DEMOLITION COMMENCES FOR SUBIACO’S CARTER LANE PRECINCT
Subiaco Mayor Heather Henderson visited the old Bosich engineering factory in Subi Centro recently to commemorate a significant milestone for the City’s Carter Lane Precinct redevelopment. Demolition works have begun at the site which will see the end of one of the last remaining industrial sites in the area.
The new development will turn what was an underutilised site into an attractive, functional urban place which will also serve as a link between the existing Green Spine and Centro Avenue.
The proposal includes 11 single house lots, a mixed-use building site facing Centro Avenue, and a residential apartment lot fronting the Greenway. A significant portion of the site will be redeveloped as a new area of public space, including a grassed area, pedestrian links, water features, public art, seating, lighting, and barbecue facilities.
Rowe Group, lead consultants for the project, undertook an extensive consultation process at the beginning of the project, holding community workshops, information sessions and promoting concepts.
“It’s crucial to engage with the community, especially with a site that is in such a sought-after location, and addressing the concerns of the local community has been one of the biggest challenges of this project. The consultation process allowed us to get the community’s input and provide information to them more freely so that the final result is a better balance of the community’s needs and those of the local authority and MRA.”
The redevelopment will feature some of the site’s former industrial building elements such as original wall and timber structures and a metal-working lathe left behind by the former tenant.
