Subi East

With the opening of the new Perth Children's Hospital and football having moved to the new Perth Stadium, the State Government is planning ahead for a vibrant future for one of Perth's most loved suburbs.

Known as Subi East, the project will see the rejuvenation of 35.6ha of land to create an exciting new north-eastern gateway of Subiaco - one that respects and reflects the rich heritage of the area whilst realising the importance of its prominent location right on the edge of Perth's CBD.

The Subi East Redevelopment aims to transform the area by creating vibrant new places for people to live, learn, work and play on the doorstep of the Perth CBD. Master planning is expected to commence in 2019.

The Draft Vision 

Have your say - and help further shape the vision for Subi East.

Feedback on the draft vision closes 5pm Friday 14 December. 


The Subi East overarching objective is to create an entry statement for Subiaco, a landmark area comprising a series of precincts, each offering a different experience.

It is still early days for the future of Subi East, but a number of factors will heavily influence planning for the area. Some of these key factors include:

  • The new Inner City College: as a priority initiative for Government, work commenced earlier this year on the redevelopment of Kitchener Park as the site of the Inner City College to accommodate 2000 students.
  • Subiaco Oval: While the grandstands and surrounding area are earmarked for redevelopment, the oval itself will be repurposed for use by students of the new Inner City College and the community. The heritage listed gates will be retained and the components of the Sandover Medal Walk will be carefully removed during works and later reinstated.
  • The Princess Margaret Hospital site: extensive investigations are required before we can begin planning for its future, but heritage features such as Godfrey House and the Multi Faith Centre will be protected.
  • Mueller Park: this popular community destination will remain as public open space.
  • Railway Reserve area around West Leederville Train Sation.  The Subi East redevelopment area is bordered by the rail line, as well as the adjoining cycle way and pedestrian links, making West Leederville train station a key transport node/destination for Subi East residents, workers, students, and visitors. Therefore it is incorporated as part of the planning process to ensure the most appropriate development outcomes are considered.

Throughout much of 2018 we conducted an extensive series of investigations, technical studies, forums and workshops with key stakeholders and industry experts to help us get a clearer understanding of:
• what each precinct has the potential to offer;
• how they could integrate with the surrounding communities;
• how they could reflect the deep Aboriginal connection to the area; and
• how they could complement the rich cultural and heritage values associated with Subiaco.
We also went out to 23,000 households and businesses in Subiaco and surrounding areas with a survey designed to start the conversation about a vision for Subi East. Just over 1,500 responses were received and the feedback has helped to shape the draft vision.

A New Way of Living

Subi East renewal project will create new places to live, learn, work and play for thousands of people. Bringing together innovation, design excellence and housing diversity, Subi East will offer ultimate city living.

As part of our planning to make Subi East a sustainable community, we'll focus on a range of transport options to help reduce the reliance on cars. We'll look for ways to make the most of West Leederville Train Station and how to integrate the station into the community.

Our vision to create a better connected inner city village will respect the existing fabric of Subiaco and draw on the successes and learnings of other award winning projects. The plan is for a new green spine to extend from Subi Centro through to Subi East, providing a continuous stretch of public space that will encourage more cycling, walking and outdoor recreation.

Celebrating the History

Thousands of Perth families have a strong connection with Subiaco, from early settlement, a love of football, or even the care and comfort provided by Princess Margaret Hospital for more than 100 years.

Our redevelopment will celebrate and reimagine the past, sharing the stories and making way for an exciting future that builds on the suburb's character and sense of place.

Noongar history, as well as more recent social history, particularly the Princess Margaret Hospital and Subiaco Oval sites, will be retold in ways that honour the place, the people and the strong community connections they hold.
