About the Project

Block 32 (150 Dan Leckie Way) introduces a unique housing typology for families in a neighbourhood dominated by one- and two-bedroom units catering to singles and young couples. The stacking and interlocking of podium units reduces the number of common corridors to achieve increased amenity within the units. The emphasis on shared public spaces, glazed corridors and large two-storey units creates a secure and inviting living environment for families.

The 41-storey tower and eight-storey podium provide a total of 427 units and 48,083 square metres of social housing and amenities and 631 square metres of non-residential amenities. The base of the tower includes an event space, a communal kitchen, amenity rooms and day-lit laundry facilities. The tower contains a range of one-, two- and three-bedroom flat floor units as well as completely barrier-free units. The podium accommodates three-, four- and five-bedroom units. Two levels of parking and an internalized service area are located within the space below the elevated outdoor courtyard. Targeting LEED Gold.
