Social housing boost as new homes to be delivered in Hamilton Hill

  • Cook Government delivering more social housing in Perth’s southern suburbs
  • Nineteen new social homes for the most vulnerable members of community
  • Use of modern construction methods to reduce waste and carbon footprint

The Cook Labor Government continues to boost social housing throughout Western Australia with 19 new social homes to be delivered in the south metropolitan suburb of Hamilton Hill.

Seven INKA-constructed three-bedroom, two-bathroom two-storey family town homes on Kwenda Approach will be made available to families on the public housing waitlist.

These large three-bedroom, two-bathroom properties have been built to Silver Level Livable Standard. The homes are close to established amenities, shops and schools, and within easy access of bus routes on major road networks.

Further to these seven new social homes, construction of 12 new one- and two-bedroom social homes on Karda Way commenced in January 2024. These new homes are being constructed by Dale Alcock Projects and are being built using timber-framed offsite construction methods achieving 7.5-star NatHERS energy efficiency ratings.

Each dwelling will achieve Silver Level Livable Homes, ensuring suitability for ageing in place and adaptability for people with disabilities. All homes include waterwise gardens and solar energy systems.

Upon completion, the 11.9-hectare OneOneFive Hamilton Hill will deliver approximately 232 lots and more than 330 new homes for up to 800 residents.

As stated by Lands and Housing Minister John Carey:

“Since our record $2.6 billion investment in housing and homelessness measures, we’ve added more than 2,000 social homes, with a further 1,000 social homes under contract or construction.

“Importantly, the first seven new social homes constructed by INKA are three-bedroom, two-bathroom homes and will provide housing to families on the public housing waitlist.

“A further 12 new, one- and two-bedroom timber frame social homes are also currently under construction.

“We’re doing everything we can to bolster the supply of housing throughout Western Australia – particularly for those who need it the most.”

As stated by Fremantle MLA Simone McGurk:

“OneOneFive Hamilton Hill is an exciting development that is bringing housing diversity and choice to Fremantle – including for the most vulnerable members of our community.

“The Cook Government is boosting housing supply throughout Western Australia – and I’m proud to see more housing delivered in my electorate of Fremantle.

“The OneOneFive development in Hamilton Hill also recognises the site’s history as a school, and its Indigenous heritage, through street names, public art, and built form.

“The development showcases what can be achieved with modern planning, sustainable objectives and local involvement in the process. Congratulations to everyone involved.”
