More than 40 new homes will be delivered at Warwick Farm as part of the NSW Government’s ongoing commitment to social housing in Western Sydney.
Minister for Water, Property and Housing Melinda Pavey said the $16 million project at Mannix Parade will deliver 21 one-bedroom and 22 two-bedroom units.
“This project is one of 90 delivered by the NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) to replace ageing houses and under-utilised sites and re-develop them into small to medium-scale apartment buildings and duplexes,” Mrs Pavey said.
“At Warwick Farm we will transform two vacant properties into a modern, accessible, multi-storey residential building for social housing, which is close to transport and essential services.
“The construction itself will create 80 jobs providing income to local tradies and labourers, not to mention suppliers, who will spend it in their communities.”
The NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) is working to deliver more than 100 projects in Western and South-Western Sydney which would see 17,000 new homes built including 5,000 dedicated to social housing.
This project supports the NSW Government’s commitment to re-ignite the construction industry with plans for $6.7 billion worth of housing projects in Western Sydney.
“This pipeline which includes the renewal of social housing estates at Airds-Bradbury, Claymore and Bonnyrigg, and major mixed tenure renewal projects in construction at Lidcombe, Liverpool, Westmead and South Granville have the potential to support an estimated 33,000 construction jobs over the duration of their development,” Mrs Pavey said.
“These projects across Western and South Western Sydney are not only stimulating the state’s economy, they are providing people a place to call home in the areas that need it most.
“We must continue to review the state’s social housing portfolio, and where there are opportunities to create more homes for people in need, the community can rightfully expect us to do that, and this pipeline is about meeting that expectation.”
Construction at Warwick Farm is set for completion in September 2022, for more information please visit https://www.dpie.nsw.gov.au/land-and-housing-corporation/greater-sydney/mannix-parade,-warwick-farm.
