GroupGSA delivers social housing for the future

Words by Lisa-Maree Carrigan

GroupGSA has delivered an affordable housing and retirement living hybrid model that successfully addresses urgent housing needs.

In western Sydney, GroupGSA has pioneered a new experiment by Anglicare to successful combine affordable build-to-sell apartments with social housing.

The developments are on three sites: Mount Druitt, Fairfield and Liverpool, are a groundbreaking Australian-first. The social housing components are designed specifically for women aged over 55, who are expected to be the fastest-growing age group to experience homelessness.

Anglicare has tackled this worrying statistic by integrating social housing developments that blend retirement with affordable and supportive housing.
