Matching your block with the right strata development

Are you interested in developing your property? Every block has its own unique zoning that stipulates the type and number of dwellings you are able to build.

Here we cover some of the main development options so you can work out the best choice for your block type.

Rear strata projects

What are they?
Rear strata projects are one of the most popular development types - a basic subdivision that allows you to turn one block into two blocks by building a new house behind the existing.

Is my block suitable?
Providing that your property fits the correct R-Code zoning, this development is ideal for homeowners with a large backyard. If you’ve outgrown your home, you could live in it while you build out back, or rent out the new home to supplement your income. Talk to experts in strata developments (Perth) to see if your block is suitable.


Duplex or triplex development (Perth)

What is it?
Maximise your block’s potential by subdividing your existing block into either two or three separate lots to create a triplex or duplex development.

Is my block suitable?
Your block has the potential for either triplex or duplex developments if it is appropriately zoned. Talk to experts in strata developments (Perth) to see if your block qualifies.


Narrow lot townhouses

What are they?
Got a narrow block and can’t fit standard sized houses? Narrow lot townhouses provide more housing options within limited space.

Is my block suitable?
The WA State Government is looking to increase the density of many suburbs in Perth. If your zoning is suitable, this investment could potentially deliver high returns. Talk to leading narrow block developers (Perth) to see if block qualifies.


Fully completed homes

What are they?
Also known as ‘turnkey’ packages, here you’ll pay accurate and fixed costs upfront for the builder to take care of everything, from design to council approvals, and construction.

Is my block suitable?
Any block is suitable for a fully completed home. This option is ideal if you are looking to build an investment home, but don't want the hassle of chasing up council approvals or organising suppliers to complete the home’s finishing touches.


Grouped housing

What is it?
Grouped housing is a high-density strata-title development, such as a retirement village or a group of strata villas.

Is my block suitable?
Designing for a grouped housing development requires a deep understanding of the R-Codes.
If you have a large block with the correct zoning for multiple strata units, grouped housing may be a great investment option with high returns for those willing to meet additional local council policies.


Multi unit development (apartments)

What is it?
A multi unit development is designed to promote affordable infill development near main transport links or commercial areas. They are built up, not out, so you can build a high volume of residences in one area.

Is my block suitable?
With recent changes to residential design codes, units, villas or townhouses are making way for multi unit development options such as apartment buildings. Check with your council to see if zoning permits high-density living, then talk to experts in unit development (Perth) to see what’s possible.
