    First lot release marks new chapter for Subiaco Oval

    26/10/2022 11:30 AM
     
    • First two lots at Subiaco East have been released to the market
    • Lots will allow for two developments: up to 30 storeys; and up to 11 storeys
    • More than 300 apartments expected across the two developments
    • Lots are located on the edge of Subiaco Oval near the western goals

    One of Perth's most significant urban redevelopment projects is kicking into gear, with the first two lots at Subi East being released to the market.

     

    The two lots are located within The Oval Precinct and are expected to generate strong interest; being just two kilometres from the CBD and within walking distance of the entertainment precincts of Subiaco and West Leederville and surrounded by extensive areas of public open space.

     

    Near the western goals of the refurbished Subiaco Oval - Lot 1 will allow for a development of up to 30 storeys, with ground level mixed use offerings and approximately 264 dwellings, while Lot 2 will be up to 11 storeys and providing approximately 60 dwellings.

     

    Subi East will see the rejuvenation of 35 hectares of inner-city land to create a vibrant new north-eastern gateway to Subiaco - one that respects and celebrates the rich heritage of the area, while realising the importance of its prominent location on the doorstep of the Perth CBD.

     

    Once complete, Subi East will bring 2,700 new homes to the inner-city area, together with additional shopping, dining, and entertainment options, along with ample community amenity, including green spaces, sports facilities, and play areas.

     

    As a higher density development in a key inner-urban location, The Oval Precinct at Subi East clearly has a role to play in boosting the State's social housing.  

     

    Planning for the delivery of social and affordable housing has been undertaken on a precinct scale, with up to 12 per cent of new dwellings at The Oval to be delivered as social or affordable units.

     

    Developers interested in the Lot 1 and 2 release are encouraged to visit https://developmentwa.com.au/projects/residential/the-oval-subi-east/overview to find out more.

     

    Comments attributed to Planning Minister Rita Saffioti:

     

    "Subiaco East is one of the most comprehensive urban redevelopment projects we have undertaken in Perth and having the first two lots released to market is a big milestone.

     

    "This is an iconic site - right alongside Subiaco Oval where so many incredible football moments are etched into the memories of Western Australians - and I expect there will be a lot of interest in developing these sites and from people wanting to live at this location.

     

    "The $227 million, multi-stage Subi East development has been the subject of extensive community consultation and careful planning, to bring to life a vibrant urban village reconnecting the city with the western suburbs.

     

    "Subi East demonstrates the McGowan Government's commitment to breathing new life into urban infill areas - creating new opportunities for people to live, work, play, and learn right in the heart of our city."

     

    Comments attributed to Lands Minister John Carey:

     

    "The Subiaco East redevelopment is a prime inner-city location within walking distance of the vibrant hubs of Subiaco and West Leederville and is located close to public transport, schools, amenities and public open space.

     

    "Our Government continues to do everything it can to boost housing options across Western Australia.

     

    "We're committed to diversifying housing opportunities and the Subi East project will deliver more than 2,700 new dwellings to cater for a variety of residents and lifestyles.

     

    "Subiaco Oval has long been an icon of Western Australia and the Subi East redevelopment will deliver a major rejuvenation and revitalisation of the area with the aim to turn Subiaco back into a thriving inner-city precinct."

     

    Comments attributed to Nedlands MLA Katrina Stratton:

     

    "The Subi East project is really starting to build momentum. Just last week we witnessed the end of demolition on Princess Margaret Hospital and this week we have the first lots being released at The Oval Precinct.

     

    "The release of Lots 1 and 2 are a significant milestone, and given the location, I expect there to be significant interest in the sites."
