Project update

Our Dunlop Avenue, Ascot Vale project is now complete, delivering high quality, sustainable homes for Victorians who need them.

We've built 200 new social and affordable homes at Dunlop Avenue, Ascot Vale and created 890 jobs in the construction process. 

The newly created homes at Dunlop Avenue offer a range of housing solutions, helping us to deliver on our commitment to providing more homes for more Victorians.

Expertly designed, energy-efficient and equipped to meet tenants needs, these homes set new standards for social housing in Victoria.

The design is environmentally efficient. That means the homes are more comfortable, as well as less expensive, to heat and cool. They carry a 5-star Green Star rating and a 7-star NatHERS average rating.
