Pemulwuy – hands up to live there!

REDFERN: As promised the Aboriginal Housing Company is about to deliver affordable housing for our people first in the Pemulwuy Project.

Our wonderful new housing will be ready by the end of the year and we encourage any Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to apply for an apartment or townhouse through our website. Please read through our eligibility criteria before submitting any applications online.

Our dream has always been to create a positive future for the next generation that starts with housing. Children will have the chance to grow up at Pemulwuy, in a proud, strong and safe urban community.

The Pemulwuy Project is about giving our future generation a hand up, not a hand out. We want to give Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people the opportunity to live at Pemulwuy with modern housing that is culturally appropriate, centred around the core values of family and community.

“We have always had faith that this vision for our people was going to happen, it was just a matter of when,” says Michael Mundine, CEO, Aboriginal Housing Company Ltd.

The affordable housing consists of 26 generously sized apartments and 36 large townhouses. Internal fit-outs in the apartments are being finished level by level this month, with carpets being laid and fixtures being completed. Construction of the townhouses is in progress and, as each week passes, they are also making great headway.
