Meanwhile, construction is underway for a mixed-tenure complex at Peakhurst, which will see six ageing properties transformed into 72 units, 37 of which to be used for social housing.
The $22 million complex on Forest Road, Peakhurst will feature 13 one-bedroom, 21 two-bedroom and three, three-bedroom social housing units. Close to essential services, parks and transport, the development is set to be complete by mid-2023.
Ms Brill said the projects also signalled a boost for local tradies and suppliers.
“Construction of these homes is providing a steady pipeline of work across Southern Sydney for local trades and apprentices, with more than 130 jobs created during the builds,” Ms Brill said.
“And our recent commitment of $183 million towards more social housing shows we’re firmly focused on fast-tracking the delivery of more homes for people in need.”
