Col would be truly proud

In the lead up to Reconciliation Week, Aboriginal Housing Company (AHC) CEO Michael Mundine and General Manager Lani Tuitavake took Karine Shellshear on a tour of the student housing, named in honour of her late husband, which has underwritten the financing of the Pemulwuy Project.

Uncle Danny Eastwood Rejuvenates Mural

Pemulwuy’s Building Manager

Gadigal man Gary Ward – better known locally as “Gaz” – commenced his job as the Pemulwuy Project’s Building Manager in December 2020.

Welcoming tenants

As we near completion of our affordable housing, landscaping and civil works teams have been busy installing new roads, paving and gardens.

Ready for our tenants

Our affordable housing is nearing completion – providing people with a great opportunity to live in a wonderful inner-city location. Redfern offers you everything you need right at your doorstep – train station, schools, cafes, restaurants, shops, local services, parks, community, and easy access to the city, universities, and TAFE.

Elouera Tony Mundine Gym shapes up

Our gym manager Alex Tui and Uncle Micky were on site at the new Elouera Tony Mundine Gym last week with a photographer. Alex uploaded a number of photos on social media afterwards and was happy to report that there was a great buzz and excitement among former gym members when they saw the bare bones of the new gym.

Affordable housing first

While the majority of the country has been working at home during the Covid-19 lockdown, the construction industry has been able to continue with a few adjustments to allow for safe environments for workers.

Construction commenced

Construction commenced on the Aboriginal Housing Company’s (AHC) Pemulwuy Project in March. The AHC team was excited to see two large cranes erected on site in July. The workers put the cranes together like a giant meccano set, and carefully maneuvered the pieces into place.

Celebrating 46 years

The Aboriginal Housing Company was founded due to the lack of appropriate and affordable housing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The very first board meeting was held at the registered office at 57 Louis Street, Redfern on 25 July, 1973, the same day as the AHC’s Certificate of Incorporation of Public Company was issued by the Corporate Affairs Commission.

Turning of the Soil

Sydney 26 March 2019: Today we were proud and honoured to hold our ‘Turning of the Soil’ Ceremony for the Pemulwuy Project, Redfern, to signify the commencement of construction on the land, formerly known as “The Block”. Located between Louis Street and the Railway Corridor opposite Redfern train station, the Pemulwuy Project will see the redevelopment of the land into three precincts.
