More than a job: Graduates find meaningful employment building Flemington homes

Our Victoria Street, Flemington social housing project isn't just delivering 359 new social and affordable homes for Victorian’s who need them most - it's also produced more than 600 jobs for Victorian workers, including Program Graduate roles.

These roles allow graduates who are just starting out in their careers in the construction industry to gain valuable experience working on large projects.

Watch the video below to hear firsthand from some of the grads what’s it been like working on the project and what it means to them.

About the project

The homes will be delivered through a Ground Lease Model – a first of its kind in Victoria. As part of the model, Homes Victoria will lease the land to not-for-profit project partner Building Communities to redevelop and then manage and maintain the new homes for the next 30 years, before returning them to the state government. This enables all land to remain in public ownership.

The site will feature modern, energy-efficient apartments and publicly accessible green spaces. Construction will be finished by early 2024.
