This two storey development features six 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom apartments for over 55s within the Fremantle region, which is a high demand area for social and affordable housing.
Access Housing is retaining each of the homes for affordable rental purposes to assist low-moderate income earning seniors who cannot afford the private rental market. Through this provision of affordable housing, Access Housing is pleased to be able to help relieve the financial strain on the handful of seniors who will be able to call one of these apartments ‘home’.

Named Jervis Rise, it is the first medium density housing development around the Baldivis town centre. The project has introduced upscale and affordable apartment living into an area that is typically characterised by single homes and caters to people seeking housing traditionally enjoyed by residents of inner-city areas.
Being located within a suburb that is predominantly comprised of traditional housing and house and land packages, Jervis Rise represents a significant, socially responsible shift in housing in the Baldivis area, increasing much-desired urban infill and offering a welcomed residential diversity. It also offers views over Tamworth Reserve and is in close proximity to a range of shops, schools, parks, public transport and other amenity services.
Access Housing has retained 12 of the apartments, including the accessible apartments, for affordable rental purposes.

White Gum Valley
Access Housing’s development within LandCorp’s WGV estate forms part of a diverse range of housing types and living options focussing on modern, sustainable design.
This project is unique because the 12 residential properties will specifically cater to the needs of a group of professional artists working in the Fremantle area who have been priced out of the local housing market.
Residents at the development are all part of the not-for-profit Sustainable Housing for Artists and Creatives (SHAC) cooperative, which approached Access Housing several years ago to help them provide affordable housing options to their members. 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.
The development contains three 3-bedroom townhouses, eight 2-bedroom units, one 1-bedroom unit and two communal artist studios.
The building has been fitted with solar panels and solar batteries, allowing for collected and stored solar energy to be used as the primary electrical source for each of the residential dwellings and the studio. As a result, the SHAC development is one of the first strata residential properties in Australia to offer residents strata community-based solar energy capture, storage and shared usage infrastructure.
In addition to being property developer and owner, Access Housing will take responsibility for the development’s electricity administration. This will see Access Housing essentially become an energy retailer to the property, offering tenants reduced price electricity.
The SHAC development is one of several strata developments within the WGV estate to benefit from solar power infrastructure, which will allow for significant electricity bill savings to residents as they will not be solely reliant on the electrical grid.
