The development will provide safe, secure, quality affordable rental housing for 74 households. Around a third of these will be dedicated to women and children escaping domestic and family violence.
The project has been designed specifically for long-term rental with a focus on residents' cost of living and amenity through the incorporation of passive design principles to improve resident comfort and reduce energy costs.
Well-designed affordable housing shapes the quality of life for residents. One of our key design drivers of Boronia Apartments was the idea of 'blind tenure' - meaning the development looks no different to other types of housing.
