Vasey Communities gets go-ahead for $90 million vertical village on Sydney’s North Shore

Published on

The Not for Profit has received development approval for its 12-storey Kokoda Residences community in Waitara (pictured), 18km northwest of the Sydney CBD.

The 117 apartments will be built by Richard Crookes Constructions and Vasey Communities’ Chairman Kate Gunton says they “are confident the development will allow them to return a vibrant senior’s community to Waitara.”

As we covered here, Vasey had to take two residents of the existing 55-unit, 50-year-old village to the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT) in 2017 following a two-year battle to redevelop the ageing village.

Vasey has a long history of providing affordable accommodation and was originally established in 1959 to offer housing for war widows.

A launch event for the village will be held in March, with construction to commence next month.
