The Workshops

The Midland Workshops are a cluster of late 19th century buildings undergoing thoughtful restoration to provide an urban village for a new era. Retaining its authentic, industrial feel, the new Workshops urban village will be home to a range of residential, commercial, health, education, entertainment and creative industry uses.

Railway Square

Surrounded by cafes, shops, restaurants and bars and just south of the rail line, Railway Square will be at the heart of The Workshops development. The site celebrates its history through a peace memorial and heritage interpretation, while the large public square will provide space for recreation, meetings and events for generations to come.

Health precinct

Our Midland redevelopment project is bringing a number of new health services to the area.

The family owned and operated GP Super Clinic provides the community with a range of bulk billing and same day services, as well as onsite pharmacy, physiotherapy and Aboriginal health services. Next door, major cancer care provider Icon has opened its newest centre with the capacity to provide treatments to thousands of patients each year.

The Midland Public Hospital, a joint venture between the Department of Health and St John of God Health Care opened in 2015. The state-of-the-art facility delivers health care to both private and public patients, including new services such as cancer, intensive and high dependency care to Perth’s eastern suburbs for the first time.

Construction of the PlusLife Bone and Tissue Bank is underway, with their new office to be located within the heritage Railway Institute Building and new laboratories built behind.  A new medical university is also planned for the precinct.

Large format shopping centre

Located south of the rail line on the eastern edge of The Workshops precinct, the Clayton commercial precinct maintains a strong link with Midland’s retail heart.

Given its convenient location, the Clayton precinct is undergoing redevelopment for medium to high intensity employment focused use, including a large-format shopping centre, light industrial and retail outlets. Nearby, the 14-hectare former Midland Livestock Saleyards in Eastern Enterprise will be redeveloped to provide new investment land within the city and stimulate further commercial development. This area will become the main southern entry to the Midland city centre once Lloyd Street is extended to the Great Eastern Highway bypass.
