Montario Quarter

In planning for the next chapter of our State’s development agenda, cross-government collaboration is critical,  as well as creating a diverse range of opportunities suitable for private sector involvement and delivery. 

We have a number of residential, commercial and industrial opportunities throughout WA, including future single residential lots and a small multi-unit development site at Montario Quarter

A vision of great things to come

The successful proponents of the first two development sites at Montario Quarter were recently announced, including a snapshot of some of the amenities that will be on offer. 

Iris Residential and Primewest have secured Lot 37, which will become a mixed-use development focused on inter-generational living, with the convenience of everyday amenities at your doorstep. 

The development will feature ground floor retail and commercial, including a supermarket, health-related service providers, specialist food and wine providers, cafés and other boutique retail offerings. 

The residential component will include a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, positioned around a central landscaped podium with resident facilities including a communal vegetable garden, dining and lounge areas and a swimming pool. 

Contact Iris Residential on (08) 9321 5922 for more information on this development. 

The repurposing of Victoria House ('Lot 38') will be undertaken by Fini Group and is planned to draw on the history of the site by incorporating elements of health, wellness and art as inspiration for the development. 

Each of the six wings of the former hospital building is planned to include opportunities for community activation, such as food and beverage venues, artisan retail offerings, artist studios and a proposed furniture and homeware concept store. 

Fini Group are also proposing an Urban Farm, combining a plant nursery, educational programs and the opportunity for residents and hospitality venues to cultivate produce through a ‘farm to fork’ connection. 

In addition to the variety of apartments and townhouses proposed, this development will also include a ‘co-living’ space, providing affordable living options for students, young professionals and artists in residence. 

Contact Fini Group on (08) 9383 0700 or montarioquarter@fini.com.au for more information on the Victoria House redevelopment. 

Montario Quarter will offer the next evolution of inner city living - an urban village within a landscape setting.

Respecting the history of Montario Quarter

From its humble beginnings in 1893 through to its closure in 2014, the Shenton Park Rehabilitation Hospital touched the lives of thousands of patients, nurses, doctors and visitors. 

To honour the history of this site, roads throughout the new estate have been named after the doctors and nurses who had a significant impact on the hospital and its patients over the years, including:

  • Seymour Avenue - Agnes Seymour was the first nurse to be brought to Shenton Park Hospital.  Despite contracting a mild form of smallpox from one of her patients during an outbreak in 1893, Seymour battled through it and continued to care for other patients with the disease.  Part of the former hospital was named 'Seymour House' in honour of Agnes Seymour's courageous efforts.
  • Thorburn Way - Lined with retained Box Trees, this heritage-listed avenue has been named after renowned physician, Sir Ian Oriel Thorburn.  Over his 51 years of service to Shenton Park Hospital, Dr Thorburn was well-respected for his clinical acumen, as well as his charm and dedication to his patients.  The former Nurse's Quarter (Block B), located just south of this road, was also named Thorburn House in his honour.
  • Goatcher Vista - As a consultant rheumatologist to the Hospital, Dr Phyllis M Goatcher contributed enormously to the understanding and treatment of arthritis.  Dr Goatcher was named WA Citizen of the Year in 1975 and was awarded an Officer of the Order of Australia for her services to medicine.
  • Muecke Way - Dr Roy Le Page Muecke was the Medical Superintendent at Shenton Park Hospital from 1937 to 1946.  He worked closely with the Principal Architect in developing the plans for the new Infectious Diseases Hospital in 1938, and oversaw the construction of both the Metropolitan Infectious Diseases Hospital and the new Perth Hospital.
  • Sadka Lane - After serving her internship at the Infectious Diseases Hospital during Perth's first widespread polio outbreak, Dr Mercy (Marie) Sadka returned to Shenton Park as Australia's first female neurologist.  Dr Sadka established the Hospital's Stroke Rehabilitation Unit in 1959, which developed into a model neurological rehabilitation facility.
  • Dawes View - Starting in 1990, Dr Derek Charles Dawes was a Medical Administrator in the Rehabilitation Technology Unit of Shenton Park Hospital.  The Dawes Walk heritage walkway was also named after him, and this will be retained and incorporated into one of the parks at Montario Quarter.
  • Guttmann Approach - Sir Ludwig Guttmann was a neurosurgeon at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Britain and has been labelled the 'Father of the Paralympics'.  He visited Sir George Montario Bedbrook's Paraplegic Unit in 1957, which led to participation in the Stoke Mandeville Games the following year and the establishment of the inaugural Commonwealth Paraplegic Games in 1962.

Improving access

In order to provide sufficient access to Montario Quarter, the Nash Street/Selby Street intersection needs to be upgraded to allow for 4-way traffic. 

Traffic studies have found that the most efficient way of maintaining traffic flow and reducing congestion in this area is through the installation of a roundabout. 

Work has now commenced on converting this intersection to a roundabout, including the addition of a fourth leg providing direct access into the future retail and commercial heart of Montario Quarter.
