$400 million project to redevelop former Perth Girls School is approved by Development WA

The Major East Perth project is to deliver 742 new apartments, including 242 build-to-sell apartments constructed across two 25-storey towers.  The remaining 500 apartments will be the largest build-to-rent development in the State, delivered in a 15 to 37-storey development. It will include a significant number of affordable apartments, as well as 100 social housing apartments, and a range of Special Disability Accommodation apartments.

The new precinct will also include the refurbishment of the State heritage-listed school building into a creative mixed-use space. This space will include a microbrewery, restaurants and cafés, creative industry offices, art gallery and performance spaces managed by not-for-profit ARTRAGE Inc who have run Fringe World and other events from the venue over the past three years.  Other amenities will also include a 2,948 square metre supermarket and other commercial spaces.







The revitalisation of one of Perth’s most iconic sites will showcase best practice urban design, breathing life into the iconic site creating a distinctive and vibrant local hub for multi-generational living. Located on the corner of Wellington and Bronte Streets, the future development will capitalise on its enviable hilltop position through a clever stepped design, providing future residents with sweeping views across the Swan River, the city, Matagarup Bridge and Optus Stadium.

The new development’s design will recognise and celebrate the site’s rich and important Aboriginal and European cultural history and encourage more people, activity, and diversity to East Perth.

The development is expected to deliver 300 jobs during the construction phase and 150 onsite jobs upon completion.
