The State Government today announced an underutilised parcel of land in the heart of Claremont will be transformed, with Georgiou Capital to develop the first apartment complex at LandCorp’s Claremont on the Park development.

Claremont on the Park, which borders Claremont Oval and is close to the local shopping precinct, will feature medium to high density housing including apartments, townhouses and a number of specialty boutiques, cafes and offices.

Lands Minister Brendon Grylls said LandCorp would work with the developer and the Town of Claremont to deliver quality housing that was well connected to community facilities.

“Claremont on the Park will deliver more housing and retail options, building on and further utilising existing amenities,” Mr Grylls said.

“The proposed design complements the Claremont Oval precinct, taking full advantage of the view and providing easy access from the apartments straight down to the oval.”

Claremont on the Park is a significant project to address WA’s population growth and urban sprawl, in line with the State Government’s Directions 2031 and Beyond initiative.

“Through projects such as Claremont on the Park we are helping to address WA’s growing demand for housing and revitalising underutilised spaces in some of Perth’s established and most sought-after suburbs,” the Minister said.

John Siamos, Executive Director, Georgiou Capital said the project has been designed to capture and capitalise on the parkland setting and the surrounding amenity Claremont has to offer.

“Georgiou Capital is delighted to have been chosen to deliver the first apartment development at Claremont on the Park, and we look forward to commencing work on what will be a landmark development in the Perth residential market,” he said.

“We are very pleased to have been given the opportunity by LandCorp to bring it to market.”

Claremont on the Park will include public spaces for community events, along with extensive walkways and cycleways to connect with transport and the Claremont town centre.
