Federal Treasurer, Scott Morrison, has opened The Gardens, a new affordable housing development by BlueCHP in Campbelltown.
BlueCHP is proud of the Gardens because it helps people in need find stable and affordable accommodation.
The Gardens is a great example of how Community Housing Providers can support the Federal Government’s plans to increase the supply of affordable housing.
BlueCHP has led the building industry by using Cross Laminated Timber, a cost effective and environmentally sustainable construction technology.
The Gardens comprises 101 apartments, consisting of 1, 2, and 3 bedrooms, over three towers Acacia, Camellia and Magnolia.
Of the 101 apartments, 56 dwellings will be made available for affordable rental and the remaining 45 dwellings will be sold.
The Gardens is located in a highly sought-after location in the Campbelltown City region, in close proximity to the University of Western Sydney, shopping at Macarthur Square and Macarthur Railway Station.
It is the largest residential timber building in Australia, having been built with Cross Laminated Timber.
All apartments have been built to a high standard and units have been designed to maximise natural light and ventilation.
All units have a security system, while connection to high speed broadband is provided, along with onsite parking.
BlueCHP is proud to have received a commendation at the 2017 UDIA awards for The Gardens and also by the Australian Housing Institute – NSW Leading Housing Development Project Winner 2017.
