Estimated to create 1,900 jobs and generate $2.32 billion in economic activity, a 220-hectare METRONET-linked housing project development will connect Swan Valley to Perth CBD.
Set to change the face of Perth’s urban development, Housing Minister announced a once-in-a-generation partnership between the Department of Communities and Peet Brabham Pty Ltd.
Less than 23 kilometres from Perth’s central business district, the Brabham project will be settled on the doorstep of the Swan Valley, located on the planned METRONET Morley-Ellenbrook rail line.

The development of the project is expected to build 3,000 homes, schools, shops, and recreational areas that are close to the proposed Whiteman Park train station. The project will also create and support 1,900 direct and 5,900 indirect jobs and generate an estimated $2.32 billion in economic activity.
This industrialized community creation at Brabham will incorporate environmental sustainability principles, best practice water and innovative water design and ensure the continuity of affordable and social housing supply in Perth North-Eastern corridor.
Supported by McGowan Government’s METRONET transport centrepiece, the project is scheduled to start in 2019.
