Expressions of interest for East Perth land

The State Government has identified a new development opportunity in East Perth and has called for expressions of interest to redevelop two car parks next to the train station into commercial use and a multi-storey car park.

Transport Minister Dean Nalder said it was an exciting opportunity to add to the vibrancy being created in East Perth by commercial and residential redevelopments.

The two potential building envelopes are 6,395 square metres for the southern lot and 7,718 square metres for the northern lot.

The land currently serves as staff parking on the southern and northern sides of the Public Transport Centre on West Parade.  Any development would not affect the parking for Transperth passengers.

“With such an extensive piece of land so close to the city, and CBD land at a premium, it makes sense to see if we can create a more practical and vibrant development,” Mr Nalder said.

The proposal allows developers to take a long-term lease over the land, which remains under the guardianship of the Public Transport Authority (PTA) in case network expansion is required in future decades.

“However, we’re open to a variety of ideas, and I urge developers interested in pitching their concepts to the PTA to take part in the process,” the Minister said.

Today’s announcement adds to the Government’s revitalisation plans for East Perth.  It coincides with the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority evaluating submissions for a mixed-use development opportunity at the East Perth Power Station site next to the transport centre.
