Set around the Claremont Oval, the project was lauded for being an outstanding
example of inclusive planning and revitalisation.

“Claremont on the Park has successfully transformed an underutilised sporting facility into a vibrant activity centre alongside the creation of new homes, retail and commercial offerings, and cultural and community spaces,”

Sandra Brewer, Property Council WA Executive Director

Ms Brewer also said the project “provided a blueprint for urban infill in established heritage areas, providing a precedent for future redevelopment with implications for the broader Perth community.”

Claremont on the Park will bring 850 new homes to the area, also includes 11,700 square metres of commercial space, and 2,600 square metres of retail space.

With some 2,000 new residents and workers coming into the area when the project is completed, 30% of the project area is publicly accessible open space.

The project was the product of extensive consultation, RLB Managing Director, Mark Bendotti said, “Claremont on the Park is the culmination of more than 15 years of dedicated consultation and inclusive planning to deliver an outcome that best met community expectations,”.

The project was also a national finalist for the Award for Government Leadership, with all state finalists eligible for the national award.
