The Department of Communities is partnering with the private sector to deliver a vibrant new affordable housing development in Forrestdale.

Located 23km southeast of the Perth CBD, within the City of Armadale, the 38ha Forrestdale site is surrounded by the newly developed and developing suburbs of Piara Waters, Harrisdale, Hilbert and Haynes.

The site is approximately a 25-minute drive to Perth’s CBD and is close to public transport, schools and shopping centres.

The future estate is also adjacent to the Forrestdale Business Park – a major industrial hub that is under development and will generate significant employment opportunities.

The new lots will cater for a mix of social housing, affordable shared equity, seniors and full market sales opportunities.

The Forrestdale development will increase the number of affordable new housing opportunities in the southern metropolitan area. The first lots are expected to be available for sale in mid-2020.

Project updates will continue to be provided on this page. If you have any further queries, or if you would like to register for updates, please contact the project team at
