Why invest in the town of victoria park?

In five years the average growth of the Town’s gross regional product has more than doubled that of the state’s and the local labour market is stronger than Greater Perth and WA.

Over 50% of residents are under 35 and 40% of the community were born overseas. This is reflected with busy town centres, a variety of restaurants and a blossoming street art scene.

Close to Perth Airport and CBD, Vic Park hosts regional transport and commercial infrastructure: Armadale train line, Curtin University, Bentley Tech Park, and Optus Stadium.

With an aim of 19,400 more dwellings by 2050, there are significant development opportunities in established and emerging areas, including Burswood and Albany Highway.

Over 70% of Vic Park’s resident workforce has a higher education qualification. Curtin University and two South Metro TAFE campuses are located in the Town of Victoria Park.

HISTORY

Significant development in the Town began in the post-war years, with rapid growth during the late 1950s and 1960s.

The 1980s saw the opening of several major landmarks in the Town, including Technology Park in Bentley and the Burswood Casino.

The population increased gradually from the early 1990s, rising from about 24,000 in 1991 to over 32,000 in 2011. Within this time the Town had a name change from the Town of Shepperton, to what it is known as now, the Town of Victoria Park.

Originally famed for its car yards, the Albany Highway strip has transformed over the years, with the emergence of cafes, restaurants and bars in the area.

Future

A culture of innovation and a distinct Vic Park vibe is propelling the Town’s transformation into one of WA’s most sought after destinations for residential, commercial and leisure pursuits.

Vic Park is evolving, with ongoing investment in major developments, such as the Burswood Peninsula, securing the Town’s reputation as WA’s premier sporting and entertainment precinct.

Committed to growth and improvement, numerous masterplans and precinct plans are also in the works, and an update to the Local Planning Strategy is underway.

The Town of Victoria Park continuously strives to achieve it’s goal to become a dynamic place for everyone.
