Commercial property investment in rural Western Australia may become more attractive, with the state government injecting millions of dollars into refurbishments and town makeovers.
Regional development minister Brendon Grylls said Tom Price has undergone a $10 million facelift, with the first stage opening this week (December 20).
The project included vital upgrades to water, sewerage, power and drainage systems, as well as cosmetic works to improve the town's appearance.
Mr Grylls said the project is a major boon or residents, visitors and businesses.
"The transformation of the mall precinct and upgrades to community facilities provides a pleasing space that appeals to the community and visitors," the minister explained.
"I am confident the redevelopment has improved the liveability for locals and helps satisfy the needs of an expanding town."
For those looking at commercial retail property investment options in the mining town, the project may be of interest, with it potentially increasing the profitability of business in the region.
Upgrades also included new streetscaping, landscaping, improved open spaces, new shade structures and facilities for tourists.
Mr Grylls said the project is an example of the state government's commitment to building vibrant and liveable communities across the state.
