Around 53 people in need will have a new fit-for-purpose home, with the completion of the NSW Land and Housing Corporation's (LAHC) $16.9 million social housing development in St Marys. The project also created approximately 84 jobs during construction.

LAHC developed the five-storey building on Phillip Street just eight minutes’ walk from St Marys Station and the future St Marys metro station, that will provide an efficient and accessible interchange and gateway to employment and community opportunities.

Our design and construction partner on the project was McGregor Westlake Architecture and Growthbuilt.

The architecturally designed building contains 23 one-bedroom and 21 two-bedroom units, with 20 car parking spaces at the basement level. These homes will help meet the strong local demand for smaller dwellings, including from local tenants currently living in properties with unused bedrooms.

The property features landscaped communal areas and incorporates environmental design features including solar power for common areas, a central rainwater tank for the gardens. It has a 7-star rating under the Commonwealth Government’s Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS).

The project also includes 2 lifts and 5 adaptable units for residents with mobility issues. All units have been built to the Livable Housing Australia guidelines.
