UR­BAN revitalisation across the Perth metropoli­tan area is breath­ing new life into es­tab­lished sub­urbs, with in­fill apart­ment de­vel­op­ments an­chor­ing many of th­ese plans.

In Mid­land’s his­toric Rail­way Work­shops precinct, which is part of the area’s $1 bil­lion-plus re­newal plan, Vic­to­ria Quar­ter is a con­tem­po­rary multi-storey de­vel­op­ment com­bin­ing com­mer­cial and retail space with 70 one and two-bed­room homes.

Con­struc­tion of the mixed-used pro­ject be­gan last year and is set for com­ple­tion in the fourth quar­ter of this year, ac­cord­ing to de­vel­oper Mustera Prop­erty Group.

More than half the apart­ments, in­clud­ing all one-bed­room apart­ments, have sold.

Sell­ing agent Paul Conti, of Time Conti Sh­effield, said strong buyer in­ter­est in a short amount of time was heav­ily in­flu­enced by the sub­stan­tial re­de­vel­op­ment hap­pen­ing around the sub­urb.

“With­out doubt, the com­ple­tion of St John of God pub­lic hos­pi­tal, just 300m from Vic­to­ria Quar­ter, to­gether with the planned 121-bed St John pri­vate hos­pi­tal and the Curtin Univer­sity Med­i­cal School have been big sell­ing points,” he said.

“In­ter­est from health pro­fes­sion­als who want to be close to their place of work has made the de­vel­op­ment ap­peal­ing.

“Other buy­ers are those sim­ply look­ing to down­size and want the re­as­sur­ance that mod­ern fa­cil­i­ties, such as med­i­cal, health, retail and trans­port op­tions, are within reach while still en­joy­ing the feel­ing of liv­ing in a re­gional town steeped in his­tory.”

Vic­to­ria Quar­ter is on the cor­ner of He­lena Street and Foundry Road and will sit along­side Rail­way Square, a vi­brant open space where shops, cafes and restau­rants will cre­ate a pi­azza-style am­bi­ence.

The re­main­ing two-bed­room apart­ments, which start from $375,000, have qual­ity ap­pli­ances and high-end fin­ishes, in­clud­ing de­signer kitchens, lux­ury bath­room fit­tings and am­ple stor­age.

The homes have a free-flow­ing lay­out cen­tred on an open-plan main liv­ing area, which ex­tend onto large bal­conies, and also in­clude a park­ing bay.
