they are Western Australia-based, Atama Furniture operating from NSW was founded in 1987.

  • The business name Redfurn Commercial Furniture (Selsea Investments) was first registered on 07 February 1986 and was cancelled on 30 January 2016.

  • The business name Atama Furniture (Greenstyle Nominees) was registered in Western Australia in April 1988.

The Town of Victoria Park Council discussed the application and permitted the use of a Tavern on the said property, despite a Tavern initially being prohibited within the zone (p.7). The initial application requested the classification of a Brewery, although a Tavern brings more flexibility to a business' operation, particularly in relation to the liquor licence required.

Blasta Brewing Company, at the time, were operating from a property located at 84-88 Goodwood Parade. They had previously applied to the Victoria Park council for a change of use from 'Showroom' and 'Light Industry (Factory)' to 'Tavern' and 'Light Industry (Micro Brewery)' which had been approved and implemented. The Company wanted to continue leasing the property for an extended period of time, although this wasn't agreed upon by the lessor who granted a shorter extension, until the end of June 2023 (p.9)

The Proposal

No.98 - Patron car parking, accessible via Goodwood Parade

No.100 - Additional car parking, the proposed outdoor dining/area and a kids' play area

No 102 - Beer hall which includes the bar, cool room, brewery production area containing four beer tanks and seating for patrons.

No.104 - Northern & middle sections: The main bistro area with seating for patrons, amenities, the main restaurant area, kitchen, cool room, storeroom, freezer, bar and a second brewery production containing six beer tanks. Southern section: A cafe, takeaway window, staff room, additional storeroom and amenities.

It is expected that up to 2,000 barrels will be produced on a yearly basis.

Although I haven't been able to confirm whether or not they've moved to their new premises, Blasta Brewing Company's website still lists their address as 84-88 Goodwood Parade. Regardless, no doubt their new site will look just as fantastic as the photo above, which could be from either their current site or their High Wycombe location.

Many of the photos on their website are incredible and clearly purport to show all future patrons that everything about them is reputable and nothing short of high quality! Without even considering the food or their brew, the spaciousness, contrasting colours, interior design and decor... are definitely well planned and inviting!
