Abbotsford Housing Redevelopment

Affordable Housing

The Redevelopment housing in Abbotsford provides 48 new low-rise one and two bedroom apartments in the inner west for elderly tenants. All completed dwellings accommodate people living with disabilities, seniors and people living with carers, in full compliance with the State Environmental Planning Policy (SEPP), including adaptable and wheelchair accessible apartments. In addition, the housing units’ design was intended to provide comfortable living, while minimising ongoing maintenance costs, as well as satisfying Housing NSW’s commitment to ecologically sustainable developments (ESD). In this regard, ceiling fans for all units, rainwater tanks to collect water for recycling, solar panels to supply power to all common area demands and winter gardens outside various buildings to assist ventilation have been incorporated into the project.
