The Connected Living Initiative has a vision to help transform Perth’s housing market by delivering more affordable developments around key transit precincts and activity centres.
Detailed proposals for five Connected Living sites (listed below) are currently being prepared. Housing expects to announce development partners for the first sites in early 2017.
The Initiative represents the first time Housing has engaged in a transport aligned initiative of this scale. Each of the chosen locations were selected for their excellent transport connection and proximity to existing and future planned local amenity. They also present the opportunity to deliver against the Connected Living vision and the objectives of affordability, diversity, design quality and innovation.
- Butler (Lot 1757 Fintona Crescent)
- East Perth (Lot 801 Hill Street)
- Gosnells (Lots 1283 and 1026 Wheatley Street)
- Midland (Lots 926 and 927 Furnace Road)
- Perth (Northern portion of Lot 52 Pier Street)
The diversity in the site locations and attributes presents opportunities for Housing to capitalise on the growth of multi-unit living across the metropolitan area, and will ultimately pave the way for future infill and transit oriented living in metropolitan Perth.
The Connected Living Initiative responds to a key deliverable in the Aiming Higher action plan, to “Initiate development of at least five metropolitan sites near train stations in Perth to create approximately 500 apartments focused on affordability and transit oriented living.”
