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 master plan is the blueprint for future development and considers building heights, landscaping, transport and access and many other elements. The Subi East Master Plan was finalised in November 2020 following community consultation, led by DevelopmentWA. View the master plan here.
Subiaco Oval is open to the public outside of school hours. New turf has been laid, interim landscaping has been installed and the heritage gates have been restored.
Future use of Subiaco Oval will be shared between juniors sports, general community use, Bob Hawke College and the West Australian Football Commission. The City is working with the relevant stakeholders to finalise a shared user agreement which will outline the use, management and maintenance of the oval.
The demolition of Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) is expected to take 18 months. Preliminary works began in August 2020 and external structural demolition is schedule to commence in early 2021. DevelopmentWA has formed a Community Reference Group to provide feedback to the contractor throughout the demolition process. Find out more.
Time capsule project
DevelopmentWA is collecting photographs, stories and memories of the PMH to keep in a time capsule that will be buried in the redevelopment PMH precinct, and opened in 109 years. More information.
Bob Hawke College
Bob Hawke College was constructed on Kitchener Park next to Subiaco Oval and opened in February 2020 for year 7 students. Stage 2 construction will begin in mid-2021. By 2025 the school is expected to cater for years 7 to 12. 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 will consider funding, ownership and management of a suitable site. A site has been identified on the masterplan. Before making a decision, the City will consider the best outcomes for the community – in consultation with the community.

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 and the City is actively seeking state and federal funding opportunities. This is a priority project for the City.
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. If you would like to provide feedback or receive project updates, visit haveyoursay.developmentwa.com.au
