Pacific Link Housing, a Central Coast based Community Housing Provider, has completed a brand new mixed tenure development at Glendale.
The modern 21-unit development named “Pacific Gateway”, includes a mix of social, affordable and private housing homes and is located near the regional Glendale shopping centre, local schools and the proposed future site of the Glendale Station.
The project will accommodate around 45 residents in total and two of the ground floor units are adaptable for tenants with disabilities.
Minister for Water, Property and Housing, Melinda Pavey, said the NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) had been working with Pacific Link Housing to transform a vacant lot into 21 modern, fit-for-purpose dwellings, including six social housing units.
Pacific Gateway provides high quality and stable housing to social housing tenants and to those tenants eligible for the affordable housing scheme. Through its design, location and completion, this project has the possibility of providing many positive outcomes for residents.
“The Glendale project is another example of the Government replacing ageing social homes with high quality, immaculately designed homes. By partnering with Pacific Link Housing, we’ve been able to double the number of social dwellings on-site while also delivering new private homes,” Mrs Pavey said.
Pacific Link Housing is a leading Tier 1 Community Housing Provider managing close to 1,100 properties across the Lake Macquarie, Central Coast, Newcastle and Hunter regions.
‘’Pacific Link is proud to be the first to complete a Communities Plus Project and we are extremely pleased with the outcome’’, Ian Lynch, CEO of Pacific Link Housing said.
The NSW Government is currently undertaking the biggest social housing renewal program in the country, delivering more and better housing for tenants and NSW families on the waiting list.
The Glendale project is part of the NSW Government’s Communities Plus program, which is redeveloping the social housing portfolio across metropolitan Sydney and regional NSW through innovative partnerships with the private and not-for-profit sectors including community housing providers.
