$10m Logan units part of public housing restructure

THE state government has launched a $10.5 million seniors accommodation project in Logan as part of a plan to make better use of public housing assets.

Under the plan, seniors wanting to downsize from larger public housing properties in the Logan Housing Service Centre area will be given first opportunity to move in to the new units.

Brisbane Housing Company joined forces with the state to build the 35 state-of-the-art units in Thornhill St, Springwood.

BHC chief executive David Cant said the development was exclusively for public housing tenants who were aged over 55.

“We are excited to build on the success of our award-winning Caggara House apartments in Mt Gravatt, and provide more new, high-quality homes for seniors,” he said

“The development will also free up public housing for growing families who need more bedrooms and larger yards.”

Mr Cant said people interested in transferring to Thornhill St should contact BHC to find out more about the development.
