Pacific Link Housing is proud to announce the completion of its latest development, Pacific Lakes, located in Canton Beach NSW. Completed in June 2024, this two-storey complex comprises 14 units, offering a mix of social, affordable and market-rate rental units.

The development received $1.92 million in grant funding under the NSW Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) program known as the Community Housing Innovation Fund (CHIF) which will ensure six units will be used for social housing allocations, addressing the critical need for more affordable housing on the Central Coast.

Wal Edgell, Chairman of Pacific Link Housing, expressed gratitude for the government’s continued support, which is vital to their mission of providing safe, secure and affordable homes for those in need in our communities.

“This generous support from the government is the key to our ability to continue to deliver quality new affordable housing in perpetuity for Central Coast residents. It not only supports our mission as a community housing provider but directly helps individuals and families establish a stable and dignified place to call home and feel supported by members of our community.”

All apartments in Pacific Lakes are architecturally designed, featuring private terraces and courtyards on the ground floor and balconies on the upper floor. The complex was constructed by Skope Constructions and offers a high standard of living for its residents.

David Harris, Minister for the Central Coast, said:

“I look forward to seeing tenants move into these high-quality apartments that provide not only safe and secure housing but also homes that tenants can be proud of. The Minns Government continues to fund the development of new housing by community housing providers like Pacific Link Housing who support their tenants and communities to thrive.“

Ian Lynch, CEO of Pacific Link Housing, said that the latest delivery evidences once again, the quality of delivery Pacific Link Housing is capable of, and the trusted set of hands that Governments can rely on.

“With the number of people in rental stress on the Central Coast rising, it’s more important than ever that we continue to provide safe, secure and affordable housing options. Pacific Lakes is a significant addition to Pacific Link Housing’s portfolio of mixed tenancy developments which are designed to meet the diverse housing needs of our community.”

Adam Crouch, Member for Terrigal, said:

“I was thrilled to stand on this ground before construction commenced to announce this funding, which was made available by the previous Liberal National Government. Pacific Link Housing should be commended for another on-time, on-budget delivery in partnership with the NSW Government.“

Pacific Link Housing’s ongoing commitment to development is evident in its extensive mixed-tenancy development pipeline, with a further 80 units currently at various stages of progress.

Pacific Lakes is a prime example of Pacific Link Housing’s dedication to providing high-quality, affordable housing solutions that contribute to thriving and inclusive communities.
