Tonkin Park Industrial Estate
The Tonkin Park Industrial Estate has become a significant business and industrial hub. In contrast to the comparative industrial precincts of O’Connor, Welshpool, Balcatta and Malaga which are the same distance from Perth CBD, the Tonkin Park Industrial Estate has superior transport and access links. It has immediate access to the Tonkin Highway providing direct links to Perth Domestic and International Airports, and the Great Eastern Highway. From Bassendean, you can be in the CBD in just 15 minutes and Fremantle Port in 30 minutes.
The Ashfield Precinct Plan
The Ashfield Precinct Plan implements initiatives to actively encourages Transport Orientated Development (TOD) which is high-density development around railway stations and railway corridors. The Ashfield Precinct is affordable, close to public transport as well as shops and services. The new Park Estate adjacent to Bassendean railway station includes a high-density townhouse development.
A distinguishing factor of Bassendean is its range of housing options. From the new townhouses close to transport links, through to spacious homes overlooking the Swan River with polished floors and leadlight windows, prospective buyers enjoy a choice not found in other suburbs.
A National Hotspot for Growth
Bassendean achieved its place on the National Hot Spot radar because of the amenities in and adjacent to the town. These include 5.4km Swan River frontage, cycle trails and walking trails to suit all ages and interests through Ashfield Flats, Sandy Beach Reserve, Pickering Park, Point Reserve and Success Hill Reserve. It is also only a short distance from the Swan Valley and Midland where the Railway Workshops are experiencing a renaissance with the Super Clinic Development, new Swan Valley Hospital and FORM's Atelier.
Bassendean Town Centre
Bassendean Town Centre is an excellent model of an existing urban village on the Midland Rail corridor; with its historic main street, Bassendean Oval and surrounding residential areas.
