Stage two of Carlton housing redevelopment opens to public
Melburnians on the hunt for residential property may be interested in the multimillion-dollar Carlton housing project underway in the city.
Announcing the opening of stage two of the development last week (November 30), state minister for housing Wendy Lovell said the estate boasts public and private real estate accommodation options.
"The project covers a vital area of Carlton, spanning 7.5 hectares over three sites at Lygon and Rathdowne Streets, Keppel and Cardigan Streets and Elgin and Nicholson Streets," Ms Lovell commented.
"Once it's complete, the nine stage project will have replaced 192 ageing public housing apartments with 246 new public and community housing units and approximately 750 new privately owned units."
The estate, which is the one of Victoria's largest public housing developments, is likely to attract the interest of both renters and house hunters looking for affordable real estate options.
The newly completed stage two comprises 98 private and 50 publicly-owned homes in three buildings on Keppel and Cardigan streets.
Member for northern metropolitan region Craig Ondarchie said the housing project is a major boon for Melbourne.
He explained: "The mix of private and public residents here in Carlton is a prime example of how we can create diverse, welcoming, inclusive communities on our housing estates."
