By September 1, 2021 No Comments

Unity Housing has completed the first stage of our $45 million development program which will see new social and affordable housing rolled out across the Adelaide metro area over the next three years, with 32 houses to be completed by Christmas.

In this first phase, 13 properties have been completed including seven in Buccleuch Avenue, Findon, comprising one 2-bedroom and six 3-bedroom townhouses (pictured below).

In our first major project completion since the onset of COVID-19, Unity Housing has completed development on this site valued at $2.7 million which will be put on the market for affordable rental.

All dwellings have been certified at Livable Housing Australia Silver Level, NDIS improved liveability to accommodate tenants living with disability. The entire site has been landscaped with drought tolerant native plant selections and mulch to maximise water sustainability and minimise the requirement for maintenance. Each townhouse has been fitted with reverse-cycle air conditioning and will be fitted with 3.7kW solar power system to minimise tenant energy costs.

The Findon project forms part of Unity Housing’s development program to deliver 148 outcomes by 2024, comprising 62 social housing, 43 affordable housing and 43 sales to market. The program includes development in Bordertown and a $30 million mixed residential development at Henley Beach, announced jointly by Unity Housing and the SA Housing Authority in 2020.

Speaking about the Findon project completion, Unity Housing CEO, Matthew Woodward, commented on the importance of this milestone moment: “We have an ambitious plan to scale our affordable housing provision to an even wider range of communities in Metropolitan Adelaide and beyond. The completion of the first development in Findon is an important milestone in that plan and Unity Housing looks forward to delivering a further 19 new affordable homes by Christmas and 48 in 2022.”
