Two projects providing more than 30 new homes close to public transport in Maylands and Bayswater are now complete.
The developments at 1 Foyle Road, Bayswater and 292 Guildford Road, Maylands are part of the Departments’ $394 million METRONET Social and Affordable Housing and Jobs Package.
Demonstrating the close working relations between the Department and the residential housing sector, the projects supported almost 40 jobs during construction and bring much-needed housing diversity and affordability to the Perth metropolitan region.
The Foyle Road development, close to the Bayswater town centre, is only 200 metres from the METRONET Bayswater Station Upgrade which will attract investment into the area and help increase its appeal as a place to live, work and visit.
Built by JCM Construction, the five-level residential building features 17 affordable one and two-bedroom apartments with good natural lighting and private balconies. It includes a shared rooftop terrace for socialising and relaxing and is estimated to have generated about $8.5million in economic activity during its construction. View the project video.

Built by Carbon Developments, the Guildford Road development features 12 two-bedroom and four one-bedroom units and generated an estimated $6.2 million in economic activity during construction.
Fourteen of the homes are available for full-market sale, with two allocated for social housing. The apartments are a short bus ride away from the Perth CBD and within walking distance of Meltham and Maylands train stations, shops, recreation facilities and other amenities.
