Housing Choices Australia’s Queen Victoria Market residential development provides architect-designed, environmentally sustainable social housing homes, delivered through a community housing model that supports residents and builds links with community.

The project is funded through Housing Choices Australia debt, which has been enabled through the Victorian Government’s Building Financial Capacity of Housing Agencies low-interest loan program and the Social Housing Growth Fund – Build and Operate Program.

Designed by award-winning architects Six Degrees and Tract Consultants Landscape Architects, the property comprises 49 dwellings across five levels, including NDIS-approved Specialist Disability Accommodation. The building is located within a complex that includes council offices, community spaces and a retail/commercial space.

Across the road from the Queen Victoria Market, the apartments are close to a range of shops and amenities, public transport, as well as schools and hospitals. Residents are drawn from the Victorian Housing Register. Under the terms of the funding arrangement with the State government, Housing Choices will deliver tenancy and property management services for the building and its residential community, as well as community-building initiatives, for 30 years.
