Inner city social and affordable homes for Newtown
SGCH has completed another stage under the NSW Government’s Social and Affordable Housing Fund (SAHF) Phase 2, delivering 21 residential apartments in Newtown.
SGCH Group CEO Scott Langford says “I am delighted that SGCH and our partners are delivering more homes in this high demand area that is centrally located to transport, education and employment.”
Located at 2-2a Gladstone Street, the modern and secure building features a mix of studios, one, two and three bedroom units. The brand new building will be available for people from the social housing waiting list and local key workers. Tenants pay affordable rents based on income and the area’s market rent.
In line with our commitment to environmental sustainability, the building has a 7-star rating under the Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS). It uses a range of energy efficient measures to provide a more sustainable building and whilst reducing household running costs for tenants.
As part of the NSW Governments SAHF program, all our customers in this new building will have access to wrap around support, with linkages to services, partner organisations and opportunities. Mr Langford continues,
“We have made a commitment to build more homes and focus on our customer needs. These homes in Newtown will provide safe and secure housing, with access to additional support as needed for all who live there.
“This focus on linking our customers to tailored support coordination services will deliver long and short-term benefits for individuals, families and ultimately our communities.”
