Evolve Housing is continually working to improve existing properties, and to grow our portfolio of properties to best support the community we serve. Some of our current projects underway include:
Merewether Street, Newcastle
This project extends Evolve Housing’s portfolio into the Newcastle CBD, delivering 30 new apartments for affordable tenants, with indoor and multiple rooftop terraces for communal use. Additionally, there will be three new commercial spaces which complement the public spaces created on the old rail line. Four of the apartments will be accessible and SDA registered. Due for completion mid 2020, we have already received expressions of interest in the property.
Kantara Road, Canton Beach
This project will deliver 30 fully furnished studio apartments for social and affordable tenants; two of these are accessible, with 3 adaptable for people with disability. This project is our third partnership with Pacific Link Housing and is nearing completion, due mid 2020. Pacific Link Housing will manage the tenancies.
King Georges Road, Roselands
This project was completed early 2019 and was undertaken in partnership with Pacific Link Housing. It has delivered 26 fully furnished studio apartments for social and affordable tenants including two that are accessible, and eight are adaptable so that they can be modified in the future for people with disability. The development includes both indoor and outdoor communal facilities. Evolve Housing is managing the tenancies.
Clyde Street, Guildford
This project delivers 23 apartments for social and affordable tenants, including four that are accessible for people with disability. This innovative development used off-site modular construction with completed apartment modules craned into position. It also integrated transformational furniture, including fold-down beds, to improve spatial amenity for tenants. Completed late 2018, this project is part of our vesting commitment to the NSW Government.
Harts Landing, Penrith
This project delivers 268 social, affordable and private dwellings.
Developed alongside private developer, PAYCE, Harts Landing will also house a social enterprise and our private realty business Echo Realty office to manage our (and other) rental properties.
Evolve retains and manages 10 social and 114 affordable housing units; the Aboriginal Housing Office have purchased 10 units, with Evolve managing the affordable tenancies; and the remaining 134 units have been sold as private dwellings. All apartments are built to the same quality and standard and all residents have equal access to shared facilities.
Talia on Chambers, Woy Woy
Chambers Place is a development of 31 fully furnished apartments for social and affordable tenants, including two that are accessible, and eight that are adaptable for people with disability. Completed in early 2017, the project also includes indoor and rooftop terrace communal spaces.. We are particularly proud of this development as it is the first affordable housing development in Woy Woy. The project was the first developed through Evolve Pacific Developments, a partnership between Evolve Housing and Pacific Link Housing in Gosford. Our partner Pacific Link Housing is managing the tenancies.
