Parkside Walk is an exciting new development by LandCorp at the former nursery site located on Salvado Road, Jolimont between the Wembley Sports Park and Henderson Park. Mabel Talbot Park is located to the south-east of the site, while the Cambridge Street retail and commercial strip is one block (approximately 200m) to the north.
The site was previously used as a plant nursery by the City of Perth, until it ceased operation in 1994 when the Town of Cambridge was created, and has remained vacant since then.
What will the redevelopment look like?
The development will feature a range of attractive and contemporary housing types from single houses to low and medium rise apartments in a parkland setting. Pedestrian and cycle connections, linking the area’s surrounding green spaces and amenities, will be a strong feature of the development.
The approved Outline Development Plan for the site depicts the site accommodating up to 350 new dwellings. This will include 24 residential lots and up to seven apartment sites.
LandCorp has worked to ensure that the development layout is appropriate for the site’s location and context.
What planning approvals are in place?
