We have completed 8 new social housing units on Macarthur Street in.

For the project, we transformed 2 ageing fibro houses into a contemporary 2-storey development made up of 1- and 2-bedroom units, with ample parking.

The complex is opposite Cook Park and close to public transport, shops and the Newcastle CBD. It was designed with 3 separate front facades, giving the appearance of detached homes so that it blends with the neighbourhood.
