Subiaco East Redevelopment Project
The Subi East project is the redevelopment of the area that includes Subiaco Oval, Kitchener Park, Mueller Park, the former Princess Margaret Hospital site and West Leederville train station. DevelopmentWA is the State Government agency leading the project.
The City of Subiaco is working closely with DevelopmentWA and other stakeholders to achieve the best outcomes for the Subiaco community. Key priorities for the city include maximising the amount of green open space, public access to Subiaco Oval, heritage interpretation and achieving developments of high-quality design.
Vision and masterplan
The Vision Concept for the Subi East Redevelopment Project was prepared in January 2019 and includes high level priorities like heritage, regeneration and green links. The master planning phase is currently underway and will determine the finer details like design guidelines, building heights, public realm design, landscape design, transport, engineering and heritage interpretation.
Bob Hawke College, Subiaco
Bob Hawke College is the State Government's new, public-intake secondary school constructed on Kitchener Park next to Subiaco Oval. The college will open in February 2020 to around 270 year 7 students. By 2025 the school is expected to cater for years 7 to 12. More information
Subiaco Oval demolition
Above-ground demolition works at Subiaco Oval are now complete and the majority of works are almost finished. Some parts of the Heritage-Listed site will be preserved including the entry gates, the Sandover Medal Walk and the playing surface which will be restored to its traditional AFL dimensions for use by students of the new high school and the community. Interim landscaping, including native plants and paths, will be installed around the site. Demolition information and updates
Subiaco Oval shared use agreement
The City of Subiaco is liaising with the State Government, the Department of Education and the West Australian Football Commission to establish a shared-user agreement for the future use of Subiaco Oval. The State Government has committed to providing the City with access to the playing surface for general community use and to alleviate pressure on existing playing areas.The City will provide an update to the community once an agreement has been finalised.
Multi-use recreation facility
One of the agreed principles in the MOU between the City of Subiaco and the State Government is to investigate the possibility of a co-shared multi-use recreation facility during the master planning phase. The investigation will consider funding, ownership and management of a suitable site. If such a facility is included in the final plans for the Subi East redevelopment, the city will consider the best outcomes for the community – in consultation with the community – before making a decision.
As a provision for this potential opportunity, the City has set aside funds in the 2019-20 budget to build six sports courts and an underground carpark as stage one of this project. The City will prepare a business plan and invite feedback from the community before preparing a report and recommendation for Council to consider. Read more
Kitchener Common Masterplan
The Kitchener Common Masterplan is the City’s vision for the precinct and was adopted by council in March 2017 following consultation on the North Subiaco Structure Plan and community feedback on different scenarios for Subiaco Oval. The masterplan was updated in August 2017 to account for the State Government's proposal and will be a reference point as the city progresses its partnership with LandCorp and the MRA.

Memorandum of Understanding
The City of Subiaco and the State Government signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in February 2018, securing future public access to Subiaco Oval and addressing the master planning for the precinct. The MOU includes the city’s key priorities and outlines how master planning will address traffic, transport, access and parking arrangements, and heritage interpretation of the precinct.

Two-way Hay Street and Roberts Road
The city is advocating for the conversion of Hay Street and Roberts Road to two-way traffic and is liaising with City of Perth, Main Roads and other stakeholders on the proposal. Concept designs and traffic modelling have been completed. Funding for this project was not included in the State Government's business case for Subi East. This is a priority project for the City and alternative government funding will be sought to make the required improvements to traffic flow.
Subiaco Cultural Space
The City of Subiaco is advocating for a cultural precinct that honours arts, culture, heritage and sport to be included as part of the masterplan. Located at the site of Western Australia’s historic home of football, the space would celebrate the long history and cultural contribution of football at the iconic Subiaco Oval. The City is investigating funding opportunities to support this project.
Throughout the project, there will be opportunities for community members to provide input and feedback. LandCorp has conducted initial consultation with residents, businesses and community groups through surveys, pop-up information sessions and an online engagement platform.
