An exciting development is breathing life into 35ha of Subiaco once occupied by Subiaco Oval and Princess Margaret Hospital, and rejuvenating the surrounding streets.

Optus Stadium and the Perth Children’s Hospital replaced the two aging assets, creating an opportunity launch the large scale ‘Subi East’ project that’s set to transform life in Subiaco.

As a new state-of-the-art college opens to 250 year 7 students this year, families from all over are looking for Subiaco accommodation options as they settle in. And we’re here to help.

What to expect from Subi East

22 years after the first Western Derby was played at Subiaco Oval, the stadium hosted its last AFL game and closed the gates for good. Now less than 5 years on, work is well underway to transform the land from sports hub to vibrant lifestyle precinct.

The 35-hectare redevelopment includes:

  • Brand new inner-city college
  • Pedestrian bridges and walkways
  • Green link running through the area
  • Open recreational spaces
  • New multi-level apartments
  • Strengthened links to Perth CBD, Leederville and the coast

From the PMH chimney stack, to Subi Oval’s heritage-listed front gates that welcomed countless footy fans since 1935, Subiaco’s rich history of sport and stylish living are honoured as part of the $227-million redevelopment.

When the project is complete in the coming years, Subiaco will serve locals, long-term visitors and short-term guests with an array of places to shop, eat, drink and enjoy life.

What does this mean for accommodation in Perth and Subiaco?

New dwellings will bring a wave of residents to the Subiaco area. As the local area transforms and new stories added to a long history, more than ever visitors and families will be drawn to Subiaco.

The inner-city suburb has been the beating heart of Perth for so long and will be again as the treasured PMH and oval are reimagined for modern life. New shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, and green spaces will all recognise Subiaco’s prominence as a suburb close to both city and coast.
