Site index

The City of Subiaco owns a parcel of land on Hay Street in Jolimont between Bishop and Tighe streets. In July, Council resolved to proceed with the sale of the site, in accordance with the business plan. Prior to the sale of the site, eight of the ten buildings on the property will be demolished and the lot will then be subdivided and sold.

About the site

The ten properties collectively form Lot 800 on Deposited Plan 73741 which is approximately 9624 square metres. Existing buildings on the site include commercial office spaces and warehouse buildings which were previously leased. The configuration of the property and improvements is shown in the aerial image below.

Scope of works

Demolition and asbestos removal

The buildings at 602-616 Hay Street and 2 Bishop Street will be demolished and asbestos removed prior to sale. It is intended that the buildings at 592 and 594 Hay Street will be retained.

The tender for the demolition works has been awarded and the successful contractor has been appointed. The works are expected to be completed by the end of December.

Project management


Part of the demolition works involved the removal of asbestos on the site. The removal of asbestos will be safely undertaken to minimise any risk to the public and local environment. The asbestos will be disposed of in accordance with Department of Environment Regulation standards.

During demolition, measures will also be put in place to manage and mitigate the exposure to dust, including the use of air-quality monitors to ensure dust levels do not exceed national benchmarks.

Traffic management

Intermittent lane and road closures may occur while the works are being completed. Traffic controls will be in place for the duration of the works to ensure safe access for local traffic to surrounding properties.

Environmental remediation

Following the demolition works and once all asbestos containing material and building materials have been removed from site, the city’s environmental consultant will conduct a thorough site inspection to ensure all asbestos has been removed from site.

Future of the site


The city has commenced the subdivision of the property into three lots prior to disposal. A subdivision application has been lodged with the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) and the city is currently awaiting the outcome of that application. 

Sale of the property

Before the end of the year, the city will appoint agents to coordinate the sale of the property intended to be by public auction. The sale of the property is expected to be finalised early in 2017. This page will be updated with information about the sale of the properties as it becomes available.
