Project: East Arm Marine Service Precinct Project: Darwin Business Park3 4 Project: East Arm Marine Services Precinct5 Where: East Arm Logistics Precinct Darwin Area: 181 ha Whats proposed: International maritime engineers Hyder Consulting, were engaged by the Corporation during 2010 to provide a prefeasibility study for a new marine precinct at East Arm. The prefeasibility report recommends the establishment of an inland marina (behind the mangrove line) and utilisation of funds from dry land sales and leases to assist in financing the development. This marina concept potentially preserves the existing mangroves on the northern side of the mouth of Hudson Creek and opposite Catalina Island. Historically, these mangroves have been identified for development. This concept is a significant variation from the existing strategic planning for East Arm, which has been informally adopted since the 1990s. Prior to seeking endorsement of any new concept, it is considered necessary to undertake a high level cost / benefit analysis on all possible locations for a proposed East Arm Marina and how the remaining waterfront land may potentially be used and developed for the highest and best use over the short, medium and long term. Due to the scarce availability of waterfront access, it is critical that potential waterfront activities be considered on a holistic basis which will then assist the Corporation to determine precincts for waterfront and non waterfront industries / activities. These investigations are complimentary to current NT Government work proposing the establishment of a Marine Supply Base. Our role: The Land Development Corporation is working to establish an industrial waterfront precinct at the East Arm peninsula. It is intended that East Arm will host businesses that directly support marina activities. Where its up to: Expected public tender for feasibility and business case to be released in late 2011 to be completed by mid 2012. Features: A unique approach to a unique area is required providing maximum flexibility whilst minimising development risk. t2030 aChiEvEmEnts: ES3.1.1, ES3.1.2, ES3.2.1, ES3.2.2, ES3.2.3, ES3.2.4, ES3.3.1, ES3.3.2, ES3.3.3 Industrial Projects 34
