Apartment Developments Perth

Butler Apartments

To meet the soaring demands around Perth for inner city living, many residential zonings and local authority town planning schemes have recently changed. Developers are discovering they can now build high-density developments in many Perth suburbs where previously only units, villas or townhouses were permitted.

This makes apartment developments Perth wide an extremely attractive option, as the capital returns, profits and rental yield is much greater than what you could otherwise achieve on the same land.

Before embarking on apartments, Perth developers need to check the Residential Planning Codes (R-Codes) of the area and carefully study development restrictions.

Below we have provided a few examples of zonings and how many apartments you may be able to construct on a given piece of land. As a general guide, a 1400sqm block zoned R40 would potentially support six single story units. The same block taking advantage of Class 2 building methods would potentially support 10 to 14 units.

It’s important to remember that every piece of land has its own unique parameters, making any calculations subject to variables such as local authority policy and proximity to public transport, as well as compliance for parking, stores, courtyards and more.

As R-Code specialists, we can consult with local councils and planning consultants on your behalf to work out what’s possible on your site.

How to profit

Traditionally, Australians have favoured a large home on a big block of land over an apartment. However, demand for smaller living spaces in inner city locations is growing rapidly.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) predicts an increase in the number of single person households by 1.7 million over the next 20 years, and expects that couples without children are set to outnumber traditional families by 2031.

This means that not only will more houses be required, but there will also be an increase in demand for smaller sized dwellings.

Remember - when you choose to build apartments (as opposed to units or townhouses), the land value remains constant, but the potential profits, capital returns and rental yields are likely to be much greater.
