New affordable housing options


The new ‘Flexi-living Homes’ in the fast-growing suburb of Strathnairn are now open for ballot registrations and are boosting the supply of affordable housing in the ACT.

Thirty-seven homes are on offer, and all include a wide range of low maintenance, architect designed floor plans and the freedoms of a separate title.

Ginninderry project director, Stephen Harding, said the project’s vision is to provide diversity of innovative housing and to adopt the foremost design practices.

“Our goal is to offer a mix of really exciting and innovative housing types that will facilitate a broad range of lifestyles for individuals and families. People from all ages and stages of life, and with different budgets and lifestyle aspirations, are accommodated at Ginninderry, making for a vibrant and interesting community,” Mr Harding said.

“This release includes 37 homes with a choice of 11 designs across one, two and three bedroom options, including some new accessible designs.”

The eligibility criteria is designed to accommodate first-home buyers to ensure they are not locked out of the ‘Flexi-living Homes’ market.

“Flexi-living Homes are designed to allow more people to move into home ownership so a range of eligibility criteria, including income thresholds, applies and we encourage people to check their eligibility on the website,” Mr Harding said.

Located close to Paddy’s Park and public transport, the homes share garaging between street and land frontages, are set a lower price point with reduced maintenance and operation costs, and are designed to maximise space.

Prices are set to start at $323,900 and ballot registrations close on Friday 22 October.
