We’re working with property developer Billbergia Group and not-for-profit Evolve Housing to redevelop the ageing Arncliffe Estate into a modern and vibrant mixed community of social housing tenants and private owners.
As part of the project, we will replace 142 ageing dwellings with 744 new residential units, Including 180 units for social housing tenants.
We’re also developing a 4,000 m2 public park, new shops and community facilities to revitalise the site.
The proposed units are energy and water efficient, and less expensive to maintain. All 180 social housing units are designed to at least Silver Level Livable Housing Design to better accommodate the needs of our contemporary tenants.
Former Arncliffe Estate residents who were moved out can return to new homes once the redevelopment is complete.
Emergency housing during COVID-19 pandemic
The NSW Government used the Arncliffe Estate site for emergency housing during the COVID-19 pandemic. We invested $1.5 million of the COVID-19 stimulus package to update electricity, kitchens and bathrooms in 140 units to provide relief housing from April 2020 until construction is expected to begin in February 2023.
