FMSA has been engaged by Port Phillip Housing Association (PPHA) to provide architectural services for the $50 million Ashwood Chadstone Housing Development.
The redevelopment is based on a partnership between government, funded under The Strategy for Growth for Low Income Victorians, and the PPHA, an independent, not for profit registered Housing Association. The project will deliver a new model of integrated private and community housing units that will rejuvenate the Ashwood and Chadstone area with affordable housing choices that cater for a mix of families, singles and elderly Victorians.
The project aims to provide a minimum of 227 dwellings, including a minimum of 207 affordable dwellings over six sites. The buildings will all incorporate sustainable design features to address water and waste management, solar access and energy saving initiatives.
