REDFERN: Housing – We have been very excited to the see the apartments and the gym space finally revealed as the external facades have been completed and the scaffolding has come down. Our affordable housing comprised of 26 apartments and 36 townhouses has been making great strides.
The townhouses are progressing with ongoing bricklaying and on the Eveleigh Street side the roofing will be commencing this month. Final stages of the internal walls of the townhouses are being completed.
Student Accommodation – The Col James student accommodation will also be unveiling itself over the next few weeks. The structure of the building will be finished in August as the two top levels are due for completion. External panelling installation is continuing and internal fit out is ongoing with walls and bathrooms being carried out level by level.
The colour scheme of the whole “Pemulwuy Project” encompasses tones from nature such as green, ochre, grey and brown. Elements from the past and present are incorporated, including the geological and natural landscape, and the current context of an inner-city setting like Redfern.
We are looking forward to moving 62 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families into their new homes before the end of this year.
