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. LandCorp and the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA) are the State Government agencies leading the project.
The City of Subiaco is working closely with LandCorp and the MRA 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 the oval and achieving developments of high-quality design.
Vision and masterplan
LandCorp has developed a vision for the Subi East Redevelopment Project and master planning is expected to commence later this year. The masterplan will involve detailed investigations into areas already explored as part of the Vision Concept, plus additional themes identified during consultation. The masterplan will include design guidelines and development policies, building heights, public realm design, landscape design, transport planning, engineering and heritage interpretation. There will be opportunities for community feedback on the masterplan before it is finalised in late 2020. More information
Bob Hawke College, Subiaco
The State Government is building a new, public-intake secondary school on Kitchener Park. Construction of Bob Hawke College is in progress and the school is expected to open with around 270 year 7 students in 2020. By 2025 the school is expected to cater for years 7 to 12. More information
The demolition of Subiaco Oval will begin in July 2019 and are expected to conclude in mid-2020. Demolition will include the grandstands, light towers, surrounding buildings and structures. Some parts of the site will be preserved including the State heritage-listed entry gates, the Sandover Medal Walk and the grassed playing surface which will be retained for use by students of the new high school and the community.

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. More information
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 would consider funding, ownership and management of a suitable site. If a co-shared multi-use recreation 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.
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 Main Roads, LandCorp and City of Perth on the proposal. The city has developed a concept design and is completing further traffic modelling which will be considered during the upcoming master planning phase.
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 - agreement between the City of Subiaco and the State Government
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. Download the MOU (PDF, 5MB).
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.
