Victoria Street, Flemington

Project update

The Victoria Street housing development is now complete and providing high quality social and affordable homes for the Flemington community.

The builder ICON finished construction in early 2024 and residents are settling into their new homes, including residents who lived at Victoria Street prior to its redevelopment that we are thrilled to welcome back.

Homes Victoria will continue to own the land at Victoria Street, Flemington, but the site will be managed for the next 40-years by community housing provider, Community Housing Limited (CHL). CHL has an office at the site and will deliver tenancy management services, community building programs, on-site maintenance and more. This will ensure Victoria Street residents feel part of a strong, connected community for many years to come.

If you’re in the neighbourhood, keep a look out for regular news updates from CHL about what’s happening at the site.

About the project 

The Victoria Street housing site was redeveloped to replace older style housing with 359 new homes that are bright, modern and energy efficient.

There are also new quality outdoor spaces with gardens, a community pavilion and pedestrian and cycling pathways to complement the local area.

The new 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes are a mix of 240 social and 119 affordable homes bringing a 21% uplift in social housing at the site.

Delivered through a first-of-its kind Ground Lease Model, Homes Victoria is leasing the land to not-for-profit project partner Building Communities to manage and maintain for the next 40 years, enabling all land to remain in public ownership.

Projects like this are helping to tackle housing affordability by delivering more secure rental housing options in the local area.
