Knutsford

Revitalising Knutsford - the transformation has begun 

Knutsford is a redevelopment precinct within the suburb of Fremantle. Situated approximately 1.5km from the heart of Fremantle, it is a 23 hectare former industrial area bounded by Stevens Reserve (Swanbourne Street) and Booyeembara Park (Montreal Street). Over the next 10 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 include residential and mixed uses, 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 redevelopment are anticipated from late 2018.

LandCorp will be in the unique position to offer clean, development ready, fully serviced sites for sale.

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