As a part of our Big Housing Build, we’re replacing the low-rise housing at South Yarra, Prahran, Hampton East and Port Melbourne.
All housing at Essex Street will be replaced with modern, energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable homes.
The project will transform these communities into well-connected and welcoming places with quality open spaces.
The new homes will include a mix of social, affordable and market rental homes, with disability accommodation, in a range of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes to better meet the needs of residents.
The supply of more homes will help tackle the growing problem of housing affordability and address the lack of secure, longer-term rentals in the local area.
