Project updates

NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) partnered with Newbuild Development (Australia) Pty Ltd to recently complete a two-storey, 10-unit apartment building for seniors and people with a disability, comprising six two-bedroom and four one-bedroom units.

Located close to public transport, the $3.44M development delivers a contemporary, high quality design complementing the surrounding low and medium density residential environment. It features fully enclosed private open spaces for all apartments, street frontages creating a safer public domain, five accessible ground level units which can be adapted to house wheelchair users, extensive landscaping and ground level car parking spaces.

This development has provided new, modern fit-for-purpose social housing for up to 16 residents.

This development is 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.

Around 17 jobs have been created as part of this project.
