We’re delivering new social and affordable housing at Emerald Hill, South Melbourne with an integrated community health facility to provide the very best care for the community.
The Emerald Hill health and housing precinct will provide a substantial housing upgrade with at least 70 well-designed, modern homes, improved open spaces and a health facility to support residents and the broader surrounding community.
The Emerald Hill Community Hospital, operated by Alfred Health in partnership with Star Health, will provide a range of health services tailored to the community.
The project will be delivered jointly by Homes Victoria and the Victorian Health Building Authority.
The existing Emerald Hill precinct includes two sites, located on Dorcas, Coventry, and Moray Streets in South Melbourne.
A master planning process is underway to help shape potential future development stages and other improvements at the site.
Construction is expected to start in mid-2023 and be completed by mid-2025

We’re replacing 3 of the older, low-rise buildings at Emerald Hill with modern, energy efficient and environmentally sustainable homes.
The community hospital with provide a range of every-day health services tailored to the needs of the community including: general practice, women’s health and mental health services.
The project will see an increase in the number of homes helping to accommodate more Victorians as part of our Big Housing Build, while also creating over 1000 jobs.
We’re currently asking for feedback from the community to help inform the Emerald Hill Master Plan and the health and housing precinct which will deliver new homes and a community hospital.
The master plan will focus on improvements including new housing, ground-floor uses which respond to local needs, improved connections around the site, and better green and shared spaces.
