Revitalising Knutsford - the transformation has begun 

Knutsford, situated approximately 1.5km from the heart of Fremantle, is a 21 hectare former industrial area bounded by Stevens Reserve (Swanbourne Street) and Booyeembara Park (Montreal Street). Over the next 15 years through innovative master planning and design it will be transformed into a vibrant, sustainable community with potential for approximately 1,000 new dwellings and more than 2,000 new residents. 

The development will be mixed use, offering a range of housing types and styles, new public open space and amenity linking it to the existing Fremantle community. 

Opportunities for developers to participate in this residential development site are anticipated from mid 2017. 

LandCorp is currently progressing development of approximately 11.5 hectares of the precinct, which as outlined below includes a portion of the Knutsford Street East precinct, and the entire Swanbourne Street precinct. 

Knutsford Stage 1 

Stage 1 of Knutsford is being developed in partnership with the Knutsford Joint Venture (comprising of FJM Property, Georgiou Capital and Mainpart Holdings). Designed by award-winning Fremantle architect, Michael Patroni, this stage located on the corner of Blinco and Amherst Streets covers 1.6 hectares and on completion will comprise of contemporary apartments and terraced homes.

The first sales release of 23 houses and apartments was an overwhelming success with most dwellings selling in the first few months. The second sales release has also now sold out. A third release of 42 dwellings will occur very soon. To find out more visit

Comprising over 8.3 hectares of vacant land, the Swanbourne Street Precinct is bounded by Swanbourne Street, Knutsford Street, Amherst Street, and Stevens Reserve. The area will be transformed into a high quality residential precinct that will feature a diverse range of building types to address the changing needs of a growing population and include substantial new public open space along Swanbourne Street that responds to the City of Fremantle's Green Plan.
