New riverview vision

By Olivia Duffey

Demolition of the iconic Riverview Motel has made way for a prime riverview frontage subdivision at the entrance to McLean Beach.

Frank and Di Rinaldi are in the process of having what was originally the Wenbern Lodge Motor Inn subdivided, and are exploring design options to see their dream come true.

The demolition was completed by December, which Mr Rinaldi said has made way for their new vision.

‘‘Things are progressing well, with the site now being transformed into a prime river view frontage subdivision, located close to McLean Beach, the hospital, medical centre, CBD, pubs and restaurants,’’ he said.

‘‘Planning is well on its way and the blocks should be available about September or later in the spring with a number of options.’’
