Project Updates: New property developments progressing well

16 Nov 2016

Access Housing currently has more than 110 new affordable homes under construction across seven project sites in the Perth metropolitan area and South West region. These new homes will tangibly increase the supply of affordable housing for a range of low to moderate income earners including seniors, people living with a disability, families and singles while also providing opportunities for investors and owner-occupiers.

baldivis2xAccess Housing’s Baldivis development, named Jervis Rise, consists of 51 apartments over three levels and is located in the Baldivis Town Centre precinct. This development comprises innovatively designed one and two bedroom units, with a number specifically designed to accommodate people with disabilities seeking affordable, accessible housing. There are a number of apartments that also have National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS) incentives available.

Construction is expected to be completed in mid-2017.

For more information about limited investment and owner-occupier opportunities within Jervis Rise, please contact Magna Realty on (08) 9430 0980. 

juliet2xAccess Housing’s latest Coolbellup development, located at 19 Juliet Road, consists of 16 two and three-bedroom apartments over two levels. The development includes several apartments designed to suit the needs of tenants living with a disability.

The development is situated within the popular The Playground estate, which features landscaped parklands and playgrounds and is ideally located close to schools, shops, public transport routes and Fremantle.

Project completion is expected in mid-2017.

Access Housing’s South West Ageing in Place Housing projects in Boyanup and Dardanup will deliver new and refurbished homes for seniors who wish to remain in their local South West communities as they grow older.

Fourteen new seniors homes are being built at Mitchell Way, Dardanup and another nine units are being built at Thomas Street, Boyanup. Three existing units at the Boyanup site are benefitting from modern refurbishments. Both developments are due for completion in mid-2017.

projects were made possible by a $4.87 million investment through the State Government’s Royalties for Regions program. Access Housing purchased the land and, together with project expenses, has invested $1.5 million into the projects.

Twelve of the 26 units will be made available for sale to local seniors, with sales proceeds used to fund another seniors housing project in the South West. Access Housing will retain 14 units for affordable rental purposes.

Local seniors can register their interest to purchase or rent one of the units by contacting Access Housing’s South West office on 9722 7200.

White Gum Valley
shac05xNot-for-profit organisation Sustainable Housing for Artists and Creatives (SHAC) approached Access Housing to assist them in providing affordable housing options to professional artists working in the Fremantle area who have been priced out of the local housing market. Access Housing agreed to develop the project, sell dwellings to any members who had the means to purchase a unit and manage the balance for a minimum of 10 years under the National Rental Affordability Scheme and normal tenancy management arrangements.

This project is unique because the design of the properties will specifically cater to the needs of a group of working artists. The development will contain three three-bedroom townhouses, eight two-bedroom units, one one-bedroom unit and one communal artist studio.

The SHAC development will form part of a diverse, modern, sustainable range of housing types and living options within LandCorp’s WGV estate that will include apartments, maisonettes and single homes. Access Housing and SHAC members have worked closely to create a living space that will meet the needs of the tenants and will also harmonise with the environmentally sustainable aims of the broader LandCorp estate, including self-sufficient solar energy capture and supply.

Project completion is scheduled for mid-2017.

lionfish-waikikixThis nine villa development includes two and three bedroom homes that meet Liveable Homes criteria. The Liveable Homes initiative was developed by the Disability Services Commission and the Housing Industry Association to increase the number of homes in WA that meet universal access requirements. Liveable Homes are contemporary, open plan homes that are designed to maximise space in key areas of the home and offer comfortable, easy living for people of all ages and abilities.

Construction is due for completion in mid-2017.

The development is within 2km of a local shopping centre and primary and high schools and has good public transport links into Fremantle.
