The owners of the Subiaco Station Street Markets have lodged an application with the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA) for a four-storey development on the site, which would include a Coles, Target and specialty shops.
The MRA has advised that the application will be advertised for public comment later this month, and invites the community to make submissions on the proposed development at that time. More information, including a copy of the plans, will be made available on the public comment section of the MRA website. The City of Subiaco will also be providing a comment.
Mayor Heather Henderson said the city is a great supporter of markets, and knows how important they are to the community.
“As well as endorsing many community initiatives, the city has looked at a number of venues for markets over the years, from a flat roof over the Subiaco Train Station when it was developed in the 1990s to a current plan to upgrade the Forrest Square car park with potential infrastructure for market type activities.
“The city is committed to revitalising the whole of the town centre through place making and appropriate development, and we’re working on a range of exciting projects, including festivals and events, upgrades to infrastructure, and initiatives to support local businesses.”
The city partners with the weekly Subi Farmers Market and seasonal Perth Upmarket, as well as a range of pop up initiatives.
