The Not For Profit is putting the finishing touches on a 220-unit retirement village in Minto, 55km southwest of the Sydney CBD.
The $130.5 million project will see 110 of these units delivered as part of the NSW Government’s Social and Affordable Housing Fund (SAHF) program.
NSW Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services Gareth Ward said the development will add to a growing supply of social housing state-wide and focus on single older women.
“Minto Village will be a lively and dynamic community for older people in South Western Sydney, providing a safe place to call home,” he said.
Commercial builder Hansen Yuncken has reportedly been working with Anglicare on the build, and stage one is expected to be completed by July 2021.
Anglicare CEO Grant Millard said the operator welcomed the partnership it had developed with the State Government through the SAHF program.
“What we’re doing here is creating a strong community where everyone’s lives are enriched,” he said.
