The supply of new homes will help tackle housing affordability and provide safe, secure accommodation for people who need it.
On this page

We’re building 359 new homes that are modern, well-designed and energy efficient including 240 social and 119 affordable homes with 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes.

This is a 21% uplift in social housing at the site. The redevelopment of the Victoria Street site also includes green spaces, pathways and communal areas for residents and the local community to use and enjoy.

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 housing options in the local area. Feedback from the Moonee Valley community has helped shape the design and delivery of this project, and we would like to thank residents for their ongoing support. 

Construction will be finished by early 2024 and we will welcome residents into their new homes soon after.
