For the past few years, Marrickville residents have patiently watched as the new Nightingale Marrickville project has taken shape over Illawarra Road. Nightingale Marrickville is a ground-breaking affordable housing project consisting of 51 teilhaus micro apartments, space-efficient, small footprint homes that are available for people to rent at rates 20 per cent lower than market value. The project has been a joint project made possible by the work of Fresh Hope Communities, the welfare arm and Public Benevolent Institution entity of churches of Christ in NSW and the ACT. A ballot has been held for potential residents and people should start moving in shortly. This is just one of a raft of new affordable housing projects in the Inner West, and I acknowledge in particular the work of Inner West Council to increase the supply of affordable housing, with Council investigating how some of its carparks might be able to be repurposed for affordable housing. It's clear that the housing affordability crisis will require out-of-the box thinking and collaborations such as those between Nightingale and Fresh Hope and I congratulate all involved in this extraordinary project.
