This exciting project converts an old service station site into an environmentally friendly and socially conscious gateway to the Balfe Park Precinct.

Nightingale Housing is a not-for-profit social enterprise that exists to support, promote and advocate for high-quality housing that is ecologically, socially, financially sustainable.

The Development

The development comprises a 6-storey, mixed-use development (plus basement) accommodating shops, café, 66 dwellings and associated car parking.

Site Characteristics

Whilst effectively one attached building, the development has been split into two parts.

The portion of the building fronting Nicholson Street contains ground level commercial/retail uses and 38 apartments above. The 38 dwellings were designed to be a Nightingale Housing development with the 28 Miller Street apartments being a ‘typical’ apartment. However, there is nothing typical about this development, which achieves a 7.5 NatHERS rating.

Nightingale Housing requires the developments be 100% fossil fuel-free and have capped and transparent project profits which create an ability to provide housing at below-market cost.

The development provides a positive contribution to the neighbourhood and promotes social sustainability by integrating social connection and community management.

Both buildings have extensive internal amenities with no borrowed light or saddleback apartments, ample private and communal open space and a communal laundry on the roof of the Nicholson Street building.

Our team is proud to have been involved with this project.
