About us

Urban Quarter (formerly Wallis Property) is a specialist land development company with a ten-year track record of delivering socially and commercially successful residential subdivisions.

Founded in 2004 as a one-man consultancy we have grown to an enterprise with ongoing financial and project management interests in land developments with end values totalling over $750m. In annual land sales we are now established in the top echelon of Western Australia’s best performing land developers.

Our success has been driven by an ability to identify and optimise key attributes of individual landholdings (notably naturally occurring features such as trees and vegetation, land undulations, waterways and bushland) to create residential estates that are defined by their close relationship to the natural environment. At the same time meeting the lifestyle needs and aspirations of residents.

Urban Quarter is owned and operated by senior industry professionals with career-long experience in urban development, including the delivery of some of WA’s largest masterplanned estates. Because we prefer to work with the environment rather than against it we are experts in overcoming technical challenges. We don’t believe in doing things the easy way; only the best way. That’s how we ensure that the places we create are not simply places for people to come home to, but communities they are also proud to be part of.

Our approach

  • Driven by Design

    Urban Quarter is a ‘design first’ developer. Prioritising quality design and site aesthetics is fundamental to our philosophy. We are committed to creating developments that fulfil the lifestyle aspirations of our target customers and the commercial ambitions of our clients and investors.

  • Dedicated to Detail

    Our approach to property development and management is supported by two core protocols: take nothing for granted and leave nothing to chance. Whether acquiring, designing, constructing, gaining approvals or marketing a project, our team follow rigorous procedures to achieve best-practice performance.

  • Creating Communities

    Urban Quarter is committed to meeting the long-term needs of the people who, ultimately, occupy our developments. Building sustainable communities, places with social as well as practical infrastructure, is at the very heart of what we do.

  • Enhancing Lifestyles

    Our developments provide residents with more than just a place to go home to. Recreational spaces – for adults to relax and kids to play – are common to our estates. Through community engagement programs we also facilitate access to local clubs and associations spanning everything from sports to the arts.

Partner with us

Urban Quarter has experience in successful investment partnering with both government and private clients. These include joint ventures, landowner delivery agreements and the formation of special vehicles for property development.

Our partners benefit from our extensive delivery expertise and ability to manage – and identify efficiences within – all phases of the development process. The land we choose to develop is assessed against a risk management model that has been fine-tuned over a decade and is calibrated to respond to the market conditions of the moment.

At Urban Quarter we also have a track record of investing in the communities we create. So your success and ours are one and the same. This brings us closer to our partners, helping us form strong, goal-driven relationships which, like our communities, are built to stand the test of time.
