  • Nightingale Housing

Nightingale Village offers a world-first opportunity to understand the benefits of social and affordable tenancies within an owner occupier development. It features outstanding environmentally sustainable design, a development model delivering capped investor profit margins, low running costs for tenants and a community atmosphere promoting social and economic inclusion.

The Village is a collection of six neighbouring buildings, each designed by six award-winning architects using the social, environmental and financial sustainability principles of the carbon-neutral Nightingale model. Nightingale Village brings together 186 apartments, precinct scale transport hubs (500+ bike parking spaces) and sustainability solutions.

Nightingale Village benefits from proximity to the CBD, multiple public transport options and access to local schools, community groups, and parks. This development provides high-quality housing in a desirable location that has seen significant property price increases – well out of reach of social and affordable housing tenants.

Housing Choices has purchased 21 dwellings across all buildings. Residents will be selected from the Victorian Housing Register and include singles, couples and families on low incomes, and people with a disability.
