Midland Livestock Saleyards up for sale

The Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority has begun marketing the former Midland Livestock Saleyards site, touted by Planning Minister John Day as a vital step in the renewal of the eastern suburbs.

The 14-hectare site, which has street frontages on Clayton and Lloyd streets, is best suited for large format retail or light industrial development, Mr Day said.

“We are seeking an experienced proponent who is best placed to develop the site in its entirety, ensuring commercial investment and employment opportunities for the local economy well into the future,” he said.

Burgess Rawson will coordinate an expressions of interest campaign, which closes on January 30.

The Midland saleyards closed in 2010, after operating as Perth's main livestock sales hub for more than 100 years. 

The yards were replaced by a new livestock selling facility in Muchea.

The state government has made significant investments in Midland in recent years, which has been the subject of substantial redevelopment since 2000.

Private and public sector spending in Midland since 2000 has totalled around $1.5 billion, with more than 3,750 dwellings and 7,500 jobs created in the process.

Flagship projects include the $350 million Midland Health Campus, which will be followed by a $60 million private hospital by St John of God Health Care, and a $50 million complex for WA Police which opened last year.

Also in the planning pipeline at Midland is a $150 million expansion of the Midland Gate Shopping Centre.

“Supporting quality commercial development will help the area to realise its potential as a thriving, productive centre for the east metropolitan region,” Mr Day said.
