The WGV estate is home to one of Access Housing’s multi-unit property developments, which will accommodate members of the ‘Sustainable Housing for Artists and Creatives’ (SHAC) cooperative upon completion next year. The SHAC development will contain three three-bedroom townhouses, eight two-bedroom units, one one-bedroom unit and one communal artist studio and will form part of a diverse range of housing types and living options within the estate.

Access Housing has worked with SHAC members to design and create a living space that will meet the needs of the tenants while also harmonising with the environmentally sustainable aims of the broader estate.

WGV is Western Australia’s first residential precinct endorsed as a One Planet Community by international sustainability charity Bioregional. Partnerships with the community, Curtin University and Local, State and Commonwealth Government agencies have seen barriers removed for a series of innovations, including home solar energy storage and a sustainable community bore.

The Playground at Coolbellup is a leading example of a sustainable small residential urban infill project in Western Australia with one hectare of Public Open Space, 54 residential lots and two grouped housing sites. Access Housing is currently well advanced in constructing 16 apartments on one of the grouped housing sites within the estate, which will provide a range of affordable homes for owner occupiers, investors and tenants, including those living with a disability requiring accessible accommodation.

The Playground at Coolbellup is delivering a new vibrant urban community, seamlessly transitioning with the existing community of Coolbellup whilst addressing increased demand from residents for affordable housing choices in the Coolbellup area.
