Master Planning is underway

Subi East represents one of the most significant urban redevelopment projects undertaken in Perth, involving the rejuvenation of 35 hectares of land into a thriving and connected inner-city hub.

The redevelopment area incorporates the former Princess Margaret Hospital, land around Subiaco Oval, and the new Bob Hawke College, together with West Leederville train station and the surrounding railway reserve land. Following significant community input in 2018 and 2019, the project is now beginning the Master Planning Phase.

A key milestone in the delivery of a vibrant new inner-city community at Subi East has been reached, with the completion of demolition works at Subiaco Oval. The completion of the demolition of the above ground infrastructure of what once was Subiaco Oval in late January 2020 is now complete, which officially kick starts the Master Planning process for Subi East.

The Master Plan will provide the foundations for the agreed land use, location of key facilities and public places and amenities. It will be the basis from which more detailed development plans can be established.

As part of the Master Planning of the Subi East redevelopment, DevelopmentWA are working to understand the importance of the area from a historical and narrative perspective.

    5 months ago

    As a part of its reform agenda, the McGowan Government has launched DevelopmentWA, the State's new design and development agency set to help shape the future of Western Australia.

    DevelopmentWA is the result of consolidating the operations of LandCorp and the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority and will capitalise on the combined power and expertise of the former agencies.

    It will be uniquely positioned to pursue a diverse portfolio of projects including industrial projects, urban regeneration and infill, tourism infrastructure, METRONET and innovation projects.

    As part of its strategic direction, the agency will serve as the commercial bridge between the McGowan Government and the private sector on development - creating opportunity for partnerships that will spark new growth and create jobs.

    DevelopmentWA has launched its first program of works, offering $3.8 billion worth of development and investment opportunities to the private sector in 2020.

    The opportunities, spread across the metropolitan, regional and industrial sectors, will see the creation of nearly 20,000 new construction and operational jobs, and 2,500 new dwellings as the land is developed in the coming years.

    Key metropolitan projects include:

    • Alkimos Central - The 20ha City Centre offers a substantial development opportunity with up to 67,000sqm of floor space for retail, residential, commercial, civic and institutional uses;
    • Cockburn Central - Lot 7 is the last remaining lot in Cockburn Central and is a landmark 4-hectare site opposite the train station;
    • Montario Quarter - This 6,817sqm heritage site is zoned Residential R60 and caters for medium density living options;
    • East Village, Knutsford - Lot 2 is now available through a Request for Proposal inviting offers for this innovative multi-unit, mixed residential site; and
    • 101 Hay St, East Perth - Expressions of Interest are sought for this prominent 5,335 sqm corner site in Riverside, East Perth.

    Some of the projects coming soon include:

    • Murdoch Health and Knowledge Precinct - The final two mixed-use development lots in Stage 1B will soon be available;
    • Hamilton Hill Senior High School Redevelopment - The first medium density site in the transformation of the former High School site; and
