A community and its culture matter. By seeking out and adopting best practice in urban development, we aim to set a new standard in sustainable and affordable housing that will breathe new life into Bentley and create a place with a heart and soul, where people feel they belong.
The Bentley 360 project provides an exciting opportunity for the Department of Communities and its development partner to drive one of the most significant medium-to-high density urban infill developments in WA.
The transformation of the site into a vibrant, thriving and integrated community will deliver a contemporary residential development of at least 1500 new dwellings, high-quality parkland and recreation spaces, as well as community, commercial and retail offerings.
With a focus on community connections, delivery of new state-of-the-art facilities and support services, and new employment and training opportunities, Bentley 360 will provide a safe, inclusive community with a strong sense of place and belonging for all residents.
The Brownlie Towers buildings located within the Bentley 360 project site will be demolished by Communities prior to development commencing on site. This will allow Communities and its development partner to deliver a leading-edge sustainable development in line with the project’s Aspiration and Objectives.
About the project site
The Bentley 360 site is located eight kilometres south-east of the Perth CBD, in the suburb of Bentley within the City of Canning. The surrounding area comprises primarily low-to-medium density residential housing and educational facilities.
Community facilities are conveniently located nearby, including existing primary and tertiary (Curtin University) educational facilities, sporting reserves and the Bentley Library. The library and other Council-owned community assets currently sit on the project site.
The Bentley Plaza shopping centre and Westfield Carousel – which is set to increase its retail space by 48,000sqm – are within four kilometres of the site, as is the Cannington activity centre, providing easy access to retail, dining, health, education and employment opportunities.
A procurement process to identify developers/consortia to deliver the project is underway. Further details can be found in The Precincts’ Information Memorandum.
Communities is committed to engaging with the local community to deliver housing that complements the existing Bentley community. Community consultation will be managed by the successful development partner with oversight from Communities.
