New Homes Coming To Wooloowin

A new residential development in Wooloowin is bringing in more than 150 new homes to the suburb.

Despite several objections from local residents, Council has approved the proposed residential development at 22 Morris Street, Wooloowin on 5 June 2018.

The integrated housing development is one of the latest projects of Cedar Woods. The 3.8-hectare estate aims to provide a connected community which is just five kilometres from the CBD and walking distance to public transport.

Plans for Bexley include the development of three mid-rise premium apartment buildings with 85 premium terrace homes.

As part of the project, demolition at the former convent site in Wooloowin will be carried out by the developer and heritage buildings will be preserved and adapted for multipurpose residential and community use.

The project will transform the original 1889-built laundry building into residences. On the other hand, the former convent built in 1912 will probably become a child care centre.

The development will also feature a community centrepiece consisting of 4,000 sqm of an onsite recreational park. It will include a community park with car and bicycle parking for visitors. The development will also include a heritage trail to pay homage to the history of the site.

According to the proposal, the developer will deliver the project over a five-year period.
