The Merchant was the first social housing development at Docklands, which is one of the largest redevelopment areas in Australia. Docklands will account for 38 per cent of all inner city residential growth over the next two decades. It is estimated that Docklands will generate around 30,000 jobs. As many of these will continue to be in the hospitality, retail and service sectors, this would indicate that demand for affordable housing will rise commensurately.
