Summary: In response to a big post-Second World War population boom, the State Housing Commission took over a 5 square kilometre area of land in Hamilton Hill in 1954. Medium and low density housing was built, as well as blocks of flats and a shopping centre. The majority of this development became modern-day Coolbellup. The Yaralla flats were built in the late 1960s and were renamed Juliet Court in the late 1990s as part of a revitalisation strategy.
