The Department of Communities (Communities) is partnering with housing industry experts through the Medium Density Development Panel to construct 22 apartments at Lot 200 (11) Ashton Avenue, Claremont (2,326m2).

The site is on the corner of Ashton Avenue and Mofflin Avenue and is an amalgamation of three separate land parcels. It is adjacent to the north-eastern corner of the Claremont Showgrounds.

It is 250m from the Loch Street train station and 250m from a bus route running along Alfred Street to the north, and just two train stops from the bustling Claremont Quarter.

The proposed development is 100m from a post office, dentist, medical centre, specialty shops and 800m from the Mt Claremont Farmers’ Market. It is 6.5km from the Perth CBD and in the catchment area for Shenton College and Mt Claremont Primary School.

The development is aimed at increasing housing affordability and diversity in Claremont, with one, two and three-bedroom apartments on offer to ensure more people have a place to call home. The development will deliver high quality, functional and attractive apartments, incorporating sustainable design initiatives and several apartments designed to a Silver Level Livable Housing Design standard.

Lot 200 (11) Ashton Avenue is being delivered through the State Government’s $394 million Metronet Social and Affordable Housing and Jobs Package.

Construction is estimated to start in the second half of 2020 and is expected be completed by 2021.​
