The NSW Government has completed a new 10-unit project for vulnerable Wagga Wagga seniors, located adjacent to the popular Duke of Kent Park and close to local amenities, public transport and health services.
The $3.12 million development on South Parade created 16 jobs for local tradespeople while delivering a modern, high quality apartment complex.
Designed by a Wagga Wagga based architect, it remains consistent with the residential character of its neighbourhood with traditional housing features such as pitched roofs, covered entries and verandahs.
The development includes eight one-bedroom units and two two-bedroom units, with parking and landscaping. It is around 300m from regular bus services, 350 metres from the city’s hospital and 1.3 km from Wagga Wagga train station and the city centre.
Minister for Water, Property and Housing, Melinda Pavey said the development is an example how the NSW Government is building a safer and stronger regional NSW.
“We are getting shovels in the ground across regional NSW, creating critically important jobs while delivering new fit-for-purpose homes for disadvantaged and vulnerable people,” Mrs Pavey said.
The housing renewals form part of the NSW Government’s Future Directions for Social Housing, a plan to build more and better social housing that blends-in with local communities. https://www.dpie.nsw.gov.au/land-and-housing-corporation/
