construction update

Construction is nearly complete on new apartments in Bundoora. WPI will be able to offer 10 apartments in this development to women and children, early in 2021. The apartments are conveniently located and offer excellent access to services.

Construction at Nightingale Village is also moving swiftly. We will offer nine apartments across two of the buildings in this development in late 2021. These will be affordable, sustainable, community-focused homes for women at risk of homelessness. Nightingale Village is a collection of six neighbouring buildings, each designed by a different, award-winning architect using the social, environmental, and financial sustainability principles of the Nightingale model.

Our purchase of the Lunar and Nightingale Village apartments was made possible with funding from the Victorian Government’s Social Housing Growth Fund. Matrix Guild has also made a significant contribution to the purchase of three apartments in Nightingale Evergreen with a bequest from the late Sara Elkas. Sara was a founding member of Matrix Guild, an organisation with a strong connection to WPI.
