Carter Lane precinct


Page index

Carter Lane Park is now open to the public. The new 3000 square metre public open space complements the existing Greenspine (Subiaco Common) and includes water features, public art, reclaimed heritage structures and picnic and barbecue facilities. The space has been designed to incorporate sustainability and waterwise outcomes. As the landscape matures the space will become a green haven in the centre of Subi Centro.

The city  recently completed the redevelopment of the Carter Lane Precinct, one of the last remaining industrial areas in Subiaco. 

The transformation of the area includes:

  • a new public open space for the community to enjoy
  • eleven single residential lots
  • two larger residential lots (one intended for medium density housing, and the other as a mixed use lot with commercial uses on the ground floor and residential above).

Infrastructure works

Infrastructure works completed include:

  • Development of a new public open space that includes lawn area, pedestrian paths, water features, public art, seating, lighting and barbecue facilities.
  • Retaining two small sections of the existing red face brick wall at the base of the original Bosich workshop to protect the barbecue area from prevailing south-west winds.
  • Creation of a small car parking facility adjacent to the new public open space.
  • Pedestrian access ways to link the site through the new public open space.
  • Roadworks that involved the extension of Price Street, linking it to Juniper Bank Way.

Subdivision plan

A number of community engagement activities were undertaken in 2012 to develop a concept plan and then a final subdivision plan for the site.  This subdivision plan was endorsed by council on 26 February 2013 and was lodged for assessment with the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA) and the Western Australian Planning commission (WAPC). In April 2014 conditional subdivision approval was granted by the WAPC.
