BaptistCare’s Carlingford community housing project reaches halfway point

Published on

A 162-unit social and affordable housing project in the Sydney suburb of Carlingford, operated by BaptistCare and built by Lendlease, has completed its structural phase.

The development – which will provide community housing to seniors and single-parent families – is part of the NSW Government’s Social and Affordable Housing Fund.

According to BaptistCare, access to safe, stable and affordable housing is difficult for families, especially in the wake of the pandemic and recent natural disasters.

“Once complete, the housing at Carlingford will see BaptistCare owning and operating more than 650 community housing residences over 13 locations across NSW.

“We need more housing like this right across the country, and we hope to see all levels of Government investing more in this vital sector,” the operator said.

The development was announced last year, and will devote 60% of its units to seniors.
