Claremont on the Park Redevelopment

The award-winning Claremont on the Park responds innovatively to the multiple challenges associated with delivering quality, sustainable high density living and maximising the use of established public transport networks, education, medical and recreation facilities in one of Perth’s most established

With the historic Claremont Oval as its centrepiece, LandCorp’s master-planned Claremont on the Park development provides a sustainable physical, social and economic connection to the Claremont Town Centre and its established retail and entertainment precinct with the provision of more than 750 new homes, along with a range of complementary mixed use, aged care, retail and support industries.

In addition, following $16 million of State Government funding, the Claremont Football Club has re-opened new state-of-the-art clubrooms, incorporating facilities open to the community.

The Goods Shed - Claremont on the Park

The Goods Shed is a historic railway building located within the Claremont on the Park development and is Perth's newest hub for culture and community.

Restored, revamped, and repurposed by FORM and LandCorp, the building is not only a favourite place to enjoy a coffee, but hosts exhibitions, workshops, artist residencies and cultural events – delivering the goods in the shape of creative energy and buzz, year-round for the people of Claremont and surrounding community.


In June 2017, The Goods Shed received the Heritage Award at the WA Architecture Awards.

 The Goods Shed is positioned at the base of the Claremont train station overhead pedestrian bridge that connects the town centre to the northern side of the railway station. It provides a critical link to the established Claremont town centre to the south of the train line.



Elizabeth Quay – Awarded Australia’s best urban renewal project 2018

Voted best urban renewal project in Australia in 2018 by the UDIA, Elizabeth Quay has reconnected the city to the Swan River and has redefined Perth’s central city riverfront. 

Elizabeth Quay provides a contemporary waterfront destination for Perth and has transformed many hectares of largely under-utilised land on the shores of the Swan River into a vibrant and iconic destination, which is now the backdrop for major events and tourism promotions. 


It features a 2.7 hectare inlet surrounded by offices, apartments, hotels, shops, bars and restaurants. 

Through the work of the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority, the State Government of Western Australia committed $440 million to fund construction of the inlet, roads & services, public domain and the creation of ten development sites which in turn will attract a further $2.2 billion of private sector investment. 

When fully complete, the 10 hectare precinct will be a future place of work for 10,000 people and homes to 1,400 residents and will continue to be an exciting place to live, work and visit, generating essential economic activity for many years to come.


Yagan Square

Located in the heart of Perth’s CBD – within the arms of the heritage-listed Horseshoe Bridge – the 1.1 hectare Yagan Square is the flagship public space within the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority’s $1.39 billion Perth City Link.

Scarborough Beach Foreshore

Less than 20 minutes from Perth CBD and Fremantle, Scarborough has been transformed with a $100M joint State and Local Government funded redevelopment which has revitalised Western Australia’s most iconic beach and created a world-class beach destination.

Delegates will then be taken on a tour of the foreshore and shown a variety of facilities which provide activities for all ages including a new surf club, Sunset Hill, Whale Playground, art projects, skate bowl and parks, bouldering wall and half basketball court. Wide pedestrian and cycle friendly promenades have created a connection with the beach and stimulated place activation such as the popular Sunset Markets held every Thursday night during the summer. The Amphitheatre has been the focal point of the Australian Surf Life-Saving Championships and national beach volleyball tours, as well as concerts and the City of Stirling’s Summerset Festival.

The Snake Pit

Known as the Snake Pit to rock and rollers in the 1950-60s, this area has been transformed into a Skate / Scooter and BMX Plaza, with a bouldering wall and half basketball court.

The Skate Bowl is the deepest of its kind in WA at 12ft (3.66M) and is designed to cater for national and international competitions. The area attracts skateboarders of all abilities and also spectators who flock to watch stunts and tricks in a beautiful setting.

Whale Playground

The Lotterywest Whale Playground includes a life-size whale skeleton with a slide, monkey bars, ladders, swings and netted tunnels plus a huge custom made cubbyhouse, climbing pods and sensory play elements.

The playground is an art piece and inspired by the Noongar culture story that a whale will beach itself when it comes to the end of its life so it can return an ancestor’s spirit to the land.

Sunset Hill

Overlooking the playground is Sunset Hill, an idyllic place to unwind or have a picnic. The grassed hill is the perfect vantage point to watch skate park and BMX activities and can be used as a media location for major events. Not only does it offer wonderful ocean views and sunset photography, the northern slope can provide shelter from the south westerly sea breeze.

Tjunta Art Trail

This heritage trail reflects the dreamtime story of children who went missing and the spirit woman Tjunta who finds them. This story has been sandblasted and painted in five places and you can follow this public artwork around the foreshore. Other highlights include the Ethereal Welcome Hand sculpture and the Scarborough Beach destination sign which is inspired from iconic roadside signage and Scarborough’s car culture and provides the ideal location for photo opportunities.

Scarborough Beach Pool

This $26M facility not only adheres to the overall masterplan vision for Scarborough, but has become a feature point of the foreshore development. The only beachside pool in Western Australia has eight 50m lanes and four 25m lanes and multiple configuration options are available to cater for a wide variety of pool-goers. It is geothermally heated with a separate shallow 32oC leisure pool and has a 200 seat grandstand.

Private Sector Investment

The foreshore redevelopment has been the catalyst for increased national and international investment into the Scarborough Precinct with new hotels and apartments already constructed, under construction and more planned.

Recently, the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA) approved twin 43 and 33 story towers development comprising of 119 hotel rooms and 314 apartments, a Convention Centre, three level Observation Deck, Restaurant and Exhibition Space. The Tourism Council of WA said the development would boost Scarborough’s appeal as a destination and the economic impact of the project is estimated at $155 million per year.
