Project updates

Construction is now underway and works will continue until early 2022. Project Coordination (Australia) Pty Ltd is the construction partner on this project.

Around 35 jobs will be created as part of this project.

This development is one of about 50 projects being delivered under the NSW Government’s $400 million Fast-Track Housing Construction Package, to help boost economic recovery from COVID-19 in local communities throughout the state.

The site at 38 Mary Street and 19-25 Hume Street, Goulburn is located within walking distance to schools and 2km of the Goulburn town centre.

NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) is redeveloping five adjoining lots into a two-storey residential apartment building for social housing, which is permitted by the site's general residential zoning.

The development was approved by the Department of Planning Industry and Environment on 26 June 2020.

The development will have 20 social housing units configured as 12 one-bedroom units and eight two-bedroom units, as well as 14 car parking spaces.

The development design also includes mature landscaping with common and private open spaces.

Two discrete and separate low rise apartment buildings will be built across the site. This design will lessen the visual impact of the buildings from the street and help integrate the development into the low density neighbourhood.

The design will also consolidate five existing driveways into two, comprising one central driveway and a single driveway to an accessible unit.

The site has a significant 19m English Oak tree, which will be retained and incorporated into the landscaping design as a focal point. An inviting communal open space will be created around the tree for residents and visitors to enjoy.
