What is happening at Hamilton Senior High School?


WA’s land and infrastructure development agency DevelopmentWA purchased the Hamilton Senior High School site from the State Government in January 2018. DevelopmentWA has been asked by the State Government to take on this revitalisation project based on its award winning track record in transforming school sites into thriving new communities. The school has been demolished and the land remediated land prior to  redeveloping the site for residential use, which will incorporate public parks and bushland. 

Why is this site being developed for housing?


Projections show that by 2050 Perth’s population will reach 3.5 million people. As Western Australia’s land development agency, one of our responsibilities is to ensure the availability of land for jobs and land for living for current and future Western Australians. Urban regeneration is a key strategy to help make the most of existing infrastructure, including roads, access to public transport, established job opportunities, businesses and health and education facilities. DevelopmentWA identifies suitable infill and urban renewal sites in established communities and develops them in a way that is sympathetic to their surrounding environment and community. The Hamilton Senior High School site is in the southern corridor of Perth, near excellent infrastructure and facilities and presents an ideal opportunity to help address Perth’s rapid population growth while improving local amenity and housing diversity.

What is DevelopmentWA’s role?


DevelopmentWA, as Western Australia’s land development agency, creates connected, vibrant urban places around Perth. DevelopmentWA will transform the former Hamilton Senior High School site into a residential area that integrates with the surrounding area and that will support the City of Cockburn’s Revitalisation Strategy.

How will this development fit in with the local community?

DevelopmentWA’s goal is to transform the site into a new community that integrates with the surrounding area and that supports the City of Cockburn’s Revitalisation Strategy. Residents will enjoy a vibrant and connected community that offers a diverse range of modern housing options.

What happened to the old buildings?

DevelopmentWA has demolished the school buildings and remediated the site in accordance with relevant, health, safety and environmental guidelines and used best practice for waste management and recycling.

How many houses will be built?

The redevelopment will include 232 lots and more than 330 new homes for up to 800 people. Homes will range from single residential flat and split-level lots to terrace homes, 125sqm compact lots and five grouped housing sites.

What do civil works include?

The estate vision has started to come alive with electricity, water, roads and retaining walls all to be installed between now and Autumn 2021 as well as estate entry fencing and the planting of street trees and verge areas.

When will land be available?

Following the completion of civil works, land is expected to be available mid-2021. Register your interest or get in touch with our sales agent Hayden Groves from DethridgeGroves on 0411 615 582.
