30 Ha

Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) is renewing Riverwood estate to create a safe, active and integrated community with modern housing benefiting from excellent access to transport, services and open spaces.

First stage (completed)

The first stage of redevelopment at Riverwood, Washington Park, was completed in 2018 and delivered 150 new social housing dwellings mixed with private housing.

Washington Park demonstrates what can be achieved through redeveloping a concentrated social housing estate into a diverse and connected community.

Next steps

The remaining 30 hectares of the Riverwood Estate renewal is being planned as a State Significant Precinct. The redevelopment has the potential for capital investment of over $2 billion and the creation of 11,000 jobs.

As a State Significant Precinct, a detailed study of the area is being undertaken to identify the new local community’s needs for all types of housing, along with improved infrastructure, amenities and services. The study will build on the extensive consultation undertaken with residents, the broader community and other stakeholders since 2017.

Renewal of the estate will increase housing supply, diversity and affordability in the area, and facilitate renewal of ageing social housing with fit-for-purpose, new modern social housing and private housing within an integrated community.

The new environment will feature extensive open spaces, well laid-out streets and footpaths, landscaping, community facilities and services, along with local retail shops to support the current and future needs of the community.

The Riverwood Estate renewal is a long-term project and will take place in stages over a period of 15-20 years.
