One of the most recent additions to the growing list of critical social infrastructure projects by Kane Constructions is the $47 million Elger Street, Glebe Social Housing Development for the NSW Land and Housing Corporation. The redevelopment of the site is a critical step forward for the State and Local governments, in their long term strategy to provide greater access to public housing.
Located in the leafy inner city suburb of Glebe, just south of the former Wentworth Park Greyhounds track, between Cowper and Bays Streets, the project represents an important milestone for Kane in NSW, as the scale and nature of our projects continue to grow.
In late June, Kane were awarded the project to deliver 158 social housing dwellings across 2 Sites. Lot 13 to the north, also known as Building B will comprise 48 apartments over 6 stories. Lot 14 to the south (Building D) is 3 attached blocks ranging from 6 to 9 levels will contain the remaining 110 apartments.
The Design and Construct project will be delivered under a GC21 (Ed.2) Contract with DEM Architects as our main consultant, with the works due for completion in early 2018.
