NSW Land and Housing Corporation is redeveloping a social housing site at 1-5 Byloss Street, Chester Hill in partnership with Newbuild Developments.
Construction has now commenced on a two-storey, 10-unit residential apartment building on Byloss Street, comprising six two-bedroom and four one-bedroom units for seniors.
This renewal project is located within walking distance to public transport, local schools, a childcare centre and a local reserve. The $3.26M development in the Canterbury-Bankstown local government area will provide modern fit-for-purpose social housing designed to the highest standards for up to 12 new senior social housing residents.
It will complement the existing character of the street, which comprises detached single storey dwelling with some low scale multi-dwelling housing.
Byloss Street renewal project, due for completion in April 2022, will provide an uplift in social housing homes and feature solar power in common areas, accessible ground floor units, car parking including two accessible parking spaces, a new pedestrian footpath on Byloss Street, and the provision of a new pedestrian refuge island on Campbell Hill Road.
This development will be one of about 50 projects being delivered under the NSW Government’s $400 million Fast-Track Housing Construction Package, to help boost economic recovery from COVID-19 in local communities throughout the state.
In line with the NSW Government’s Future Directions for Social Housing plan, this project highlights the NSW Governments continued commitment to deliver well designed, fit-for purpose homes integrated within the community to create greater diversity and help strengthen support for social housing residents.
Around 17 jobs will be created as part of this project.
