Perry Lakes, Floreat

Project Description

The project involves the redevelopment of the Perry Lakes Athletic Stadium, State Basketball Centre and Rugby WA headquarters on Underwood Avenue in Floreat into a residential redevelopment with single housing lots, town houses and multi-storey apartment sites.

The project was delivered over multiple stages, including the demolition and remediation of the 1962 Empire Games Athletics Stadium, basketball stadium and grandstand, and the subsequent subdivision and installation of infrastructure services for LandCorp.

The development realises 233 lots which will deliver 630 dwellings made up of a combination of single residential, small multi-unit development sites and large apartment sites.

Our Role

LandCorp appointed NS Projects to manage all phases of the redevelopment of the 15.5ha Perry Lakes sporting facilities in Floreat into a leading residential project.

NS Projects has guided the project team through a complex planning approvals process set out by special legislation drafted by the state government when the site was resumed from the Town of Cambridge. NS Projects also managed community consultation, environmental approvals and all aspects of construction and delivery.
