Project update

We're building 200 new social and affordable homes at Dunlop Avenue, Ascot Vale and creating 890 jobs.

The redevelopment site at 24 to 42 Dunlop Avenue, Ascot Vale will offer increased housing opportunities for more Victorians than ever before, with a range of housing solutions being delivered.

A planning permit for the 200 dwellings was issued by Moonee Valley City Council on 21 January 2020.

The project will provide an opportunity to showcase good housing design, aiming to enhance the confidence of local residents and the community for any future redevelopment of the broader Ascot Vale development.

We're responding to the changing needs of households in Victoria. The redevelopment will include a range of dwellings including 1, 2 and 3 bedroom homes.

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