Australia’s leading developer of masterplanned communities, Stockland, has acquired more than 4,600 residential lots in the fast-growing north-west, north-east and south-west metropolitan corridors of Perth.

The three lot acquisition includes a 40 hectare parcel of land in Sinagra for $53 million (above); 334 hectares of land in Baldivis for $27 million; and 11 hectares of land in Brabham for $11 million.

Stockland has invested and operated in WA for 16 years with a current portfolio of assets worth $1 billion.

The 40 hectare Singara parcel 23 kilometres north of the Perth CBD will offer future residents views across Lake Joondalup.

The Baldivis acquisition of 334 hectares is 37 kilometres south of the Perth CBD in the south west corridor and near the Stockland Baldivis shopping centre.

The 11 hectare site in Brabham will be a consolidation into the existing Whiteman Edge residential project, 20 kilometres from the CBD.

It boasts a park within 300 metres of every home including the brand new $2 million Jungle Park, the all-abilities Livvi’s Place Playground, basketball hoops and a kick-about oval.

Stockland group executive and CEO of residential Andrew Whitson spoke of the improved Perth market.

“We’ve seen early signs of improved economic conditions in WA, particularly in Perth, and this additional land will enable us to plan for three new liveable, affordable residential communities over the long term," he said.

“These acquisitions set us up well to take advantage of future demand in the coming years."

Col Dutton, Stockland general manager for Western Australia, said the three sites are well located near existing or planned community infrastructure including transport, retail centres, schools and parks. 

“We are committed to helping more Western Australians move into their own homes by creating a diverse range of liveable and affordable housing options at our connected masterplanned communities," Dutton said.

“In Brabham, the additional 200 lots adjoin our existing Whiteman Edge project, which enables us to leverage planned infrastructure including a retail town centre, future primary school and the planned Ellenbrook rail line, part of the MetroNet project.

“The Sinagra site has capacity for nearly 700 home sites, with a large proportion offering views across Lake Joondalup and the surrounding natural landscape, and includes plans for a new primary school.

“At Baldivis, our plans for a new residential community will include around 3,700 homes conveniently located just off the Kwinana Freeway within 3 kilometres of Wellard Rail Station. The site is a 30 minute drive to more than 100,000 jobs, including major employment areas in Rockingham, Kwinana, Henderson and Bibra Lake.”
